The benefits of using Oshi.
Oshi leverages the bitcoin network to gain several advantages over traditional payment processing services and ecommerce platforms.
There’s no cost for promoting your business on Oshi. You only pay when a customer actually purchases your goods or services through the app. When they do purchase through Oshi, it’s often cheaper than their current payment processor - sometimes dramatically cheaper.
Most businesses already run various promotions. Incorporating bitcoin into the promotions they already run is a great way to differentiate themselves.
For example, ‘buy 10 coffees, get 1 free’ punch cards are boring. How about buy 10 coffees, get $3 in bitcoin free?
Happy hour specials are a dime a dozen. $2 off a drink during happy hour? Boring. $2 in free bitcoin on every drink during happy hour? Now we’re talking!
Oshi gives small businesses an easy way to interface with and accept bitcoin. Whether they have no interest in bitcoin, or are bitcoin fanatics, businesses can leverage this revolutionary technology to empower themselves and their customers.
Regular Oshi purchases cost just 2.5% per transaction, and Oshi automatically give 1.5% back to the customer as bitcoin rewards. Oshi promotions cost 2.5% + whatever the business would like to give back as rewards.
Using bitcoin, payment settlement is instant and final, meaning no one can reverse the charge. Online commerce now comes with guarantees for the business.
Now that they’re participating in local ecommerce, business can sell their goods and services online in voucher form, receiving the money up-front. This can not only give businesses a quick injection of capital for their day-to-day operations, but also help them plan for the coming week or month, since they have a better idea of what to expect given the number of vouchers they’ve sold.
Businesses often utilize social media to market themselves. While they may be getting engagement, how much of that is actually converting to sales?
With Oshi, you can post your social media-like promotions and have customers buy it, all from the same platform, for cheaper than if they were to swipe their card in-store.
Every time you swipe your card, wealth is leaving your community in the form of payment processing fees. Lightning keeps local wealth local, outside the reach of financial institutions and intermediaries. Stop letting Wall Street take their cut - Keep it all on Main Street.
