Accept Bitcoin in Jimdo Shop
Can you accept Bitcoin in the Jimdo Shop? This is what Jimdo store operators should know if you want to accept Bitcoin.
Without programming knowledge, the layman can click together his own website or Internet store with just a few clicks.
Jimdo provides a closed construction kit system. All building blocks are coordinated with each other and therefore allow to create an Internet presentation and an Internet store very easily.
But the advantage of such a closed system is at the same time a disadvantage for individual adjustments and special requests.
Accept Bitcoin in Jimdo Shop
Jimdo only allows the use of the integrated payment options. That is the payment option PayPal and within the Creator Premium package additionally cash on delivery, invoice, delivery, collection, check by mail and prepayment.
Those who book the Plus payment option can still use Klarna Sofort, Postfinance (in Switzerland) and all payment options offered by Stripe, such as credit card payments.
jimdo does not support other payment providers or payment options.
Jimdo also does not provide an open interface to integrate additional payment providers or payment options itself.
Conclusion: Jimdo does NOT allow you to accept Bitcoin payments.
Those who want to offer Bitcoin payments to their customers will have to wait for either Stripe to offer the payment option, making it available on Jimdo via the Plus payment option.
Another option is to use an alternative store system, such as WooCommerce or Shopware.
But if you think that you could simply switch from Jimdo to WooCommerce, you will also have to be disappointed.
Jimdo also doesn’t offer an export function that would allow you to easily export the products from the Jimdo Shop.
The effort and cost of creating a completely new internet store is disproportionate to the added value you would get if you accepted Bitcoin in your Jimdo store.
If you plan to relaunch your online store in the future, it would be advisable to switch to another store system and then you can also offer Bitcoin & Lightning payments to your customers.
