Coinzone, a bitcoin merchant payment gateway, has launched its merchant payment services in Poland.

The payment platform will allow Polish merchants and businesses to accept bitcoin payments online or in-store in their local currency, the Polish Zloty.

The company’s payment services feature no subscriptions or monthly fees and also plug-ins for e-commerce platforms such as Magento, osCommerce, Prestashop, WooCommerce and X-Cart.

Using Coinzone’s payment services, pay-outs can be delivered quickly into service users’ in-country bank accounts irrespective of the balance.

The expansion will also allow freelancers, online merchants and businesses like coffee shops and taxi drivers in Poland to tap into a bitcoin community.

The launch of bitcoin services in Poland is part of the company’s ongoing European expansion.

Coinzone CEO and co-founder Manuel Heilmann said: "Coinzone’s payment gateway offers multiple advantages for merchants. Quick and easy to use and requiring no special hardware, our solutions offer a simple and secure way to accept Bitcoin with no associated risk."
