Coinzone, an Amsterdam-based bitcoin payment solutions provider, has recently forged two partnerships that may benefit the adoption of Bitcoin in Romania.
First is Netopia mobilPay, a Romanian mobile payment processor. The new partnership will allow more than 6000 partner retailers to process bitcoin payments. To facilitate the bitcoin-fiat conversion, Romanian bitcoin exchange BTCXChange’s liquidity is accessed.
Next is ZebraPay, which provides payment processing services with its over 1000 kiosks. With Coinzone, these kiosks will be capable of accepting bitcoin for paying bills, recharging phone cards and making other purchases. Said Adrian Badea, CEO of ZebraPay:

“Innovation is a milestone at ZebraPay and with this implementation we have become the first company of our kind in Romania and from our information the first company worldwide that supports such a comprehensive portfolio of payment methods.”
Coinzone usually charges 1% per transaction, but is waiving this fee for new merchants until March 31, 2015.
Also recently, Dominican Republic-based Mango Pay partnered with Avra to support bitcoin payments at its kiosks.
