Shopify has brought on GoCoin, giving its 120,000 supported merchants the option of accepting litecoin and dogecoin payments. Like with bitcoin, holders of these currencies pay their dollar equivalent value and the merchant can receive the entire amount in fiat.

Shopify aims to help anyone looking to sell a product set up a turnkey e-commerce solution.

They are reportedly Canada’s first startup to reach a $1 billion valuation after the dot.com bubble.
