Pet services platform Wag! is now accepting cryptocurrencies including Dogecoin through BitPay. Customers can use cryptocurrency to purchase Wag! Credits, which can be redeemed for various services. The company has also partnered with Greater Good Charities to donate a portion of the proceeds from each crypto transaction to carbon-offsetting environmental efforts through the planting of a tree.
“As a technology company, we’re always innovating and exploring new offerings to ensure that we’re providing our customers with what they want and need to care for their furry family members,” said Garrett Smallwood, CEO of Wag!. “In today’s world, that includes accepting many forms of payments, and we’re very excited to have integrated crypto into the Wag! platform to make it easier for people to pay however they please. Plus, how could we not accept Dogecoin as a form of payment?”
“As crypto increasingly becomes a preferred way to pay across the world, forward-thinking companies, like Wag!, are realizing how important it is to accept this form of payment,” said BitPay CCO Sonny Singh. “Crypto is a $2 trillion industry that’s all about creating an open financial system in the world, and Wag! will benefit greatly from enabling its users to participate in the future of payments through a consumer-driven initiative.”
