Sheetz, the Pennsylvania-based convenience store chain, has announced it will enable digital currency payments to provide customers with the ability to pay for items inside the store and at the pump, reports the Philadelphia Business Journal.
Sheetz will begin accepting digital currencies at select Sheetz Cafe stores later this summer with a planned rollout later in the year for acceptance at Sheetz's fuel pumps as well.
Sheetz has locations across Pennsylvania, including stores in Morgantown and Reading. The chain also has locations in Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, Ohio, and North Carolina.
Digital currency payments will be enabled via Flexa, an instant, scalable, climate neutral and pure-digital payment network that supports bitcoin, etherm litecoin, dogecoin and other cryptocurrencies, reports PBJ.com. Sheetz rewards members will have the option to link their loyalty accounts when paying with Flexa-enabled apps.
