Bitcoin added to the list of Humble Bundle pay options.

 

Humble Bundle, the charity-focused digital products seller, has adopted Bitcoin as a medium of exchange for their latest offering, The Humble Double Fine Bundle.  As shown in the above screengrab showing the list of their purchasing options, the option to pay in Bitcoin is now being offered via the Coinbase set of merchandising tools.  Because the typical amounts paid for the Humble Bundle packages are often small, this may be an ideal fit for the organization so they can hold their pay processing costs down.  As illustrated by the Coinbase blog: “Take a $0.99 app purchase as an example – credit cards will often charge a base fee of $0.15 or more.  All of a sudden that’s 15% of revenue (and an even higher % of profit!) out the door in payment processing costs.”
