Bitcoin as default store currency

Hey everyone,

I'm looking to start an online store using the Buy Button and would like to use Bitcoin as the store's currency. (fixed price in bitcoin rather than converting from USD/GBP etc). I can see XBT in the currencies.js but it isn't an option for the store's currency.

I see others have encountered the same issue in the past but seems like they didn't gain traction:

Furthermore, Bitcoins can be denominated into satoshis (100,000,000 satoshis make up a 1 BTC), I would like to use that as the default denomination if possible.

Thanks,
Cryptoverted

Why are you not comfortable just converting currencies?

I often think about how the world would change if bitcoin were the default choice on all well-known sites like Amazon and other online purchases.

I want to price my products in terms of Bitcoin rather than a fiat value.

 

E.g. 0.001 BTC would be the price. Perhaps adjusted weekly or so.
