Bermuda residents may soon be able to pay government fees online with cryptocurrency.
A government RFQ, posted on www.gov.bm, said it was looking to modify the open-source code of the Gov.Uk Pay payment gateway for local use on the gov.bm site.
He added: “The goal is to provide the public with a consistent and uniform experience when paying online.
“The Bermuda Purposes Code Amendment will provide the government with the necessary functionality to:
• Process an online payment: allow customers to enter their credit card details and complete a transaction
• Retrieve Payment Details: Verify the payment by retrieving the status and all relevant payment information.
• Refund Processed Payments — Refund functionality can be implemented to return funds to the customer’s account; and
• Settle Payments — Settle pre-authorized payments so that funds are withdrawn from the customer’s account once a condition is met.
The government said the open source code currently integrates with Worldpay, Stripe, Smartpay and ePDQ.
He added that he would “also be looking to modify the code to integrate First Atlantic Commerce and allow .net payment gateways, accept cryptocurrency and connect to JD Edwards Enterprise One with the provision of an API for the module. JD Edwards Enterprise One Orchestrator”.
The deadline for submission is 5 p.m. next Monday.
