Varsity Tutors Starts Accepting Bitcoin Using Coinbase

Varsity Tutors is the latest in a line of traditional (non-tech) businesses who has started accepted bitcoin.  VarsityTutors offers private in-home tutoring in 19 cities across the U.S., helping high school and college-aged students improve their test scores and studies.

They might have won the award for fastest integration, which took just a few hours.  And they are now reaping the benefits of lower transaction fees in their business.

Adding bitcoin as another payment option right along side credit cards and bank transfers is becoming an increasingly easy proposition.
