Small businesses can accept cryptocurrency payments through Intuit, which offers a PayByCoin service as part of its QuickBooks Online electronic invoice service.
Before accepting payments in bitcoin, small businesses must first turn on PayByCoin inside QuickBooks Labs and then link a Bitcoin payment processor to their QuickBooks Online account from Company Settings. When a customer chooses to pay the invoice online with bitcoin, the customer is presented with instructions from the linked Bitcoin payment processor to complete the transaction.
The business can then elect to receive final payment in cryptocurrency or another currency. Intuit does not charge a fee for this add-on service but the Bitcoin network typically does.
You can use Bitcoin to deposit funds into your Microsoft account. These funds, however, can only be used to purchase games, movies, and apps in the Windows and Xbox stores; you can't use them to buy things from the Microsoft online store.

If you're a gamer or avid movie fan, this is a reliable service to use.
