Content and services e-commerce company Qpass signed an agreement with Web currency company beenz.com that lets Qpass merchant partners accept beenz as a payment option for digital commerce transactions.

The deal expands the range of payment options offered by Qpass for digital commerce, including all major credit cards, debit card, and direct Internet Service Provider (ISP) billing.

Through its end-to-end Digital Commerce Service, Qpass provides the transaction infrastructure behind such sites as The Wall Street Journal Interactive Edition, New York Times on the Web, latimes.com, Corbis, NHL.com, Dreamlife.com and Forbes.com.

Under terms of the agreement, consumers will be able to spend beenz for digital purchases, such as news and information, images, music, videos, services and financial data, from Qpass partners.

Consumers earn beenz by visiting, interacting with, or shopping at participating Web sites. The company says it has more than a million registered users.
