"Reduces the cost of the transaction to zero."

There is definitely not a mandated cost associated with using bitcoin. Since it is volatile because it's still in its infancy, and the price changes some between the time you purchase it and the time you spend it, you MAY lose money. You also MAY gain money, which has been the case for 99% of the time it has existed.

Also, getting paid in bitcoin and having it lose money (or gain it as above) is not "another cost", it is THE SAME cost. Just because you received it two different ways doesn't make it twice as bad that it has this volatility you fear.
