Where Can I Use Bitcoin to Buy Stuff Online?
Those with spare bitcoins to spend usually look at the internet as a safe haven that offers access to various types of products and services. While various brick-and-mortar stores are starting to accept Bitcoin as a legit tender now, online retailers still offer the best deals and attract the majority of attention for a reason.
Overstock.com, for example, is among the more popular big-time online retailers offering the option to make payments with bitcoin. The site’s offer covers various products, ranging from couches and rugs to PC hardware. The platform launched its Bitcoin support in early 2014, with the range of supported currencies nowadays including Ethereum, Dash, Bitcoin Cash, and others. It also offers refunds for whatever you buy with Bitcoin, combined with its parallel use with coupons and gift cards.
Gift card platforms such as eGifter and Gyft allow you to spend BTC to buy gift cards that can be used at stores that do not support direct purchases with bitcoins at the moment. Once acquired, these cards can be used with Amazon, Home Depot and other retailers.
Shopify is an e-commerce giant which provides the online environment in which the merchants can open their own virtual selling stands, not unlike what you find on eBay. At the moment, tens of thousands of merchants on it are readily accepting Bitcoin via the use of BitPay. Unfortunately, the only snag here is the fact that you’ll have to check out and find these stores yourself, as the site does not yet offer the comprehensive list of BTC-friendly sellers.
The same goes for Etsy, an e-commerce platform dedicated to the sales of handmade and vintage items, with a growing number of merchants offering support for Bitcoin purchases.
BitPlaza is yet another e-retailer, promising easy support for shopping with Bitcoin. The platform’s offer ranges from cosmetics to groceries and electronics. In addition to visiting its online shopping center, you can spend your hard-earned BTC with the help of dedicated Android and iOS apps.
If you need a gift for that special geek in your life (including yourself!), anything ranging from Marvel action heroes to old-school game memorabilia can be found at Geekorama.
