Who accepts Bitcoin?

Who accepts Bitcoin?

Bitcoin is consistently reaching new all-time high prices, but it’s still not entirely clear who accepts Bitcoin for purchases. We’ve compiled a list of popular stores and websites that accept Bitcoin, so you can finally put your investment to good use.

The list of places that accept Bitcoin may surprise you.

Expedia

Expedia, an online travel booking agency, has partnered with Coinbase to provide you with a Bitcoin payment option when booking trips.

Overstock

Overstock was one of the first online retailers to accept Bitcoin payments and has consistently been supportive of new cryptocurrencies. In a partnership with ShapeShift, the company now accepts over 40 different alternative coins beyond Bitcoin as well.

Shopify

Shopify gives store owners the opportunity to accept Bitcoin at their shops. As long as you’re shopping at a store that has the integration enabled, you’re good to go.

eGifter

Even if a store doesn’t accept Bitcoin, you may still be able to use a crypto-funded gift card there with eGifter. On eGifter, you can purchase over 250 gift cards to popular stores like Target and Best Buy with Bitcoin.

Craigslist

Craigslist recently added a feature to their website in which a seller can state that they accept cryptocurrency for their transactions. Although there’s no way to pay directly through the platform, this is still a significant step towards mass adoption.

Microsoft

You can purchase products in the Xbox and Windows online stores with Bitcoin.

Virgin Galactic

“To the moon” doesn’t have to be just an ambitious phrase used by crypto investors to describe rocketing coins. You can literally pay for a trip to space with Bitcoin at Virgin Galactic. Sir Richard Branson, the founder of the Virgin enterprises, accepted their first Bitcoin payment for a spaceflight back in 2013.

Everywhere Else

Every day, more and more businesses are announcing that they now accept Bitcoin. Beyond that, you can also use a company such as BitPay or Xapo to fund a prepaid card with your Bitcoin.

New blockchain companies like TenX and OmiseGo are even moving beyond Bitcoin by making it possible to pay with any cryptocurrency at any business that you shop at.
