1. Overstock.comIt is worth mentioning Ovestock.com right at the top of our list since, in 2014, it became the first retailer on the internet to accept Bitcoin as a means of payment. As a customer, you can use Bitcoin to purchase anything from electronic devices to novelty items for the home. What’s more, it is not just Bitcoin that you can use but other prominent cryptocurrencies such as Ethereum, Monero, Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash, and Dash as well. According to Bitcoin experts from HowWeTrade: “Overstock is one of the first big brands to accept bitcoin. You can purchase stock images easily using BTC. If you are already using overstock, then make sure you pay with crypto next time.”
2. ExpediaOne of the world’s most frequented online travel agencies, Expedia was also among the first major companies to accept Bitcoin as a means of payment. They actually collaborated with Coinbase to make the new payment option available to customers. For now, the only thing you can pay for with Bitcoin at Expedia is a hotel booking. However, it is quite possible that Bitcoin payments will be extended to other services like flight bookings and travel activities.
3. eGifterWhile Bitcoin is not a staple means of payment for every company selling products and services, you can instead pay in Bitcoin for their gift cards with eGifter.com. eGifter allows you to buy products from all kinds of popular online stores like Amazon, Sephora, Home Depot, and JCPenny.
