Who accepts Bitcoin?

Who accepts bitcoins as payment? Since Bitcoin is relatively new and many businesses are wary of its price fluctuations, it is not very widely accepted, compared to traditional fiat currencies.

However, retailers and services that accept Bitcoin are more likely to get customers who prefer using cryptocurrencies rather than traditional payment methods.

There are many companies who accept Bitcoin, but it depends on what you exactly need.

If you need gift cards, Gyft and eGifter accept Bitcoin, and their gift cards can be used at one of a wide range of retailers.

If you want something special, probably not mass-produced, Shopify can help.

If you need a gift for that special geek in your life (or for yourself!), ranging from Marvel action heroes to old-school game memorabilia, Geekorama is the way to go.

Do you need something from Amazon, but realized that they do not take Bitcoins? Purse is there to help, since you can swap your Bitcoins for a gift card for Amazon.

If gift cards don’t cut it for you, Overstock is very similar to Amazon, while also accepting a wide range of cryptocurrencies.

Traveling somewhere? Expedia will help you book their hotel for Bitcoin.

Need something else than this? Cryptoallowed is a website that lets you search for retailers that accept Bitcoin for exactly the item you need.

Many places such as cafes and museums will also let you pay with cryptocurrency, but there are not many of those. This, however, means that those who do are more famous! Look them up on coinmap.org, a website which shows you exactly which venues take Bitcoin. There are currently more than 12,000 of them.

A retailer who accepts Bitcoin is sure to gain a bigger following, at least because of the novelty. Sites such as Cryptoallowed and Spendabit will search for the product you need through sites where cryptocurrency is among the payment options.
