Ecommerce Companies That Accept Bitcoin

  1. NewEgg. NewEgg is an online retailing powerhouse, particularly when it comes to hardware and electronic gadgets. It was one of the pioneers among the early bitcoin adopters. The platform supports three ways of paying with bitcoin, including web purchases, wallet-based transfers, and transactions made on smartphones. A caveat: bitcoins are not accepted if you want to spend them on digital gift cards, preorders, and subscriptions, so you better make sure to check the fine print in the platform’s terms of service. Since then, it is now the first to accept litecoin.
