(Source: “Dell.com Partners With Coinbase to Become the Largest Ecommerce Merchant to Accept Bitcoin,” Coinbase Blog, 18 July 2014)
Dell is now accepting bitcoin payments from consumers and small business shoppers across the U.S. for all items available on Dell.com, including the Alienware line of products. To date, Dell is the largest ecommerce company to officially accept bitcoin, with nearly $60 billion in annual sales. Head over to Dell.com to view this video guide on Dell’s bitcoin splash page and see the bitcoin payment process in action.
With the Coinbase integration, Dell is able to provide its customers with even more flexibility when it comes to payment options. Coinbase partnered closely with the Dell team to implement bitcoin payments on Dell.com in just two weeks, and we look forward to continuing to support Dell in the coming weeks as they implement additional bitcoin features. For more information about this integration, visit the official Dell.com blog here.
To celebrate this partnership, Dell will soon be offering a special Alienware promotion where customers can save 10% off a new Alienware system purchase (up to $150 limit) when checking out with bitcoin. Visit Dell.com/bitcoin to learn more.
