Newegg Now Accepting Bitcoin Payments
July 2nd, 2014
Newegg is a place that geeks like us have been shopping for computer components and other cool stuff for years. Newegg has now become the most recent company to begin accepting payments in Bitcoin currency.
Newegg says that its customers were some of the earliest Bitcoin miners and are enthusiastic about using the cryptocurrency. Bitpay boasts 99.99% uptime and using the service lets Newegg offer refunds and payment exceptions using the currency.
Bitcoin shoppers on Newegg can complete an order using the Pay with Bitcoin option if they have digital wallet software installed. If the wallet used by the customer is on a smartphone, a QR code can be scanned to pay and finish the transaction. Users with a web-hosted digital wallet can click the View Address link to send the number of coins needed.
