美国最大电子产品零售商接受比特币

First major US electronics retailer now accepts Bitcoin

美国第一大电子产品零售商TigerDirect宣布,从今日起其线上商店提供的20余万种商品均支持使用比特币支付。该公司称其为迄今为止支持数字货币支付的首家美国主要电子产品零售商和最大公司。

美国知名在线购物网站Overstock.com不久前开始支持比特币支付,TigerDirect与之相比,规模尚不好区分,但是TigerDirect的母公司Systemax的规模显然要大的多。2012年,Overstock.com收入为11亿美元,而Systemax收入则高达35.4亿美元。


Tiger Direct today announced it has started accepting Bitcoin as a method of payment on over 200,000 products via both its desktop and mobile websites. The company claimed it is the first major US electronics retailer and the largest company to date to accept the digital currency.

Overstock.com recently started accepting Bitcoin, and while it’s unclear how big TigerDirect is in comparison, its parent company Systemax is certainly larger. In 2012, Overstock.com saw revenues of $1.1 billion while Systemax generated $3.54 billion.

“TigerDirect has always been on the forefront of alternative online payment methods and delivering the most convenient ways for our customers to shop,” Steven Leeds, Director of Corporate Marketing at TigerDirect, said in a statement. “With individuals building their own high-powered PCs with parts offered on our site to mine Bitcoins, it’s a logical fit.”


TigerDirect says it is using BitPay as its payment processor, a popular choice for sites looking to add Bitcoin support. Furthermore, the retailer says it will also sell the computer components used to mine the currency as well; it has partnered with AMD to build what it says will be the largest assortment of mining graphic cards in the industry. Check it out here.

To pay with Bitcoin on TigerDirect, you’ll have to follow these three steps according to the announcement page:

Get A Wallet: A Bitcoin wallet is a digital wallet which stores your Bitcoin balance and allows you to transact with other users online and offline. All wallets can communicate with each other similar to emails, so you can send and receive Bitcoins to anyone regardless of the type of wallet they use.
Shop TigerDirect.com: Once you have your wallet setup and ready to go, you can buy over 200,000 products, including the latest deals.

Checkout: After selecting your products, simply hit checkout and select Bitcoin as your payment method.
