A recently established partnership with Coinbase is now allowing the giant Dell to accept Bitcoin payments through its website. All the items available on Dell.com, including the Alienware line, can now be bought with cryptocurrency.
According to Coinbase, so far Dell is the largest ecommerce company to officially accept Bitcoin. The brand makes nearly $60 billion in annual sales.
The Bitcoin payment option was implemented on Dell’s website in just two weeks, thanks to Coinbase’s team, which worked closely with the electronic giant during this period.
“Bitcoin is a new payment option intended to offer even more flexibility for customers”, Dell published on its website. In a special support page, the company also explains the three steps that the clients must follow to pay for their items with cryptocurrency:
When you’re ready to make a purchase, just add your items to your cart, fill out your shipping details and choose Bitcoin as your payment method. When you submit your order, you’ll be taken to Coinbase.com to complete your purchase.
From here, you can choose to pay directly from your bitcoin wallet by using the generated payment address or by scanning the QR code with your smartphone. Or, if you have a Coinbase account, you can log in and send payment directly.
Once your payment has been processed, you’ll be returned to Dell.com for order confirmation. It’s as simple as that!
To celebrate the good news, Dell will soon be announcing a special offer. We are talking about a Alienware promotion where customers can save 10 percent off a new Alienware system purchase when paying with Bitcoin.
