Tiger Direct has just announced moments ago that they are now accepting Bitcoins on TigerDirect.ca for Canadian customers.
Tiger Direct.ca has teamed up with BitPay for transaction handling for Bitcoin related transactions on the TigerDirect Canada Site.
“TigerDirect has always been on the forefront of alternative online payment methods and delivering the most convenient ways for our customers to shop,” says Steven Leeds, Director of Corporate Marketing at TigerDirect. “With individuals building their own high-powered PCs with parts offered on our site to mine Bitcoins, it’s a logical fit.”
After several months of reviewing the options for processing Bitcoin, TigerDirect.ca much like it’s American counterpart has chosen BitPay to provide its customers the most reliable means of transacting Bitcoin payments on their website. TigerDirect.ca will not only accept the digital currency as payment, but will also sell the computer components used to mine the currency as well. “We’ve partnered with AMD to build the largest assortment of mining graphic cards from Sapphire, MSI, VisionTek, Diamond and XFX in the industry.” Customers will be able to utilize Bitcoin as payment on both the desktop and mobile websites.
