As of yesterday, Overstock.com now accepts Bitcoin! That's right; you can buy any of the thousands of great products we offer using Bitcoin. We've partnered with Coinbase to become the first major retailer to accept the digital currency.
So far, the response has been amazing. In our first day alone, we had over 800 Bitcoin orders. It just goes to show that there is a Bitcoin community excited about buying everything from sofas to designer clothes, TVs to jewelry in the digital currency. In fact, as the first major retailer to accept Bitcoin, Overstock.com is really expanding the possibilities of Bitcoin purchases.
If you're unfamiliar with the digital currency, check out our Bitcoin page, where you can learn how to get and use bitcoins.
