Dell Accepts Bitcoins in Canada, Becomes Largest Merchant to Accept Currency Internationally

Dell is now accepting bitcoin as payment in the UK and Canada.

This makes Dell the largest merchant to accept bitcoin internationally. The move followed a “successful” US pilot. Dell says purchases of up to $50,000 have been made with bitcoin.

“This form of payment is clearly resonating with consumer, small and medium businesses,” Dell, which uses third-party payment processor Coinbase, says.

“Through the expansion of Bitcoin we’re enabling new levels of convenience for our customers, making it easier for them to do business with Dell,” said Paul J. Walsh, CIO of Dell.
