Dell expands Bitcoin pilot to the UK


Dell has become the largest UK retailer to accept Bitcoin payments.

The IT company will work with Coinbase, the payment processor company, to allow customers to use Bitcoin in its online store.

The move follows a successful pilot programme in the US last summer, with the service also due to launch in Canada.

Dell claimed that it was seeing "purchases across (its) full product and customer spectrum" with its biggest transaction to date totalling over $50,000.

"This form of payment is clearly resonating with consumer, small and medium businesses," reads Dell’s official blog. "And now we’re excited to take the choice and flexibility this payment option offers global, maintaining our partnership with Coinbase, a trusted and secure third party payment processor, to make this possible."

"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, Dell.
