Dell expands bitcoin support to UK and Canada

Consumers in the UK and Canada can now make online purchases in bitcoin from Dell, making it one of the largest merchants to accept the digital currency internationally.

The company will process bitcoin transactions in the two countries through its partnership with Coinbase, allowing customers to opt to pay with bitcoin at Dell’s online checkout.

Dell started accepting online bitcoin payments from US-based consumers and small businesses in July. While the company has not released the number of bitcoin transactions the seven month pilot saw, Dell has called the integration “successful”.

“We are seeing purchases across our full product and customer spectrum – from software and peripherals to our business PCs and even our largest transaction to date – north of $50,000 for a highly configured PowerEdge server system,” the company said.
