TigerDirect Expands into Canada with BitPay

BitPay, the world leader in business solutions for the Bitcoin digital currency, is working with TigerDirect to expand the payment options for TigerDirect’s Canadian online store with bitcoin.

Canadians can immediately make an online purchase with bitcoin through BitPay from TigerDirect’s extensive line of electronics, tablets, phones, office supplies, video games and more at www.TigerDirect.ca.

“We are very pleased with our BitPay implementation on TigerDirect.com and are excited to roll it out across our other sites. As of today, TigerDirect.ca and our mobile/tablet sites will be accepting bitcoin as a payment method,” said Steven Leeds, Director of Marketing for TigerDirect.

TigerDirect’s partnership with BitPay has been successful due to the online retailer’s choice to carry bitcoin mining equipment as well as the simple checkout process offered by BitPay. The two companies first teamed up in January to accept bitcoin payments from TigerDirect’s customers in the United States. TigerDirect was the first major US electronics retailer to accept bitcoin and now will be the first major Canadian retailer. TigerDirect Canada plans on using BitPay to process sales for their 300,000+ products online.

The leading electronics retailer chose BitPay after months of research into bitcoin payment processors because BitPay is focused on offering tools and features merchants like TigerDirect need to make it easy to adopt bitcoin. The US team had such a positive experience with BitPay that the Canadian branch is now implementing BitPay.

“TigerDirect has taken an interest in bitcoin not only as a payment option but also a new product line through the sale of bitcoin mining equipment,” said Paige Freeman, Vice President of Sales at BitPay.

“It is great to be working with an organization who is as just enthusiastic about bitcoin as we are.”
