One of the leading electronic stores in the UK, Scan, is now offering their customers the chance to pay for their goods with Bitcoins. Scan UK will be the first electronics store in the UK to accept cryptocurrencies as a payment method and hope to see an increase in their sales through the new payment method.
Scan announced on their website and Facebook page today that they now accept Bitcoins and that they may consider integrating more cryptocurrencies, such as Litecoin, as a payment method in the future. Scan also proclaims to sell systems that are designed specifically for mining Litecoins, making it ideal for them to also accept the cryptocurrency in the future.
"Scan likes to think of itself as a big innovator, and I believe we're the first retailer in the IT segment to offer this. We're excited about the potential of it. We don't want to follow the crowd, we want to push forward and offer new ideas." Jamen Gorbold from PCR-Online stated to Hexus.net.
Purchasing electronics with Bitcoins on Scans website is very simple, as users simply need to choose Bitcoins as a payment method and follow the steps shown on the screen. They offer the same policies on returning goods and getting a refund with Bitcoins as with everything else.
