Okay...let's say you've chosen the type of cryptocurrency in which you'd like to invest, you've found and installed the wallet or wallets that are perfect for you, and you're ready to do your part in keeping the currency active by spending some of it. That's all well and good, you might say...but where and how do I do that? There doesn't seem to really be a Yellow Pages for that kind of thing.
Well, don't you worry. If there's a customer base that's willing to spend money—including cryptocurrency—you can be sure there are business owners, like Overstock for example, who are more than happy to oblige them. Even though the number of vendors who accept digital currency isn't as large as those who take other modes of payment like credit cards—at least, not yet—there are still thousands who have signed on, and who accept alternative currency transactions. Business owners are known for being cautious when new technology and payment methods are introduced, but they do come around when they see a good thing—especially if it benefits their profit margin. Alternative currencies are establishing a track record of popularity—and profitability—that has caught the eye of many of those hesitant merchants—and more are taking notice, and coming aboard, all the time.
Many websites for specific currency types, digital currency exchanges, and other sources, offer extensive lists of merchants who accept alternative currencies as payment for their goods and services. In every single categorical section of the Coin Pursuit website, you'll see links to many of those businesses provided conveniently at the bottom of the screen. You'll also notice that at the bottom of this Merchants section, there are links to several digital currency-friendly businesses—and we plan on expanding those listings as the industry grows. On our website alone, you're only a click or two away from companies who will be more than happy to do business with you.
This section, then, is fully devoted to those merchants who have wisely decided to make cryptocurrency an active part of their business models. We'll cover how you can make transactions with those businesses online, of course, but we'll also take a look at how many brick-and-mortar companies are making it easier for their customers to use their digital currency right inside the store. Are you looking to make a big purchase, but aren't sure if you can do so with alternative currency? We'll let you know how to check if there are purchase limits with the business you're dealing with, or the type of currency you're using. Also, as the saying goes, there's nothing certain in life but death and taxes—and we'll help you keep on the lookout for when local, state and federal taxes apply to your cryptocurrency purchases. As with any other type of financial transaction, there's fine print to be considered; we'll help steer you through it. We'll also study how QR codes are simplifying trades and purchases for investors, consumers and cryptocurrency-friendly businesses.
If you're trying to do business with a vendor or company that doesn't take alternative currencies, you aren't necessarily stuck. You'd be amazed how many business owners have changed their minds about cryptocurrency simply through word-of-mouth from their customers. We'll show you how you can take action toward getting your favorite businesses on board. It might surprise you how receptive they can be to some simple dollars-and-cents feedback. Last but not least, we'll take an in-depth look at an online and email rumor that warns people since digital currency isn't “real money,” consumers are leaving themselves vulnerable.
So, if you've got your investments settled, and you're itching to dive in and make a few purchases with your cryptocurrency, this is the perfect section of our website for you. We'll show you how to track down the businesses who have what you need, provide links and videos to help guide you and we'll also help you to dot all the i's and cross all the t's as they apply to the fine print of your transactions. Your purchases help keep cryptocurrency healthy and vigorous, merchants will love your patronage, and you get new stuff. Everyone wins!
Once you've had a chance to give this section of our site a good look, you'll be ready to discover that using cryptocurrency is just as easy and straightforward as paying for goods and services with your bank account or credit card. Before we move forward, Coin Pursuit invites you to let us know how we're doing here or anywhere else on our site. Your input is what helps keep us up-to-date, and we take pride in being the best source for all your cryptocurrency resources and information.
