- Amazon... !
- Expedia. One of the world’s largest travel sites allows its customers to purchase flights, hotels, and other travel accommodations via their partner Coinbase.

If you use a Visa or an American Express card to make your purchase, Expedia is going to receive your payment in Dollars from Visa or American Express. Coinbase, just like Visa or American Express, is a commerce platform that just happens to accept Bitcoin and distribute traditional currency.
- Overstock.com Patrick Byrne, who has established himself as one of the world’s leading business voices with his work at Overstock.com, is an adamant supporter of Bitcoin. That is why his company accepts Bitcoin payments on its site and even holds some Bitcoin instead of converting it all to a traditional currency.
- WordPress. One of the world’s largest platforms for web development, WordPress was an early adopter of Bitcoin. Since 2012 they have allowed users to make payments with the currency.
