If you think about cryptocurrencies as virtual objects that can be collected but never really spent, well you are on the wrong path. Read on to see how everyday men and women are using crypto and other digital currencies to make payments online.

Jus the credit card you have in your wallet, you can use cryptocurrencies for online shopping.
Shoes, bags, jewellery, beauty products, furnishing and travels too. With cryptocurrencies, you can buy anything, easily and quickly.

In the past 10 years, cryptocurrencies have been so successful to convince brands and international e-commerce companies to introduce them as a payment method.

Starbucks, Burger King, Subway, Nike, and Kodak are only a few of the big companies that decided to bet on crypto coins, both in real and online shops.
But what are the online shops where you can buy with cryptocurrencies?
Here’s a list of 5 websites where you can literally empty your wallet on!

1. Shop using cryptocurrency on Reeds Jewelry
Reeds is a jewelry American chain, and from 2014 they accept cryptocurrencies to buy both in person and on their online shops. The company has always been innovative when it comes to technology. They launched their very first website in 1998 when it was still not considered as a priority in that field. No wonder why on their e-commerce store it is possible to buy everything with cryptocurrencies: Anything from rings, bracelets, necklaces, Rolex, and many more.

Among the luxury brands, you will also find Gucci, Michael Kors, Montblanc, Pandora, and Swarovski. Run, get your wallet and go on Reed’s website, where the sales section is without any doubt very interesting!

2. Shop using cryptocurrency on Amazon
The giant of online shopping doesn’t need any introduction, so let’s jump right in and talk about how you can buy your favourite products with cryptocurrencies.
Only recently Amazon opened its doors to cryptocurrencies, thanks to the partnership with Moon, which released an extension for the browser that allows users to buy using their digital wallet as a payment option.
Amazon receives cryptocurrencies but is Moon converts them into payments. How? these are technical aspects that don’t matter, as long as we can pay with our Bitcoin wallets that’s all that matters.

3. Shop using cryptocurrency on Overstock
Would you like to buy a couch, rug, or new curtains for your bedroom?
You can do it by paying with cryptocurrencies on Overstock.com, the first online retailer to accept Bitcoins payments from 2014. For interior design lovers, the website doesn’t need any introduction!

It’s the perfect (virtual) place to furnish your new house, with a quick payment method like the cryptocurrencies one!

4. Shop using cryptocurrency on Expedia
What if I tell you that you can organize a trip everywhere paying with cryptocurrencies?
Are you still thinking cryptocurrencies are just virtual “things” to collect?
I think the answer is no! Everyone gets shocked when you realize that Expedia accepts cryptocurrencies payments. You can book anything you want. A flight, a holiday, any service offered by the company. And you can choose crypto as a payment method.
Thanks to a partnership with Coinbase, you will be redirected to a website that will allow you to pay with your digital wallet.
The price will be converted and you will pay a small fee, but the payment method won’t change the policy refund.
You can fly where you want, paying with this real coin, even if it is still far from our daily habits. It’s a good idea to get familiar with it. Its slowly being integrated everywhere. I know it was a long time ago now and some of you may not have been alive, but the internet took a while to fully integrate into society, and look where we are today! That something to think about.

5. Shop using cryptocurrency on Virgin Galactic
Let’s keep talking about travels, but let’s think about something so crazy that you never thought you could do in the real world.
It sounds like a nerd adventure, but Virgin Galactic allows you to travel into space and buy a ticket with cryptocurrencies.
We left this option at last because it really is beyond the limits of online shopping, but it gives you a clear idea of how the world is changing.
Virgin Galactic is a space tourism company that wants everyone who desires it, to live an astronaut experience.
Of course, it is a really extreme experience, but nothing stops you from buying a ticket on Expedia, landing in America, and flying in space. Paying all with cryptocurrencies.
The new borders of online shopping will be all different.
