There are so many places where you can easily spend your Bitcoin to buy the items or services you need, as long as you know where to look. One of the things we do here at DigitalMoneyTimes is educate people on Bitcoin, why it is important and how they can properly use it. Up next in our list of places to spend Bitcoin is All4BTC.
All4BTC – German Gründlichkeit for Bitcoin Shoppers
The best part about All4BTC is that, just like the name suggests, it lets you purchase anything in the world with Bitcoin. There is just one prerequisite though – your address needs to be eligible for having the item shipped directly to your house, as All4BTC does not offer drop shipping or package forwarding services.
With that said, the sky is pretty much the limit! Most traditional online shoppers might use All4BTC to order things from Amazon and pay in Bitcoin; one of the features that Amazon does not offer directly. Or maybe you saw something on eBay you have been after for quite some time, but don’t want to use Paypal or wire transfer.
Regardless of what you are trying to purchase – as long as it’s a physical product – All4BTC can get the job done. Keeping that in mind, there is nothing on the internet that can not be bought with Bitcoin, regardless of whether the retailer accepts Bitcoin payments directly or not. This bypasses the whole, “but that store doesn’t accept Bitcoin”, debacle that most people are faced with right now.
Even though major retailers, such as your Amazon’s, your eBay’s and any other major brand you can possibly imagine, are on board with the service offered, All4BTC can not publicly advertise their names without their consent. If you are ever unsure if the specific item you want can be purchased through All4BTC, simply send them an email, and they will get back to you in a timely manner.
Converting Bitcoin to Fiat To Purchase Your Item
As you may have guessed, the service provided by All4BTC works in a similar fashion to buying the item yourself. While you pay for your order in Bitcoin through the website, All4BTC needs to convert the BTC to fiat currency in order to pay for your order and whilst this is not a deal breaker for most of their customers, at least we “feel” like we paid the order in Bitcoin.
Speaking of converting Bitcoin to fiat currency, All4BTC charges a certain fee depending on the currency in which the order needs to be paid. Supported currencies include EUR (2.38% fee – minimum 5 EUR), USD (5% fee – minimum US$7) and GBP (5% fee – minimum 5 GBP). The reason for higher fees for both USD and GBP is because All4BTC is a German-based Bitcoin company, and exchange rates to USD and GBP invoke extra fees.

No Account Required, Order Tracking Available
A service such as All4BTC stands or falls depending on their customer service. One of the things Bitcoin customers do not appreciate is being forced to create an account in order to try out a new platform or service. All4BTC acknowledged this preference and will not require you to sign up when using their service. All communication is done via email.
On the topic of communication between All4BTC and yourself, you will receive email updates regarding the status of your order. If your order is eligible for a tracking number – and it is provided by the seller – All4BTC will pass on that information. The company prides itself on being as transparent as possible without revealing sensitive customer or retailer data.
