More and more small businesses worldwide are starting to accept Bitcoin as a form of payment for goods and services. By adopting this new way of payment businesses are signaling that they are at the forefront of the technological development, want to work with the best customers, care about privacy, and willing to fight fraud.
A software online retailer pcTattletale recently started offering a Bitcoin payment method potentially opening its products to a new segment of clients to whom they were unavailable until now.
Bitcoin, besides being a convenient buying option for may scenarios, can also be the only one option for some people. If you are looking for anonymity and would like to buy a piece of software but don’t want to do it with your credit card or PayPal account, Bitcoin will keep you anonymous. Especially after you perform so called mixing of coins to erase any traces that may lead back to you. But maybe you live in a country where you are not allowed to open a PayPal or bank account. Only about 1 of each 7 adult people on the planet have a chance to have credit cards or PayPal. If you are among them, paying with Bitcoin may be your only solution.
pcTattletale recounts on their blog that recently they had a precisely this kind of client from a remote part of Afghanistan who didn’t have credit card, nor PayPal, wondering how they could make a purchase. At the time, pcTattletale didn’t have an answer for them.
Buying with cryptocurrency online is also safer. There are not credit card numbers to share with a third party that can be stolen by a bad-wishing store owner or a hacker.

In a world where interest in Bitcoin is growing, Bitcoin has been formally recognized by some governments and authorities as a “currency” and require taxing it as income. But many other legislations requiring paying taxes on Bitcoin income, such as the US one, consider it a property which is taxed differently. So do your research for your country to make sure your Bitcoin buying experiences are most pleasant and in line with law.
