Multinational computer technology giant Dell has announced it is now accepting bitcoin from their US customers through a partnership with Coinbase. Dell is now the biggest company accepting bitcoin.

Following today’s announcement, consumers and small business owners in USA are able to purchase all items on Dell.com using bitcoin. To promote the news, the company is offering a 10% discount on all Alienware-brand products to bitcoin buyers. Dell also sells personal computers, servers, data storage devices, cameras and printers.

In a blog post on the announcement, Coinbase indicated that Dell is seeking to provide customers with greater payment flexibility. Once the decision to accept bitcoin was reached, the company moved quickly – implementing payments on the site in just two weeks. Dell CIO Paul Walsh said:

“It is always our goal to respond quickly to our customers and ensure their needs are met. Partnering with Coinbase to implement this solution in 14 days is a prime example of the new, more agile Dell.”

Additional questions centered on the security of bitcoin, with the company noting:

“There are thousands of computers (‘miners’) constantly running software to ensure the safety of the bitcoin network, which has never once been compromised.”

Dell further released a ‘Terms and Conditions‘ page detailing its policies for bitcoin buyers. The company noted that should a purchase qualify for a refund, “any refund due will be remitted to the purchaser via check in US Dollars for the full amount of the purchase price paid at the time of the original transaction, less any applicable restocking fee”.

Refunds for mispayments will be sent to user Coinbase accounts. Those who aren’t able to access a Coinbase account will not be able to receive a refund for missed payment, the company said.
