Where can you shop with Ethereum? Now that you know how to store, buy and sell Ether, you might be curious to know where you can spend it. As mentioned in the previous articles (read "How to buy Ether"), Ether is not as popular as Bitcoin. At least not among the merchants. However, Ether has some advantages over Bitcoin.
First of all, a Bitcoin transaction can take anywhere from ten minutes to several hours to process. A transaction made with Ether can be processed in one minute. Secondly, many traders left Bitcoin in December last year because the transaction fee rose to $ 50. This made it impossible to accept Bitcoin, and many traders switched to Ethereum as a result.

Stores directories for merchants who accept Ethereum
There are some websites that provide lists of merchants who accept Ethereum. However, the most complete directory I could find is Coinpayments.net. This directory does not only cover Ethereum, but any cryptocurrency token that you can think of. With this directory, you can filter your searches based on the type of store you are looking for and the cryptocurrency you want to pay.
Use an Ethereum debit card
You are not limited to paying merchants directly in Ether. There are ways to get around the fact that not all places accept cryptocurrency tokens. One of these ways is to acquire an Ethereum debit card. Just like a Bitcoin debit card, an Ethereum debit card will allow you to store, convert and spend Ether. It works like a prepaid Visa / Mastercad and usually comes with a & r; mobile app. Through the app, you can access your Ethereum wallet and instantly convert your Ether into cash. Once your Ether has been converted to the currency of your choice (usually USD, GBP or EUR), the card works like any other Visa or Mastercard.
Third party websites
If you do not feel comfortable using an Ethereum debit card, it is also an option for third-party sites. TheBigCoin.io is a website that allows you to buy anything online with Ether and other cryptocurrencies. It does not require you to create an account or enter any personal data. Just copy and paste the URL of the product page and you can purchase with Ether in just a few minutes. Third-party sites like these open up the opportunity to spend your cryptocurrency in any online store like Amazon and eBay. Although these e-commerce stores do not accept Ether on their own, sites like TheBigCoin can function as intermediaries.
