Want to complete your online shopping tasks with bitcoin? Well, spending your money at more than 100 well-known national brands with bitcoin has never been easier with eGifter, a three-year-old company that offers a large inventory of retail gift cards as well as providing a social and mobile experience.

Working with Coinbase to process all of its bitcoin transactions, eGifter announced that it sells eGift Cards from a wide variety of recognized brands, companies, restaurants and charities, such as Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Lands’ End, JCPenney, Domino’s Pizza, CharityChoice and much more. Each of these gift cards can be purchased with the digital currency and there are no additional fees for paying with bitcoin.

It’s very simple to get started: browse to its gift cards page to purchase a gift card or download its Android or iOS mobile app and at the checkout section be sure to select bitcoin as the payment method.

Coinbase, eGifter partnership

Last summer, eGifter confirmed that it would be collaborating with Coinbase to process bitcoin payments. Tyler Roye, CEO of eGifter, said in a press release in August that since bitcoin is becoming immensely popular and is being accepted by a growing number of merchants and online consumers this would be the perfect time to start permitting bitcoin as a payment option.

Roye added in his statement:

“Our partnership with Coinbase puts us in a great position to serve our members and to be on the cutting edge of its growth. Coinbase enables its partners to take Bitcoin without having to actually take possession of the Bitcoin and be exposed to market fluctuations. Coinbase simply sets the price in real-time and calculates the amount of Bitcoin needed to complete the transaction, then they take the Bitcoin payment in our app and pay us in US dollars.”

Coinbase maintains more than 200,000 users and processes approximately 138,000 transactions each month.
