One of the most popular blockchain projects globally, TRON has announced that it will integrate with Shopping.io. The partnership continues Shopping.io’s trend of collaborating with and onboarding the biggest names in the blockchain industry. Shopping.io provides a necessary bridge between cryptocurrency and existing e-Commerce stores, making crypto payments seamless.
The crypto shopping site now integrates over 100 cryptocurrencies, lowering the barriers to adoption for the industry as a whole.
From today, $TRX holders will be able to spend their tokens on Amazon (US, UK, CA, DE, FR, IT, and ES), eBay, Walmart, and Etsy via Shopping.io. The integration offers an additional powerful utility for TRON, a fact not lost on its founder Justin Sun.
We are thrilled to be partnering with Shopping.io to allow our community to use $TRX on major E-commerce websites like Amazon,eBay, and Etsy.”
Sun, August 25
Via Shopping.io $TRX holders can use the tokens to purchase a host of everyday items, electronics and novelty pieces. In addition, to encourage TRON users to try Shopping.io, the company is offering a 2% discount on all $TRX purchases. This special offer commences on August 25 and lasts for a limited period of two weeks.
According to Shopping.io, the site is currently “the only international crypto onboarding platform that allows users to spend their cryptocurrencies on popular eCommerce websites.” Unfortunately, the bulk of eCommerce stores still don’t offer an option for payment using digital assets, which creates additional friction points for users who would otherwise have to convert their crypto to fiat to purchase goods and services.
Shopping.io argues that their eCommerce bridge lowers barriers and accelerates their vision of a mainstream crypto future. The partnership between Shopping.io and TRON marks another major milestone in pursuit of that dream.
Arbel Arif, CEO and owner of Shopping.io, was delighted with the latest partnership deal as the company aggressively pursues integrations with big players from across the crypto sphere.
We are so excited to give TRON holders the ability to shop with us! Getting to work with TRON was a huge goal this year as we push to collaborate with every big name in crypto.”
The TRON partnership is another impressive agreement in a string of good news stories for the site, which also recently closed deals with Avalanche, Hokk Finance, VeChain and PayPal. In addition, the launch of Shopping.io was announced in November 2020, and in a short time, the company has established itself and matured into an important part of the blockchain sector.
As for TRON, the high-throughput platform recently celebrated reaching all-time highs both for daily transactions and daily new accounts. Moreover, by integrating with Shopping.io, the network has added another important use case for its native token beyond speculation.
