Most people think of Bitcoin as an alternative way to pay online, and for the most part, that statement is true. Even though there are brick-and-mortar locations where one can spend Bitcoin in its purest form, most of the retail activity are taking place on the Internet. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, as Bitcoin – and the Internet – are global platforms.
Bitcoin.com is not only the place to be for all information regarding Bitcoin or the latest news in the world of blockchain and digital currency, as it will soon offer a new feature to spend Bitcoin online. Spendabit, as this platform is called, collects all of the information from the best Bitcoin merchants on the Internet, and making it accessible through the Bitcoin.com platform, will help drive consumer adoption of digital currency across the globe.

Most of these services will ship to various locations around the world, making this Bitcoin.com feature accessible and valuable to international Bitcoin enthusiasts.
Additionally, there is a handy link near the top of the Spendabit page for users who do not own [enough] bitcoins to make the purchase.

Another feature worth noting is how the Bitcoin.com page will inform users about alternative ways to spend Bitcoin as well. For example, when the users search for an item that is not available online, the page helpfully mentions they can get a Coinsbank Bitcoin debit card. These types of cards can be used wherever major credit and debit cards are accepted.
When using the Spendabit feature on the Bitcoin.com website, users will be presented with so many different platforms to purchase from; they will discover new merchants as well.
