American mattress store ‘Beds To Go’ announced that it is open to accepting Shiba Inu (SHIB) as a form of payment on its checkout page. The Tennessee-based family store has been in business for over 30 years and the mattresses are made locally and made in the USA. “Made in the USA to ensure the highest quality,” reads a statement on its website.
Beds To Go spoke and confirmed that they accept Shiba Inu as a legal form of payment.
“We are excited to offer our customers a wide variety of cryptocurrency payment options, including exciting new tokens like Shiba Inu.”
However, delivery is only for customers in the United States and the store does not offer worldwide shipping.
In addition to SHIB, the Maryville-based store also accepts Bitcoin, Ethereum, Dogecoin, Litecoin, and Venmo as payments. Just a few months ago, Beds to Go had placed a full page ad in a local newspaper during Halloween stating that they accept cryptocurrency as payment.
The highlight of the announcement was their latest addition to crypto payments on HEX. It is arguably the first mattress store or any other business in the world to accept HEX as a form of payment. Their website has a ‘Buy with HEX’ tab and customers who pay with HEX get an additional 10% discount. However, the same 10% discount is not available when customers pay with Shiba Inu and other cryptocurrencies.
The store, which is just south of Knoxville, was also featured in a segment on ABC News. “We have to adapt to change. The future is about innovation. I am always open to new ways of thinking,” said the store owner in the segment.
Shiba Inu as payment option
Shiba Inu (SHIB) is becoming widely accepted as a form of payment by companies around the world. NOWPayments has partnered with several retailers across the United States who also offer the option to pay via SHIB. Every month, there is news about a new business coming forward and announcing that they are ready to accept SHIB as payment on their checkout page.
At press time, the Shiba Inu was trading at $0.00002376 and is up 3.5% in 24-hour daily trading. The token is up a staggering +110,281% in the last 365 trading days, making early investors millionaires with their investments.
