How to shop with Bitcoin in Spain

As you may know, most online and retail stores don’t accept bitcoin and crypto as a payment method in Spain and it is still difficult to use bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies for your everyday shopping and needs. But there is a clever workaround which is simple and safe. In this post, we will explain how you can shop with bitcoin in Spain. For example, you will learn how you can use bitcoin to buy electronics from El Corte Inglés and everyday needs from or a pair of shoes from Foot Locker or Zalando. Or how to use crypto at Google Play, iTunes, Steam, or Netflix just to mention a few.

The trick is to buy gift cards with bitcoin. You buy the gift card of the brand or store you want to shop at using bitcoin or another crypto (e.g. Dash and Litecoin) and use it during the checkout.

What is it?

A gift card is also known as a gift certificate, or a gift voucher is a prepaid stored-value money card issued by a brand or retailer. It is to be used as an alternative to cash for purchases within a particular store. So for example, if you have a 200 Euro Amazon Spain gift card, you can buy up to 200 Euro worth of products at store by redeeming the gift card instead of paying in credit card.

Gift cards can be redeemed online on the retailer’s website and/or directly at the store. It depends on the retailer’s policy. Gift cards used online typically have a pin code to be inserted on the retailer’s e-commerce site. Gift cards to be used at the retailer’s store sometimes contain a barcode. You can generally print out the barcode or keep a copy of it on your phone and show it to the cashier when you pay.

One interesting thing you should know is that gift cards or vouchers are anonymous. So, as the name suggests, you can use them for your own purchases or give them as a gift. How cool is that? You can use bitcoin to give a nice gift to a friend or loved one.
