A Tennessee mattress store named ‘Beds To Go‘ announced they would accept HEX as payment on their website’s check-out page. The mattress company also accepts cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, Dogecoin, Litecoin and Venmo. However, the delivery is for customers in the United States only.
Beds To Go ran a full page advertisement during the Black Friday sale in a local Tennessee newspaper. The commercial was mainly aimed at Maryville, Tennessee residents, just south of Knoxville.
The firm highlighted their mattress discounts along with the new payment options. Arguably, Beds To Go is the first mattress store in the world to accept HEX as a form of legal payment.
Their website has a separate tab that reads ‘Buy with HEX‘ and customers who pay with HEX get an additional 10% discount. However, there is no streamlined process to buy with HEX and customers need to follow few steps to complete the payment.
“HEX cryptocurrency is our most preferred form of crypto payment options. Our current checkout process does not provide a streamline way to pay with HEX at checkout, so here is a step by step guide for purchasing with HEX,” instructions read on the website.
“We will go over your selection and create a custom invoice with special discounted pricing for HEX customers. The amount of HEX to be paid will be determined by spot price and honored for a 12 hour period. Once HEX payment is received, we will ship out your product(s) immediately. Your order will arrive to you in 1-2 weeks,” the website instructions read.
“We are probably the first mattress store in the world to accept #HEX as payment and I just know we’re onto something. #hexican #5555 #staker @RichardHeartWin,” tweeted an account connected with the store.
