Shopping.io integrates FTM
We’re extremely pleased to announce that Fantom has integrated with the leading cryptocurrency e-commerce platform Shopping.io. Immediately, native Fantom token holders can use their FTM to purchase items online and globally from popular retailers including Amazon, eBay, Walmart, and The Home Depot.
Offering shipping to over 60 countries, Shopping.io is the only international cryptocurrency onramp that allows users to spend crypto on global e-commerce websites. Due to jurisdictional requirements, USA residents cannot currently pay in crypto. They can, however, take advantage of free shipping on Shopping.io when ordering within the domestic US.
Shopping.io is also emerging as a major innovator in the crypto-retail space. With its recent announcement that it is developing the first-ever metaverse shopping mall, Shopping.io has set its sights on revolutionizing the consumer experience.
Integration with Shopping.com marks an important step in Fantom’s push to drive mainstream cryptocurrency adoption. The deal follows Fantom’s Q4 2021 announcement of integration with the gift card and mobile top-up vendor CryptoRefills and signals increasing retail awareness of the many benefits Fantom offers.
Fantom’s 1-second transaction finality and low average transaction fees of ~$0.01 make the FTM token ideal for everyday transactions and seamless online purchasing.
“Fantom is among the most reputable, exciting platforms in the space, so we could not be more excited to deliver this integration. With their significant community support, we firmly believe this is a major leap toward crypto adoption and evolution.”
‒ Arbel Arif, Shopping.io Founder & CEO,
“At our core, Fantom strives to bolster the entirety of decentralized finance and the larger cryptocurrency economy. Tangible utility, like online retail, is a major step in that direction. We’re thrilled to integrate with Shopping.io to deliver simple, user-friendly purchase capabilities.”
‒ Michael Kong, Fantom CEO
