Expedia’s Bitcoin Payment Option Unavailable For Unknown Reasons
Over the course of 2014, several major retailers and companies have started accepting Bitcoin as an alternative payment method to more traditional options such as credit cards. One of these companies is Expedia, an online travel agency if you will, which lets users book flights, hotels and even combinations of both online. Unfortunately for Bitcoin enthusiasts, their Bitcoin payment gateway is not working, and it has been like this for at least 24 hours according to several reports.
We stumbled across this issue when browsing theBitcoinTalk forums this morning, as one user was mentioning how he experienced an error after selecting the Bitcoin payment option on Expedia’s website. However, as no one else seemed affected at this point in time, I decided to give it a try myself and see whether or not I’d get the same error message.
