TigerDirect Canada seems to be working on bitcoin integration, but for the time being details are sketchy.

Shoppers south of the border can already use bitcoins on the company's US site.

The tech retailer started accepting the currency back in January, just two months later TigerDirect announced that the total volume of its bitcoin sales had surpassed $1m.

Canada could soon join the fun

TigerDirect's bitcoin rollout appears to have been a success in the US and now it appears that it is about to expand to Canada.

There is still no official announcement, but newsBTC came across a curious entry on www.tigerdirect.ca/bitcoin:

A word of caution – TigerDirect.ca is not explicitly stating that it plans to accept bitcoin, although the "stay tuned" does imply the company is at least considering it.

Keep in mind that TigerDirect's original announcement came out of nowhere, so it wouldn't be surprising to see an announcement from TigerDirect Canada soon.

More information to follow, so in the words of TigerDirect – please stay tuned.
