Purchase Virtually Anything From Major Retailers With Kin

We’re very excited to announce that the popular e-commerce platform Shopping.io has integrated Kin! 

Shopping.io is an online ecosystem created to provide shoppers and merchants with a seamless and immersive crypto e-commerce experience. As a functioning bridge between cryptocurrency and retail, shoppers can browse and purchase just about anything from major stores such as Amazon, Walmart, Ebay, and Home Depot, and pay with cryptocurrency, including Kin. 

Starting today, Kin is the very first cryptocurrency on the Solana blockchain supported by Shopping.io! To celebrate this integration, Shopping.io is offering a 2% discount to purchasers using Kin for the next two weeks starting from today.

Take advantage of this great opportunity and start shopping with Kin today!

How It Works

Filling your shopping bags with Shopping.io is as simple as can be. Sign-up for your account, browse through Shopping.io’s catalog of products from major retailers, add the desired items to your cart, check-out and pay with Kin!

Shop Anywhere, Ship Everywhere – Shopping.io allows users to purchase virtually anything their heart desires with Kin, no matter where it’s located in the world. Users can shop across a variety of international storefronts (e.g. Amazon US, Amazon Japan, etc.), and shipping is fulfilled by Shopping.io, allowing shoppers to receive shipments to locations that would otherwise be out of reach – providing a valuable reason to spend crypto. 

Coming Soon

Shopping.io Extension – Shopping.io will be launching a browser extension that aims to streamline the shopping experience for all e-commerce consumers. Users will have the ability to shop directly from any online store that is approved by Shopping.io’s innovative extension and then check out with Kin.

Shopping Pay – On the business/merchant side of the platform, Shopping.io will soon be launching Shopping Pay – a in-house payment processor that will allow businesses to accept Kin, along with other crypto tokens that have integrated with Shopping.io as a form of payment. Businesses will also have the flexibility to have Shopping Pay configured to multiple e-commerce sites.
