TRON (TRX) holders can now spend their cryptocurrency on items from major e-commerce companies like Amazon. This follows a recent collaboration between the TRON network and Shopping.io, a crypto-friendly e-commerce onboarding and fulfilment service. 

TRON Users Can Now Shop With TRX

Shopping.io is more like a shop aggregator that allows customers to shop everyday items from different e-commerce companies. Per the announcement, the company said TRX holders can now spend their cryptocurrency on items from Amazon, eBay, Walmart and Etsy.

They will also receive up to a 2 percent discount at checkout when they spend TRX on purchases for two weeks. The development adds value to the TRON ecosystem as investors can use their coins to pay for real-world items. 

We are thrilled to be partnering with Shopping.io to allow our community to use $TRX on major e-commerce websites like Amazon, eBay and Etsy. Shopping.io provides users with real-world applications for their portfolio.
