Coinbase Releases Bitcoin Extension for Spree Commerce Stores
Coinbase has just announced that all of the 45,000-plus retailers that have elected to use the Spree Commerce platform can now easily take advantage of the benefits of Bitcoin payments.

Using Coinbase, merchants can accept Bitcoin while still specifying prices in their local currencies.
