Sheetz becomes first convenience store chain to accept Bitcoin

Mid-Atlantic convenience store chain Sheetz on Thursday announced it will be enabling digital currency payments via Flexa, the pure-digital payments network, to provide customers with the ability to pay for items inside the store or fill up their cars, trucks, and RVs at the pump using digital currencies like bitcoin, ether, litecoin, dogecoin and more.

Sheetz is partnering with Flexa and NCR to bring digital currencies directly to the fuel pump for an instant, fraud-proof form of payment. Sheetz is the first convenience store chain to accept Bitcoin and other digital currencies in-store and at the pump.

Sheetz will begin accepting digital currencies at select Sheetz Cafe Stores later this summer with a planned roll out later in the year for acceptance at Sheetz’s fuel pumps as well. The company currently operates 622 stores in Maryland, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia and  Ohio.

Sheetz customers will also have the option to link their My Sheetz Rewardz loyalty account when paying with Flexa-enabled apps.
