Dutch Food Delivery Website Takes Bitcoins

The main website that arranges home delivery for restaurants in the Netherlands is now accepting payment in bitcoins, an increasingly popular form of digital currency.

Around 5,000 Dutch restaurants use the site to handle around 600,000 online orders and deliveries per month.

The company's marketing manager, Imad Qutob, on Tuesday said Thuisbezorgd wanted to offer customers more choice in how they pay.

The company says around half its customers pay cash on delivery. Others pay via the site using debit cards, credit cards, PayPal or an online system run by Dutch banks.

Paying with bitcoins could save customers a little change: Thuisbezorgd adds surcharges of up to one euro ($A1.43) for other forms of online payment.

Bitcoin is a cryptography-based digital currency that advocates say is counterfeit-proof.
