How do I pay for goods and services using Bitcoin?
Posted by Coinify on 10 December 2014 10:54 AM
When you shop online with a merchant who has bitcoin payments enabled through Coinify the following guidelines may be helpful:
Place your order and proceed to the payment
Select > payment with bitcoin. (or similar wording/Bitcoin logo)
Once you click to proceed with the payment , a payment window will appear with the bitcoin amount payable and a bitcoin address to pay to.
There will also be an option to pay with a bitcoin client and a QR code you can scan.
2 a: Pay with mobile Bitcoin wallet (Smartphone/tablet)
2 b: Pay with a bitcoin client installed on your computer
2 c: Manual payment
OR you wish to use an online wallet to pay with;
Step 3 : What to expect, do's and dont's
What to expect: once your payment has been transmitted to the bitcoin network, the payment window will update to paid and you will be redirected to the webshop.
What to do: Always send the exact bitcoin amount as shown on the payment window - your wallet may use different exchange rates than Coinify and can translate into a different fiat currency amount.
What not to do: Never make a payment from an exchange/trading account processed as a withdrawal - doing this may result in the payment expiring.
What to expect if a payment expires: If your payment has not been transmitted to the network within 15 minutes, the payment will expire. This means payment will not update to paid in the shops system and you may have to contact them for a refund or credit - and possibly have to make the payment again.
