It’s Official! We Now Accept Bitcoin and Litecoin!

That’s right!  You heard it here first! Paying with Bitcoin has never been easier!

We’ve been working hard behind the scenes to setup a payment method that will allow you to use your favorite crypto currency, in exchange for goods.  We’ve had a few teething problems, and while there are more hurdles to overcome, we think we have it nailed.

The biggest issue we had it converting the BTC into funds we can use locally and overseas.  If we couldn’t do that in a consistent way, then it would be essentially useless.  That said, we found a method that doesn’t require the use of an unstable market.

Will it be worth it?

Honestly, we don’t know.  It does open up a lot of opportunity though.  It means we can open the market internationally, and to places we wouldn’t normally go.  Because BTC isn’t yet subject to tax, and only has very small fees, it makes it perfect as a cross border currency.

It means that we can sell to someone in the USA; UK, and almost any other country in the world, just as easily as someone in NZ.  The only real difference is the shipping costs.

How do I find out more?

I thoroughly recommend reading about BTC.  Here are a few good links:

How can I pay with BTC?

When you get to the Checkout, you’ll see the option in the bottom right where it asks for your “Payment Method”.  All you have to do is click the radio button.  It’ll show you a QR code, a BTC address, and an amount.  Just sent the correct amount of BTC to the address listed, or scan the QR code with your BTC app on your phone.  Done!
