How does AcceptBitcoin work?
With AcceptBitcoin you will need to supply a bitcoin address. This service is not meant to be a wallet or hold your funds.
You can think of this service more like a till or an easy way to accept bitcoin payments.
It is perfect for a shop or anyone that wants to accept bitcoin payments, your customers can quickly scan the QR code and pay the correct amount they see displayed on the screen. It is super easy to use.
Here are the steps needed to get started:
- Register an account with AcceptBitcoin
- Have a bitcoin address that you have access to any funds that are received, if you are not sure of where to get one we suggest AltCoinTrader.
- Insert your bitcoin address into the "My wallet" section of AcceptBitcoin and click "Receive payments"
It's as simple as that. You can then type the amount of ZAR (Rand) your customer owes you, and the bitcoin amount along with a QR code will be displayed on the screen.
If you are using your AltCoinTrader account it is a simple process to sell your bitcoin and cash out into ZAR and withdraw your rands, if you choose to do so, or you could just keep the bitcoin.
Important security information:
