We’ve had a lively discussion in “The Garden” Topic about using bitcoin on the ILGM Seed Shop.
Here is the link to the direction Thanks @Covertgrower
Let us know how you made out. if you got hung up some place along the way lets see if we can help you figure it out!
Note… I had to recreate the exact directions using a lot of copy and paste. Anything that looks like it might be in the wrong place or whatever check it on the link and let me know!
And also the directions from that link!
PAY US IN BITCOIN IN 4 SIMPLE STEPS
Paying with Bitcoin for the first time may seem complicated, but it is not. Especially, when we’ll guide you every step of the way.
Plus, we provide a 10% discount on your entire order when you pay with Bitcoin so it’s definately worth a few steps.
In short you will:
Create a wallet to store your bitcoins in.
Buy bitcoins with USD (or another currency)
Transfer the bitcoins to your new wallet.
Pay your seed order with the bitcoins from your wallet.
Seems easy enough doesn’t it?
Let’s get going!
Step 1: Create a wallet to store your bitcoins in
A bitcoin wallet is a digital place to keep your bitcoins. Just like a normal wallet filled with dollars. Use your bitcoin wallet to pay with bitcoins.
We suggest creating a free wallet with the world’s most popular bitcoin wallet platform: Blockchain. There’s no ID verification and no restrictions on how you spend your bitcoins.
Step 2: Buy bitcoins with your local currency
Buy some bitcoins and pay in dollars.
Coinbase is the world’s largest Bitcoin exchange platform. Their ease of use and acceptance of credit cards for buying bitcoins make them the most popular choice for most.
Coinbase requires an ID verification and is very strict in how you spend your bitcoins. That’s why you only use Coinbase to BUY your bitcoins. Do not use Coinbase to SPEND your bitcoins.
Important things to keep in mind:
DO NOT pay us with your Coinbase account!
Setting up an account requires ID verification. Don’t worry, this is standard procedure for all exchange platforms. You will not use Coinbase to make the seed purchase, only to buy the bitcoins
You can instantly exchange up to $150 to Bitcoin when you pay with a credit or debit card. Other payment methods are available but they take a couple of days to process.
Be sure to buy a few extra dollars worth of Bitcoin to make up for exchange fees.
Never use the Coinbase wallet for purchases. First transfer your bitcoins to your blockchain wallet. (see the next step…)
Go ahead and set up your account and buy the bitcoins. We’ll stick around…
Step 3: Transfer bitcoins to your wallet
Coinbase offers a Bitcoin wallet but they’ll close your account if you buy our seeds with it. Never use the wallet of an exchange platform to buy anything. Use a separate wallet, like Blockchain, instead.
To transfer your bitcoins to your Blockchain wallet go back to your new Blockchain wallet and hit “Request”. Then copy the Bitcoin address and head to Coinbase.
In Coinbase hit “Send” and paste the address in the recipient field. Enter the amount to transfer and verify the transaction.
You will now see your bitcoins pop up in your Blockchain wallet!
Note: Although the transaction says “pending verification” you can already head to the next step and round up your order.
Step 4: Pay your order with us
Pick your favourite strains from ILGM and go to the checkout. Select Bitcoin as the payment method.
At the payment page you will see a window displaying the Bitcoin amount and a Bitcoin address. This is where we’ll receive your bitcoins.
paying with bitcoin
Open your Blockchain wallet in a new browser tab and hit “Send”.
Copy the bitcoin address and bitcoin amount from your order and paste them at the Blockchain window. Confirm the transaction at Blockchain.
Your order will be shipped within one day of receiving your payment.
There you go!
You will receive some fine seeds with a nice discount shortly!
