How it works
How do I pay for items on bidorbuy using bitcoin?
Sellers have the ability to turn this facility on and off, so not all items will include bitcoins as a payment option. All sellers can opt to accept bitcoins.
Step 1: First thing you need to do is to check that the item you wish to buy accepts bitcoin. You can do this by one of the following methods:
Method 1: When browsing or searching for items, use the bitcoin payment option filter, situated in the column on the left.
Method 2: Stumbled upon an item you’d like to buy? Open the listing and click on the "Shipping & Payment" tab. If you see a bitcoin icon, it means that you can buy that item with your bitcoins. (Note: Deal of the Week items have this information under "Payment").
Step 2: Proceed through checkout as you would for any other item. When you get to the end of checkout, select the “Pay with bitcoin” option.
Step 3: Simply enter the amount that you would like to pay with your bitcoins. You can choose to pay the full amount with your bitcoins or to make a partial payment with your bitcoin and top-up with another payment method. Please note that when making a partial payment you need to enter the amount at this step.(You may need to visit the BitX website to check your bitcoin balance).
Step 4: When you are ready, click on “Pay with bitcoin”. You will now have the option to make payment through a QR code using your smartphone, or you can copy the wallet address and log into Bitx to complete payment. Please note you have up to 10 minutes to complete the payment.
Pay using the QR code and your smartphone.
