Bitcoin Payments


A change to the Payment Process

BitPay, our Bitcoin payment processing service, has changed their process to make payments more secure.

The BitPay invoice now displays a Payment Protocol URL or a Payment Protocol QR code instead of a bitcoin address.  In order to make a payment, you will need to use a wallet that is compatible with Payment Protocol.  The Bitcoin Payment Protocol standard was developed in 2013 to make bitcoin payments faster, safer, and less prone to error. By using a a wallet compatible with the payment protocol, you can avoid mistakenly sending funds to an attacker, prevent under-payments and over-payments, and speed-up your transactions.

How to Use Payment Protocol

To make a payment you will need a wallet which supports the standard. You can see which wallets work with BitPay here.  There are also instructions on how to move to a Payment Protocol-compatible wallet.

If you are unable to use a wallet that supports the protocol, you can also send a payment directly to our wallet.  After sending the payment, please send us the transaction ID and we will manually check.

Our wallet address is 14M3B4AfPiCnjJ3nbc1Ez43cWEerLp3nsv
