I am offering 10% off for payments in bitcoin.
PayPal payments must add 3% to cover the fee unless you make sure to send it as “Friends and Family”.
If you are not at the barn when I take care of your horse’s hooves and don’t want to leave a blank check, bitcoin is a great way to send money online.
Credit cards were not designed for the Internet and I don’t want to set up a merchant account to take credit cards. It’s expensive and troublesome. We both lose money in the deal. Bitcoin transactions are easy, fast, inexpensive, and meet the highest standards for e-commerce security.
Get some bitcoin
The easiest way to get bitcoin is to create an account on coinbase.com, then connect that to your bank account. You can use the website or download the app for your phone. Buy some bitcoin, and send the amount of your bill to firstname.lastname@example.org on Coinbase. At first, it takes a while for the bitcoin to show up, even up to a week, but once you are established it works very well after that. You should go ahead and verify your ID, which will make future transactions much quicker. Don’t forget to subtract the 10% discount!
*Note: The price of bitcoin changes all the time.
No worries. You have an option – you can use Coinbase’s USD Instant Exchange to deposit the expected amount ahead of time and convert it at the time you send it. This will convert the amount into bitcoin instantly for you to send. You just keep enough money in your USD wallet on Coinbase to cover the amount of your bill. You need to have the money in your USD wallet on Coinbase deposited up to a week ahead of time for this to work.
The way this works so far with my clients doing this is that I just send them a text for the total and they send the bitcoin to my account. It’s that easy.
