Order with Bitcoin

This guide is divided in 3 parts:


PART 1 - SETUP COINBASE

PART 2 - ORDER AND PAY WITH ONE DEVICE (f.i. your phone)

PART 3 - ORDER AND PAY WITH TWO DEVICES (f.i. phone + laptop)

 

PART 1 – SETUP COINBASE

1.1 INSTALL COINBASE APP

Download the Coinbase app for iOS or Android on your phone. If you don’t have a smartphone visit Coinbase.com to setup an account.

1.2 CREATE ACCOUNT

Follow the instructions in the Coinbase app. You need to fill out the usual data, plus answer 4 funny multiple choice questions about income. We claimed to be “actors”, this was accepted, so don’t take this to serious. In the meantime, get your ID because you need to take a picture of it with your phone soon.

1.3 ID VERIFICATION

Take a picture of your ID picture when the app asks for it. Turn off flash to avoid glare.

Now go watch Netflix for about 10min. This is how long it takes them to process your ID.

1.4 RESTART THE APP ON YOUR PHONE

After 10min, check if you have received an email confirmation. Do you see the email? 

Restart the app and do not wait till the 3 “in progress” dots disappear. They won’t, and you’ll wait forever. Apparently, this is normal. Congratulations, you are now accepted!

(Not accepted? Check if the ID picture was refused, and upload a new picture. Get enough light, but no glare. If they keep refusing you for some reason, try Coinmama.)

1.5 ADD CREDIT CARD

CB_E_5.jpgAdd your credit card to payment options. (bottom right, Settings, + add payment option).
The app lets you scan your credit card with your camera, so you don’t have to type the number yourself. All you have to type yourself is the ccv code on the back. Can’t add the card? Check the “valid to” data. Our camera switched an 8 for a 2 there, maybe because those numbers are smaller.)

1.6 BUY BITCOIN

Get some BTC! Keep in mind, you will lose 4% in the conversion, so €100 buys you €96 worth of BTC. To compensate your loss, we’ll give you a 5% discount at check out.



 

PART 2 - ORDER AND PAY WITH ONE DEVICE

2.1 CREATE ORDER ON PHONE

Make an order on your phone. In the end you will see a big QR code on the order confirmation page. DO NOT CLOSE THE ORDER CONFIRMATION PAGE!

2.2 OPEN COINBASE APP

Open the Coinbase app on your phone and click on “Accounts”.

2.3 CLICK ON BTC WALLET

Click on your BTC wallet. This should display the amount of BTC you bought earlier.

2.4 START PAYMENT

Click on the small arrow symbol in the top right corner of your screen. It’s easy to miss, and the only thing we don’t like about this app.

2.5 INSERT AMOUNT

Type the amount you need to pay in Euro, followed by 'next' on the bottom of the screen

2.6 COPY BTC ADDRESS FROM ORDER CONFIRMATION

Go back to the order confirmation in your browser app. Press the "copy" button on the top right side of the QR code. 

The QR code is now replaced by a screen with a big string of numbers in the middle, and a smaller address line under it. If you touch the small orange Bitcoin icon on the left of the address code, it will automatically copy the long address line to your phone’s memory.

2.7 PASTE BTC ADDRESS INTO COINBASE APP

Now go back to the Coinbase app and paste the long string of digits into the field where the cursor is waiting. Press “Next”.

2.8 CONFIRM PAYMENT

Finally press “Confirm Send” to complete the order.
