Can I pay with Bitcoin?

Yes. Due to slow and often high transactions on the bitcoin blockchain, however, we recommend using the Bitcoin Lightning Network. Use equivalent custodian or non-custodian wallets available to you for using Lightning Network and as always run your own node if you can such the Nodl.it hardware. This is the optimal way of using Bitcoin with no fees.

 

Can I Pay in US Dollar?

Yes. We and now provide limited support for Debit Card via Apple Pay. There is a small 3rd party fee for availing of this service. It is recommended to buy Bitcoin from a P2P marketplace, or if you must, an exchange.
