Title: [ANN] ResponsePay - Mobile Wallet, Subsidiary of WalletBit.
Post by: Kris on July 03, 2012, 10:09:01 PM
ResponsePay is a lightweight mobile bitcoin payment solution that gives people a simple yet very effective method of sending bitcoin local and internationally.
We can reach almost all mobile phones, and did we mention it's instant no more waiting for the blockchain to update!

Built with Responsive & Adaptive Web Design so will look simply gorgeous on any device and will scale to fit. Try this by making your browser window smaller.

If you are on a Android Phone and using Opera Mobile 12, you have the possibility to scan Bitcoin URI QR codes via your camera directly from the web interface,
and it will automatically fill out the recipient you just need to click Send Bitcoins, couldn't be easier.

Email addresses:
If you send to an email address not in ResponsePay system, an email will be sent out so the person can claim the bitcoins.
If the email has an account at ResponsePay sending to this will be instant, no confirmations, no waiting for the blockchain.

Bitcoin addresses:
Sending to a bitcoin address is instant, if it is hosted on ResponsePay or WalletBit, otherwise it depends on the system you send to.
how many confirmation they choose before it confirms.

Mobile number:
You are able to SMS Bitcoins to almost any phone number in the world. The SMS will contain a claim link for redeeming the bitcoins on ResponsePay.
If you choose to register your phone number on ResponsePay sending to this number from within ResponsePay will be instant!

Single Sign-On:
If you are already using WalletBit, you may use our Single Sign-On to sign in with your WalletBit account.
You can enable access to the Mobile Interface from "Business Tools -> Email and Personal notifications" by ticking and enabling the "Enable Mobile ResponsePay" check box.

Real-time Updates:
When you have your Web Wallet open and receive a bitcoin payment, you will see this real-time in your balance.
Example, you are sitting in a cafe and need to share the bill, but do not have any dollars on you, but your friend has. You can send him bitcoins to his ResponsePay wallet,
and he will see it instantly, only thing missing is a ka-ching sound. It works exactly like a normal app, but cannot be blocked by Apple or Google app store's as it is web based.

We hope you will enjoy our new any device based bitcoin wallet, as we think this is the next big step for WalletBit and Bitcoin alike.

BitcPay - trying to ride on Bit Pay's tail of fame =)
you probably want to change the name in a good faith

btw Bitsy Pay is much nicer looking and sounding name, it definitely has a ring to it, should have went with this spelling in a first place IMO

212 countries?

Since the U.N. only knows of 193 ... even if you count a couple that are likely to become their own some day and even Wirtland for good measure, you are still short.   :)

Cool new service.
Like the name, cute. Similar to bit-pay? No, just pronounce it.
I can remember a few weeks ago, everyone was saying that such a service will be needed for the developing countries.
I guess at the moment you don't have SMS local numbers in different countries. Do you indent to add those once your service will be heavily used?

What is delivered in the text message is a link to claim the bitcoins sent (as far as I could tell from reading it).   That still requires data service. 

What is needed for developing countries (and for frugal people in developed countries) is a method to transact solely with SMS / text messaging -- like what Coinapult does for their SMS Wallet, but globally (Coinapult only service mobiles in U.S. and Canada due to SMS / text messaging fees.

An interactive voice response (IVR) system that complements an SMS / text messaging based wallet (i.e., subscriber can use either) would be useful for developing countries as well, I presume.

Think name similarity to bit-pay makes more harm than good. Instead of getting piece of bit-pay fame for free, it really feels like fake copy of the real thing.

Imagine if there was new payment processor in ebay. You won your auction and clicked a link to to pay through "PaycPal.com". It would feel like scam to me.

Thanks, no it is only for sending SMS with a claim link, a SMS service to handle incoming text messages would be way to expensive for every country.

A *free* SMS service might be too expensive to offer,

But, ... you can charge fees.  So what if it takes 5 texts back and forth to send money, at $0.04 each (which is way high, I believe, but works for my argument), that's $0.20 max per transaction and still cheaper than M-PESA, etc.

There will be someone who builds this.    The opportunity is open to all -- including ResponsePay.

I agree.  SMS as a push transaction is ideally suited for bitcoin, which is also a push transaction.  And 3G/Wifi is not always available, even if you do have a smart phone.  

I think there is a very good future for SMS wallets, and people would pay for the convenience.  When roaming it will be much cheaper to use an SMS than the carrier roaming data plan.

And Kris, thank you :)

If someone can send an SMS, then that means they have at least GPRS (the 2G data service that is part of GSM). GPRS can handle webpages that are not content rich.

Still, you are right. Bitcoin via SMS is an essential service.

Coinapult already has bitcoin via SMS. http://coinapult.com/sms-wallet (http://coinapult.com/sms-wallet)  Try going to coinapult.com, then send a coin to your phone number (US only), then you have an account on your phone. Then, you can use the text commands to send BTC to another phone, etc. Give it a try, it's fun :)

I just added offers go back to the first page for pictures.

This is one of the things, that I think will make ResponsePay unique.

When you click offers in your dashboard, you will be shown a list of offers nearby in your area. This works by allowing the phone to share it's location. Merchants are then able to push out offers for a predefined area including the latitude and longitude of their current shop location. And if you happen to be in this area and using ResponsePay, your phone will receive this push notification in the offers section. The offers could be anything from a coupon to savings on food even local bitcoin trading.

Cool. It would be extremely cool if one could not only receive bitcoins by sms, but also send bitcoins by sms.

Also, I would suggest that you remove the fee for now. I think it's a better strategy to grow your userbase now, and then you can introduce the fee when you actually have significant volume.

I just finished ResponsePay incoming SMS service.

The fee is "only"  0.0005 BTC sending to email, bitcoin address or mobile number if registered in ResponsePay, though if you add bitcoin from a remote bitcoin client, WalletBit fees and confirmation time may apply.

  • Can you actually scan QR codes from an iPhone?
  • Can you export the private key so you can use other clients with the addresses?
  • Who did the remix of the Harry Potter theme, I want me some!

No scanning QR codes from iPhone do not work yet. You cannot export private keys but you can import them soon, in fact might be a pretty good idea to be able to export them, I will look into this.

I think this would be best... then people wouldn't feel trapped in.  Also i would export it to my desktop wallet so I could spend without having to drag out my phone, but also have the mobile ability as well (this is how I use blockchain.info's MyWallet too.

While we wait on "native" integration on the iPhone for scanning QR codes from a website, I had a bright idea. You are now able to scan QR codes directly from ResponsePay on every device out there. See if it works for you by going to Payment address -> Send Bitcoins -> Scan QR code. And clicking on Scan QR code.

There might be issues with StartSSL on some mobile devices. But it should be safe to continue, as long as it says  responsepay.com (https://responsepay.com/) in the address field.

Negatory.   Shows *.walletbit.com for the certificate issued to when accessing https://responsepay.com from my Android.

Could the account allow me to set locale so that I can specify how transaction history should show the dates?  Right now it shows UTC, I'm presuming.  I might want them to correspond with my timezone rather than UTC.

I'm going to investigate what the problem might be. It's probably related to running two certificates on a single IP address.

Yes I will enable you to select your timezone in your account.
