7  Bitcoin / Group buys / Any idea how to print a shipping label from outside the US? on: September 30, 2013, 07:27:48 PM
I'd like to have a US based reseller ship some USB Block erupters to a friend's US address.

Neither USPS, nor will accept a non-US credit card.  Any alternatives for printing a USPS shipping label. 

This conundrum seems quite ironic to me.

Just go to:

I have unique codes that will allow you to purchase giftcards from eGifter at a discount, (only when you use bitcoin)!

I'm able to do this, because eGifter is eager to acquire more bitcoin customers, and get their feedback on how to improve their service for bitcoiners.

9  Economy / Services / Home Page Redesign for Coin Forest on: September 12, 2013, 05:01:20 PM
Hi there,

I posted a few days ago, but realized I needed to provide more information about the job.

The description is very lengthy, but it's not a massive project. I'm simply trying to give as full a picture of my needs as possible.

Hoping to find someone that has a decent eye, and potential for long term collabo.
Site is built in PHP, HTML, CSS on Bootstrap 2.3.
10  Economy / Services / Seeking HTML/CSS/JS capable Web designer on: September 11, 2013, 03:48:30 AM needs a more general purpose homepage.

Currently it redirects to the currrent deal, which does nothing for the casual visitor, and is very poor at capturing mailing list sign ups.

I'd prefer to use a layout more like, to feature whatever deal we have on the go at the time, help people to understand the site and incorporate our voting via micropayments feature.

Working with a bitcoiner on this has obvious benefits for me, and there is the chance, if all goes incredibly well, for an ongoing partnership.

Let's talk.

12  Bitcoin / Project Development / 50% off on .CO domain registration from btc-only group buying on: August 06, 2013, 08:10:10 PM
Coin Forest is the first short term group buying site for bitcoiners. If you must have an analogue, the most obvious is groupon for bitcoin.
However, we care about our community and our vendors. Our products are not local like groupon, but focus on that which can either be delivered electronically or shipped.

Our mission is to help grow the bitcoin economy.

Our second deal just launched at We're offering .CO domain registration via at 0.17 BTC, which is equivalent to 50.3% off by current bitpay rates of $96.55/BTC.

"I'm not one to tell you how to run your site, of course. It just seems a bit odd to me to peg it to hard currency, when what you are trying to do is promote bitcoins AS hard currency... but hey! It's your deal Smiley" - COO at Gandi US

Gandi is an awesome company, and we're excited to have us and our members be bitcoin ambassadors.  

Our opening deal has been discussed extensively, with positive feedback here:

We also followed through on our commitment to donate to the EFF from our first sale, and we'll continue to do so.  

Your feedback is very welcome here. I'm also interested in hearing from vendors with a product geared towards bitcoiners (including ASIC USB resellers). Interested vendors are best to email me at

13  Bitcoin / Project Development / I created a badge for businesses that deal exclusively in bitcoin on: July 29, 2013, 11:03:55 PM

Text of the article (also posted here:


Thereís a new crop of Bitcoin Only businesses sprouting up that are innovating in the currency they accept, and using it to connect to a very focused new customer niche.

This wave of businesses was led by the mining manufacturers and other businesses selling bitcoin specific equipment. This includes btcguild, and of course the group buy organizers on

Now, Bitcoin Only is starting to spread into areas of commerce that arenít directly related to bitcoin. This includes,, and many others.

These companies are taking a stand, and taking a risk, betting their future on a currency that has a small (but constantly growing) merchant ecosystem.  We made this badge for them to place on their sites.

If you only accept bitcoin, feel free to grab this PNG.  If you have an idea for improvement, let me know, and Iíll be happy to send you the SVG file.

If you use this badge on your site, leave a comment here, and Iíll place a link to you in the post. If thereís enough interest, Iíll consider creating a dedicated site for listing these companies.

14  Bitcoin / Project Development / Bitcoin Flash Sales website on: July 12, 2013, 10:15:11 PM
I want to create a bitcoin only e-commerce store.

We will host flash sales, similar to 

I need the following features which are quite similar to groupon or kickstarter.

1. A countdown time, the sale must automatically end and cease accepting payments afterwards. 

2. A counter of units purchased to date. 

3. The sale will only happen after x-number of purchases, so there must be an indicator changing to ďThis Deal is a GoĒ

4. I have a BitPay merchant account, and want to accept payment via their services.

Neither of these items are difficult on their own, there are myriad pre-existing solutions for time 1,2 and 3.

However, integrating so that payment via BitPay is quickly reflected in the number of items purchased is difficult.

I would also like to use a pre-existing e-commerce solution, such as ecwid, or woothemes. The less custom work the better.

Design is very important to me.

Can anyone recommend a suite of tools that can solve these problems? Are there any developers who would like to work with me on this?
