1  Economy / Digital goods / Spend Bitcoins is for sale!!! on: June 01, 2015, 05:35:58 AM

Spend Bitcoins was one of the first bitcoin websites in the world. It was launched in May 2011 as one of the first ways to spend bitcoins at major companies such as Amazon and NewEgg by exchanging bitcoins for gift cards.

Over the following four years, Spend Bitcoins has grown into the world's largest directory of bitcoin accepting merchants.

6  Economy / Currency exchange / Buy bitcoins with cash in Australia on: March 04, 2014, 01:11:33 AM

I've just realised I haven't posted in this section in quite awhile as we have been working on several upgrades to our site.

If you are looking to buy bitcoins in Australia, is the easiest, quickest, and most trusted method. Just head on over, place an order to get a six digit reference # and our bank details, pop into a bank (make sure you verbally ask the teller to include your six digit reference #), and you'll have bitcoins within a few short hours at latest.
7  Economy / Goods / Spend Bitcoins worldwide on: February 11, 2014, 01:17:32 AM
Hi everyone,

Wow, it's been a very long time since I have posted on the forums (more than six months!). A lot of changes have happened at Spend Bitcoins since then.

We now have what we believe is the the largest directory of bitcoin accepting sites in the world. If not at the moment, it should be in the next week or so (we have thousands of sites submitted and/or crawled over the last month just waiting for approval).

Most importantly, each and every bitcoin accepting site in our directory has the ability for users to post feedback. Since bitcoins are like internet cash, it's important to know the reputations of sellers, and we hope to contribute to this in a significant way.

As would be expected, our site is number one on google (at least for me) search results for the search "spend bitcoins". We hope that when people search for "spend bitcoins on electronics", etc, they will come to our site and be able to see both positive and negative reviews for bitcoin accepting electronics sites, for example.

If your site is not yet listed, please submit it for free now at Please do not be alarmed if it says your site is already listed but it's not. This just means we have already crawled your page and it will be listed as soon as we approve it (hopefully within the week).

If you have shopped at any of the businesses on our site, please post feedback, whether positive or negative to help other shoppers know the reputation of bitcoin accepting sellers across the world.

Thank you so much for your continued support. We at Spend Bitcoins are very excited about the rapid spread of bitcoin around the world, and we want people to be able to shop with as much safety and confidence as possible!

There's a lot more coming on our site that will make shopping with bitcoin much, much easier. Watch this space! Wink

Hi there,

I sent a customer of mine (a newbie) bitcoins several days ago and they haven't received them.

I had them send me a screenshot:

which obviously shows they are not connected to the bitcoin network. What could cause this and what can they do about it?

Thanks for the technical support, forums! Wink
15  Economy / Currency exchange / Get up to 5% more for your bitcoin NOW at -- Limited time on: July 30, 2012, 12:54:01 AM
Hi bitcoin spenders,

Lucky you! We want to balance our # of bitcoins vs fiat currency today, so until that is done, we are giving you 5%* more for your national currency than LAST PRICE on Mt Gox (give or take 5 minutes).

If you've been holding out on cashing out or spending your bitcoins, now is the time! Head over to while this sale lasts. It could end anytime!

Happy spending,
Jeremy West

*Please note that while every other conversion option is figured at the mid-market exchange rate from Mt Gox LAST USD, wire transfers are figured at Commonwealth Bank's retail AUD->other currency rates, so if you choose a wire transfer while you will probably get MORE than Mt Gox, it will certainly not be 5% more. Please see link on the wire page to estimate how much you will get in your national currency.

18  Economy / Service Announcements / Delays in order processing/answering tickets or emails on: July 26, 2012, 08:22:53 AM

Hi everyone,
I sincerely apologize for all delays anyone has experienced while I have been on a combined business trip/vacation in the USA for the last month. I thought that between me working part time and our CTO Jay picking up the slack we would be able to run as smoothly as normal, but we then had several issues with Amazon and PayPal which have taken up an inordinate amount of our time.

I finally arrived home in Australia today, 27 hours after getting on the first of 4 flights in Seattle, USA. While I was on the plane and Jay was handling things, PayPal "randomly" selected our account for yet another review. This has slowed Jay down quite a bit and as the account is in my name, only I am authorized to speak with PayPal to get it unblocked.

I am doing everything I can tonight (6:12 pm here now) to get all orders through and all emails/tickets answered, but I anticipate crashing at some point after all the flying. I promise to get everything that can possibly be resolved tomorrow resolved tomorrow and to communicate with everyone else as to when I expect their issues to be resolved. If you have not heard from us within 24 hours of this message, please contact us again because that means your message has been misplaced.

I apologize again for any inconvenience my travels have caused anyone. I pride myself on giving good, timely customer service, and I have failed on that many times over the last month. Everything should be back to the normal high standard once I get through everything in the system and things settle back to normal over the next few days.

Happy Spending,
