I tried to purchase bitbills through the MyBitcoin merchant service. Followed the instructions precisely, but got a message saying "Payment failed". BTC was sent, merchat didn't get the BTC or confirmation and MyBitcoin doesn't reply to support messages.

Has anyone else had similar problems with MyBitcoin? Did you get the dispute resolved? How? Anyone know who the the owner of MyBitcoin is here in the forums?

With the experience I have, I'd recommend others to avoid using the payment gateway.

Did you pay using the "Pay with Bitcoin" button or with the "Pay With a MyBitcoin Account" button?

If you used the "Pay with Bitcoin" option and sent bitcoins then  does the transaction show up in:
  - http://BlockExplorer.com ?

If not, is it a low priority transaction stuck waiting for a miner to include it?
  - http://bitcoincharts.com/bitcoin

Did you get the dispute resolved?

The MyBitcoin service does have a messaging system.  Have you tried that yet?

Yes the transaction got accepted and is part of the block chain:

http://blockexplorer.com/address/14e71m4yi48GhuM8TkzZ1nFPxNTWUy4jD2

I've sent two messages through the messaging system with no replies.

Thank you alot for trying to help. Will continue to try and reach whoever is running the service.

Bear in mind that Mybitcoin.com is a small business with few people to answer messages, and a large and growing userbase.  Sometimes these things take time.  Plus it's the weekend and the middle of the night in New Zealand.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

I've been trying to be patient, but It's now almost three days since I sent the last message. Oh well, hopefully the service has not gone rogue and I will get the BTC back.

Send another message.  Use the internal messaging system.
