Looks like mybitcoin has merchant tools!!! This will seriously push Bitcoin forward! Cheesy

It has a nifty html payment button generator with a URI encryption option -- very nice!

The payment pages can receive payments from mybitcoin accounts AND regular Bitcoin clients.

I generated an encrypted payment url, sample below:

Someone send me a bitpenny for fun! Tongue

P.S. You can generate links for Tor and I2P too! Wild!

Thanks for all of the bitpennies, guys! Tongue

I'm getting the form data that I encoded into that URL above too! I see the posts coming into my webserver. Cheesy

Now I see only one potential problem. It uses a temporary payment address,
but not a payee address, so if payer will send any other amount, the service
will get it, but not payee. Payer has not any right to incorrect amount entry.

It uses a temporary payment address so it can store and forward form variables back to a merchant's shopping cart. It is a good thing.

Look at the SCI Receipt interface and how it works. It took me a while to wrap my head around it, but I have it mostly working for my site. (It isn't live on my site quite yet, but it will be soon.)

If you are familiar with how e-gold's SCI worked, their system will make sense to you. I vaguely remember integrating e-gold into a customer's site (it was years ago), so I figured this thing out after a while.

I'm not sure what happens if the user sends the wrong amount of Bitcoins. Maybe someone should email Tom and ask him about it??

I was not quite correct. If payer will send too much, payee will get
a required amount, and MyBitcoin will get the remaining amount. Undecided

I just got an email from Tom @ mybitcoin. He said that they are working on a solution for this. He told me that overpaying on a temporary address results in the remaining coins going into a "lost and found bin" right now.

He also pointed out that Bitcoin addresses are accumulators. He said that you can actually make a whole bunch of payments onto a temporary address over a 24 hour period until the total amount is equal to the target amount.

Anyway, I'm urging mybitcoin to signup on the forum here. I'm tired of relaying information. Tongue
