I run a decent size website that sells digital products for $10-30.  We have a merchant account with Visa and Mastercard, and we also have a Paypal payment "button".

I'd like to start accepting BTC as payment, but I have 2 big questions:

1.  How the heck do I know who paid me?  At minimum I need an email address to send an acknowledgment and a username/password so they can download what they just bought.  This is fully automated for Visa, Mastercard, and Paypal, and I expect BTC to be a manual process for a while, but I need a way to either integrate BTC into the shopping cart or have some address of the sender.

2.  Have there been any dirty tricks by visa and mastercard (or Bank of America, my credit card processor) to hassle their merchants who accept BTC?  I cannot afford to lose my merchant account, or have it suspended for any reason.

Thanks
Tony

1. You need to hand out a different Bitcoin address to every customer, maybe even for each transaction. Keep a log of which address is associated with which details.
2. Not that I know of. PayPal has hassled people who use it to exchange BTC for other currencies.

a unique address for each transaction makes sense.

So I'd like to somehow integrate BTC as a payment option in my shopping cart.  Where I already capture the contact information, and a "checkout with BTC" button can generate a unique address for the transaction at checkout.

Has anyone successfully done this?

Our shopping cart is written in ASP.NET
Database Microsoft SQL2000
OS is Windows Server 2003 SP2

Look at bitcoincodes.com. For every purchase there is a unique address.

If I may ask: What is it you want to sell?

I did it in PHP and since I don't take other currencies, I don't need a shopping cart system.

It is a software download.  Ideally once people pay they need instant access to download.

Are you using some kind of shopping system or did you codes the website yourself?

I can assist you with PHP and basics of bitcoin network connectivity if you want.

PM me.
