Will you ever extend your platform for digital services like YT views, SEO Link packages, social signals, etc etc?

Hey, I am a buyer for a product being sold on Rocketr. I did not know there was a thread here to ask. I was wondering what exchange rate you have been using for selling products priced in USD but sold in Bitcoin. I had been trying to buy a product costing $4, but at current bitcoin exchange prices the amount of bitcoin that Rocketr was requesting from me was worth about a dollar and a half more than the price of the product itself. Is the exchange rate outdated or are there fees that we are not able to see as buyers? During checkout, there is never any mention of any fees, which is why I ask about this.

We currently use blockchain.info's API for fiat -> BTC price conversion

I see that, but my question remains unanswered. As I keep trying to buy a product which I ended up having to buy directly from a seller in the end, I kept getting charged much more than the bitcoin equivalent of the dollar value shown on the website. A $5 item was going to cost me around $7 in bitcoin at blockchain.info's exchange rate. There was also no mention of any fees at the time of checkout. I can PM you with the complete details if you would like to check it out and see what's happening.

Yes, please PM me the order details including the order number.

We actually already do. We also allow for custom fields which allow the seller to ask buyers for additional details on checkout.

Some time between when I originally posted that and now the problem got fixed. For the record, the product which I attempted to buy was https://rocketr.net/buy/0ef2a453ae12. I ended up buying it by dealing directly with the owner of the listing because of that bug, but it seems to be fine now, amounting to around $5.15 in Bitcoin which in my opinion is within margin of error. It might have been caused by the fluctuating value of bitcoin, but even so I tried multiple times and the price kept being equivalent to between $6-$7 every time I tried. If it happens again, I will let you know.

That's a great service you providing op, sometime in the past I was looking for such services or platform but couldn't find one I'm glad that I found one and now I can sell digital goods on your website. If possible then please try to launch a mobile app or mobile version of your website so that people can access it anytime from anywhere.

Okay great. Sorry about the inconvenience and yes please do drop me a message if you notice it again.

We've definitely got mobile apps on the roadmap -- we're in the middle of a little bit of an overhaul that'll make it easier for us to build these, so after that you can definitely expect some apps.

Ok so I found the site and went to check what's being sold there. Oops, there's NOTHING. Well, at least until I register. Lots of nice little texts about how great your site is and not a single listing. Do you know how long I spent there? Less than a minute. Buyers do not want to read about your great service, they want to see what's available or they turn around and leave. Until you improve that it won't fly.

While it is possible, I would not use them for selling services. The platform itself is focused on selling products or goods that are able to be delivered electronically in an automated way. This makes it so that items such as product keys or guides are the ideal items to be sold through this platform. For selling services, a freelancing website would probably be much better, albeit I have not heard of any reputable one whose main focus is Bitcoin clientele. What you could do is find any reputable freelancing website and market yourself there in such way as to make it obvious that you accept Bitcoin payments on top of, optionally, fiat. The disadvantage to this is that it is not automated, but when it comes to services, automation is usually not what you are looking for anyway.

Thanks for your response. Great Insights.

Though I am already using some freelance websites, most of them don't allow you to take payments from external options and you have to go through the option they provide on their website.

For now, I was only able to find OpenBazaar and Rocketr that allow you to take payments in cryptocurrencies in exchange for your services.

I am really surprised to see that with tons of ICOs no one came with something like Fiverr, a gig based website to connect sellers and buyers, especially for freelancers.

Or maybe most of the ICOs are just concerned about raising money rather than making an actual product.
