The site still works, but the most recently news about it I found is this one (and only one this year): https://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/4jobz2/pizzaforcoins_scam/

Looks the guy ordered two pizzas and never received it. Maybe it's like desactivated at this moment. Anyway, this service is very restricted to few countries. The idea is nice and could be better executated. Good opportunity to make profit on medium-long term. Middle-men can receive the money in BTCs, pay the pizzeria in dollars, keep some satoshis and watch it growing its price soon.

Extra profit!

I see the company come from CA. It's can't delivery worldwide, better to visit their place.
The lack information is there's no phone number.

And I see the site is confusing, SSL just in some page, at main page there's no SSL.

If you were to try it last year, it probably would have worked. They seem to have been very active in the past. Even replying to reddit posts and reviews.
I wouldn't risk it now though since all I saw for this year is a guy who ordered twice and didn't get the pizza or a refund.

Oh, and the last tweet from them was 2 months back, something about an extortionist and DDOS threats.

It seems their host froze their account until they implement cloudfare.

based on what I have seen, it is highly possible that this site is trying to use the famous pizza for bitcoin story from ages ago to attempt an scam.

and besides buying pizza with bitcoin is only good if you directly contact the pizza place and offer them bitcoin directly in return for pizza. and generally whenever you go through a third party it is not really using bitcoin. so even if it was a legit place I wouldn't suggest using it.

So far I've had a bad experience with pizzaforcoins.com. I've lost 0.0295565 BTC (Jul.12) on an order that they split into 2 and did not forward the requested schedule, causing a mis-delivery by Dominos.

I ordered 2 pizzas & some sides for company lunch the next day.
The first red flag I noticed was the order completion page not working in either IE11 or Opera at all: it's a 6-step process but the page had only headings for each step, no fields following them. When I stubbornly got it to work in Firefox, in steps 5 & 6 there were 2 text fields for special notes, so wrote in each "for Thursday @ 10:30". The transaction went through without a hitch but then Dominos tried delivering TWICE on Wednesday (same day) after business hours.

Turns out the order was split into two, requested delivery date not forwarded, and paid for with mysterious "gift cards" via the website, that's why Dominos tried to deliver twice at different times. They of course attempted to reschedule and voided the "gift cards" transactions to the owner of pizzaforcoins.com, but they can't re-charge a "gift card" that came in through a website, it can only be done by the ordering party.
Instead, I would have to personally use said "gift cards" to pay directly. But of course I've no knowledge of these "gift cards" so I can't use them to pay Dominos on delivery.

Nice scam! Dominos may or may not have authorised use of their ordering system by  pizzaforcoins.com, but either way they have no idea what this website is. Now pizzaforcoins.com has my Bitcoins and the bogus refunded "gift cards" to recycle on the next fool! I have requested a refund through their website messaging system but don't expect my Bitcoins back of course as that generally never happens with Bitcoin scams.

Problem 1: pizzaforcoins.com is far from professional. A payment processor is supposed to transparently inform the customer (me) of all steps in the ordering chain, if it's not the implied direct payment from a bank account. If "gift cards" are invlolved then I need to know all the details. I had to apologise a bunch of times to Dominos for such scheme.

Problem 2: pizzaforcoins.com witheld all indication that the order came through a payment processor, instead writing it like it came directly from me. That's a direct violation of financial ethics.

Problem 3: Called the business number, answered "Hello?". I asked what's the status of my refund, answer: "I'm not in front of the computer right now, I'll check into it and get back to you in the next 3 hours". It's the guy's personal phone, not a business :-(

Don't be naive like I was - there are more con artists in Bitland than legitimate businesses.

The site still works, but the most recently news about it I found is this one (and only one this year): https://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/4jobz2/pizzaforcoins_scam/

Looks the guy ordered two pizzas and never received it. Maybe it's like desactivated at this moment. Anyway, this service is very restricted to few countries. The idea is nice and could be better executated. Good opportunity to make profit on medium-long term. Middle-men can receive the money in BTCs, pay the pizzeria in dollars, keep some satoshis and watch it growing its price soon.

Extra profit!


Looks like a loop hole in the pizza. That's a really lengthy process to earn extra satoshi being a middle man. The calculation doesn't really fit in here for balancing the dollar pizza and btc amount to be spent. Currently btc being lowest will need more USD to process hid order from pizzeria and that would be reverse in case of btc being very high. Anyway concept looks lucid and can be polished with more other services rather than pizza only.

The customer will pay more or less Bitcoins proportinally to the Dollar price. Middleman will just pick his own Dollars and use it to order pizza, while the BTCs received from customer will stay on the wallet. When the BTC price hits a nice number the middleman exchange the BTCs for dollar.

If Bitcoin is cheap on that moment he will just keep the money in BTC until the price increases. Everything the person offering this service needs is some Dollar investment to hold the business while the BTC price is low. Seems very profitable for me...

Hmm, yummy service with lots of profits. I never thought of being middle men but I wouldn't do great for little satoshi's as the payment is very less. Just imagine to get the order from customer and convey it to vendor and then again revert back to customer with whole details. That is the kind of job which needs to get paid more than a satoshi. But it is good somewhere something is getting built up with bitcoin. Very good concept.

I received a follow-up email from Mr. R. Alexander who apologized for the delay due to
a high volume of orders for a small business. I received a refund in the full amount.
So it is not a scam after all, just keep in mind that placing scheduled orders is improbable.
This website is more intended for same-day deliveries.

So far I've had a bad experience with pizzaforcoins.com. I've lost 0.0295565 BTC (Jul.12) on an order that they split into 2 and did not forward the requested schedule, causing a mis-delivery by Dominos.

It appears it was an amateur attempt by the website but it did not succeed for lack of promotions or other factors and the owners quit the initiative, but kept the website live, perhaps in an attempt to gain some interest so that they can sell the domain and website.

I know this topic is old.
But I am looking to make an order at the moment, can someone confirm they still work?
Seems like the last post they had was via their twitter account at about a month ago.

1/21/18  

Was starving, made a transfer to my bank from Coinbase on Friday to eat, it's Sunday, still hasn't gone through!  Went to Pizzaforcoins.com, ordered a pizza, one hour later I'm eating.   It's legit as of 1/21/18.  

Thanks Pizzaforcoins.com!

Gave them a try on 6/17/18 and it worked. They wait for a confirmed block before they place the order. Also, for whatever reason they weren't able to place the Pizza Hut order, but were reasonably quick in responding with an email offering a refund or changing it to Dominoes, so I just went with Dominoes. Cool service, but plan for a delay of at least an hour between the time you place an order and when it arrives.
