Hello,

I want to buy some bundles from BundleStars and Otakumaker, but then realize they do not support bitcoin payment. Is there a website or any middleman that's gonna help me buy those bundles with bitcoin. I know Humble Bundle, Indiegala and such do support bitcoin, yet somehow they don't have the games I want.

Anyone can help me with that?

Thank you.

first send a request to those sites and ask them to add bitcoin payment option, that is how all the other sited added this so far.
if the third party sites don't have it, you can open a topic in Digital goods board (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=93.0) asking you want to buy [WTB] what you want. and remember to use an escrow.

steam accept bitcoin, you can check if they have what you want, and humblebundle also accept bitcoin, they have plenty of game in a bundle to buy them together at low price, i think gog will follow shortly and add bitcoin to their payment list

Are you sure about that? Humble bundle has dropped bitcoin payments months ago and they are no longer accepting it. You can pay there only with paypal, or CC.
Steam on the other hand is accepting bitcoin and buying there is probably the easiest and fastest way to get new games. Only downside is that their prices are usually high, especially compared to discount sites like humble.

There's this site called tremorgames, they're usually buy games in bundle.
You might lucky to find games what you want in there, they also accept bitcoin.
The only downside is the the order takes minutes to day to sent.

Yes, Humble store is not accepting Bitcoins anymore
It saddens me as they were having a very nice sales for just $1, which sometimes was just 10% of what the same games cost on Steam. I'm sure many people were using this option, because all my friends liked it and used it and I hope they will reconsider.

Wow, didn't even know that. Just looked and sure enough, "Bitcoin payments have been disabled for the Humble ARMA Bundle." It must be due to the volatility of Bitcoin or something. It's a safer payment method for sure, but they may be afraid of losing value.

indeed, it is possible but we need to find the store that selling games and want to accept bitcoin as the payment and i think there is a few sites that already apply this. torrent might be a good solution to download the games but you need to consider that not all torrent is save from thief and we should to be careful.

if OP wants to buy a game and want to pay with bitcoin, then my advice and maybe it is the best solution that i can think is OP need his friend which have money in his credit card and buy the games, then OP can give his bitcoin to his friend.

I think he's looking for a discount, though, as most are. If he's up for giving the same value in BTC as whatever it is he wants to buy, many people would surely help (and I'd possibly do it myself).

Humble bundle has dropped bitcoin payments 3 months ago and they are no longer accepting it. You can use PayPal and payza or credit cards.You can try other websites or exchange the BTC to $ then buy.

I hope they will reconsider their descion of removing the bitcoin option. This is certainly not a good move and it may give the dent to its consumer base.
Whats make me wonder is what are the factors which made them not to continue with bitcoins ?
