What options are out there for accepting bitcoin payments automatically? What I mean is, without me having to hand over a new address to each individual manually?
I'd like to be able to just point them to a URL that gives them a bitcoin address to make a payment to, and then, as part of filling out a form, enter in the address that they sent payment to.
I don't want to use mybitcoin either. They've been scamming people left and right, and I want no part of that. Any other options?
Run bitcoind on your server and use JSON-RPC calls from a program to generate a unique address for each transaction. Store addresses in a database and check for payment using calls to bitcoind to see how many confirmations are on that address. After the set amount of confirmations release the item you are selling.
