to help developers use this service, i've now added a plain text version of each page.

for example http://payb.tc/donate gives the full html page and http://payb.tc/donate/text gives just the address in plain text.

simply add /text to your current short link url to have your address returned as plain text.

update: it also now supports qr and json output too. examples:

http://payb.tc/donate (html page)
http://payb.tc/donate/text (plain text)
http://payb.tc/donate/qr (qr encoded image)
http://payb.tc/donate/json (json encoded array with variables 'username' and 'address')

update 2:

each page now has a link to view the address on block explorer, plus links to the api options.

update 3:

added an xml option also:

http://payb.tc/donate/xml

Awesome change payb.tc
I hope other sites will follow along and make similar changes so that site-scraping does not need to be a dark-art.
At the end of the day, we all need to try and ensure that information is easily accessible - even when retrieved in an automated fashion.

cool i'm glad this is helpful.

and so i've now also added 'qr' Cheesy Cheesy

simply add /qr to your short link to get a qr image. example: http://payb.tc/donate/qr

i'm not very familiar with qr or how it looks on phones yet so please let me know if the size and margin is okay.

Good stuff... I was thinking it'd be handy if the various withdrawal forms around the web would also accept a url instead of just accepting a bitcoin address.

Eg. You go to withdraw from Mt Gox and instead of inputting your address you just input your shortener link.

Idea
Add support for json/jsonp
And the postfix in URL should end /json

The /qr works with the Bitpay Android app. It gave the correct address when I used the app's "From Camera" button.

Good job.

user would just be the person's short name, eg 'donate'.

sorry i'm not sure how that link you gave me helps.

okay now it outputs json

just add /json to the end of your short link and you'll get something like this:

{"username":"donate","address":"13QTW27b3SgqrEjefB9PbiZ6hcrVCJAxfx"}

( that's from http://payb.tc/donate/json )

any comments? is that the sort of output you would expect for a json api?

Neat!

I would prefer if it defaulted to the text version and you could point to the html version if you chose to.
