My blog partner Bill Rounds
was the first attorney to accept BitCoins on the wiki Trade page. Recently we integrated BitCoin as a payment method on our blog How To Vanish
We already had someone make the first purchase. I was thinking about the customer experience and I sure hope they got the product because I neither know their name nor how to find it out or have any way to contact them. With other digital delivery software I am able to see when the product was downloaded, etc. and I try to follow up if there appears to be a problem like people buying it but not downloading it. We have also had a chargebacks in the last month, like usual, from people who downloaded the product 3+ times. Seriously? Sure, it is one thing to understand the theory of BitCoin but once one starts using it in commerce it is a whole difference experience.
BitCoin is the shit. Not only is there no potential chargeback liability but it is also going to drive these tax collectors crazy.
On another note, anyone know of any digital product delivery software that would integrate with BitCoin or about how much it would cost to develop some? It would sure be really useful. Right now we are using MyBitCoin but what happens if it takes the network 60 minutes to clear? Our other digital delivery software does just fine and deals with Paypal eChecks, etc.
