Looks good.
imo you should add the ability to add a received-to-address with an api call.
The mechanisms you suggest:
Quote
1.   Create a list of your Bitcoin receiving addresses (i.e. 50 - the more, the better). It is as easy as copy-pasting them from your Bitcoin application to the text file.
2.   Request notifications about payments to your addresses. We will notify you every time someone sends you Bitcoins. Check documentation for HTTP notifications.
3.   In your online store software, for each new order assign one of your Bitcoin addresses and display it to your customer. Mark this address as reserved. Once the order is completed, release associated address so it can be reused. Thus, you need as many addresses, as simultanously open orders.
4.    In your payment handler find order by to_address request parameter, check btc_amount and display payment confirmation to your happy customer!

Note: Alternatively you can use only one receiving address and match order by amount. Bitcoin is divisible to 8 decimal places. Instead of asking for 1.99 BTC, ask exactly for 1.99000001 where 000001 is a way to reliably identify the order. This is the easiest to start with, although a bit weird for your customers and limits your store privacy.

Is more difficult to implement (compared to an API call that sends order id and the receiving address allocated to that order) and less private (Addresses are being reused).

The whole idea is to not store the wallet online. This is why you have to pre-generate Bitcoin receiving addresses (i.e. 1000 of them) for your store.

This small, one-time inconvenience gives you unmatched protection compared to storing wallet on the server and generating addresses on demand.

BitcoinNotify is a "keep your wallet disconnected from the network and sleep well" service for Merchants. This is in contrast to MyBitcoin and other available solutions.

I didn't suggest storing the wallet online. I'm suggesting you let the merchant send you a (pre-generated) address together with an order-id when a new order is placed. This way there is no logic to apply when the notification arrives. What good is a SMS message if i must query a database in order to know which order it's referring to?

This also eliminates the need of giving you all the addresses in advance  (which is probably why you came up with this reserve-release-reuse mechanism in the first place..)

Confirmed payment notifications are now fully supported in BitcoinNotify.

Merchant decides how many confirmations are "enough" for his/her purpose.

It is also possible to order notifications on several confirmation levels, i.e. 0/unconfirmed for visual payment acceptance in the store, and 6 confirmations for actually shipping the item.

Feature suggestion: make the service respond to queries over XMPP or e-mail. E.g. allow users to query stats like block count, expected difference adjustment, time until adjustment, etc.. Basically similar to the various ";;bc" commands on the gribble IRC bot, but for those of us who don't get on IRC often.

Thanks for your suggestion. I'll consider it although these data are already available in other places (like blockexplorer API).

I have to say i really like this way of payment tracking. So much better to always have your wallet under control. And the API is straightforward - took me only 2-3 hours to implement a django module handling the payment process.
Can definitely recommend this!

I'm happy to see more and more individuals and businesses tracking Bitcoin payments through BitcoinNotify.

By popular demand https://britcoin.co.uk and https://bitchange.pl exchanges has been added.

This allows you to get notified about Bitcoin prices in GBP and PLN to complement already available USD and EUR.

Subscribe price notifications to adjust prices in your store or simply if you seek bargain.

I don't like to repeat my self, but this is worth stressing Wink - BitcoinNotify is a "keep your wallet offline and sleep well" service for Merchants. BitcoinNotify automates accepting Bitcoins to your wallet by monitoring the Bitcoin network. This is in contrast to MyBitcoin and other available solutions.

Soooo, any explanation why the site was down for the majority of this week?

I was just considering implementing the API and now I am afraid to rely on it.

I believe it was purchased by the untrustworthy individuals behind "CoinExchanger". Try bitcoinmonitor.net (thread).
