I used to run opencart with the tabsa extension that routed through mybitcoin.com.  For many months it worked great, with one known downtime for me, until the end of mybitcoin  I lost no money for me or customers during the failure of mybitcoin.

I have been looking for a replacement solution and so far nothing has come up except for the 'roll my own' running magneto and my own bitcoind on a server below:

https://github.com/jalder/Magento-Bitcoin-Payment-Module#readme

The problem is I need something with a 'back end' like virtumart, opencart or magneto.  I can not use something like bitpay that has individual purchasing of single items (even if multipes can be carted) without a back end.  I just have too many items for something like that. 

Any suggestions?  Anyone ready with any new services that match my needs?  I am willing to pay a percentage fee for something that does not require me to run my own server and bitcoind but at some point I need to move.  My store has been down for a while now and I miss shipping items to people. 

What is everyone else using?

We're in the exact same boat you are.  SquareWear & Metacoin are both down, and we've delayed the launch of our third business because we were banking on mybitcoin.com to process the transactions.  We haven't found anything we're happy with yet.  We're kind of waiting for the MtGox merchant services to come online, but the site has said it will "be up soon" for a very long time.  We're definitely interested any suggestions as well.

I am going to the bitcoin conference and see if there is anything new by then, after then I would have to go with the mageto-bitcoind approach.  Hopefully a provider will come up with something soon.  I had pretty good volume before and would love to be back to shipping products to the community.

The API for bit-pay.com is almost done.  It is a JSON API and will come with a few client side utilities that wrap the JSON API.  Shortly after that we'll create an OpenCart plugin (it's the #1 request we've had for cart integration).

At least a prestashop module is finished and working fine. Thread here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=31554.0

More modules on the way, namely Magento, WHMCS, osCommerce & OpenCart.

They have an IRC channel and phone numbers that you can call listed on teir website.

Hope that helps.

You may want to have a look on BitcoinNotify. Accepting Bitcoin payments is as simple as handling HTTP requests.

  • payments go directly to your private wallet - trust no 3rd party
  • keep your wallet disconnected from the network so it can never be stollen by hackers
  • there is nothing to install on the server
  • there is no external API to call
  • customer never leaves your store (no 3rd party site involved)
  • receive HTTP updates of the BTC exchange rates

See how to accept Bitcoin payments in your store / application / bussiness.

Feel free to pm me if you need any help.

When the OpenCart plugin is released, I'll be sure to make full use of it!

I just successfully set up ZenCart and built a nice store to grow the bitcoin economy. However the bitcoin payment module requires a running instance of bitcoind.

Now.. ZenCart is really awesome and allows noobs to easily create a really complex store (which is what I want). However.. Where can I get bitcoind running, do I need to pay ANOTHER hosting company as mine won't rund bitcoind? CoinDaemon seemed the solution but it appears to be down...

How do you guys do it? I want this store set up for bitcoins so badly... And starting from scratch is not really an option (especially if then I run into similar troubles)

The Bit-Pay.com payment API is now available.  It is a JSON API that enables you to create invoices and receive payment status updates.  It also comes with command line utilities for creating invoices, fetching invoices and receiving invoice status updates.  Should be very easy to plug into most shopping cart software.

Full documentation is here: https://bit-pay.com/downloads/bitpayApi-0.1.pdf
