no worky. explanation: the amazon certificate comes from Amazon Payments and they need to "verify" the account. part of the process is an US based address (country is hardcoded, seems no way for me to register with the amazon payments site and redeem the code)

Thanks for trying, mila.  I've refunded your BTC payment and included an extra 2 BTC as a token of my appreciation.  I'll update the FAQ to mention that Amazon Payments are US only.

I've fixed a bug which caused some payments to be sent after 3 confirmations instead of 2.

CoinCard had unexpected downtime this weekend.  The Bitcoin daemon crashed and just as I was brining it back up, my home Internet connection went down with an extended outage.  Bad timing!  I sent out a text message to Twitter with a brief update.  Anyway, my home 'net connection came back up, so now I can access the CoinCard server again.  The site's back up and accepting orders.

Sometimes living 45 miles from a wi-fi hotspot is inconvenient :-)  Sorry for trouble.

CashStar, which handles gift cards for Domino's, Papa John's and Best Buy has taken a few hours to process a couple orders since CoinCard came back.  Most of the time, they process orders quickly, but these outliers are inconvenient.  I've updated the prices page to better inform customers of potential delays.

Hello everyone  -  CoinCard seems like a great service!  Grin  I would also like to throw in an alternative my service http://www.btcinstant.com  - We are essentially "gift cards"  also as we allow you to exchange bitcoins for virtual credit cards.  Any questions just ask thanks!

I've added some server monitoring infrastructure to make sure we don't get a repeat of the downtime from two weekends ago.  If bitcoind crashes, the scripts restart it and reopen CoinCard once bitcoind is stable again.

I've reached one of Amazon's sending limits for January.  I've temporarily disabled Amazon Payments as an option until I see whether they reset the limit based on the calendar month or a rolling 30-day month.  I'll also begin making changes to avoid this limit in the future.

The limit is based on calendar month, so my limit reset today.  I've reenabled Amazon Payments.  Changes are in progress to avoid the limit in the future.

I finished changing the Amazon Payments code so that CoinCard is no longer subject to the payment limits it hit last month.  Enjoy!

Domino's changed their gift card provider yesterday.  I'm in the process of updating and testing the checkout process for that particular gift card.  Until then, Domino's cards are disabled.  I'll post again once they're working.

I'm not able to automate purchases with Domino's new gift card provider.  I've removed Domino's from the site.

Amazon Payments are still available. So are gift cards for Best Buy and Papa John's.

High demand over the last couple days has exhausted my Amazon funds.  I've temporarily disabled Amazon Payments until a bank transfer clears (probably Monday).

Bank transfer has cleared, so Amazon Payments are back.  I've also changed the site to give an "Insufficient funds" message if this happens again.  That should be more useful than removing Amazon from the menu.

Wow, that was fast!  Amazon funds are sold out again.  I should have more funds tomorrow and then another transfer posting a couple days after that.  I'll keep working on changes to handle these volumes better.

Thanks the purchases.
