Hello bitcoin world,

We've been working on a way for people with bitcoins to subscribe to their favorite subscription websites and wanted to see if there is a need/want for this. We plan on accepting any membership you so choose (most can be accepted). You can think of us as the spendbitcoins of subscription memberships!  Grin

We notice someone doing this at a much https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=44117.0 smaller level. We want to take this to the next level.

I would add a poll but as a newb I don't think I can? Nevermind found it adding it!

Thanks for reading!

Note: the website is pretty much all built out we just wanted to see what kind of questions people may ask.

Note #2: Of course let us know what subscription site you would be interested in also!

We had thought about that also. So you mean affiliates paid out in bitcoin?

We are going to do anything that has a subscription. So could be from adult to newspaper paywalls.

Thanks for everyone who is voting! I figured "more information needed" would be the winner so far!  We will put up the website shortly so you can get a better idea of what we are thinking!  Grin

I've asked this on the kink-thread and you seam to have the bigger vision so maybe you are willing to answer my questions:
Anyway so what happens next? What happens if I pay too late? Will you take the money? Will you send it back to where it came from? After how many confirmations will you accept the payment?

Does kink know/like your service? Do you pay them by credit card? Will they lock you down for fraud when the same credit card is used a million times for different accounts? How does the credit card provider like your service?

Please tell (a lot) more about the implications of running such a service as I was thinking about doing something similar for prepaid cards and essentially everything that you only buy a little letter sequence at. Many browser games have gift codes and such.

My concerns were:
  • Will the original vendor like my business? If I want to resell prepaid card numbers do they have an API so I can buy them in bulk or would I have to scrub the cards open and get sued over it?
  • Will the payment provider like it or lock down my credit card for fraud suspicions?
  • Is it sensitive with respect to money laundering laws or so. (This one would more apply to prepaid cards then to porn subscriptions)

Yes, I did see what you had written. I'll reply to it in a minute thanks!

bitcoin is fine but if you can offer dollars as well even better. I did see a site where the bitcoin address of the affiliate is added to the link to the site and then if anyone purchases a cut goes to that address, dont know enough about coding to make it myself and not sure if the processing was manual or not but seems the right direction

Im not sure what you had in mind but if you can get affiliates sending people to sites that use bitcoin its got to boost the overall economy as well as those involved



We had thought about that also. So you mean affiliates paid out in bitcoin?
