I just wrote to the german amazon, if they already accept Bitcoins and what they answered was nice in my opinion.

They said something in the sense of: We are not accepting Bitcoins now, but we are keeping an eye on new currencys. And the person that answered me sent a copy of my request to the right department of amazon.

I guess if people ask often enough, they will really consider it. But please be carefull to not appear as spammers Wink



Also i wrote to some other companys where i was thinking about purchasing goods. Thats something we all can do.
If you want to buy something, then ask first if they already accept Bitcoins.
When enough people have asked, the shops will consider it, since it might give them more customers.


Keep on the good work Wink

I have contacted a customer service agent at blizzard's World of Warcraft's billing department trying to convince them to start accepting bitcoins as an alternate method of payment for people who have no credit card and are not entirely interested in going out to buy time cards. The agent I talked to didn't seem to know about bitcoins, so I'm not sure if blizzard may have already been considering or not. He told me that he would bring it up when he talks to his boss, who will have to talk to his boss, etc etc. I think I am going to try to contact someone a little bit higher up so that I can get more info on whether or not they've heard about/considered this payment option.

Just imagine if blizzard actually goes through with this.. I wouldn't be surprised if bitcoins userbase doubles or triples.

Help Bitcoins by buying clothes, technology, books, etc. through people/stores that accept BTC. This will increase overall value of BTC as well as mitigate unnecessary bank transaction fees.

I am going to start trying to convince www.hakshop.com AKA hak5.org/shop
Hak5 is a popular hacker podcast and might consider adding bitcoins to their storefront.

Question: Do we need to add ourselves to the spreadsheet or does someone else do that for us?

I think that it's completely ineffective to try to "convince" a site to accept payments in btc.

The only effective way would be to coordinate everybody to ask them to do so, and then buying something.

For example I'm sure that a chinese shop like http://www.dealextreme.com/ or http://www.tinydeal.com/ would be interested in bitcoins if some hundred of customers ask to support it.

But how many of us is ready to do so?
(I would be one of them, btw)

Hello BitMole,
I live in Italy, and our bitcoin community is really small, for now.
General people is very conservative and most of them if very suspicious about bitcoin.
Still, they trust the Euro and governments, go figure :-)

Anyway, I can try to organize a group, we have a forum, we have a facebook page and we know almost all of the italian bloggers, so we can try.

My goal with my previous post was to suggest a thread to coordinate activities toward some goal, as to make a site accept bitcoins.
I suppose that the first major site that accepts them will pave the road for the others.

If we move in a coordinate way some lobbying should be effective, I guess.

FSF now accepts Bitcoin, I would like to reclaim the pledge.
"Donate via Bitcoin, the peer-to-peer virtual currency. The FSF's Bitcoin address is "1PC9aZC4hNX2rmmrt7uHTfYAS3hRbph4UN". Note that since we are using a single address for receiving all contributions, we are not providing full anonymity. Further, we support the idea of people being able to donate anonymously, but we can't speak to the security or soundness of Bitcoin in the long-term."

Under: https://my.fsf.org/donate ->: Other ways to donate.

GeoHot didn't show interest plus lost my support after settling with Sony. D:<

I am trying to get a small local soap company called Soap Wreck to accept bitcoins. They might be interested in this payment option.

edit: Their website is Soapwreck.com, also edited to "trying" because I spoke with them about a week ago, this was the reason I registered.

Okay,
So soapwreck is going to "tentativley accept" bitcoins. They are noticed the price fluctuates so they are going to try it out and see how they can do with exchanges. But looks like it was a success!

How do I go about collecting my reward Cheesy:D?

Hi, I've suggested the following to freeforums.org:

Quote
Hi, I'm interested in purchasing a domain for my forum, but I want to pay for it with bitcoins. If you want to be paid in dollars, there's a service that can make both parties happy:

https://bit-pay.com/

If you start to accept bitcoins, I promise I will advertise your services in the bitcoin forum (with a lot of potential customers).
Let me know what you decide.

cheers

Thay give you the forum for free and then charge you for upgrades.
Let's see what they answer.

2 different forms of free-money: Freicoin (free of basic interest because it's perishable), Mutual credit (no interest because it's abundant)

I've just read there's no bounty anymore. Never mind, I really want to pay for this with bitcoins.
You should change the title of the thread though.

Anyway, if someone wants to thank me for this: 1N9u8az3nkztXP3xUcYFhoFsNAvARxBowq
