Starting today, if you live in the US, you can use your credit or debit card to purchase bitcoins.  If you live outside the US, your not out of luck.  We plan on extending our services to other countries in early 2012.  What we provide is pretty straight forward:

  • Buy Bitcoins Using Your Credit or Debit Card
  • Instant Delivery to Your Wallet (New Customers May Experience a Delay)
  • Our Prices Are Updated Every Minute to Reflect the Exchange Rate
  • Safe and Secure, Completely PCI Compliant

We would love to hear your thoughts and suggestions on ways to improve our service!

I sent an email to support@simplecoin.com to report a typo, but the email bounced with a message saying, "We're writing to let you know that the group you tried to contact (support) may not exist, or you may not have permission to post messages to the group"

I haven't gotten past the homepage, because I'm not interested in purchasing ATM, but when/where do I give my CC info? Is that page HTTPS?

Looks like a great way for new BTCers to buy their first coin!  Will recommend to my non-technical friends. How long should new users expect it to take between placing the order and receiving their coins?

Just ordered some coins. Waiting for them to appear in my wallet.  I guess this quote answers my first question as to how you plan to deal with the charge back issues that have killed all other previous attempts to do this:

Quote
Chargeback Policy: The practice of claiming a refund or requesting a chargeback after having purchased on our site is considered fraudulent. Customers seeking to resolve any billing errors are required to contact us via email or phone. Any chargeback attempted for products provided by SimpleCoin will be firmly defended, and a $150 administrative fee will be assessed automatically and without exception. If the chargeback is completed successfully, and if the disputed amount is not determined by SimpleCoin to have been charged in error, the entire disputed amount will be re-assessed along with a $150 chargeback fee. SimpleCoin will turn the matter over to a collection agency to recover the chargeback amount and the chargeback fees and assessed fee plus any collection fees, and will result in it being reported to credit reporting bureaus such as Experian, Equifax, or Trans Union.

So, you are trying to "scare away" the criminals?

Our family was terrorized by Homeland Security.  Read all about it here:  http://www.jmwagner.com/ and http://www.burtw.com/  Any donations to help us recover from the $300,000 in legal fees and forced donations to the Federal Asset Forfeiture slush fund are greatly appreciated!

Wow, I suppose this is one way around it - charge $150 dollars to their credit card assuming it is there credit card. Interesting approach! Grin

I think that your price are not attractive. 20% to 30% over the mtgox price.

But good luck. A lot of people are asking for a simpler way to buy bitcoin.

2 questions people would probably like to see answered.

What do you use to calculate the cost per bitcoin? Why is the smallest amount you can buy 3 bitcoins (i assume it is because of CC fees)?

Yup!  As soon as you go to checkout your bumped to https.

I really think that you should deliver HTTPS end to end for the site. As I clicked the checkout button, I got the red Chrome warning page about the site not being what I'm looking for. This behavior will certainly scare off a chunk of non-techie users.

Whoah! 30% price difference to go from Dwolla's 4-day turnaround to "instant".  No thank you.  Good concept, though.

Ordered 10 coins, paid a premium for them but got them almost instantly.  Nice service.  Good luck with it.
