Bitmunchies.com is intended to provide access to goods unavailable elsewhere in the bitcoin economy.  I'm focusing on food from the start, but I intend to expand the product selection according to interest.  A partial list of our current selection is:

Mac & Cheese
Ramen
Chicken Noodle Soup
Tea
Red Bull
Slim Jims

I am currently looking for better supplier and new products, so please send me product requests.  I will work hard to get them into the store!  Any other comments are likewise welcome.

Please, enjoy, and lets keep building this community up!

Sincerely,
Ira Miller


Software:
Bitmunchies is built on top of osCommerce.  Bear Bones limited (www.bearbones.us) developed an osCommerce bitcoin payment module for this project.  It needs to be cleaned up a bit first, but I will be releasing it to the osCommerce community in the coming weeks.  If anyone is interested in helping out, shoot me a PM.

Exchange Rate
Since the exchange rate is moving so quickly, I chose to stick with a fixed exchange rate.  It will be updated at my discretion to reflect price changes.  I realize that the target is moving very quickly, but this beats extremely dynamic product prices.

Checkout process
This should be pretty intuitive.  There is only one payment option: Bitcoin.  Upon submitting your order, you will be given a unique bitcoin address.  After the funds are transferred and confirmed four(4) times, your order will be mailed.

Shipping
All orders are shipped USPS or UPS.  Orders confirmed before 9am will be shipped the same business day.  All others will ship the next business day.  Expect shipping prices to go down significantly as volume goes up.  Right now I'm shipping most of these items myself, and it is a time consuming process.

Any jobs available? I can help with excel-type stuff, financial stuff (eg. getting a loan for you, if you need one), or in general just general freelance stuff... I even know a tiny bit of Java.

I will ship items worldwide at cost + $5 handling fee.  Right now, though, I have some work to do on the shipping module, so international orders will have to be emailed to me.  If you send me (here, on the site or on #bitcoin-otc) a list of bitmunchies products, I'll get back to you with shipping costs.

I have no jobs available at the moment, but hopefully things will expand quickly. Wink

You've got stuff I want (mac and cheese and ramen) - two suggestions.

1. Chicken maruchan ramen, beef is meh.

2. Use the moving 7 or 30 day average from bitcoincharts.com - that provides a stable, yet accurate, price.

Yes, $5 in bitcoins.  Smiley

It is hard to set prices in bitcoins, when day over day volatility is +-20% against USD...  Lets just say 2BTC for right now.

EDIT
I like the 7-day moving average idea... Will look into implementing it.

If you tried to live entirely from bitmunchies, you just might get scurvy Tongue. Perhaps adding multivitamins to your inventory would be in order?

This is an awesome idea, but as far as the exchange rate goes, why not peg the prices to the 24 hour or seven day moving average once each day?

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

In addition to carrots, you should offer pizza for 10,000 BTC.

I am actually working on getting products from a local bakery.  I'll see if he can make pizza.  Smiley

A script is also under development to automatically set the prices to the 7 day average at MTGOX.  Honestly, I'm working on quite a few things.  This is fun, and I want to provide a real service.

The exchange rate was just lowered a bit, so that it is once again in line with the 7 day.

Just offer frozen pizza, shipped in a cooler.

Won't be cheap, though.
