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

You could always get those from http://www.myhealthyorganics.com/

Argumentum ad lunam: the fallacy that because Bitcoin's price is rising really fast the currency must be a speculative bubble and/or Ponzi scheme.

Proxy buying delivery pizza would be a nerve racking job.  Unless you can hire someone cheap with great English to sit by the phone, you're gonna have a fun time of it.  :-/

I don't know about all that.  What about the online system for PapaJohn's pizzia?  I'm sure that their online ordering system uses some kind of API that could be connected to, if they will let you, which is a big if.

"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."

Here in Pittsburgh, the local (and legendary) pizza place Mineo's overnights pizzas.  They cook them half-way.  Then freeze them.  Then ship them overnight without any dry ice or anything.  Then people either let the pizza thaw and cook immediately, or throw it in the freezer for later.

I did send one of these to a friend, and he said it tasted exactly like the real thing.  There wasn't a noticeable quality degradation with the freezing process.

But they don't accept bitcoins... yet.

Hey the site seems to be coming along nicely, I bet that is almost a full time job now. I really hope you can get a better supplier, Your prices seem a little high,But I know thats the cost of the small quantity sales. Anyway, were you located, there should be some grocery store suppliers. For my grocery store I used krasdale, they have a crap load of products at pretty good prices.

He said it was prohibitively expensive. Shipping with dry ice is certainly not cheap!

It is not prohibitively expensive, just very expensive.  :/  Pizza is on the site because everyone keeps requesting it.  I costed it out, and that is what it would take.  I think that you'll find the rest of our products are chosen for easy shipping.  As such, they're reasonably priced.

I'd also like to mention that we increased our selection by 50% today, including a new Hygiene category.

Because of the volatile (read: glorious) exchange rate movement over the last few days, I've pegged the price significantly above the 7-day average.  I hope that helps!

Just a FYI- got my order today, well packed (no broken noodles!) and just what I ordered. Smiley

Man, this was some expensive ramen! (given new exchange rates, at the time it was reasonable Smiley )

You know, I was concerned that the exchange rate was so high because there were so many long term long position holders.  It seems possible that the price is supported by a good amount of commerce.  In truth, though, we can't really say it won't take a dive down and make your ramen seem cheap, by comparison.

If we want prices to go up, we must continue to build this market and spend, until everyone wants a bitcoin or 10000.  Smiley

Its a bit weird how when you click Food-> (129) it will only show 30 results: I'm guessing it doesn't show products on a subcategory?

btw how is the shipping to Europe? Do you have any idea how much longer and expensive it is?

A medium sized USPS priority mail box ships to Western Europe for 5.75 BTC.  The dimensions are 11"x8-1/2"x5-1/2".  For smaller packages, it is cheaper.  Prices balloon quickly as you go up in mass or volume, though.

The reason it messes up the count is because it double counts items which are linked to multiple categories.  I know it is annoying, but it is just one of a thousand little osCommerce issues I'm working on.

Someone needs to do this in a real time local level.  Like a bitcoin grubhub.  You go online... you send the bitcins, someone delivers your food.

I am in NYC if someone wants to get this going.

Awesome awesome store.  All we need is a hundred more sites just like this (not that I want competition to ruin you).  This is what expanding Bitcoin infrastructure is all about.
