Dear Bitcoin Spenders,
We've been up to a lot behind the scenes here at Spend Bitcoins, and we thought we'd let you in on some of it.
Firstly, you may have noticed an outage for several hours a few days ago. Sorry about that. It happened when we were migrating to a new server to finish off getting our ordering process automated so you don't have to wait up to twelve hours while I'm sleeping here in Australia. That is also a very important step in getting our spending tool out to the masses. It's nearing completion. I'm very excited about the ease this will add to bitcoin use!
Secondly, in case you haven't noticed, we've added a lot more options for cashing out your bitcoins. The most exciting of these is international wire. That's right, you can deposit bitcoins straight into your bank account at the current rate without driving the rate down & without paying any trade fees at all! You just pay the $15 our bank charges us to complete the wire.
We've also listened to customer requests and added the following convert options: fiverr, Apple, iTunes & ThinkGeek. If you'd like to make a request, just click "Submit a Place" at the top of the convert page and make your suggestion.
Lastly, we've added the ability on the convert page to add your bitcoin-accepting site as a premium listing on Spend Bitcoins' "Places that Accept Bitcoins" page. In case you're wondering, we've had 27,250 pageviews in the last 30 days. Just scroll down to "Premium Spend BTC Listing" on our convert page to see directions.
Thanks to your continued support, we're growing every day. Our first priority is getting the Spend Bitcoins tool out, but we have a lot more on the back burner just waiting to move to the front burner. Stay tuned!
