I just realized I've never paid anyone to their firstbits before ..how the hell would that work?

If I see btc.to/4a1  or  payb.tc/345   <- which part of that am I paying it to and where would I put that in instawallet?

I feel like such newb!  Shocked

edit: I mean I see http://www.firstbits.com/   how the hell do i even get a firstbits address to begin with ?

payb.tc/345

this one would be easy, it would display a full bitcoin address on the page.

for example: http://payb.tc/donate shows my full donation address.
http://payb.tc/alliewonder show the full address of some girl who likes showing off her bewbs on reddit.

those pages also have links to the various API options, such as:


http://payb.tc/donate/qr
http://payb.tc/donate/text
http://payb.tc/donate/json
http://payb.tc/donate/xml


edit: btc.to operates similarly... you just need to put it into your browser's address bar and get the full bitcoin address.
