I was initially excited at the prospect of buying bitcoins at walmart, but if an ID is required, my enthusiasm is dampened.

Do all these CVS/walmart/7-11 type services require ID?

Does bitinstant accept cash-in-the-mail or money orders?


Buy a TREZOR! Premier BTC hardware wallet. If you're reading this, you should probably buy one if you don't already have one. You'll thank me later.

No id is needed to deposit.  Only if you screw up and send $100 instead of $103.95.  zipzap will reject and then you have to call moneygram to get your money back.

There is a small issue with Zipzap's system at the moment. Some vendors are screwing up in the process.

I assure you this glitch is a temporary one and will be sorted within a few days.

Specifically, this is reference to the connivence fee. We've had a majority of successful payments, this is a rare issue.

If you have any issues, please email support@bitinstant.com with 24/7 service as soon as possible or call our local ny number.

Thanks!

From my experience with using the service at CVS:
When i do my registration of the payment with the "red phone" at CVS I tell some operator that i want to transfer some money to some account. I tell my name/address to the operator. After that i go to the counter to do the payment. They ask for ID to make sure that I am doing the right payment, and not the payment of some other random guy. This is for my protection. They just make sure that the names match. The clerk has no idea that this is a bitcoin purchase. So this is just plain pattern matching. Put away your tilfoil hats.

connivence fee.

connivance
(redirected from connivence)

The furtive consent of one person to cooperate with another in the commission of an unlawful act or crime

Well that certainly doesn't sound good!

I'm very surprised you support Brazil. From my understanding their tax system and regulations are complex.

http://www.doingbusiness.org/~/media/fpdkm/doing%20business/documents/annual-reports/english/db12-fullreport.pdf

I'm curious... Who is bitinstant? Did you have a great deal of experience in this business (transfering money) before you started bitinstant? Is bitinstant the same people as Trade Hill?

Charlie,

 I think that there is a huge issue with Zipzap's system, not small.

 Bitinstant is fine but, Zipzap does NOT have identified two of my payments, executed day 24... The money isn't in my bank account anymore, since day 24, of course... And Bitinstant does not receive anything from Zipzap yet...

 Also, Zipzap tells me by e-mail, on day 25, that my two "boletos" was expired! And I have the payment vouchers in hands... So, not identifying two payments is a huge issue, at least for me, it is...

 Anyway, the Bitinstant support (Charlie) is working with me to solve this and nothing bad will happen, I'm sure.

 Keep the good work @ Bitinstant!

 Can I try it again tomorrow?! Making a new Zipzap "boleto"?

 I hope Zipzap works this time. Charlie, do you think that it is safe to use Zipzap again? Or it is better to wait a couple days?!

 Also, Bitinstant is doing a "lowercase" at the string of the destination account logins!! If the exchange require a "case sensitive" login to identify its users, this will be a problem too.

Best,
Thiago

Thiago,

Yes, it is a small problem because it is only effecting some Boleto orders, including yours.

You made the transfer Thursday evening, and now its a holiday weekend so a bit of bad luck.

Like I said, your situation is under control. Feel free to make a new Boleto tomorrow.

Thanks

I've made several purchases via CVS moneygram -> bitcoin to e-mail, and I've never had to show any I.D.  The person on the phone does ask for my information however (name, address, and phone number).

After a couple failed attempts (problems on my side), I just successfully did cash->bitcoins via email.

I paid the cashier $500 USD and by the time I had walked out to get back on my motorcycle, I received an email from coinapult that my Bitcoins were ready to pickup.

Overall, I paid about 5.15% fee ($25.73) .This service is unbelievably awesome compared to previous methods of getting Bitcoin. +10,000 Internets to BitInstant for this service. LOVE IT!

I highly recommend this service for purchases between $100-1,000 USD.. Above that, it starts to make sense to use International wire. Below that, probably dwolla, as shitty as they are, is probably still the most economical bet.

At the bottom of the BitInstant page is the message:
"Temporary issues with our "bitcoin to email" service"

Does that mean don't choose that option, or just that there could be issues if you do?
