If I've helped you or you just feel generous, please consider sending me some BTC! I don't need anything major, but every little bit helps out.

  • It looks like the MiniBits logo is a JPEG image. The logo might look better if you change it to a .png file, to get rid of the artifacts.
  • You could change this:
Code:
<option value="0.10 BTC">0.10 BTC$0.99 USD</option>
<option value="0.15 BTC">0.15 BTC$1.49 USD</option>
<option value="0.20 BTC">0.20 BTC$1.95 USD</option>
<option value="0.25 BTC">0.25 BTC$2.45 USD</option>
<option value="0.30 BTC">0.30 BTC$2.95 USD</option>
to this:
Code:
<option value="0.10 BTC">0.10 BTC for $0.99 USD</option>
<option value="0.15 BTC">0.15 BTC for $1.49 USD</option>
<option value="0.20 BTC">0.20 BTC for $1.95 USD</option>
<option value="0.25 BTC">0.25 BTC for $2.45 USD</option>
<option value="0.30 BTC">0.30 BTC for $2.95 USD</option>
Or you could put a dash:
Code:
<option value="0.10 BTC">0.10 BTC - $0.99 USD</option>
instead of 'for'.

  • You could put another BitcoinAdvertisers/AnonymousAds box by the current one, you could make a little more money that way.
  • The User Agreement and FAQ text does not link to anything currently, I could help you make the FAQ if you want. In "By purchasing you agree to the User Agreement," "User Agreement" should be linked once you get that ready.
  • If you type or copy in a Bitcoin address into the "Your BTC Address" field, the text is white (should be black IMO, although you can still see it by highlighting.) The field could also be a little longer. You could do this:
Code:
<input type="text" name="os1" style="color:black" maxlength=34 size=40>
Cheers.

I would add a contact email as well as your forum contact info.

Also, i would link the FAQ/ User Agreement at some point Wink if to nothing else than an 'in development' page.

The prices are at a fixed price and not up to time with the BTC market because it runs through PayPal.
"and not up to time" sounds awkward to me. Maybe use "... not synchronized with the BTC market data ... "

Generally, the expression is "not up to date"

I recommend asking me for a signature from my GPG key before doing a trade. I will NEVER deny such a request.

"The prices are at a fixed price and not up to time with the BTC market because it runs through PayPal."

This is a very awkward sentence in your FAQ.

1)Right now it says "The system is manual, please wait at least 24 hours to receive your BTC."

While that reads ok let me offer a suggestion

"All transactions are manually processed. Please allow up to 24 hours to receive your order before contacting us [insert link]"

2) Move the BitcoinAdvertisers banner directly below the "Buy" and "Sell" areas or, use a vertical one like the one you have now for Satoshi Dice. If you make it vertical place it to the left just like the Satoshi Dice one. It will be balanced and uniform. Also this will put the visual focus on the "MiniBits" banner and the "Buy" and "Sell" areas. You want your users to burn the banner image into their memory and you want the business interface to remain visually unobstructed. Right now I keep looking at the Bitcoin advertisers box right above the "Buy" and "Sell" areas and not the actual business area. Dont worry, people will still click the banner ads if they are moved just slightly.

I imagine that you want the type of rapid transactions like BitInstant offers. You have an almost perfect layout for that already

3) Live Bitcoin price ticker (small) at the top and the bottom.

4) The option to buy 1 Bitcoin. (market price plus one dollar USD-you may find that you will get a lot of people buying one BTC at a time. The one dollar flat fee over market price will allow you to sell without having to worry about checking market price every hour or so and adjusting the site. That fee should cover you for the entire day)

By the way I love the idea for the site and sometimes I am short a few bit cents, or I just want a half of a bitcoin to play a game, so I will be making a purchase soon. We need more places where people can purchase bitcoins with paypal.

All the best!

and if you use any of my ideas you can send the bitcents to

You need to make your "MiniBits" logo image linked to the top of the site, so users can return to the top from all pages.  (Then you can drop the "Go Back" that shows up on some of the pages) -- as an example, you I get stranded on the feedback page without any way to go back to the top of the site.

I'd replace all mailto: links with a form reply like you have for feedback (but add in an added line so a copy of the email can be sent to the submitter's email address) or also post the text of your email address instead of using the word "here" as your link text.  I personally cannot use mailto: links, so I have to lookup and copy the email address.  I also think people who are not registered on this forum will NOT be able to use it to send you email without having to also register here on this forum.

I think someone else already mentioned User Agreement and FAQ on all pages?  If you're US based, you might want to do copyright notice?

I agree about the tower add on the side, then stack the buy BTC over the Sell BTC paragraph in the center.

And my two cents on the manual / wait 24 hours... "Transactions are processed manually and may take up to 24 hours.  If you have not received your BTC after 24 hours, contact us at myemail@someplace.com"

1. On the homepage, your margins are too big or something: I have a scrollbar even though there's no content to scroll to.
2. The title for .5 BTC and up is "LargerAmounts;" is there something wrong with a space?
3. On Larger Amounts, it says,
Quote
You may only purchase a max of 2.00 BTC a day...for now.
Generally, one uses a space after the ellipses.
4. The email address is unreadable -- blue on blue
5. Why have an email address and a contact form?

I recommend asking me for a signature from my GPG key before doing a trade. I will NEVER deny such a request.

And... the other 4 points?
In any case, it's important to have a website which works cross-browser. Chrome represents 50% of the market at this point, and on it, your CSS:
Code:
webkit-any-link {
color: -webkit-link;
overrides the other styles, including main.style.css:
Code:
a {
color: #white;
text-decoration: none;
}
... so you should probably fix that with an inline style:
Code:
style="color: white;"
