Terms of Service

Shipping and Liability for Loss or Theft

  • I will ship to the 50 US only!
  • $10 is the minimum load for reloadable gift cards. I must receive this prior to shipment.
  • All risk of loss or theft is assumed by the buyer, including loss or theft during shipment!
  • I send cards via USPS uninsured mail, meaning that the initial $10 load on reloadable cards, and the entire balance on non-reloadable cards, could be lost or stolen!
  • If you pay for an initial load on a reloadable card in excess of the $10 minimum, I will only put $10 on until you confirm delivery to minimize risk, and then I'll add the rest. If the card were lost or stolen I could then refund the $90 difference.

Refunds

All sales are final; refunds will be given only at my discretion. Although I am not obligated to refund any payment the following terms apply to any refunds that I do issue:

  • If I have not exchanged a Bitcoin payment for US dollars, I will refund the original amount of Bitcoin I received, which may differ from the original US dollar amount depending on the exchange rate.
  • If I have exchanged a Bitcoin payment for US dollars, I may choose to refund the original US dollar amount in Bitcoin, which may differ from the original amount depending on the exchange rate.

Exchange Rate

  • Bitpay will determine the appropriate exchange rate for transactions processed by their service.
  • I may use the Blockchain.info "at time of transaction" exchange rate, or the Blockchain or Coinbase rate at time of confirmation to determine US dollar value of direct payments.
  • I reserve the right to refund the original amount of Bitcoin paid in the event of a large exchange rate variation prior to the order being processed. I will attempt to be fair in cases where the exchange rate rises rapidly after payment.
  • Notwithstanding the above, the US dollar value of payments will not be adjusted based on exchange rate variation after confirmation.

Reloadable Cards

  • There is a one time fee of $7.99 on reloadable cards.
  • There are no additional fees on the first load up to $100.
  • There is a 3.99% fee on all reloads.

I will attempt to process reloads within 12-24 hours, however, please allow up to 72 hours. The address used for deposits will be sent by email after purchase. Please, DO NOT send reloads to the Bitpay address. $10 is the minimum load for reloadable gift cards. I must receive this prior to shipment.

The card issuer has certain restrictions on loads and balances, these are the main ones:

  • The minimum re-load amount is $25.
  • The maximum load amount is $300.
  • The maximum balance is also $300.
  • The card balance may or may not be redeemable for cash depending on the circumstances. I am not responsible for refunds once the balance is loaded.

Other Terms

  • I reserve the right to refuse any order. Buyers with low trust may not be accepted, this is because I want to make sure that my early buyers will be honest about receiving the card.
  • Always treat your cards like cash! I am not the card issuer and am not nor can I be responsible for managing or safeguarding the funds on any card.
  • All cards are subject to card issuer restrictions for which I am not responsible.
  • These terms are subject to change without notice.
  • I reserve the right to discontinue the service at any time. Funds won't be kept in limbo though, I'll either process pending orders or refund them. You can count on me to be fair.
  • I reserve the right to discontinue service to any user should I choose to do so.

Posted in response to a reply on the old unmoderated thread:

A 3% reload fee and $10 minimum amount aren't bad, I will probably end up trying this, just to have a simple option to get gas if I don't have any cash sometime.
How long do you plan on doing this though? For the foreseeable future? What if it wasn't extremely successful and only a couple people bought and frequently used the cards, would you still do it for them? And why the moderated thread?

Answer these questions and I will most likely buy one.

I don't see a problem with reloading them for the foreseeable future. The less people who are doing it, the less of a burden it is right? I can promise this: I WILL notify my customers if I stop the service, so you won't be depositing money and not hearing from me.

The moderated thread just made me feel better, but on second thought, I can see how it might make buyers uncomfortable. I can make an moderated thread if it's a problem. Eventually, I plan on creating a website if there is enough demand for the service.

Yeah I will check one out. You have the cards on the way to you now right? You've already ordered them?

If you can maintain those low fees and good customer service, I could see you making some good business.

I will be ordering them tomorrow. If something doesn't work out I'll issue a full refund. If you'd prefer, I can PM you after I place the order.

So 1:1? Plus a 3 percent fee on top of that.
Am I correct?

Yes in general, assuming I understand your question correctly. The initial purchase of the card is different than a reload though: If you buy a reloadable card, you pay $7.99 which basically covers the all the various fees I have to pay as well as my time. There is no additional fee on the first load up to $100, so if you load $100 you'd pay $107.99 total. If you later wanted to add an additional $100, it would cost $103.

EDIT: An initial load of up to $100 could be done safely, I just won't add the full amount until the card is delivered for security reasons. I do have to load $10 because that is the minimum amount Shell will allow.

Yes. Just to ensure everything is clear, the $10 original load should be sent to the address that I will email you. That address is where you should send all future deposits. I'll be notified anytime a payment is sent and add it to your account.

EDIT: I received your payment and you should be receiving an email. If you would like, you can wait until I receive the cards before you send the initial load.

Just now had a break at work and sent $10 to the supplied address in the email. I just typed $10 in blockchain.info and hit 'send', which is ~0.0262985 BTC at the moment according to them.

I trust you enough to go ahead and send the $10, but in case something goes wrong or happens, just refund it to the sending address please.

Thanks

Hey Razick- congratulations. I wonder if people even really understand what a big deal this is. this isnt converting btc to a gift card to buy a T-shirt at the gap. gass is a commodity. i really like the price point. it makes total sense. it would defeat the purpose if it were higher than the average conversion rate to fiat. I also hope you dont mind if i feel like i played a  small a part in this happening - but you are working for a higher cause. Gas is a commodity- this is big. Well you already know i want some gas gift cards, i will probably take a schell too for back up- but in my town they are over priced. i will pm you.

Absolutely! I don't expect to make a lot of money, but we really need this service. Thanks for the idea!

The only caveat at this point is that I don't know exactly how I will sell the non-reloadable gift cards. It's going to be a little bit of a challenge to make it a good deal without buying a ton in advance, but I'll see what I can do.

so here is a guy that can sell you gas cards using btc. now you dont have to convert your btc into cash. the money you would have spent on gas now stays in your pocket. i have always felt btc is for the average guy. converting btc into gas keeps the value of it strong while limiting the need to exchange it.

Hi Snarpill. Due to higher than expected fees from the card issue on reloadable cards and lower costs than expected for non-reloadable cards, I will not be offering reloadable cards at this time. I've refunded your payment to the sending address as requested, here's the transaction hash: 59adf73293bc9c470acff54a02c7b642e1823d59335f565185f01d5c3b164299

If you would like to purchase a non-reloadable card, let me know. Otherwise, I appreciate your business and apologize for the inconvenience.
