How Secure Is It?
Payment is fast, easy and secure, adding an extra layer of privacy to your purchase. Please note that Bitpay have recently adopted a new standard for receiving payments: users no longer have to manually copy addresses, and transaction information is now pulled automatically into wallet software. It's easier than it's ever been to spend your bitcoins - just check that you're happy with the amounts and miners' fees and hit the send button!
Most major wallets are compatible, including Bitcoin Core, Electrum, Airbitz and Mycellium, but currently there are still some wallets out there that don't support Bitpay's URL based address system. If you're having issues then you may need to move your funds to a compatible wallet first and send the payment from there. You'll find more information at the BitPay support pages. Don't forget that you can call 01782 749 955 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for advice from our in-house crypto currency experts.
It should also be noted that Bitpay doesn't support 'Replace-by-Fee' wallet functionality, so please make sure that this option is left un-checked. You'll find more info here.

Where to Buy Bitcoin
Bitcoin can be purchased quickly and easily using sites like Coinbase, Local Bitcoins and Paxful. Coinbase allows you to link a bank card to your account and swap pounds for bitcoin. Local Bitcoins and Bitbargain allow you to purchase the currency directly from sellers using bank transfer and other methods. Paxful, works in a similar way, matching you up with sellers, but it has a comprehensive list of 300 payment methods that includes Paypal, credit & debit cards, wire transfer and a huge array of giftcards (including Amazon, iTunes, Playstation, etc.).
