People often wonder about amazon bitcoin payment, one of the hottest currencies in current time, a digital currency.
There is a way to convert an Amazon gift card to bitcoin. Bitcoin’s value has increased sharply in recent times.
From India, it is not easy to get or use Bitcoins. People often ask how do I get Bitcoins and where to spend them?
I used to do forex trading in the International market, and once for withdrawal, I chose withdrawal method as Bitcoin.
This is how I received $20 (0.00344 BTC) into my Bitcoin wallet. Its value had increased to $25 in just 2-3 weeks, but I was not able to use the bitcoins anywhere. Hence I started doing my research.
Stay tuned, and I will let you know how I managed to use my Bitcoins below.
Is There Anything Like Amazon Bitcoin Payment In India ?
Two major online shopping sites in India are Flipkart and Amazon India, so I tried to do my research on Amazon Bitcoin payment and Flipkart Bitcoin payment.
As of now, there are no sites accepting Bitcoin in India as a direct payment method.
But I found an alternate solution to make Amazon Bitcoin payment, i.e., through purse.io.
There is an option to convert Amazon gift card to Bitcoin for Amazon payment through purse.io. But, it doesn’t mean you can buy Bitcoins directly with Amazon payments. You can do this via purse.io only.
For this first, you need to create an account in Purse.io.
Does Flipkart Accept Bitcoins?
As of now, there is no way to make payments at Flipkart through Bitcoins. In future, if I find a way to make payments through Bitcoin at Flipkart, I will update the same.
I hope I have cleared the query whether Flipkart accepts Bitcoins or not.
Steps To Create Account At Purse.io In India
To Create an account in purse.io, go to purse.io and click on signup button. Provide your email, name, password and click on create an account.
What To Do After Creating Purse.io Account
You have to create a public wish list at Amazon India. To create a wish list, you have to click on Create a Wish List link under your lists tab at Amazon site.
You can alternatively create the wish list through purse.io by clicking on the tab “name your discount.” It will redirect you to Amazon site, and there you can create your wish list.
Now you need to search the product you want to buy. Add it to your wish list, and that’s all.
But you may not find all the products that you have added to your wishlist at purse.io.
For example, I tried to add many items like mosquito repellent, cornflakes, toothpicks, mouse, pen drive and veg cutter, etc.
But could find only mouse, veg cutter and pen drives available at purse.io.
After that, you need to make your wish list public and agree to third-party shipping agreement.
Also, make sure you have unchecked “don’t spoil my surprises” checkbox from the wish list. This is required for purse.io to read your wish list and ship the items to your provided address.
To update your wish list, click on “edit this list.” After updating the details, select/provide correct shipping address where you want your products to be shipped.
Your chosen product must be available for shipping to your pin code else purse.io may not process your order. Because eventually, someone has to order through purse.io using your wish list.
And if the items are not available for your pin code, he may not be able to place the order.
Now, the next step is to get the share link for your wish list.
Through your share link, anyone can access and see what is available on your wish list, so that he can complete your wish list order.
Steps To Get The Share Link And Process Order At Purse.io
Click on find a wish list, go to your list and click on share icon. A popup will appear with your share link.
Copy the link and paste it into the search bar at purse.io. As stated above, purse.io will read your wishlist and you will get your Wishlist items there if it is available.
Now you can increase or decrease the discount by moving the slider shown on the page. By default, it will give maximum 10% discount on your first order, and you might not get an option to increase your discount.
Just review the order and place it. Please mark that there is a purse fee depending on the order amount.
There is also some minimum amount of order required to place the order in purse.io (I believe it is Rs 500). I tried adding a product worth Rs. 350 and the order was canceled due to a low value of the product.
I believe this is done because minimum order value at Amazon for free shipping is Rs.499 or more for some products.
Purse.io Processing Order Steps
Once you click on place order, purse.io will process your order and your order will be placed in queue till it finds a buyer.
Purse.io is a place, which answers the question – Does Amazon India accept Bitcoin payment.
To add Bitcoins from your Bitcoin wallet, you can click on the wallet and scan the barcode from your Bitcoin wallet or write the address to send your Bitcoins to purse.io wallet.
There would be a charge of almost 20-25% to transfer money from your Bitcoin wallet.
I had close to $26 (0.00334 BTC) in my Bitcoin wallet which I transferred and received only $21.1 (0.0027 BTC).
To view your order status, you can click on my order tab.
