How it Works
Using Bitplaza to make purchases with bitcoin is a very easy process. When you first launch the app, you are taken directly to the store where you can start shopping right away without needing to go through any lengthy registration or approval process.
In the store, you will find many popular items as you would in a general consumer retail environment like Walmart or Amazon. You can add items to your cart by tapping on the “Add to cart” button underneath a product listing.
If you would like to learn more about a product, you can tap on any product in the store and you are being taken to a product listing screen with a detailed description and additional pictures of the product.
You can shop for many different products based on a selected department by tapping on “Categories” and selecting a department from the drop down menu. You can also browse for items using the keyword search feature by navigating to “Product Search”.
There you can enter a specific brand, product or relating keywords and then you are being given a list of products to choose from based on your search results. If you’re looking to get in touch with customer support, you can contact them by phone or fill out a request form in the customer support section of the app.
You can also track a package in the app by tapping on the menu and selecting “Track A Package”. There you can enter your tracking number and then are given live results of your package’s whereabouts and estimated time & date of delivery.
Checking out with bitcoin is surprisingly easy with the Bitplaza app. All you have to do is tap on “View Cart” and then “Proceed to checkout” where you can enter your shipping details. Once you enter your shipping information, you then tap on “place order” where you will be given instructions to make payment with bitcoin.
You can either take a screenshot of the QR code that’s displayed or copy & paste the wallet ID which is also displayed. When you send the exact bitcoin amount in the instructions, the system in the app automatically recognizes the payment and takes you to a confirmation screen.
After making a purchase, you also receive a confirmation email with a tracking number for the package.
