True Bites x Bitcoin

Bitcoin, Latest News -

We've partnered up with Coinbase Commerce to enable you to pay for your True Bites deliveries using bitcoin...

We like to try and keep our ears to the ground here at True Bites and, although some of us are definitely luddites at heart, we do try to keep up with the inevitable march of technology. After all, we want to stick around for a long time to come, which means we need to be open to the inevitable evolution of technology and ideas. We see it as our duty to evolve with our customers, and for our customers, and maybe we'll even attract a few new ones on the way, who knows? Anyway, we certainly don’t like to stand still.  

With that in mind, we are now accepting Bitcoin as a method of payment for your online orders. You still place your orders as usual on the store, but, in much the same way as PayPal, your payments are processed through a third party at checkout, in this case, Coinbase Commerce. We’re not changing anything else, so if you have no idea what we’re talking about, then don’t worry, everything you’re used to will remain as is. It’s just an added extra for anyone who wants it. 

How to pay using Bitcoin

Shop our online store and add items to your basket as usual. Once you've got everything you need head to your cart, choose your delivery date, and hit checkout. Login to your True Bites account (if you already have one), choose your delivery method, add your information to the checkout page and hit 'Continue to Payment'. Once you're here, you will see the various payment options: Credit card, PayPal, or Coinbase Commerce. Click the checkbox next to 'Coinbase Commernce', fill in your billing details and click 'Complete Order'. You will then be redirected to Coinbase Commerce where you can complete your payment using Bitcoin.

Is this the future of money? We have no idea, we're butchers, not bankers. Anyway, whatever it is, you can now buy bacon with bitcoin, so that's got to be a good thing, right?
