How to Pay with Cryptocurrencies
Cryptocurrencies can be a simple, quick, and convenient way to pay for your order but it requires some set up so we wanted to make a tutorial on a few ways to purchase, store, and send the crypto for your order. Additionally to incentivize the use of Cryptocurrencies we give a 5% discount that is automatically applied when you use this method.
Currently, we accept Cardano (ADA), Bitcoin (BTC), Dogecoin (DOGE), Ethereum (ETH), Stellar Lumens (XLM), and XRP. If you want to use the Cryptocurrencies with the most affordable transaction fees we recommend using Cardano (ADA), Dogecoin (DOGE), Stellar Lumens (XLM), and XRP. Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) can have costly fees that negate any potential savings you get by using Crypto also the transactions times are slower with Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH)
Please Note: Stellar Lumens (XLM) and XRP both ask for a “Destination Tag” when sending. The addresses we use to accept payments for those Cryptocurrencies do not require that so you can just leave that blank.
Trust Wallet is a Cryptocurrency wallet that allows you hold your own private keys and you can purchase crypto through third-party services. There is a $50 minimum to purchase any Cryptocurrencies on the platform.
Step 1: Download the Trust Wallet app in the App Store or the Google Play Store
Step 2: Select which Cryptocurrency you would like to buy. We recommend Stellar Lumens (XLM) or XRP for the fastest and cheapest payments but keep in mind that XRP wallets require a minimum of 10 XRP. For this example, we will use Stellar Lumens (XLM).
Please Note: If Stellar Lumens (XLM) isn’t an option by default you will have to click the top right corner of the home page and find it in the list to turn it on.
Step 3: To purchase Stellar Lumens (XLM) click on the top right corner where it says buy and it will bring you to a menu that will allow you to select the amount you would like to purchase. Keep in mind that there is a minimum of a $50 purchase with the Trust Wallet App. After you select the amount it will bring you through a checkout process. Just follow the steps until everything is complete.
Step 4: Once you get the minimum amount of crypto required for your order click the send button from the Stellar Lumens (XLM) wallet menu. From there you can simply press the camera button which is to the right of the paste button to scan your order and it will automatically populate with the correct address and the correct amount of Stellar Lumens (XLM). After that hit next and send then your job is complete.
Please Note: The Network Fee for Stellar Lumens (XLM) is 0.001 XLM so it’s a fraction of a penny and the transaction goes through in seconds.
Crypto.com is a centralized cryptocurrency exchange that allows you to buy a wide variety of different cryptos. This exchange allows you to either pay using a Debit Card or you can set up a USD wallet and directly transfer funds from your bank account into Crypto.com for lower fees. They also have other products like debit cards that allow you to easily liquidate crypto assets and instantly spend it.
Step 1: Download the Crypto.com app in the App Store or the Google Play Store and complete the sign up process. It may take some time to have your account verified but once you are set up you can easily purchase cryptos.
Step 2: Select which Cryptocurrency you would like to buy. We recommend Stellar Lumens (XLM) or XRP for the fastest and cheapest payments. For this example, we will use Stellar Lumens (XLM).
Step 3: To purchase Stellar Lumens (XLM) click on the Buy XLM button and it will bring you to a menu that will allow you to select the amount and method in which you would like to purchase. After that just complete the checkout process and you will have the Stellar Lumens (XLM) in your account.
Step 4: Crypto.com makes you confirm wallets and whitelist them before you can send anything for security reasons so it’s best to send your crypto from a wallet like Trust to complete the payment but you can use whichever private crypto wallet you like. Once you have the correct amount of Stellar Lumens (XLM) you can send it by clicking the transfer button and then withdraw it to one of the private XLM wallets of your choice. After that just repeat step 4 mentioned above and your payment will be complete.
How to find your XLM address: If you didn‘t know how to find your Stellar Lumens (XLM) address in your private wallet you simply just need to go to the Trust app or whichever app you choose and hit the receive button. This will allow you to copy and paste your address into the Crypto.com app
