We’re delighted to announce that we now accept Bitcoin payments!
Yes, both new and existing customers can now pay for their VPS with Bitcoin, via BIPS, as well as our existing payment methods of PayPal and bank transfer.
In fact, we might as well go ahead and say it ….
That’s right, this is not just an additional method of payment we’re adding, we strongly believe in the ideals that Bitcoin represents. We want to live in a world where everyone has the freedom to be able to pay another individual or organisation without having banks or governments ruling over the transaction, and helping themselves to a cut via hidden fees that are far in excess of what is fair or reasonable.
In the same spirit, we’d also like to announce good news for European customers, which is that they now have the option to pay us via bank transfer from their local bank in EUR, PLN, CHF, NOK, SEK, DKK, HUF, GEL, RON, TRY, CZK or BGN, for a flat fee of only £0.50, with no extra charges from their bank or ours. This has been made possible because of Transferwise, a brilliant company who are also liberating ordinary people everywhere from the stranglehold that big banks have over international money transfers.
Of course, customers in the UK can pay us already via bank transfer without charge, and all customers regardless of where they live in the world can pay us via credit or debit card using PayPal if they prefer, whether they have a PayPal account or not. But we are always looking to increase the number of options available to our customers.
