Bitcoin Payments in Retail

Are payouts from my BitBucks app possible anytime and anywhere?

Yes! You can withdraw your desired balance from the BitBucks App to another Bitcoin Wallet at any time. Please keep in mind that besides the normal costs for blockchain transactions, we at BitBucks also charge a 2% fee for payouts.

Are there any fees for payments with BitBucks?

No! All payments within the BitBucks app are completely free and can be made in seconds.

Doesn't Bitcoins' price rises also mean higher tax expenses for me?

Not at all! If you would like to exchange Bitcoin for i.e. Euro, you only pay taxes on the profit achieved by the price increase. And to be honest, paying taxes on profits doesn't sound that bad, does it?

How can I convert my earned Bitcoins to another currency?

Herefore the credit from the BitBucks app has to be transferred to another Bitcoin Wallet, with which the bitcoin amount can be converted into your desired currency at a so-called exchange market.

How do I pay with the BitBucks app?

It's simple! With the payment function of the app you can pay instantly and easily in Bitcoin. Within a second the amount is credited to the BitBucks account of the recipient.

How do I top-up Bitcoin to my BitBucks Wallet?

For this you need a second Bitcoin Wallet next to the BitBucks App: We recommend the Blue Wallet or Electrum where you can store your Bitcoin credit. Using the top-up function in the BitBucks app, you can then simply transfer Bitcoin to your BitBucks account by entering the Bitcoin address.

How do payments work with BitBucks?

Payments within the Bitcoin Wallet of BitBucks can be made to all valid telephone numbers. Since the transactions are executed outside the blockchain - offchain - even smaller amounts can be processed in BitBucks within a second.

Isn't the Bitcoin price too volatile and therefore a risk for me as a merchant? 

If you sell your Bitcoin on the same day at the end-of-day price, the volatility of the Bitcoin price hardly plays a role for you as a merchant. In addition, due to the pending halving and the deflationary character of Bitcoin, the price is expected to stabilize over time anyway.

Is there a list of all transactions within the BitBucks app?

For all bookings within the BitBucks App an overview can be created monthly as PDF to ensure a smoothly tax accounting.

What do I need to accept BitBucks in my store?

All you need is the BitBucks app on your smartphone and a QR code attached to it next to the cashier. During the payment process the customer scans this QR code with his Bitcoin wallet, enters the required amount and within a second the payment is received on your mobile phone.

What does a payment with BitBucks cost me as a merchant?

Top-ups and pay-outs are free of charge for merchants who use the BitBucks app. Payments within the wallet are charged a transaction fee of one percent. In comparison, payments by credit card in Germany usually cost merchants between two and four percent (excluding fees for card terminal providers) and are therefore much more expensive.

What is BitBucks?

BitBucks Wallet is a mobile app for Android and iOS that enables you to pay with Bitcoin instantly and in addition to store your BTC savely in your Bitcoin Wallet.
