paying in bitcoin, alpha-numerical address

Post by vpn_newbie » Tue Jul 24, 2018 3:37 pm

hello cryptostorm people,

So year is passing by, and I want to buy your service for another year.
I paid in bitcoin, and I want to do the same this year.
When I order on cryptostorm.is, i get a picture of qr code.
I do NOT get the alpha-numerical addres to pay to.

How do I get alpha-numerical address when I order?

Also, I still have like 2 weeks of current account, does it still works so I can buy new one year token today, and a one year plan starts when I first use new token?

Thank you

ok, it might be my English, so I'll ask in another manner,
how do I get alpha-numerical (you know, Dt543Feudhp5lndbn9lJD) address instead of qr code to pay for criptostorm's vpn service?

Thank you

@OP

1. You could use a service like WebQR to upload the QR code image to.

2. Yes, the countdown on the token activates on first use. If you don't use it, it will last for as long as Cryptostorm are providing VPN access.

I've had the exact same problem. Saved the QR code to a file, and WebQR just throws an error when attempting to read the image file.

I've tried opening link using the button on the page, my wallet launches, but nothing happens. There is no way that I am going to send my BTC to a dodgy wallet service. By not providing a proper address to send the money to, Bitpay is making it impossible for me to pay for your service.

For the life of me, I simply cannot understand why Bitpay does not/cannot provide a BTC address on the payment page. I guess I'll be looking for another VPN provider.

You can pay using an alphanumeric BTC address by using the altcoins☇CoinPayments option rather than using BitPay

Yea, just use CoinPayments for BTC.
Bitpay's BTC thing is weird, doesn't use wallet addresses like normal, it uses some new payment protocol they're trying to push.
That's why with BitPay, only the wallets listed at https://support.bitpay.com/hc/en-us/art ... ompatible- will work.
