The alt-coin world has arrived! Excited about this I bought some Bitcoins and Litecoins. It was a very difficult and stressful experience requiring me to trust software, people and websites I’d never previously heard of.
As it happened the whole process went OK but it was a heck of a learning curve. I figured that there must be a lot of people out there in the UK who’d love to own some but weren’t willing to take a risk with their ‘FIAT’ currency in order to obtain some virtual currency. So I set up Bitcoin Gift Vouchers with the primary goal being to make it very easy, safe and secure for people to buy some Bitcoins for themselves. The site in fact allows them to buy Bitcoin using PayPal as a means to make payment which inevitably gives the buyer a massive amount of protection. But it puts the seller (Aetherweb) in a risky position if the process to purchase is not extremely carefully designed and implemented.
Thus far all sales have been faultless and we’ve experienced zero unexpected chargebacks.
This was our first responsive, retina ready site launch. It was also our first all SSL site.
