Bittylicious Resumes Cash Payments


2014-06-24 16.30.21London, 24th June 2014. People in the UK can again buy Bitcoins with cash on Bittylicious after its service is resumed.

Bittylicious has relaunched a service which enables prospective buyers to purchase Bitcoins by handing over cash at any one of over 20,000 ZipZap locations in the country. The process is very simple, and any user that has had their identity documents verified by Bittylicious can obtain Bitcoins this way.

ZipZap has partnered with a new payment provider, Payzone, which provides the infrastructure which takes payments at many locations across the UK, serving almost every village.

Users simply need to choose how many Bitcoins they want, locate a local payment centre within the Bittylicious website and print off a payment slip to show to the cashier. Alternately, as long as the barcode is clearly available, they can show this to the cashier on a mobile device. The payment centres are typically small supermarkets and other local shops. Within a few minutes of the payment being taken, the Bitcoins are released into the buyer’s Bitcoin wallet.

In the near future, it will also be possible to buy a variety of altcoins, such as Litecoins, Feathercoins and Dogecoins, for cash using the Bittylicious service.

Bittylicious Expands into Europe


London, 12th March 2014. Bittylicious, the UK’s premier Bitcoin exchange, now accepts SEPA bank transfers as well as iDEAL and Mister Cash/Bancontact for Bitcoin purchases

Bittylicious has opened up three new payment methods, enabling European visitors to purchase Bitcoins and shortly other altcoins using bank transfers.

The main new service that Bittylicious offers is the ability to accept SEPA bank transfers. Virtually all bank accounts in the Eurozone that work in Euros can send SEPA bank transfers. Transfers are typically received in 24-48 hours and the Bitcoins are delivered upon receipt of these funds. Residents with a SEPA bank account are now able to make payments using the bank details provided when starting a new trade and the process is as streamlined as the existing UK bank account process.

Users in The Netherlands and users in Belgium can also use iDEAL and Mister Cash/Bancontact respectively. iDEAL is a unified bank transfer system for all major banks in The Netherlands, and Mister Cash/Bancontact is an irreversible debit card purchase system. Both payment methods are near instant; it only takes a few minutes after sending the funds for the Bitcoins to be released.

Bittylicious’s unique and simple interface makes it an attractive choice for users to get started with virtual currencies. By now offering payment methods for Eurozone residents, Bittylicious aims to make the process of buying Bitcoins much simpler.

Bittylicious, founded in early 2013, primarily offers Bitcoins and other virtual currencies for sale using online bank transfer and related payment methods. Having processed over £3 million of orders, Bittylicious is rapidly becoming the default choice when purchasing Bitcoins.
