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.
