Perhaps you’ve heard of “Gyft“, a service that allows consumers to purchase gift cards to popular retail locations with Bitcoin. Well another start-up is coming on the scene that aims to allow you to buy anything online with your Bitcoins. It’s called SnapCard, and the San Francisco-based company says their service “works on every website”.
ScapCard works as a bookmarklet. The end user makes the decision to purchase a product on the web, clicks the SnapCard bookmarklet, and makes a confirmation by clicking the “Add to SnapCard” button to purchase. Hitting the “Buy” button executes on the transaction, and SnapCard does the rest. The funding happens with a link-up to the user’s Coinbase account.
The company takes a cut of 2% on all transactions, and also allows users to track and view the status of their orders. It even works on eBay, though only on “Buy it Now” listings.
