How to pay with Bitcoin
Paying with Bitcoin permits for an effortless, secure and private way for you to send us a payment, without any middle fellows or banks. Bitcoin is an internet currency that uses secure lines of code to ensure that they cannot be manipulated in the way banks manipulate hard currency. It has led to a free and decentralized currency available to anyone and everyone worldwide with internet access.
There are many advantages of using Bitcoin over traditional payment methods. For example, using Bitcoin makes it lighter and safer to send money across the net, as there are no third-parties that incur their own costs.
Secondly, the code or “block chain” that is linked to the payment not only makes it secure, but also anonymous, making it utterly hard for third parties and government agencies to poke their nose where it is not desired.

Making a payment to Zamnesia using Bitcoin
To make a payment to Zamnesia using Bitcoin you will need to have a Bitcoin Wallet that contains some of the currency.
A Bitcoin wallet is a way to lightly manage your Bitcoins, providing you a user friendly interface to buy, send and receive them.
To give you an example, we will demonstrate you how to set up a wallet and send payments using Electrum , an international Bitcoin Wallet.
Setting up a Wallet
1. Very first, go to https://electrum.org/#download. You will be able to download Electrum. This is an effortless program to transfer Bitcoins with.
Two. You will be able to create a fresh wallet:
Three. Make sure you note your ‘Generation seed’. This way you can recover your wallet even when your computer fails or crashes. Don’t ever share this with others!
Sending Your Payment to Zamnesia
Now that you have a Bitcoin Wallet, we will demonstrate you how to send us a payment.
1. On the checkout screen of your order with Zamnesia you will be introduced with all your possible payment options. Select “Bitcoin” to proceed with a Bitcoin payment.
Two. You will now be taken to the payment information screen. It displays all the information you need to send off your payment to us! (Note: Do not click the “Pay with Bitcoin” button if you have an online wallet).
The information you will need is:
- The Zamnesia Bitcoin address
- The payment amount
- The order number
Trio. Open up your Bitcoin Wallet.
Four. Attention: Switch to BTC and not mBTC (Devices – Preferences – Appearance: Base unit: BTC)
Five. Click on the “Send Money” button. You should now see a screen like this.
On this screen, copy and paste the Zamnesia Bitcoin address in the “To” section, the amount to be paid in the “Amount” section and the Order Number into the “Message” section. (Please note: the Bitcoin address shown in this photo is just an example, do not use it).
Now click on Send Money to send us your payment. We will then process your order as normal and get your items out to you ASAP.
Of course, if you are fresh to Bitcoin, then there is a very good chance that you do not own any! In this situation, you can spend real money to buy Bitcoin. For example if you set up a wallet with the example online wallet we showcased (Electrum), you can buy Bitcoins directly from them to deposit into your wallet.
