Pay with Bitcoin

Bitcoin is a digital currency that allows quick and secure online payments. We partnered with Coinbase, a Bitcoin platform, to enable Bitcoin as a form of payment on AAAwave.com. Coinbase is a Bitcoin wallet that allows consumers to buy, sell, send, and receive Bitcoins.

If you are already a Bitcoin user and would like to place an order using this form of payment, select the Pay with Bitcoin under the Payment Information section of our checkout page. After you verify your order information, click Submit Order Now and complete your transaction using your Coinbase account or Bitcoin address. Orders paid with Bitcoin cannot be combined with any other form of payment except AAAwave.com gift cards, in-store credit, rewards, and/or coupons. 

Unfortunately, Bitcoin payments are not yet accepted through our Mobile website. However, the Pay with Bitcoin option is now available for AAAwave international customers.

Frequently Asked Questions


What is a Bitcoin?

Bitcoin is the first form of decentralized (meaning it is not controlled by any organization or government) digital currency that can be exchanged from peer to peer for goods and services. Bitcoins are designed around the idea of using cryptography to control the creation and transfer of money, rather than relying on central authorities.

There is a limited number of Bitcoins in circulation and new Bitcoins are created at a predictable and decreasing rate. A fixed number of Bitcoins means they are a commodity whose worth is determined by supply and demand (similar to stocks).



How do you get a Bitcoin?

Bitcoins are “mined” through a process where specialized computers search algorithms to solve difficult mathematical problems. Every time they find a solution, a Bitcoin is generated. You can earn Bitcoin through “mining,” accepting them as payment for goods or services, or purchasing them at a Bitcoin exchange.



What are the benefits of Bitcoin?

These are just a few benefits Bitcoin offers over traditional payment options:

  • Ability to send and receive any amount of money instantly, anywhere, and at any time.
  • Full control of your money. Bitcoin can be managed directly from your Bitcoin wallet.
  • Full control of transactions. With Bitcoin, you control all your transactions. No one can process unwanted or unnoticed charges.
  • Secure transactions. You are not required to provide sensitive or personal information with Bitcoin.

     

What is a Bitcoin Wallet?

A Bitcoin wallet is a digital wallet that stores your Bitcoin balance. A Bitcoin wallet contains your public address and private key, allowing you to buy, sell, exchange, and trade Bitcoins online and offline. Bitcoin.org describes a wallet like an email account: it stores information (Bitcoin) and allows you to send and receive information.



Is Bitcoin Secure?

Bitcoins have not yet been compromised. Bitcoin has a dedicated team improving security and safety for users. According to Bitcoin.org, It is not possible to create Bitcoin without mining, spend Bitcoin that belong to other users, or corrupt the network. For more information, please visit the Bitcoin FAQ.
