I bought Chinese food with Bitcoin! Well done Takeaway.com
Into Bitcoin since April 2013 I've finally made my first food purchase, and it was rather tasty. After selecting a nearby takeaway, adding a few things to basket, selecting Bitcoin, it directs to Bitpay and it works like a breeze, as it should! :) Just got asked to leave a review of the site and here is the link. x http://www.trustpilot.com/review/www.takeaway.com/536aabb60000640002888215
"Takeaway.com accepts bitcoins". But do they really?
Takeaway.com is a huge fast food chain online. They have local websites in allmost every country in Europe, such as pizza.be, pizza.fr etc. Tonight i went to buy a pizza, and it was pleasant surprise to see "bitcoin" next to cash, paypal etc. Boy was i wrong. When you click on bitcoin as a payment method, a bitpay.com window pops up giving you 15 minutes (!) to pay. I sent away the coins from bitstamp to takeaway.com address, but of course it took 1 hour to get 3 confirmations, and the pop up was long gone. Now i was left with the coins out of my wallet and no order confirmation from takeaway. I was puzzles by the fact how easy it can be to lose money with bitcoin and you don't even have someone to complain to. Customer service looked at me like i fell from the sky. "eh? bitcoin?" "please don't send strange links to websites as a proof of payments" was their reaction (by email, no support phone numbers on the website) when i sent the blockchain.info link. After much frustration and insisting finally some manager called me and said it is an "IT" error and they will deal with it on Monday. I am quiet sceptical, since i didn't get any reference number, and was just told something like "do you think a company like takeaway.com has nothing to do but to mess with your 24 USD"? but who knows. Of course it is far from an "IT error". They put a 15 minutes pop up window for a bitcoin payment every time. And if you don't get 3 confirmations till then? Say good bye to your money. It has vanished somewhere in the dark spaces of the net. https://blockchain.info/address/18fGtvCmR9RRWg2dnvjPkG8vC3iUtuThup
Just a reminder for those needing an excuse to eat pizza for Bitcoin Pizza Day tomorrow (22nd May), takeaway.com in the UK supports Bitcoin and allows you to pay for pizza (or other takeaways) with bitcoin at participating restaurants... Let's help support Bitcoin adoption and eat pizza! :D Disclaimer: not affiliated with website, just spreading the word
Another curry success funded by Bitcoin through takeaway.com
It's Saturday night, so we ordered some takeaway curry through takeaway.com, paying by bitcoin. Received a call from takeaway.com shortly after the order was placed, telling me that the restaurant was running out of tandoori chicken, and whether I wanted to replace that with something else. I just wish that just-eat will also start to accept bitcoin. If they do, then I have enough coins to supply me with curries for the rest of the year.
Just bought my first pizza's on Pizza.be (takeaway.com) with Bitcoin after I got (a part of) my refund back from Butterflylabs...!!!
After my friend helped me getting my refund back from one of my biggest and most expensive mistakes ever (I'm a student), I decided to buy us some Pizza with Bitcoin! I ordered a 600GH card back in January at the price of $2100. I lost a lot of money because of the wire transfer costs (wasn't that into Bitcoin yet, so was stupid enough to do it with a wire transfer and not just buy bitcoin) and made an even bigger mistake after upgrading to the 1TH card for $744 (yes, I did pay this with bitcoin). So now the $744 got refunded and the wire transfer is on its way... conclusion: stay away from BFL... http://imgur.com/2gjReSghttp://imgur.com/SgzENvk they were tasty!
TakeAway.com enables Bitcoin acceptance for +15.000 German and Dutch takeaways
Here is the article in Dutch, and [here](bit.ly/1cI2Gvm) is the google translation. Takeaway.com is about as big as Foodler. It also has smaller websites in Belgium, Denmark, France, Luxemburg and even Vietnam - so further Bitcoin-expansion is possible.
Not too sure if this is the right sub but - Just to let you guys know if you make an order via Bitcoin on takeaway.com and for some reason the order is cancelled(e.g the restaurant is closed/can't be contacted) ...takeaway.com WILL NOT give you your coins back, instead they ask for an IBAN number to refund the amount into a bank account. Am I alone in feeling this is a disgusting practice?
Dutch Eaters: Thuisbezorgd.com accepts bitcoin (owned by Takeaway.com)
http://www.thuisbezorgd.nl/ Scroll down lower to see all accepted payment methods. Bitcoin is also listed. This is a huge site processing thousands of food orders everyday. Although Bitcoin is not used very much in The Netherlands, it is helping exposing people to BTC. It is not the latest news anymore in The Netherlands, but I didn't see it referenced here anywhere, so I thought I post it.
Wanted to order in and pay in bitcoin. Got some "error message" and was asked to pay by other means. Bitpay shows a badly issued certificate when I go to their website (issued for cloudflare). Anyone ordered food recently successfully with bitcoin?
UK version of Takeaway.com/Thuizbezorgd now also accepts Bitcoin
After the Dutch, Belgian, French, and German versions of the site, the UK version of Takeaway.com now also seems to (finally) accept Bitcoin! This really is quite awesome and big news :) EDIT: Whoops! It was already on the frontpage, seems I overlooked it!
