Coinimal’s New Service Enables Buying Anything On Amazon.de For Bitcoin
Coinimal, an Austrian bitcoin start-up, on Monday announced a unique new service. In addition to buying and selling crypto for fiat in eight different ways, customers can now receive Amazon.de vouchers in exchange for their bitcoins as well.
Users need to send bitcoins to Coinimal, and after just 1 to 3 blockchain confirmations they will receive their voucher code immediately by email. It is a standard Amazon.de voucher that tops up a user’s Amazon.de balance, which can be redeemed against purchases on the marketplace of Amazon.de. Customers can use the vouchers to pay for part or all of a purchase, and once redeemed the unspent balance of a voucher will remain as a credit on their Amazon.de account for next time.
“For the first time, this makes it possible to buy absolutely anything on Amazon.de for bitcoin – just as you would in a regular purchase, from inside your account, but with all the added advantages that crypto brings”, explains Coinimal Co-CEO Eric Demuth.
Moreover, no fees are charged on bitcoin transactions when buying Amazon vouchers, including processing fees. Also, no verification is required for this service. Users can purchase up to €5,000 of Amazon.de vouchers per day using just their email address.
“We can achieve this efficiency thanks to a direct partnership with Amazon.de”, added Co-CEO Paul Klanschek. “Because this initiative is 100 percent in direct cooperation with Amazon.de, these are original vouchers and there are no additional charges at all. This makes it incredibly fast and convenient to spend your bitcoins on Amazon.de”.
