Auto ID verification for traders: verify in 5 minutes!
<h2><span>Verifying your identity does not have to be a frustrating experience, so we made sure that our traders can go through the whole process in just five minutes.</span></h2>

<p><span>We’re speaking of what essentially is a first tier verification, which means a full one will be required at times when the user intends to exceed Tier I limits.</span></p>
<p><span>However, for 90% of our traders, Tier I is enough to satisfy their daily needs: any eligible user who verifies himself on this level will be able to trade cryptocurrencies with fiat with a <b>€</b><b>1,000 limit per day </b>up to €5000 using their SEPA bank account or Klarna (different limits apply to mobile purchases).</span></p>
<p><span>Traders are also complemented with a renewed user interface which is now much more convenient and pleasant to eye.</span></p>

How To Spend Cryptocurrencies For Things You Want
<h2><span>Every cryptocurrency or token out there has a purpose, some predetermined use case that makes it useful in the hands of its holder.&nbsp;</span></h2>
<p><img class=”aligncenter size-full wp-image-4747″ src=”” alt=”buy anything with crypto with gift cards” width=”2468″ height=”1290″ srcset=” 2468w,×78.png 150w,×157.png 300w,×401.png 768w,×535.png 1024w,×648.png 1240w,×450.png 860w,×355.png 680w,×261.png 500w,×209.png 400w,×105.png 200w,×26.png 50w” sizes=”(max-width: 2468px) 100vw, 2468px”></p>
<p><span>For example, the king of all virtual assets Bitcoin is now getting appreciation as a hedge against fiat currency inflation and acts as an alternative store of value to gold. Ether, the second most successful crypto by market cap, is used to fuel smart contracts and dapps on the Ethereum network.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>Usefulness is what seems to determine how valuable and demanded cryptocurrency can or should be.<b> But for most regular people, the value derives from the ability to spend it on everyday necessities.</b></span></p>
<p><span>At this moment, there are more than 8,800 cryptocurrencies created and used for various reasons. Most of them indeed cannot be spent on anything other than other cryptos on an exchange.&nbsp;&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>Good news is, in 2021, that fact no longer applies to coins sitting at the top of the crypto market food chain.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>If you know how (to be honest, it is almost effortless), <b>you can buy anything using crypto, </b>do it fast and without much of a hassle, whether you want to spend Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ether, Nano, TRON and few other popular currencies.</span></p>
<p><span>And by saying <i>anything</i>, it means <i>anything at all</i>.</span></p>
<h2><span>So how can I buy things with Bitcoin or other crypto assets?</span></h2>
<p><span>There are a few ways to go about spending Bitcoin and other coins, depending on a thing (or things) that you wish to buy.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><img class=”aligncenter size-full wp-image-4749″ src=”” alt=”buying gift cards on coingate” width=”1200″ height=”801″ srcset=” 1200w,×100.png 150w,×200.png 300w,×513.png 768w,×684.png 1024w,×574.png 860w,×454.png 680w,×334.png 500w,×267.png 400w,×134.png 200w,×33.png 50w” sizes=”(max-width: 1200px) 100vw, 1200px”></p>
<p><span>The first option is to rely on online shops that have a crypto payment option set up.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>Right now, there are thousands of merchants around the world that take various crypto assets for payments. Besides, they make themselves easy to find by listing their services on websites dedicated to a single purpose of listing and showcasing <span><a href=”;utm_medium=article&amp;utm_campaign=nativead_gift_cards&amp;utm_term=nativead_gift_cards” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener”>crypto-friendly merchants</a></span>.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>The process of paying with crypto at such stores is ultimately the same as you would spend Euros or Dollars with your credit card online: you select merchandise, go to checkout, make a payment and there’s that.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>However, most businesses that accept crypto payments come from niche industries like Adult, VPN or hosting services, and there’s a good chance that you’d like to buy something more desirable or necessary.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>Items like smartphones, computers, video games and everyday consumer goods naturally come to mind first.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>But, even though Bitcoin is already 12 years old, it’s still not that easy to find reliable first-hand sellers that would offer such an inventory for it. And, if you attempt to buy something with any other cryptocurrency or token, the task becomes borderline impossible.</span></p>
<p><span>Surely, there has to be something that we can do about that in 2021?&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>And you would be right to ask that question. As mentioned before, there <b>is another way to spend bitcoin and a bunch of other virtual assets for things that are not commonly sold for them</b>, and do so without leaving your comfort zone.</span></p>
<h2><span>Use gift cards to spend Bitcoin on anything &amp; everything</span></h2>
<p><img class=”aligncenter size-full wp-image-4750″ src=”” alt=”buy anything with crypto” width=”1200″ height=”801″ srcset=” 1200w,×100.png 150w,×200.png 300w,×513.png 768w,×684.png 1024w,×574.png 860w,×454.png 680w,×334.png 500w,×267.png 400w,×134.png 200w,×33.png 50w” sizes=”(max-width: 1200px) 100vw, 1200px”></p>
<p><span>While you cannot spend Bitcoin or other crypto assets directly on marketplaces like Amazon or eBay,<b> it is possible to buy Amazon or </b><b>other</b><b> gift cards with crypto instead.&nbsp;</b></span></p>
<p><span>And these two are just examples – today the range of gift cards accessible for cryptocurrencies are quite vast and available in most regions of the world, including Europe, the USA, Canada and several others.&nbsp;&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>This option is made possible by electronic gift card sellers such as <a href=”;utm_medium=article&amp;utm_campaign=nativead_gift_cards&amp;utm_term=nativead_gift_cards”>CoinGate</a>.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>As of now, the service offers 600+ gift cards and vouchers including giants Amazon, eBay, Google Play and Sony Playstation, essentially giving your cryptocurrencies that same purchasing power that your regular money in the pocket has.</span></p>
<p><span>Getting gift cards for cryptocurrencies is getting increasingly popular amongst crypto holders not only as a way to buy things for yourself.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>It is also proved useful when you need a quick gift for any occasion, or even transfer something of value abroad to your family instead of using costly money transfer services.</span></p>
<p><span>The numbers do not lie, and they agree. Since CoinGate opened its gift card retail service in July of 2020, the number of voucher sales have been increasing every month by at least 30%.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>But the sales truly skyrocketed right at the start of the year 2021 – compared to December, CoinGate sold 50% more gift cards in January, reaching a monthly average in just 15 days.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>It just shows how great the demand is for such a service and how useful people find it in their daily lives, which is one of the reasons why the company is expanding its service to the massive user base of India as of this moment.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>But is the service as easy to use as it sounds?&nbsp;</span></p>
<h2><span>Buying a gift card with Bitcoin (email delivery)</span></h2>
<p><span>Short answer: <i>yes</i>.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>First off, select any gift card that you want from <span><a href=”;utm_medium=article&amp;utm_campaign=nativead_gift_cards&amp;utm_term=nativead_gift_cards” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener”>CoinGate gift cards store</a></span>. There’s a search option to look for a specific card, or you can sort the inventory by voucher’s popularity, date added and available countries. Otherwise, try browsing the store by categories and see what it has to offer.</span></p>
<p><img class=”aligncenter size-full wp-image-4742″ src=”” alt=”coingate gift cards landing page” width=”1836″ height=”827″ srcset=” 1836w,×68.png 150w,×135.png 300w,×346.png 768w,×461.png 1024w,×559.png 1240w,×387.png 860w,×306.png 680w,×225.png 500w,×180.png 400w,×90.png 200w,×23.png 50w” sizes=”(max-width: 1836px) 100vw, 1836px”></p>
<p><span>When you find something that you like, simply select the gift card, enter the amount and add it to the cart.</span></p>
<p><img class=”aligncenter size-full wp-image-4743″ src=”” alt=”amazon gift cards coingate” width=”1068″ height=”733″ srcset=” 1068w,×103.png 150w,×206.png 300w,×527.png 768w,×703.png 1024w,×590.png 860w,×467.png 680w,×343.png 500w,×275.png 400w,×137.png 200w,×34.png 50w” sizes=”(max-width: 1068px) 100vw, 1068px”></p>
<p><span>Once on a checkout window, provide an email address. That’s where the gift card will be delivered.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>There’s also an option to send a gift card as a present to someone else’s email if that’s what you want to do.</span></p>
<p><img class=”aligncenter size-full wp-image-4443″ src=”” alt=”chekcout” width=”1300″ height=”873″ srcset=” 1300w,×101.png 150w,×201.png 300w,×516.png 768w,×688.png 1024w,×833.png 1240w,×578.png 860w,×457.png 680w,×336.png 500w,×269.png 400w,×134.png 200w,×34.png 50w” sizes=”(max-width: 1300px) 100vw, 1300px”></p>
<p><span>Right after you enter the email address, you will see several payment options to choose from. The service allows paying for vouchers with Bitcoin (BTC), Litecoin (LTC), Ethereum (ETH), XRP, Nano, Dai, Token (AVA), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), TRON or BitTorrent Token (BTT).&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><img class=”aligncenter size-full wp-image-4444″ src=”” alt=”Coingate payment currencies” width=”1077″ height=”466″ srcset=” 1077w,×65.png 150w,×130.png 300w,×332.png 768w,×443.png 1024w,×372.png 860w,×294.png 680w,×216.png 500w,×173.png 400w,×87.png 200w,×22.png 50w” sizes=”(max-width: 1077px) 100vw, 1077px”></p>
<p><span>The service also supports payments via Lightning Network for Bitcoin and Litecoin so you can save some money off of network fees as well.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span><img class=” wp-image-4445 alignleft” src=”” alt=”gift card invoice” width=”377″ height=”498″ srcset=” 644w,×150.png 114w,×300.png 227w,×660.png 500w,×528.png 400w,×264.png 200w,×66.png 50w” sizes=”(max-width: 377px) 100vw, 377px”>Once you click that “Pay with crypto” button, all there will be left to do is make a payment. Either scan the QR code with your mobile wallet or copy the address and send the exact amount of cryptocurrency to it that way.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>The best part is, gift cards are sent to you by email in minutes after the payment is made.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>This is it! It’s that easy to get a gift card that you want, and it doesn’t take more than 10 minutes to go through the whole process. Just make sure you always select the correct region before making a purchase.</span></p>
<p><span>If you’re not sure how to redeem gift cards for the service, no need to worry – instructions on how to do it can be found on your gift card’s description page.</span></p>
<p><span>Hopefully, you will use this knowledge to your advantage and treat yourself or someone close to you with something special while you’re at it. </span></p>
<p><span>Good luck!</span></p>

New sign-in option for making purchases is live
<h2><span>Crypto shoppers can now sign in via CoinGate before and during payment to access new, otherwise inaccessible features and benefits.</span></h2>
<p><img class=”aligncenter size-full wp-image-4724″ src=”” alt=”purcahser account for crypto shoppers” width=”2500″ height=”1307″ srcset=” 2500w,×78.jpg 150w,×157.jpg 300w,×402.jpg 768w,×535.jpg 1024w,×648.jpg 1240w,×450.jpg 860w,×356.jpg 680w,×261.jpg 500w,×209.jpg 400w,×105.jpg 200w,×26.jpg 50w” sizes=”(max-width: 2500px) 100vw, 2500px”></p>
<p><span>Until today, spending cryptocurrencies for goods and services via CoinGate payment option was rather simplistic – users’ journey ended with paying the invoice after the checkout window.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>But now, users can sign up for a CoinGate account or quickly log in with Google or Facebook credentials when making payments, which unlocks several new features.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>This is our first step towards uniting all of our products and services under one roof to establish a one-in-all account approach.</span></p>
<p><span>A new sign-in option is not mandatory but will greatly benefit anyone who decides to use it. <b><i>No KYC is required to reap the benefits.</i></b></span></p>
<p><span><b><i><img class=” wp-image-4725 alignright” src=”” alt=”purchaser log in option for facebook and google” width=”348″ height=”475″ srcset=” 515w,×150.png 110w,×300.png 220w,×683.png 500w,×546.png 400w,×273.png 200w,×68.png 50w” sizes=”(max-width: 348px) 100vw, 348px”></i></b></span></p>
<p><span><b>Signing in will allow to:</b></span></p>
<li><span>Save the purchase history;</span></li>
<li><span>Monitor invoice status;</span></li>
<li><span>Request &amp; track refunds;</span></li>
<li><span>Get special cashback offers;</span><b></b></li>
<li><span><b>Lift the service fee. (<i>COMING SOON!</i>)</b></span></li>
<p><span>Read on for a detailed explanation. Mind that these are just the initial functionalities which will be expanded further during later development stages.</span></p>
<h2><span>Interacting with the purchase dashboard&nbsp;</span></h2>
<p><img class=”aligncenter size-full wp-image-4729″ src=”” alt=”coingate purchaser account dashboard main” width=”1829″ height=”563″ srcset=” 1829w,×46.png 150w,×92.png 300w,×236.png 768w,×315.png 1024w,×382.png 1240w,×265.png 860w,×209.png 680w,×154.png 500w,×123.png 400w,×62.png 200w,×15.png 50w” sizes=”(max-width: 1829px) 100vw, 1829px”></p>
<p><span>Signed-in users can now navigate to <i>Purchases-&gt;Purchase History </i>menu section after accessing the invoice for the first time and see their entire history of purchases made via CoinGate.</span></p>
<p><span>The menu section also includes basic data about a merchant, date of purchase, time and status of payment, price, amount and additional information such as refund or cashback status and eligibility.</span></p>
<p><span>You also have an option to filter and export this data to .csv file by clicking the button “Export to .csv”.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>Further on, selecting any purchase order will redirect you to another page, where you can leave a rating for your merchant, access payment invoice link to view the receipt and, if eligible, request a refund in crypto or claim cashback reward for your purchase.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><img class=”aligncenter size-full wp-image-4730″ src=”” alt=”purchaser account merchant info” width=”1815″ height=”955″ srcset=” 1815w,×79.png 150w,×158.png 300w,×404.png 768w,×539.png 1024w,×652.png 1240w,×453.png 860w,×358.png 680w,×263.png 500w,×210.png 400w,×105.png 200w,×26.png 50w” sizes=”(max-width: 1815px) 100vw, 1815px”></p>
<h2><span>Special cashback offers</span></h2>
<p><span>When signed in, you will notice that some cryptocurrencies on the payment invoice will start offering a percentage of cashback rewards.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span><img class=”wp-image-4731 alignright” src=”” alt=”coingate cashbacks for shoppers” width=”326″ height=”539″ srcset=” 507w,×150.png 91w,×300.png 182w,×826.png 500w,×661.png 400w,×331.png 200w,×83.png 50w” sizes=”(max-width: 326px) 100vw, 326px”></span></p>
<p><span><b>These rewards will be offered exclusively to those users that log in before making a payment.&nbsp;</b></span></p>
<p><span>Note that cashback % and currencies for which it applies are not set in stone and will be adjusted regularly.</span></p>
<p><span>To receive a cashback reward, head to the <i>“Purchase History</i>” tab on the menu and select the already paid order eligible for a reward. Next, click the <i>“Request Cashback”</i> button.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>A new window will open where you will see a reward amount and a field for your cryptocurrency address to which the reward will be paid out.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>Enter your wallet address and click the<i> “Request Cashback” </i>button again. If you feel like it, take a second to leave feedback for your merchant as well or subscribe to CoinGate newsletter.</span></p>
<p><span>All rewards are paid out within 48 hours of the request but usually faster.&nbsp;</span></p>
<h2><span>Requesting refunds: when and how?</span></h2>
<p><span>If a particular order is selected, an option to request a refund will appear in those cases when it is eligible.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>Refunds can be initiated in a few cases.<b> For example:</b></span></p>
<p><img class=” wp-image-4732 alignleft” src=”” alt=”crypto refund request form coingate” width=”301″ height=”449″ srcset=” 600w,×150.png 101w,×300.png 201w,×746.png 500w,×597.png 400w,×298.png 200w,×75.png 50w” sizes=”(max-width: 301px) 100vw, 301px”></p>
<li aria-level=”1″><span>A user pays more than the invoice requested. If the threshold for a minimum refund amount is met and the order is already paid, the overpaid amount will be sent back to the user.</span></li>
<li aria-level=”1″><span>A user pays the requested amount or more, but the invoice gets cancelled by the user or expired. If the threshold for a minimum refund amount is met, the whole amount received by CoinGate will be sent back to the user.</span></li>
<li aria-level=”1″><span>A user pays less than the invoice requested and the user didn’t manage to transfer the missing amount until the invoice got expired/cancelled. In this case, the user can request a refund.</span></li>
<li aria-level=”1″><span>A user pays but an unexpected error occurs and the invoice expires or is cancelled. The user becomes eligible for a refund.</span></li>
<li aria-level=”1″><span>A user made a payment after the invoice expired or was cancelled. The user becomes eligible for a refund.</span></li>
<p><span>To request a refund, click on the selected purchase order and click the <i>“Request Refund”</i> button. Then, fill in your crypto address, contact email, add additional information if necessary and click the <i>“Request Refund”</i> button again.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>It usually takes no more than 48 hours or less to fulfil refund requests. Note that, in case of network congestion, CoinGate may apply a refund fee to cover miner fees.</span></p>
<h3><span>More updates are coming very soon</span></h3>
