    I don't think you have to worry about bitcoins right now. One bitcoin equals $475.32.

    How about moneypak cards? You buy them at Walmart or wherever for a couple bucks and then just submit the code on the card for payment?

    I'm a fan of Bitcoin and own a few. I would just accept Bitcoin and see what happens. It doesn't cost anything to accept them and it cost's 1% to transfer to cash using www.coinbase.com.

    I think the last time I heard a quote (7-8 months ago) 1 bitcoin was like 2000 bucks. That's why I looked it up.

    Not sure how it all works, That's why I'm staying the hell away from it. Plus it seems volatile.

    BItpay is good too. I believe there is a "merchant" tab somewhere in the coinbase webpage that let you add a link but I don't think they have a built in addon for the forum..
