Farewell and thanks for all our loyal customers!

10 months ago

Valued Bitok.com users!

 

We have been together for quite some time, and the experience has been terrific. We sincerely enjoy our work and the service we were trying to create for you.

 

Unfortunately, some things have to come to an end, and we regret to inform you that time has come for Bitok.com to send our last regards.

 

To remove all the unnecessary speculations right away, we reassure you, that we have not been hacked, have not gone bankrupt, nor bought by any other exchange. We simply feel, that we will not meet our projected goals with our current pace, and we have to let go now and suspend the services.

 

From this point on, depositing to Bitok.com will be locked and trading will stop. You may withdraw your balances using any available methods, and our website will be active until the last user does so.

 

Please do so soon, as methods for withdrawing will be gradually turned off, as we shut down the services, which will give you fewer options.  

 

We guarantee that any and all of user’s funds on our account will be returned. If you have any questions, feel free to ask at admin@bitok.com.

 

Sincerely,

Bitok.com team

Payment card withdrawals - now in two flavours!

on 30 Jun 2016 at 12:35

Recently we've added the instant card withdrawals - it's very nice to get money to your card as soon as you click "withdraw", for sure. Yet there was a downside - not every bank supports this type of payment, besides there are some limitations with regards to countries to which we can pay instantly.

Thus we've also added back our regular card withdrawals - feel free to use it when instant card withdrawal doesn't work for your card.

Pay with Bitcoin widget is added to merchant tools for all our customers to use

on 19 May 2016 at 08:00

We've added some new nice tool for those of our customers who want an easy way to get payments in BTC or any supported on Bitok.com fiat currency. It allows you quickly start accepting payments easily without spending too much time on integrations.

Starting using it on your e-commerce site is as easy as 1-2-3.

1. Set common parameters and prepare your site

  • Auto sell incoming merchant deposits checkbox tells the system if it should sell BTC at current price or keep them as BTC
  • Adding the script to your page is essentially copy-and-paste the code above into the <HEAD> section of a page where you want to collect payments.

Note: we suggest using SSL with our widget. This is a matter of yours and your customers' security.

2. Configure the widget for your items

  • Amount is the amount you want to get for your item.
  • Currency is the currency you want to get. The bitcoin amount will be calculated based on the immediate rate on Bitok.com at the time of the payment.
  • Item ID is a SKU or any other item id. It will be added to the transaction so you can distinguish deposits for different items.

3. Place the widget code next to the item you sell

Note: when you change the widget parameters from #2 the widget code is changing on-the-fly so you can configure as many widgets as you need. 

  • Copy & Paste the code above to the exact place on your page, where you want to display the Pay with BTC button.
  • Your customers will see a Pay with Bitcoin button, that will display the exact amount of BTC to send in order to pay that much of USD (or any other selected currency) that you've specified.

4. Incoming payments will be displayed in your profile

Green ones are payments that were sent in time and resulted in an agreed target amount.

Red ones are payments that are less than the needed target amount.

 

 

And you are all set :) Promote your page and collect bitcoins on your bitok.com account.
