@Steemgiftcards Removes the Guesswork

It's now easier than ever to figure out how to spend your steem and steem dollars. STEEM.CARDS now offers eGift and gift cards from VISA® and some of the top retail brands such as Amazon & Best Buy

     

which can all be purchased using steem, steem dollars, bitcoin, and litecoin. 

How it works

  1. Go to Steem.Cards (it is recommended that you log in to steemconnect.com before shopping).
  2. Choose your product(s).
  3. Go to the cart to checkout.
  4. If you chose a plastic Visa gift card, a shipping address is required.
  5. Choose payment method (steem/sbd, bitcoin, or litecoin).
  6. Upon choosing steem/sbd, you will be forwarded to steemconnect.com to finalize your payment.
  7. Upon choosing bitcoin or litecoin, a pop up window will allow you to finalize your payment.


After you have successfully made your purchase, all orders will be fulfilled by Blackhawk Networks

What To Look Forward To?

Steem.Cards is an old idea but a new project. We are starting out with about 20 items in our store and will expand our selections daily. I would like to see 100 items for sale by the end of Feburary 2018.Currently we are utilizing an api approved by Black Hawk networks on the back end. We are working on a full api integration by April 2018.

This project is made possible by following @adept's tutorial on adding steem payment options to any Shopify store.

Resteemed. I also just bought a $100 amazon card.

You should mention there is aa 10% markup in the price of cards.
You're not consistent with how you list values in the drop downs
so one of them is 50, one is 100.00, and one is $500.00
I made a purchase
it's unclear if that's going to email me a card or mail me one.

Please get me some answers and I'll make a separate post about this service.

Thank You @aggroed We are currently working to make the necessary updates and improvements.

these cards are VCC or plastic cards

·
56
  ·  last month

So how is with that omni cards. I am looking for an anonymous steem debit card, more than gift card.

·
49
  ·  last month

I would agree @aggroed, the card fee needs to be clearer on the site...although I have to say, $7.95 for a $500 Visa pre-paid card would be a lot cheaper than the 10% or so in fees it would likely take to convert the SBD/STEEM into fiat, given what I believe is a fairly convoluted process to get there now you know. Also...does the fee increase with value of the card? Is there a difference between the cost of putting $25 on the card as opposed to $100? I'm asking you 'cause you've already went through the checkout process. If I'm not understanding something correctly, please enlighten me.

·
·

Looks like it's a 10% fee

·
·
50
  ·  last month

The fee is a flat 10% on all store brand cards. $7.95 USD and standard shipping are the only fees asssociated with the Visa Prepaid card as it has to be printed.

·
·
·
49
  ·  last month

Ok...so NO 10% fee on the Visa Cards? Just the $7.95 +shipping fees on those?

·
·
·
·
50
  ·  last month

Precisely

·
·
·
51
  ·  last month

@steemgiftcards Is this card rechargable or do you have to order a new Visa card the next time?

·
·
53
  ·  last month

totally agree

·
50
  ·  last month

Thanks for the feedback
The orders are fulfilled by Blackhawk Networks so you can expect an email from any of one of their subsidiaries (GiftCardMall, GiftCards, OmniCards)
As far as the aesthetics concerning value symbols, I will have that cleaned up.

Now for the part everyone wants to know about. Yes there is a 10% per associated with using our service. When utilizing the api, Steem is converted to USD via BTC and there is a fee associated with that. In an effort to speed up the process, we are accepting unconfirmed btc transactions which requires mining fees. 10% won't always cover the full amount.

·

any ability to switch to ltc? or bitcoin cash.

·
·
·
50
  ·  last month

That would be contingent on Blackhawk Networks as they are are ones facilitating. We are definitely pushing toward a very little to no fee at all, but that only comes after we demonstrate an ability to market and handle volume.

Super interesting. In general this effort is helpful for those of us who still communicate with friends who are mostly not on steemit or in crypto. These types of initiatives help our community over all. I look forward to future developments, using this in the future, and sharing those views. Til then just sharing this info is a big help to us all. Thank yous!

Great to see. Having more conversations with non steemit friends. This helps the dialogue.

SBD is at around $7.00 USD
Your website is asking me to pay 15,742 SBD for a $100.00 e-GIFTcard.
That's thousands... not tens.
What's the deal?

55

This idea is gonna change some things for me. Definitely helps me prove how lucrative some earnest interaction can be.

$9.95 processing fee is higher. Also, it's not showing the total in STEEM instead it is showing in Dollar.

We are exploring the options of expanding beyond the United States. We will know by the summer time if that is a viable option.

If it will be possible, you could add gift cards to the UK version of Amazon.

Whats the card use for? Haven't heard about it before

·
66
  ·  last month

If you purchase the VISA gift card then it can be used anywhere VISA debit cards are accepted. If you purchase an eGift Card, they can be used only at that retailer.

50
  ·  last month

That's awesome, I have been a little anxious and confused by the prospect of trying to convert STEEM into something useful, I am sure it is a problem for other people too. This will help build the whole platform!

52
  ·  last month

So I can now buy at Amazon anything I want to with that card?

·
66
  ·  last month

You can buy an amazon.com eGift card to use at Amazon.com

55

Fantastic work!! Congratulations to @steemgiftcards!! Is only for Amazon.com or also for Amazon.it for example?

·

amazon.com is just an example. There are several more items available at steem.cards

Ok @xtrodinarypilot, Thanks a lot for the answer 👍🏼

66

This is great!!! I would be very interested in a reloadable card!!!!

·
53
  ·  last month

A reloadable card would be most ideal. Instead of waiting for gift cards to be delivered which could take some time depending on where you live. More gamechanging in the crypto space keep popping up. Avoiding exchanging to fiat is my #1 goal these cards would definately help.

·
·
66
  ·  last month

I agree, not using fiat would be ideal but my goal is to attract non-crypto users to the crypto space,

@steemgiftcards great project. This is great development for all steemians. I wish all the luck to you guys. You guys are putting lot of effort to make lives of steemians easier. Thanks. M sure many more features will be added to this in near future. Looking forward to it.

Is the Visa card a physical one that is mailed to you or a digital card? Would like to be able to use it at the grocery store or for gas.

It works, and very well. Was a slight delay between initial transaction and receiving the card, but all in all a pleasant experience. Unfortunately now I'm going to have to eat a lot of quips about Monopoly money, but luckily, so are my friends😝

That's interesting. With this feature i may now be able to buy stuff from Amazon.com without the need of having an international Debit Card or Credit Card. At the same time it makes the SBD that i earned usable.

Welll this is a good idea but do anyone knows how scammers work regarding Gift Card and the likes... Thou I'm interested but I don't think this idea would work for long cuz it is another opportunity for scammer to scam

Hello @steemgiftcards. I visited your site and, I have to say, I am extremely interested in this. I do have a few questions though. It appears as though the Vias Pre-paid acrd converts the SBD/STEEM to USD. This is GREAT!!!!(not that I plan to chnge anything at the moment, but I will be taking some out from time to time to convert to USD) Can the SBD/STEEM be sent for payment directly from the wallet here or will there be a need for a 3rd party wallet in order to complete a transaction with you? Also, can the Visa pre-paid cards purchased from you be reloaded on your site? Or are they one use cards that cannot be reloaded? I am wondering 'cause the process I am see for converting SBD?STEEM to USD is that you need a 3rd party wallet to send the SBD/STEEM to from here, an exchange account to convert the crypto to BTC and then a
Coinbase wallet to finally turn the BTC into USD in the bank. Is this correct? 'Cause, if it is, your store would save me a boat load in fees.

·

At the moment the cards cannot be reloaded. It's a feature that requires that certain banking standards are met which are working on. There is a reloadable card in the works.

·
·
49
  ·  last month

Ok. Thank you for the reply. So there is a 10% fee on top of the card cost, which is $7.95 correct?

56
  ·  last month

I did a post about this card about a month ago. I was actually shocked to see it existed and had to write about once I found out about it.

I think it is a grand idea but for one thing.... I HODL!
At this point in my Steemian evolution I could nmot imagine parting with even ONE of my SBD's. I am sure the whales though are going to love this.

Great coverage of the card. Much better than my post was.

I think it's more than fair for the amount of streamlining it does in converting Steem to tangible goods and services.
