I Need Help Getting Set-Up to Take Btc , PleaseSubmitted by pil45 on Fri, 03/21/2014 - 15:48
I am trying to get set-up to accept bitcoins as payment for my business. I am a tattooer. I will be travelling to Houston next weekend to work a big convention, and would like to be (possibly) the only one there taking cash,card,silver, or BTC.
I decided to try the wallet from Blockchain.info, since seeing it mentioned in the "Getting Started with Bitcoin" thread. I dont even know if thats a good one for me to have, just guessing about all this stuff.
SO, my main question is, is a wallet /wallet address all I need to accept Bitcoins?
And how does that transaction play out?
I assume I can find an app that will translate Dollar values to btc? Is there a recommended calculator?
1.A guy says he want to pay me in bitcoins.
2. I give him my wallet address?
3. wait for transaction to go through?
4. I can see his pmt in my wallet?
Is it that simple? I need a dummy's guide! haha...I am finally starting to feel old with this technology!
Any help is greatly appreciated., Thank you.
