[ANN] Cryptofresh.com, proof-of-awesome BitShares store.
« on: January 20, 2015, 06:02:22 AM »

Cryptofresh.com is a proof-of-awesome BitShares store.

The store is live, t-shirts are here, the referral program is implemented,
and you can now pay with BitUSD, BitCNY, BitEUR, BitGOLD, and BitSILVER.


Sorry, we don't accept NuBits, BTC, and not even BTS. BitAssets only! :)



We are pleased to announce the release of our first T-Shirts @ cryptofresh.com!

With our new referral program, earn $2 BitUSD for every shirt you sell!

Importance of BitASSET adoption

The adoption and use of BitAssets in ecommerce helps establish them as our community's original products,
and this strengthens our case when it comes to potential intellectual property conflicts.
It's especially important for BitGOLD and BitUSD. So spread the word!



Your vote supports our further efforts!

wallet_approve provisional.bitscape - new!
wallet_approve media.bitscape


This project is a labor of love, along with everything else that we're working on, and we
are trying to turn it into a profitable enterprise which contributes back to the community.

Addendum

It's been a joy working on this payment gateway... that's coming from someone who's
priorly implemented Robokassa, Authorize.net, and Stripe payment gateways (grudgingly).

Reflecting on my experience, many benefits come to mind:

For customers
 - TITAN allows for very friendly interfaces
 - Pegged assets like BitUSD are as intuitive as it gets
 - DPOS makes transactions fast and painless
 - Practically no need for QR codes
 - Logins (not yet implemented) simplify repeat orders

For developers
 - Interfacing with BTS client is easy
 - No need for cumbersome currency conversions if pricing in fiat
 - Writing a BTS payment gateway from scratch
    was easier than implementing the Authorize.net API
 - No crazy chargeback/verification logic

For merchants
 - No chargebacks
 - Minimal collection of customer data
 - No 3rd party involved
 - Stable currency
 - Transfers are atomic and practically instant
 - Transaction fees for a $20 purchase are less than 0.1%
   where 2-5% fees are the industry standard
     For a $200 purchase, the fee is less than 0.01%

Needless to say, we're excited to explore the opportunities with this outlet!

Slick job on the site! Those are some great marketing points. I enjoyed being able to buy something tangible with bitGOLD and thought the checkout process was slick.

I'm pretty sure you're the first human in the history of the world to buy a T-Shirt with BitGOLD... :D

And you were the first person to purchase a T-Shirt from our store!

We'll have to hack together a framed digital LED 'BitGOLD' note for posterity.

Thanks for making it possible, 'scape crew. I tweeted about it too but I didn't link my referral ID... oops.  https://twitter.com/robrig0/status/557431664033275906

I actually don't know who got the cryptofresh twitter handle, but it looks to be someone from the community ;)

If someone is squatting that for us, please get in touch!

Wow. This is awesome!!

I'll pay $0.99 bitUSD for a 1440x900 background: http://cryptofresh.com/products/21

I want to use it as the wallpaper for my tutorial videos.

Update: And this one :) http://cryptofresh.com/products/15

Update2: Also, if you could do one for me with your store address as a watermark it'll be free advertising from the tutorial videos that are going up on whatisbitusd.com.

Ordered a shirt and I was able to submit my order with seconds to go (had to get bitUSD off the market). Any way to know if it went through?
