Using Cryptocurrency

There is a cryptocurrency payment system available on our checkout page called Coinbase Commerce which allows you to send us your payment in Bitcoin, Etherium, Bitcoin Cash or Litecoin.

If you have not used cryptocurrency before and are unsure on how to use this payment method – you can follow the steps within our guide below to set up a wallet with Coinbase and buy some cryptocurrency.

You don’t have to use a Coinbase wallet to send payment through the Coinbase Commerce process at checkout! If you already have a wallet set up elsewhere, you can use this.

How do I get started?

The first step is to create a Coinbase account. This will act as a ‘wallet’ for any cryptocurrency that you buy and allow you to send us payment for your order.

They have a great app, which you can download using these links:

Cylocybe - Download Coinbase - App Store Cylocybe - Download Coinbase App - Google Play

You will need to complete ID verification before you can use the account – this only takes a couple of minutes to complete and verify.

Connect your Card

After you have created your account, your next step will be to connect your Debit or Credit card. This makes the process immediate rather than connecting a bank account, which takes 1-3 days!

You’re now ready to buy some cryptocurrency! We will demonstrate how to buy Bitcoin, but the process is the same for any cryptocurrency that you choose.

Buying Bitcoin with the Coinbase App

Cylocybe - Buying Bitcoin Step 1

Click on ‘Accounts’ within the bottom navigation and then click on ‘Buy’

Cylocybe - Buying Bitcoin Step 2

Cylocybe - Buying Bitcoin Step 3

Note on this page, it will display a Coinbase fee – this amount will be taken from the cryptocurrency that you buy, so you will need to buy a bit more than your order total amount to cover all fees.
Check that all the details are correct and click the ‘Confirm Purchase’ button.
You will then have some cryptocurrency in your wallet!

How do I pay for my order?

At checkout on our website, select Coinbase Commerce as your payment method and then click on the ‘Proceed to Coinbase’ button.
This screen will then load, showing your order total:

1. Click on ‘Pay with Coinbase’
A new browser tab will open for you to log in
2. Enter your Coinbase account login details
A message will then appear telling you that you’re connected to Coinbase.
3. Click the ‘Send Payment’ button on the original browser window
Coinbase will advise you on how long your payment should take to process, it is normally up to 30 minutes.
You will get confirmation from us by email when we have received your payment.
We know cryptocurrency can seem very daunting if you have never used it before but hopefully this guide shows how simple the process is!
