Please know that paying for nootropics is not the easiest of things. This is attributed to the fact that the FDA, MasterCard and Visa do not like such transactions and selling nootropics is placed in the same category as gambling, adult websites and debt collection services.
Bitcoin and other cryptocurrenices
Of course, as a nootropic store we accept all cryptocurrencies.
We also offer 10% discount on any payment with the cryptocurrencies (Bitcoin included). It will be automatically applied, once you hit 'Complete order' and will be redirected to our payment page.
This payment option is fully automated similar to card processing. You won't have to wait for any transfer details or for the payment confirmation from us.
Fees are also rather low usually as well.
Here is the full guide on how to make payments with cryptocurrencies:
1) Set up Bitcoin (or any altcoin) wallet. This can be done either online with any Bitcoin wallet service. Here's a short guide, on how to set up a wallet and fund it using a credit card.
The process to install a wallet and top it up using a credit card is quite simple and we have detailed instructions on how to do it. In most cases the customer gets their bitcoins within 1 - 2 hours.

After the customer has the bitcoins in their wallet, they can use it to pay for the invoice. Detailed instructions on how to do that are here: https://blog.coingate.com/2017/02/how-to-pay-bitcoin-invoice/
2) Proceed to checkout in the normal fashion. When finalizing your order choose Coingate as a payment option. And don't forget to hit 'Complete order' button.
3) You will be redirected to our payment page (serviced by the Coingate). You should see something like this before you.
This page includes all the information you will need for the transfer. The most important info is your total in the cryptocurrencies (calculated at the current rate), it is presented in the bold text and underlined.
Below that is the wallet you will need to make a transfer to. Each invoice will have new wallet address in it, do not pay to the wallet on the screenshot above. Please note that the transfer should be finished within the time limit. Otherwise your order will be cancelled and you will have to create it again.
4.1) If you have local wallet installed and running on your computer, just hit the 'Pay with Bitcoin Wallet' and you will be redirected to the wallet software.
4.2) If you have online wallet please visit your wallet and find the 'Transfer' option or something similar. Input the total and the wallet address that you've received back on the payment page.
4.3) If you have wallet app installed on your phone use the QR code on the payment page to transfer all the payment data.
5) Finalize the transfer process (it will depend on your software and wallet provider) and you are done. Our payment gateway will register your payment and mark your order as payed. Confirmation might be instant or take several hours, depending on how bitcoin network operates. You do not need to send us any confirmations, but you can do so just to make sure.
If you are not getting any confirmations from us after your payment for a day or two, please contact us, so we can check the payment status manually.
We do not recommend paying directly from the online wallet and Coinbase in particular.
To be fair, we recommend you to use online services only to buy bitcoins, but keep the funds in your personal wallet locally. There are two main reasons:
- If you are using online wallet, your money, essentially, are kept by the owners of the service. So if something happens to them or to their service you are likely to lose your money. There has been several such cases in the past; for instance, this one.
- Transfer time from the online wallets is usually longer. It may take in some cases even several hours before outbound transfer is confirmed by the online service. Our payment processing is set up to take this issue into account, but extremely long transfer times may still prevent you from paying.
As an addition, we are aware of several cases when Coinbase blocked wallets of people who have payed for nootropicts or other supplements. Better not use Coinbase.
Money transfer Services

1) Transferwise and Azimo are ‘person-to-account’ (or ‘account-to-account’) services. You have to make account to use these services, plus you have to provide more information about yourself.

Fees are the same as for WU and MG, however transfers are usually processed longer.
2) PaySend is a new card-to-card transfer service that uses Mastercard MoneySend and Visa Money Transfer services to transfer money between bank cards instantly and with really low fees.
