    Can I use Bitcoin to pay for my order?
    At present, Bitcoin is currently suspended as a payment method. Due to the wild fluctuations in valuations at present, it is very difficult for merchants to capture correct amounts and is leading to hung transactions. Until our partner Coinify are able to find a solution, or the fluctuations subside, it will be on hold as a payment option.
    If the fluctuation is what's putting them off they have no business accepting any crypto really.

    How do buyer and seller agree a price with the fluctuations?

    In the not to distant past it's been known to drop up to 10% in an hour. On a 15k car, that's 1.5k.

    I guess they just use something like Preev.com to get the current market rate but obviously it's high risk taking payment in BTC. Anyone who's accepting it would believe in its future potential so would be willing to take that risk and looking at the long term outlook.
