Want to map domain name to wordpress, can I pay with bitcoin?

  1. I had heard that WordPress is now accepting bitcoin in the WordPress store, but are there other things you can pay for with bitcoin? I planned to pay wordpress to map a domain name here (once i pay for it, that is) but I only use bitcoin for online transactions.

    The blog I need help with is atlascreates.wordpress.com.

  2. I'm sorry but bitcoin cannot be used for purchases of domain mapping or premium theme upgrades at this time.

    Below are the only accepted means of payment.

    WordPress.com uses PayPal as the payment processor, and as such, can only accept payment from countries they support: https://www.paypal.com/worldwide/

    If for whatever reason, they have chosen to block payment from your country, you will not be able to purchase an upgrade here unless you have a source of payment outside of your country.

    In addition to major credit cards Mastercard, VISA, American Express, Discover, and PayPal https://www.paypal.com/worldwide/ WordPress.com can accept echecks and some debit cards.

    The debit card must have a VISA or Mastercard symbol on it, and should work just like a credit card when selecting the VISA or Mastercard option on the payment form, even though it's a debit card.

    More about echecks here:

  3. Any idea if/when WP plans on integrating bitcoin payment for their services?
