How to transfer: Bitcoin to Amazon

After reaching the point that we want to transfer some money out of the cryptocurrencies, we didn’t know how to exchange Bitcoin to Amazon?

It was easy to buy Bitcoin, but to sell Bitcoin without paying high fees in a safe way was complicated … until we found the solution from Coinimal to transfer Bitcoin to PayPal. After successfully converting BTC into PayPal money, we thought we will try to do the same thing but with Amazon via Coinimal!

So, keep on reading for the quick way to convert Bitcoin to Amazon Gift Card:

Step-by-Step Guide: Bitcoin to Amazon (over Coinimal)

Register

First, you need to register here. Free 5€ await you for signing up there.

Sell Cryptocoins

The second thing you need to do is to go to the ‘Sell’-Page.
Here you simply choose the cryptocurrency you want to exchange – Bitcoin, Ethereum or NXTcoin. We choose Bitcoin.

Choose Amazon Gift Code

And on the same page you need to choose one of the payout providers: Amazon Giftcard, Skrill, NETELLER, PayPal or SEPA – we chose Amazon Giftcard.

Now you need to decide how much you want to spend – in our case we went for 0.132 BTC, (or 50.03€).

Then hit ‘Next Step’.

Choose Payout Method

Now you need to choose Amazon Gift card as your payout method. We don’t really know, why they make you choose two times the same thing, but whatever, as long as it works, it’s good for us.

Choose the payout method

Then press on ‘Next Step’.

Payment Info

This page contains just information about how the trade will go on. Read it if you want and then go to the next page.

Choose Refund Address

Now you are on the Refund Address page. Here you need to enter your Bitcoin Wallet Address, where a refund will be made if the transaction somehow fails. In our case the transaction was successful, so there is no much more to say.

Select a Refund Address

Finalizing the Bitcoin to PayPal Order

This is the final step before you convert your Bitcoin into an Amazon Giftcard. On this page, you can see the new Current Price (take note, the Bitcoin Price is continually changing, this way they are offering you the most recent price.), Sell Amount (what you are selling), you receive (the amount you will receive in Amazon Giftcode). It’s interesting to say, that here unlike PayPal there is no fee.

Summary on how to exchange Bitcoin to PayPal

Bitcoin to PayPal Fee Calculations

The Bitcoin price in EUR at the moment of selling was: 381€.
Coinimal offered us: 378.98€.
This means an exchange fee of 1 – 378.98/381 = 0.5%

The good thing is, that there is no fee like there was in PayPal.

So if you like us buy many things out of Amazon, then we highly recommend using this as a way to get your money out of Bitcoin!
