Buy Vinyl Records with Bitcoin

What can I buy with my Bitcoin?

You can now buy vinyl from our online store using Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin and many more crypto currencies. Simply select Bitcoin instead of PayPal at checkout and you’ll be directed to Coingate to complete your transaction. Once payment is complete your records will be despatched as normal.

Wax Vinyl Records is one of only a handful of online record stores to accept cryptocurrency. We decided to provide this as a payment option to give music enthusiasts a way to spend their currency online, without having to worry about converting to fiat first.

How can I pay for my vinyl with Bitcoin?

Once you have entered your details at checkout, select Bitcoin as your payment option. You will then be directed to Coingate. On the Coingate payment page you’ll be given an address to send your payment to, with a 1-hour window to complete your payment. Once your payment is received then your order will be processed.

As highlighted on the payment page, do NOT send transactions directly from an exchange, use a wallet instead. This is to ensure that payment is made within the required timeframe, and ensures that the correct amount is sent, without factoring in fees from exchanges.
