Keep Up To Date With SolidTrust Pay & Your Money!

Do you like receiving content from SolidTrust Pay on Facebook? Want to be kept in the loop about our shiny new payment options and contests? How about where you can spend your Bitcoins in Berlin on a Saturday night? Okay, maybe not the last question, but if you said yes to any of the above, we highly recommend that you keep reading!

To give you background, in a recent Facebook post, Mark Zuckerberg, the co-founder, chairman and executive officer of Facebook, wrote “one of our big focus areas for 2018 is making sure the time we all spend on Facebook is time well spent”, and that “we can feel more connected and less lonely, and that correlates with long-term measures of happiness and health.” So what does this mean? Well, as Zuckerberg stated, “the first changes you’ll see will be in News Feed, where you can expect to see more from your friends, family, and groups.” In return, these changes will lead to a decrease in content from businesses, brands, and media (i.e., SolidTrust Pay) from showing up in your timeline.

You may be asking how you can still receive content in your timeline from us – it’s really quite an easy fix. We have prepared two informative visual guides for your convenience. The first guide is for users who are using personal computers. The second guide is for users who are using tablets or smartphones. Each guide can be found respectively below.

The Why and How of Traveling with Bitcoin

 

 

Lonely girl with suitcase at country road dreaming about travel.

The best way to travel into 2018 is to travel with the future of payments. Bitcoin is fast becoming a more recognized payment option within the world of travel and for good reason! There are great advantages to using Bitcoin while traveling, here are some of the reasons you should think about trying it yourself for your future trips.

Currency Exchange
Changing currency is not only a hassle but can also become very expensive, especially if you need to change to more than one different currency throughout your trip. When using credit cards or international debit cards, fees can add up quickly.

By using local Bitcoin ATMs, it is easy to get the local currency needed for your trip wherever you are!

Reduce Risk of Fraud and Theft
We all know that everytime you use your credit card, you are running the risk of your personal information getting into the hands of the wrong people. Being in new places could heighten this risk. By avoiding using credit and debit cards, you are keeping your information more secure.

If you avoid bringing your cards for just this reason, that would mean that you are depending on cash. By relying on cold hard cash, the risk of being pickpocketed and left with nothing at all is at an all-time high.

Since Bitcoin cannot be stolen and can only be sent or exchanged by you, it is the safest currency to travel with.

Easy Time Through Border Control
Hate going through border control and telling them exactly how much money you are bringing with you on your trip? Skip that step too! Just know in advance where the local Bitcoin ATMs are at your destination, the only cash you will need is for that magazine and sandwich for the plane!

No More Cancelled Cards
A small but simply annoying step you can skip as well is that call to your credit card provider to let them know where you are going. Even worse is when you forget and are left with a useless card while on your trip! Bitcoin never suspends your funds.

 

So you’re convinced now, right? The question now is, how do I do it?

 

Here are some websites you should know about to not only help you while on your trip but also help you start planning it now!

 

Researching the Area
As mentioned before, the number one thing to know is where you will be able to pay using Bitcoin or where ATMs are to get the local currency you need.

Coinatmradar.com and Coinmap.org are here to help you with that. It is also suggested to check out local Facebook groups of Bitcoin users, that’s how you can get the inside scoop like that one taxi driver that will accept Bitcoin along with their personal number!

Booking Your Trip
There are now lots of options for booking your flight and hotel using Bitcoin. Use sites like Cheapair.com, Abitsky.com, and Btctrip.com to book your flights around the world. For hotel and flight combos, try Bitcoin.travel, Expedia.ca, and Fluege.com. Want less of the hotel feel and something a bit more cozy of a stay? Try 9flats.com, a vacation home and apartment rental service that has around 20% of their choices available to purchase through Bitcoin.

 

We here at SolidTrust Pay want to wish everyone a very happy New Year and hope that we can help you through any Bitcoin need that you have!

SolidTrust Pay Has a New Look!

solidtrust pay_logoAt SolidTrust Pay, we believe change is a good thing. We are happy to announce that our image will be undergoing a bit of a makeover – a shiny, modern one! We would like to remind you that, even though our image is changing, we will continue to offer you top quality service; certainly that will not be changing anytime soon.   

To prepare you for these exciting changes, here is a comprehensive list of what you can expect in the coming days and weeks at SolidTrust Pay:

A complete website facelift
Our image may be changing, but all of your account functions will remain the same after you have logged in – no surprises here!


A new logo
To bring our company into 2018, SolidTrust Pay will introduce a new logo. Again, we will have a different look, but our commitment to quality and customer satisfaction will remain the same.


Layout upgrades to our social media profiles
We will continue to bring you industry standard content, but it will be done so via pages with a more simplified and modern look. These changes will also extend to our blog logo, which will also be receiving ‘a new coat of paint’.

Contemporary banners and buttons
Merchants rejoice! We will also be updating our banners and buttons, which in turn will make your products and services that much more attractive to potential buyers.

If you’re in a panic and thinking “will I have to update any of my information?”, the answer is no! This transition will not require you to do anything. Our staff has been working hard to ensure that you will have a smooth and comfy ride over to our new interface.

We are excited about these changes and hope that you are too 🙂
