10. How do I use Bitcoin to make this purchase? Note: If it's the first time you are using Bitcoin, there are some things you'll need to take care of first. And, these can take a few hours or days to be completed. (1) Set up a Bitcoin wallet on your smart phone (iPhone or Android). We are fans of Coinbase: https://www.coinbase.com/ (2) Connect your Bitcoin wallet to the bank account that has the US dollars you are going to buy Bitcoin with. (3) Transfer US dollars to your Bitcoin wallet. (4) Purchase Bitcoin via your Bitcoin wallet. (5) Select Bitcoin at checkout time on the www.thescarfboutique.com site. (6) From the smart phone Bitcoin wallet app, (a) Select Send (funds). (b) Click on QR code symbol. (c) Place the QR code square box on the www.thescarfboutique.com site inside the view finder that pops up on your smart phone to scan the QR code.---note: this way assumes you are using two devices. (7) From this point, the transaction goes through. You will receive notifications via email, etc. of what happened.
11. How do I control the timing of the notification to an individual that a gift card (a gift certificate) has been purchased for? Very simply, when you buy the gift certificate, and are prompted to enter 4 pieces of information (From, To, Email, Message), the email address that you provide needs to be yours, in this case. As soon as the purchase goes through, you will be sent the email that has this information plus the Gift Certificate code that will be entered when the gift certificate is being used by the intended recipient. You have the option of: (a) printing the email out and inserting it in a card or gift box that you will hand deliver or (b) forwarding the email to the recipient near or on the special day.
12. On checkout, I see that you ask, "Do you have a particular date you'd like us to send this?" What is this for? When the gift is for a particular date, like a birthday, anniversary or a holiday, a customer may want to have us send the item on a particular date so that the day it's received will be more apt to coincide with the event. This option is also very helpful should you wish to order ahead of time so that you don't have to think about it any longer. Note: we will do our best to send the package on or near the date you request. Note: The actual ship date, the shipping method used as well as courier effectiveness will influence the actual date received. Therefore, we can not guarantee a particular date of receipt.
