Dear Mods, Please can you submit the following entry to this page:


"allows customers to buy & sell Bitcoin automatically using their UK bank account. All you need to provide is an email address and either your bitcoin wallet address (if buying) or your bank account details (if selling). For buying, they give you a unique reference code to include with your bank transfer. All future transfers that include this code will be automatically converted to Bitcoin and sent to you. You can therefore set up a regular standing order if desired. For selling, they give you a unique Bitcoin deposit address to send coins to. All future payments to this address will be automatically converted to GBP and sent to your UK bank account. They use the latest Bitstamp market price and aim to complete orders within 10 minutes. The fee is currently 5%."

Many thanks, John @

Upgrade links http → https

Many of the plain-http links on this page can and should be upgraded to https. Also, there appears to be at least one hardcoded link within the wiki; that should be replaced with a wikilink. I have been doing many such cleanups myself; check my edit history. But I can’t edit this page, because it’s protected.

Please fix. Thanks.
