Coincards on the Lightning Network:

Did you know, Coincards.ca was the first major Canadian Bitcoin site to enable Lightning Network Payments?

Coincards has been live on the Lightning Network since early 2018, and have processed many of our payments through the lightning network for both Gift Cards and Mobile Topups.

Coincards remains committed to the lightning network and recently upgraded our infrastructure to receive lightning network payments even faster and to ensure we continue to expand the number of gift cards available under our Instant delivery program when using Lightning.

’tis the season for giving!

Holiday Shopping can be daunting & time-consuming.  Giving gift cards is a fast, easy, and thoughtful way to shower those we love during the holiday season.  We are very happy to be able to facilitate this for our customers, new and old.

Please be mindful of our cut-off dates for physical orders.  In order to ensure that all physical gift card orders are delivered before Christmas, all orders must be received no later than December 1st, 2018.  This will allow us the necessary time to acquire and ship all orders.

All electronic gift card orders must be received no later than December 21st, 2018, to ensure delivery by Christmas Day.

Possible Canada Post Job Action – September 2018

Update 10/18/2018: The Canadian Union of Postal Workers has announced a 72-hour strike notice with job action commencing Monday, October 22nd, 2018. At this time job action seems to be planned to be rotating and while causing delays should not affect the ability of the delivery service. We will continue to offer Canada Post shipping options until such time that job action results in a stoppage of work. At that time, we will stop all mail shipments and remove the options again. 

Update 09/26/2018: At this time there has been no indication of Job action happening in the coming days. We have decided to reactivate Canada Post shipping options until such time that job action has been announced. At that time, we will stop all mail shipments and remove the options again.


At Coincards.ca we rely on Canada Post for all outbound shipments to our customers. We offer a wide range of shipping options from free letter mail delivery to next day priority services.

Unfortunately, due to the inability of Canada Post to reach an agreement with its workers, Canada Post is facing possible job action starting on Sept. 26, 2018. As a result, orders which are scheduled to ship might be delayed.

How this affects our customers:

May 2018 Feedback Summary and Comments

We are a small team at Coincards, but we are growing rapidly in order volume and the number of Canadians we get to help every day. Last week we asked our customers to provide us with some feedback so that we could make sure that our team’s best efforts are focused on moving in the right direction.

We received an overwhelming response rate, with 94.3% of responses being positive, but we really would like to hit 100% or as close to it as possible.

Order fulfillment is, of course, our main function and our #1 priority. Coincards is investing heavily in the coming months to making the ordering process as seamless as possible and we are very excited for the things we have planned.

In response to your feedback, we would like to present to you the “State of Coincards” report/post to let everyone know where we are at and where we will be focusing efforts.
