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.

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:
