Coincards Holiday Reminder 2020

Each year, in order to assist our customer’s prep for the gift-giving season, we send out & post a Holiday Shipping Cutoff Schedule. This mainly pertains to Physical/Standard gift cards, however, it does outline cutoff & delivery times for Digital/Electronic gift cards as well.

Unfortunately, this year as we all know has posed many challenges for all businesses & services. One service that has been greatly impacted is Canada Post, for which we use primarily for shipments across Canada. They have seen a huge increase of letter mail and parcels, which has caused significant delays nationwide. Due to their increased volume, Canada Post is not adhering to their usual “delivery standards” for all of their postage options, included tracked packages like Expedited, Xpresspost & Priority.

Canada Post expects that with the holiday season fast approaching their parcel load is going to explode in numbers, which may cause even further delays. Therefore, we would like to take this time to reach out to all of you planning to use Coincards for gift giving this year, to request that you start planning your shopping list now, and get your orders in ASAP.

We will continue to adhere to our own delivery standards for all physical orders, which as it currently reads is 5-10 business days processing time. This means that your order will be shipped from either our BC office location or QC distribution center, within 5-10 business days of being received by Coincards. Please note that we do not consider an order “received” until it has the necessary number of confirmations on the blockchain. Should we encounter any issues in the meantime that would prevent us from providing this delivery standard, we will advise/post about this immediately.

In regards to Digital/Electronic gift cards, we request that all orders be “received” by December 23rd to allow us to process & deliver your items in time for your holiday celebrations. We will remain open during the holidays (including Christmas, Boxing Day & New Years) however we will be working at a reduced capacity during this period, and our delivery standard will be effected – we guarantee that all orders that are not “quick delivery” will be processed once daily at 10:00 am PST.

As always, please reach out to us via Support Ticket, Twitter, Facebook, WhatsApp & Telegram, should you have any questions or concerns regarding this announcement or anything else that we may assist you with?

Thank you very much, and Happy Shopping 🙂

The Coincards Team

Covid-19 Updates – Coincards remains open!

Hi there,

As you know, the last few weeks have been a very trying time for citizens across the world. I wanted to take a few moments and let you know that for the most part, it is still business as usual at Coincards.

Coincards has been running strong for almost 6 years, facing numerous challenges and roadblocks in an ever-changing cryptocurrency landscape. We know our users depend on us for their daily needs and I want to assure you that we are here to stay!

Coincards was built with a Customer Service First focus. Our response times are often immediate and we make every effort to be available through our Live Chat, Support Tickets, Facebook Messenger, Twitter and Text Message. This will not change.

Coincards is a 100% remote team. We have built this company with the future in mind, and as such we have built all of our processes to be able to operate from any location around the world.

With this in mind, there are some physical products that are currently unavailable due to changes made by the retailers and with the safety of our staff in mind. Affected products will show as “Out of Stock” temporarily until the environment changes and we are able to procure them again. This affects a very small number of products and for the time being, all other physical cards are available and every effort is being made to ship these out ASAP.

To serve you better, we have also ramped up our ability to serve essentials through the following steps in Canada:

Finally, I urge you to do your own research on the gift cards you are purchasing. Many stores, restaurants and non-essential businesses have made the decision to close their doors. Some provinces have enacted closures on ALL non-essential businesses. Please ensure that the gift card you are purchasing is for a store that is still open as we are unable to provide refunds/exchanges at this time.

Thank you for your continued support!

Mike Olthoff
CEO, Coincards.com

Spend Stablecoins (Dai & USDC) on Gift Cards!

What are Stablecoins?

Stablecoins are decentralized tokens which hold a stable value, usually tied to a traditional FIAT currency like the USD. These currencies are less volatile and not as subject to the speculations of the cryptocurrency markets. Dai and USDC are both pegged to the value of the USD.

Why use Stablecoins on Coincards.com?

Coincards.com strives to allow all cryptocurrency users the ability to cash out their crypto earnings on everyday goods through gift cards. Enabling Stablecoins for our customers means our users can purchase goods while still using a decentralized network without the volatility in prices seen with cryptos such as BTC, LTC, XMR and more.

How to Use Stablecoins on Coincards.com?

To use Stablecoins such as Dai and USDC on Coincards.com, simply follow the usual checkout flow. At the last step when you are asked to select a payment method, please select “Ethereum, Dai and USDC”. This will bring you to the Coinbase commerce checkout and allow you to complete checkout with stablecoins!

 

 

Please note: SAI payments will not be supported. Users will be warned not to send SAI, as their funds may be lost if they do so.

2019 Holiday Shipping Schedule

Holiday shopping can be daunting & time consuming. Gift Cards are a fast, easy, and thoughtful way to shower our loved ones with gifts! We are happy to be able to facilitate this for our customers.

To avoid unfortunate shipping delays, please be mindful of our cut-off dates for all orders. Electronic gift card orders must be received no later than December 23rd. Physical gift card order deadlines are listed below:

Lettermail – December 1st
Expedited Parcel – November 25th
Xpresspost Parcel – December 8th
Priority Parcel – December 8th

** Please Note: Order payments must have the necessary number of confirmations on the blockchain, by the dates listed, to be considered “received” **

Even with our Holiday Shipping Cutoff Dates in place, we can not absolutely guarantee delivery of physical orders by Christmas Day, due to unforeseen circumstances and forces beyond our control (i.e. Canada Post staffing).
