Bitcoin is a digital currency that has been gaining rapid traction globally. Payments on the network are near instant, secure and have very low fees.
You need to know about a couple of concepts:
BTC (Bitcoin) Amount - The amount to be sent, as 1 single bitcoin is valued at >$1000, you are going to see a lot of rather small looking numbers. eg 100 USD = 0.09126 Bitcoin
Bitcoin Wallet Address - eg. '1AAp272KsiTCKhT7Ddpn4tG34ZHyekF1k2' - stores Bitcoins. Payments are made by sending from one wallet to another.
You can pay for you order at a local newsagent (or Commonwealth Bank branch) as an alternative to setting up Coinbase, please refer to the following guide:
