How does the service work? The buyer selects the product that they would like to purchase on Amazon, and puts it in the cart on the Purse website. A person who wants to buy bitcoins, sees this application, and pays for the selected product with regular money. After that, the goods are sent to the buyer, and the buyer’s bitcoins are sent to the person who bought the goods for them. The transaction ends.
The buyer saves 5 percent or more of the value of the goods. Depending on the purchase amount, with Purse.io you can save quite a decent amount of money. However, is it really so smooth? When studying the detailed characteristics of the product at Purse.io functions are limited. So, there is no possibility on the site to read reviews left by Amazon buyers, and you cannot leave reviews on Purse.io itself.
