Fill in all the merchant’s details in the form, such as their business name, what category they’re in, and other location information. The more information you provide, the better.

If you’re at the merchant’s location at the time of filling out this form, tap *I am here. Use my location. *This will record the latitude and longitude coordinates so we don’t have to look this up manually.

Tap Ok and you’re done! All businesses suggested will be verified as currently accepting bitcoin, before they are approved and added to our Merchant Directory.
