Ironically Stripe recently discontinued support for Bitcoin payments. Today, Coinbase introduces it's Stripe-like competitor focused on digital currency transactions. This is a big move for Coinbase, extending its offering. Side note: Keep an eye on their Toshi platform. It could be a sleeper.

@frantzlight I downloaded it, try again.
@rrhoover More interestingly, Stripe's implementation actually just used Coinbase's API in the background.

I see posts on Reddit and Twitter about Coinbase's horrible Customer Support nearly weekly. It's a shame that they are launching a new product when people can't even get their money out of Coinbase.

Pros:

Cool idea!

Cons:

Coinbase's support team has been overwhelmed for over a year. How can they support a new product too when they can't support their old one?

"Coinbase's support team has been overwhelmed for over a year. How can they support a new product too when they can't support their old one" <--- my sentiments exactly
More like daily and not weekly
True story! Worst customer service I've ever dealt with.
They have a customer service team at Coinbase?
Is Coinbase putting on extra support staff to be able to respond to users in a timely manner? Reddit is full of accounts of extremely slow service times, frozen accounts, lack of communication experiences between company and user. How is the exchange, who is unbelievable busy already, add a new layer/service and scale its support commensurately? Thanks.

Like other have mentioned, easy entry into crypto but high fees and multiple times not being able to use the platform coupled with almost non-existant support having to wait weeks to get a response that doesn't even address your question. It's nice they want to add new features for us but they need to first be able to support the existing features and user base.

Pros:

Easy, Entry Level

Cons:

Expensive, Understaffed support

@maksim_s Can you walk me through the purchase cycle? If I buy something using BTC, do I need to wait the 15/20min for the network to accept the transaction? Or do transaction under a certain amount just get processed if I have some form of 'reputation'
@hcdoe we kept things simple for now: https://commerce.coinbase.com/faq. You will have to wait a certain number of confirmations (depends on the network) for a payment to confirm. Longer term: we will be spending more time thinking about how to improve this experience.
@maksim_s Awesome. (I'm sure your aware of it) But I've been using Nano recently which is instant transfer which has been useful

@maksim_s Is there some way we can get a confirmation when the payment is confirmed? Right now it just looks like I can embed a button or link on my site that let's people pay me. I want to be able to hook that into an API so that I can confirm that a customer has paid. Is that possible?
