Spending Monero on Coincards.ca with XMR.to

What is XMR.TO?

XMR.to allows customers to make a Bitcoin payment with the strong privacy provided by Monero. This means that using Monero together with XMR.to, you can pay any Bitcoin address in the world while protecting your privacy, including those invoices generated by Coincards.ca.

How does it work? (tl;dr version)

  1. Proceed to checkout until you receive an Invoice with BTC amounts and open a new window to XMR.to
  2. Copy Bitcoin details from the invoice: BTC address to pay, and the amount you need to send. Hit the ‘Create’ button.
  3. XMR.to tells you how many moneroj you need to send.
  4. Once XMR.to receives the moneroj you sent, bitcoin payment is sent and your invoice is paid.

Spending your Altcoins at Coincards.ca with Changelly – ETH, ZCASH, TETHER, DAI, XRP and Many More!

Exchange 100+ Altcoins for Gift Cards with the Click of a Button!

It has always been our mission to make it as easy as possible for Canadians to exchange their cryptocurrency for gift cards that can be used for everyday products and services.

When the Bitcoin network was slower and congested, an alternative was needed, and we integrated Litecoin. We have also since directly integrated Dogecoin and Dash directly into our platform.

Unfortunately, we simply cannot build native acceptance into our platform for every altcoin out there, however, with great services such as Changelly, we don’t have to! Thanks to @MrKukks of BTCpay we now can offer just that. With the integration of the new Changelly API, you can now pay your Coincards.ca invoices with more than 100 altcoins supported by Changelly.

Possible Canada Post Job Action – September 2018

Update 10/18/2018: The Canadian Union of Postal Workers has announced a 72-hour strike notice with job action commencing Monday, October 22nd, 2018. At this time job action seems to be planned to be rotating and while causing delays should not affect the ability of the delivery service. We will continue to offer Canada Post shipping options until such time that job action results in a stoppage of work. At that time, we will stop all mail shipments and remove the options again. 

Update 09/26/2018: At this time there has been no indication of Job action happening in the coming days. We have decided to reactivate Canada Post shipping options until such time that job action has been announced. At that time, we will stop all mail shipments and remove the options again.


At Coincards.ca we rely on Canada Post for all outbound shipments to our customers. We offer a wide range of shipping options from free letter mail delivery to next day priority services.

Unfortunately, due to the inability of Canada Post to reach an agreement with its workers, Canada Post is facing possible job action starting on Sept. 26, 2018. As a result, orders which are scheduled to ship might be delayed.

How this affects our customers:
