Bitcoin Refund Address Question

So I am setting up a vendor account on Hansa and it has asked me to set up A refund address. How do I get a perminent address that is secure? Im used to alpha bay where each transaction where I can add my current bit address that varies each time. Creating a perminent address is new to me and am a little weary about it. Any information would be most helpful.

How to send btc on White House market?

I'm trying to send this payment. So the first time I tried to send it I put my bitcoin wallet on "bitcoin refund address" and hit pay and the payment didnt work. Now I thought maybe I send the payment to the "Monero destination address" but its saying that isnt a legit bitcoin address to send to. So now I'm confused on how to send this bitcoin payment. I guess if I have to I'll convert to xmr but if they're giving the option to use bitcoin there should be a way to send payment. But I'm very confused on how to send it. This is very different from the sites I'm accustomed to

How to buy Ripple with Coinbase & Shapeshift (Feedback welcome)

I had some real issues using the big exchanges to purchase XRP. After a few days of research I finally put a tidy sum in a paper wallet to forget about for a while.
My friend asked me a for a How To, and this is what I sent him. Thought I would post here as it would've been useful to me. Would welcome feedback and any contributions to make it better.
Step 1. Open a Coinbase Account (boo!) and buy some Bitcoin
Step 2. Get a XRP Cold Storage Wallet
Firstly - you need an address / cold storage wallet to store your XRP On laptop/ipad use an incognito type web browser to head to this website: Once there put your device in airplane mode and turn off any wifi connection. Scroll down on the page and hit "Generate New" a whole bunch of times. Write down the Ripple Address and Secret key PERFECTLY on paper (you don't need the QR Codes). I mean it. Check it twice and then check it again. Read the one on the screen it out loud to someone else who can check it against the paper for you. Don't fuck this up. Hit generate a few more times just to be safe and then delete your browsing history if you didn't do this in an incognito browser. Close the browser and then feel free to flip your wifi back on.
Step 3. Create a watch-only XRP wallet on your device
Next you need a wallet application on a laptop so you can view the balance of the paper wallet you created above. Download this: Install it on your laptop and open it up. Click the second tab "Read Only Mode" Type in your Ripple Address (not the secret key!) and then hit Open Account. Now if you pay in anything to this wallet you can see the balance in here! Your laptop also can't hack into the account because you didn't type in your secret key! Good times! Security Check - take a moment to make damn sure that the ripple address in the top right corner of the app is exactly the same as the one you wrote down. Copy and paste it into a notepad on your laptop. Label it RIPPLE ADDRESS just so you don't make any other mistakes later.
Step 4. Buying Ripple - Direct from Coinbase (hmmmmm...)
Note: You might want to test this with a small amount of bitcoin first (£10 worth) to make sure it works. You will see why in a minute. It'll double your fees but, safety first!
Open Coinbase in a browser tab First, go to Tools > Addresses. Make sure BTC Wallet is Selected in the drop down menu and then one of the Addresses into your notepad. Label it BITCOIN REFUND ADDRESS. Next, go to Accounts > Bitcoin Wallet and click Send to bring up the dialogue box.
In a NEW TAB go to Deposit: BITCOIN! Receive: RIPPLE! On this page there are usually warnings about slow network traffic. As far as I can tell, this shouldn't matter, but it is worth noting. Type in 25 Ripple (the minimum you can have in a wallet is 20) and it will generate the Bitcoin cost. Select 'Precise' and 'Continue'
From Notepad copy your RIPPLE ADDRESS into the 'Your Ripple Address' box. Copy your BITCOIN REFUND ADDRESS into 'Your Bitcoin Refund Address' box. Ignore the 'Destination Tag' box.
Agree to Terms and...
[As soon as you click Start Transaction you will have only 5 minutes to send the Bitcoin it asks for to the address it provides. As far as I can tell it is very quick at telling when you've sent it, but it still makes me nervous. I have done it with Coinbase before and the transaction has timed out, but my Bitcoin has still been sent into the ether and lost. But from what I can tell this is rare/impossible.]
Start Transaction
It will say "Please send XXX Bitcoin to this address: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx" Copy the address, and BTC amount into the Coinbase send dialogue. Double check the address and amount is right!! Hit Send. Back in Shapeshift, after a few seconds you should get a green tick next to 'Pending Confirmations' and the timer should vanish. Next, Awaiting Exchange will flash for minutes... maybe hours... Now is the time to go make a cup of tea and watch a couple of episodes of Ozark. Better not to worry about it until...
Eventually everything will be confirmed! The BTC will have left your account. Everything will be green in Shapeshift and your XRP will show up on your watching-only Ripple Wallet. I copy the urls for each Shapeshift transaction page into a spreadsheet so I can go back and check any transaction details if I need to
That's it. Then you can close everything and know you have a sweet pot of XRP magic waiting to explode all over your bank accounts.
Just DO NOT FUCKING LOSE that piece of paper with your secret key on it. Maybe worth typing the codes (unlabelled) into notepad, printing them off 3 times, laminating them and giving one to your mum to look after.
Edit: Corrected steps #s

Purchasing on OpenBazaar via clear web

To increase adoption and usage of OpenBazaar, a bunch of folks discussed in the Slack about adding the ability to buy products over HTTP so buyers never even need to download OB but several problems present itself. Currently there is no client side OB Javascript library that will allow transactions to be trustless so here is what I was thinking for a possible implementation:
1) Buyer visits BlockBooth and finds an item they like.
2) Buyer clicks a buy button on BlockBooth.
3) Buyer can enter any shipping or contact details required for the vendor to fulfill the order. Buyer can PGP encrypt any sensitive information with the Seller's public key if available so BlockBooth knows nothing about the Buyer.
4) BlockBooth will initiate a purchase request using the above information and display the seller's direct Bitcoin address.
5) Seller will fulfill the order.
Here are the caveats:
This implementation would be partly centralized so it's not ideal, but better than nothing. The entire transaction will be trustless if PGP is used except for BlockBooth displaying the Seller's correct bitcoin address to the Buyer. Is this something the community would appreciate and use? If so I'll work on it, and if not then I'll wait for the ability to do this locally over JS.
I'm not too sure on the legal implications yet but BlockBooth in 99.99% of cases will not be handling any Bitcoin but will be a passthru for information. If someone sells a pornographic item to a user in Saudi Arabia can BlockBooth be held liable? That's a question for a lawyer if there is interest in this service.
What do you all think?

Bitcoin Cash help

I recently purchased bitcoin in Coinbase and want to transfer to Bitcoin Cash. When I go to shapeshift these are first questions I don’t know. I don’t know what Bitcoin Cash address or where I can find. Or Bitcoin refund address. I would also be ok just to go purchase Bitcoin Cash with out transfer existing bitcoin. I need a good place to purchase in USA. Or any other recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Step by step guide to converting btc to monero?

I just tried to do this and ended up with my btc going back into my original wallet, minus a chunk for fees. I followed the instructions on the shapeshift site, or at least I thought I did, so bit annoyed that I've lost money doing this. Was it my fault? Can someone link me to a very simple 101 guide on how to do this?
Here's what happened:
I bought £200 of btc on coinbase. Loaded up, chose deposit btc and receive mnr, hit 'precise' and 'continue'.
Deposit amount was 0.05999 (or thereabouts) as that's what I had on coinbase. I set up an account on mymonero (which logs out all the damn time, is this right?), copied the address from the 'overview' screen and pasted it into 'your monero address' field on shapeshift.
Copied the btc address from coinbase and pasted that into the 'your bitcoin refund address' field and left payment id blank. Agree to terms and start transaction.
Then the status screen said:
Send This Amount 0.05999 Bitcoin To 16***************XrEPp7r
So I sent the bitcoin from coinbase to that address. However it was slightly less as coinbase took a fee for doing this.
But then the time remaining on this shapeshift status screen ran out and I had no monero in my mymonero account plus the bitcoin had disappeared from my coinbase.
After a few hours the btc turned up back in my coinbase account minus £6 in fees.
Where did I go wrong?

Unable to purchase anything - "Reason: invalid pubkey"

Whatever I try to buy, I'm getting the error message above. I've tried different revisions of openbazaar. I'm wondering if I will need to tear down everything and start from scratch?
Update 1: buyers trying to purchase from me through a direct pay gets another error message:
The vendor's server has rejected the purchase request. This may be due to a connection issue. Check your purchase data, such as quantity and Bitcoin refund address, to make sure it is valid. If it is valid, try again in a few seconds. Reason: vendor rejected contract
Update 2: buyers using a moderated payment ... and I get the payment request, but my server crashes instantly with "segmentation fault" if I either try to accept or refund the payment.

Please add SegWit support for Bitcoin

Now that Bitcoin activated on mainnet, it would be a great time for you to add support for it, that will lower the txfee that you pay in some cases, and would allow your users who get Bitcoins to spend their funds with lower fxfee too.
You would just need to generate the addresses on your wallet (the "send Bitcoin here" address) in SegWit format. On Bitcoin Core bitcoind this is fully implemented.
Also, accept addresses in such format (2... , 3...) as the "your bitcoin address" (and "bitcoin refund address" in case of BTC->X conversions).
Is this already being worked on? Any ETA on this?

The vendor's server has rejected the purchase request.

What's the cause of that message? I try to verify that my store is working fine, but when I order I get that message (after a long wait after "Contacting seller's node and updating exchange rates if applicable")
The full message is:
The vendor's server has rejected the purchase request. This may be due to a connection issue. Check your purchase data, such as quantity and Bitcoin refund address, to make sure it is valid. If it is valid, try again in a few seconds. Reason: unable to reach vendor

Yesterday, ShapeShift rejected my 4,000 GNT to ANT transaction, and returned the 4,000 GNT to the wrong address. Is there any recourse for this? I've emailed their support but haven't heard back.
The Refund Address was properly inputted in the original transaction AND support ticket. Related: [link]1
ShapeShift returned the 4,000 GNT to the last 40 characters of the original transaction's txid hash. I'm still trying to figure out how that made sense.
