I'm not really sure :(  I think paypal can handle conversion okay-ish, it depends if your direct card charges a higher conversion rate.

Ehh... if you need to convert money, go paypal - they're reasonable.
I would probably pay using paypal either way... They're pretty secure.
Cydia needs to accept Bitcoin already.  :-\

Cydia supporting bitcoin would mean the developers would probably need to accept it because it's an unstable market :/

Nah, there are systems where devs set the price in dollars, when I want to pay in bitcoin the price is converted to bitcoins, I pay that many bitcoins then they're immediately converted back to dollars.
So the dev sets a price in dollars, gets paid in dollars but I can pay in BTC. If that makes sense... :P

Ohhhhh in that case then yeah it should be :P Although it probably won't be :(  (also, how would it handle refunds? ;)  Cydia itself doesn't track the payments, but rather Amazon and paypal do)

No payment receipt ;)  That's what I was meaning, the transaction/payment ID is I think handled by both paypal and amazon, because it has you enter the payment ID or something similar on the online interface for package owners.  I could be wrong and it is supplied by the cydia store itself and is just part of the receipt in paypal though :P

Don't most tweaks have a trial so you can see if you like it?

No, they don't.  :(

I don't really know the workings of bitcoin but I thought it was all decentralized in a way, so that would presume Cydia would want to use coin base on it's end to handle things too.
