Fidor bank direct payments have been added as a payment option.
Fidor is a German bank which has just recently launched their services in the UK. They claim to be Bitcoin friendly. You can open an account with them for free (but verification can take a week or two with the code being sent in the post).
You can fund your Fidor bank account by UK bank transfer, and you can make UK bank transfers from your Fidor account, but these transactions are not instant.
However they also allow internal transfers by using only an ID, an email address, a username or a Twitter handle. You can send money quickly and without fees.
If you see an offer such as above, it means the seller expects you to make the payment by using your Fidor bank account to their Fidor ID, rather than traditional UK banking with faster payments.
For now, sellers will be testing the waters with good BTC offers with a low barrier to entry (no ID verification, no previous trade history required, no verified phone number, etc).
Protip: open a Fidor bank account today, buy your bitcoins conveniently.

Some of our users (buyers and sellers) have noticed strange behaviour on the bitcoin network. Similar to what happened in 2014, bitcoin has a new malleability problem. A transaction could be modified (resulting in a different TXID) in a way that it’s still valid, and some jokers are using this to double random transactions on the network.
This could result in:
- you seeing ‘unknown transaction’ when trying to look up your own withdrawal
- a deposit you make to BitBargain being ‘doubled’ but one part remaining unconfirmed forever
- after making a withdrawal, the other party could become suspicious of you trying to double spend
Rest assured that:
- the bitcoins are *SAFE* on BitBargain.
- it’s not a BitBargain issue, it can happen with any transaction on the network
- it will be fixed (Bitcoin Core developers are working on it already)
