Bitcoin - The Currency of the Internet

A community dedicated to Bitcoin, the currency of the Internet. Bitcoin is a distributed, worldwide, decentralized digital money. Bitcoins are issued and managed without any central authority whatsoever: there is no government, company, or bank in charge of Bitcoin. You might be interested in Bitcoin if you like cryptography, distributed peer-to-peer systems, or economics.

To be clear: An unfavorable ruling by the European Court of Justice regarding VAT and Bitcoin would make accepting Bitcoins for merchants in the EU around 20 % more expensive than other payment solutions.

Scenario: Carlos, a customer, buys a pizza from Mark, the merchant, and pays in Bitcoin.
First of all: The question is not, whether VAT applies to the pizza. That will definitely be the case. If I'm buying a laptop in, let's say, Germany for 1190 EUR, then 190 EUR of that (VAT in Germany is 19 %) goes to the tax man, regardless of whether I pay with euros, bitcoins or gold.
The question is, what happens to the bitcoins afterwards. The merchant now has bitcoins and will want to get rid of them at some point. Either to exchange for euros or to buy a product or service. So he is again selling a "product" (this time bitcoin, considered a commodity under current German tax law, as far as my reading of the law goes). If the product is not ruled VAT-exempt, he will have to pay another 19 % (or whatever the rate in his country is) at that point.
That's the issue.
Another question is, whether that also applies, if the merchant uses BitPay. In the worst case, BitPay could be considered as just an agent acting in the name of the merchant (their terms of use suggest something like that), thereby still putting the merchant in a position, where he - from a tax perspective - has briefly owned bitcoins and then sold them again.
In my opinion, this tax question is super critical and needs to be the top discussion right now. The Bitcoin Foundation and other Bitcoin associations (Bundesverband Bitcoin e.V. in Germany) need to closely follow the case C-264/14 Skatteverket v David Hedqvist where the European Court of Justice will decide about just that. And we need to provide resources to bring about a sensible ruling.
See http://www.bitcoin.se/2014/08/21/i-need-your-help-funding-legal-costs-in-a-case-at-the-eu-court-of-justice-related-to-bitcoin-and-vat-exemption/ and consider donating!
Edit: I should have added the disclaimer, that I'm not a lawyer and this is just my personal interpretation, which very well might be wrong. I have however been following this topic for a while, talked to various parties and read some of the laws involved.
Edit 2: Alright, a little intermediate summary of the discussion below: I'm probably mistaken about the details of case C-264/14 as rtuck99 pointed out. It seems that case will only deal with the question of whether bitcoin exchange fees are VAT-exempt. In my opinion my larger point still stands though, that the ECJ will likely decide about VAT on the bitcoins themselves at some point. Compare the UK guidelines on Bitcoin and VAT with this statement by the German Federal Ministry of Finance (in German, alternatively see this press release by Bundesverband Bitcoin e.V. in English). These two guidelines are - in my opinion - incompatible with each other. Something that ultimately the ECJ will have to resolve. Maybe that will not happen as part of case C-264/14 (but it might, as it's somewhat related, so it still seems risky to me, to let David Hedqvist fight that on his own), but it will happen eventually and we need to have our side presented well then.
Edit 3: David Hedqvist commented below that the case might indeed deal with the issue in a broader sense.

Tech Crunch: Paypal integrating Bitcoin for Merchants - Is it time to invest in Bitcoin?

Accept ACH -> Bitcoin for merchant

So I have a small side business and I currently have my clients pay me via ACH transfers. I do this because with quickbooks it's a flat 50c per ACH payment no matter the amount.
Anyway, Im interested in perhaps accepting these payments in bitcoin (my clients would NOT pay in bitcoin) by my customers paying via ACH like they do now and me receiving BTC.
Is there anyway to make this work? I am a complete newbie to BTC so I would like to know how can I protect my bitcoin. Is there a general comprehensive guide to knowing how to protect yourself with bitcoin?
Any help would be appreciated.
TIA

Short survey on Bitcoin for merchants

Hey Guys,
I am a high school student and I'm writing a paper in Economics on Bitcoin and the world economy.
To aid my investigation, I have created a short survey for merchants who accept Bitcoin as a means of payment.
I posted here earlier, with a survey for consumers (https://www.reddit.com/Bitcoin/comments/3yi7q3/survey_on_bitcoin_for_research_paper_in_economics/), and after receiving way more responses than I expected, I created another survey for merchants.
It will only take 5-6 minutes to answer (though I would appreciate it if you would take the time to write more thoughtful answers): https://aniruddhagarwal.typeform.com/to/nPyuQS
I hope some of you will help with the paper. I'll be happy to answer any queries in the comments down below.
Thanks,

Bitzaar.com - Bitcoins for Merchants

Pretty much a copy and paste from the forum
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=50212.0
Hello Everyone!
I know my project may be against the entire vibe of this community, but for some of you it may be useful, and for you I will pursue it!
I'd like to present the official public beta (alpha? :o) of Bitzaar!
Bitzaar aims to be an e-wallet service, but focused on merchants. We want to make it easy for merchants to accept bitcoins and conduct business with this magical currency.
At Bitzaar we'll be focusing primarily on enabling merchants to provide their services without having to worry about bitcoin clients, server security, or any of the other things associated with accepting a currency. We're going to be introducing more cart integrations in the near future, for now we just have the big one...WHMCS.
We want merchants to focus on what they do best, their products and customers!
For right now I'm only announcing a preview of the service that runs on the Bitcoin testnet. This is to close any security holes that may come up, polish features and usability, and get general feedback without you having to worry about losing any of your hard earned coins.
https://stage.bitzaar.com
Constructive ;) feedback is most appreciated!
Ideas and feature requests are more than welcome! We'll be trying to release as safely and often as we can. ;D
We're in the process of adding Dwolla for account withdrawals. This should be done by the final non-testnet release.

Bitcoin for merchants... HELP! (please;)

I have been plugging away at trying to integrate bitcoin with my shopping cart site. I would love some guidance before I waste any more time banging my n00b, HTML-challenged head against the wall. Takers?

Bitcoin for Merchants Help :)

I operate a shopping cart site using 3dcart, and I REALLY want to integrate bitcoins as an acceptable payment method. I know this must be possible despite no easy 3dcart plugin, etc., but I am a n00b and HTML challenged. I would love to learn how to do this, and any help or tutelage would be greatly appreciated. I work for an apparel printing and promo products distributor, and I'm interested in making/selling some bitcoin shirts, but first I want to officially join the ranks of merchants (we're both online and brick&mortar) accepting bitcoin! Takers?

Why does it cost me a fee to buy bitcoin, a fee to send bitcoin, and a fee for the merchant to receive my bitcoin?

It literally costs me three different transaction fees just to spend my own money. It’s horrible.
Edit: Okay, I understand now guys. Everyone wants profit. Please tell me there’s at least one service that’ll forgo the fees and simply collect interest? Or can I host my own way of sending bitcoin by chance? I’m literally going to spend hundreds in fees if I can’t optimize this. It’s quite off balance compared to actual costs of merchandise.

Bitcoin Cash has already lost at the cash register - why brick and mortar merchant adoption is not a significant driver for BCH growth

Couldn't the use of "colored coins" in Bitcoin Cash help with adoption by removing the price volatility 100% for merchants?

Lets say a company like Home Depot issues gift cards in the form of Bitcoin Cash colored coins. They could sell $0.01 worth of BCH for $20 store credit.
The price volatility of BCH completely leaves the equation for the merchant.
The downside is for the customer who now only holds Home Demo credits, but it could help with adoption - and transactions to secure the network.
