How To Request a Gold Payment
The simplest way to receive a gold payment is
creating a link (URL) containing the necessary
information for the payment. Your customer simply
clicks on your payment link, and gets redirected to
iGolder.com where all the payment details are
already pre-filled. Your customer simply enters
his/her email and password to acknowledge the
payment. iGolder will automatically send you an email notification
message every time you receive a payment to your account. If you wish
to fully automate the processing of your gold payments with a "return URL", please visit our Shopping Cart Interface.
Requesting a Gold Payment
iGolder provides a wizard to Request a Gold Payment. You simply enter the gold amount or a fiat amount,
and iGolder will create the URL for you. You may post this URL to your
website, or send it by email or instant messaging.
Why using a Payment URL?
- You may wish to sell a product or service on
your website. By creating a link
containing the payment details, the visitor only
needs to click on the link and enter his/her
email address and password to complete the
payment. If the visitor already has an
iGolder account, the payment can be completed in
less than one minute.
- You may wish to receive a donation in gold.
By creating a link, you make it simple and easy
for the donor to transfer gold ownership to your
- You may request gold by sending a payment
link by email to your customer. You create a
link containing the payment details, and your
customer only has to click on the link and
complete the transfer. This way, you
reduce the risks of errors, such as making the
payment to the wrong account and/or receiving
the wrong quantity of gold.
Examples of Payment URL

alias) of the
sub-account you wish to receive your gold payment.

email address, however if you wish to make a gold payment to
someone else, you are welcome to specify the email address of
||Amount of grams of gold you wish to transfer. You may
set any decimal value to the accuracy of the milligram.

parameter AmountFiat with

||The payment fields (AmountGold or
AmountFiat) and the recipient
(To) are encrypted so the customer cannot change the payment amount.
The payment amount is therefore read-only.
||A short memo describing the transaction. This value
may be anything describing the transaction, such as the invoice number
or product description. We recommend you to always include
a memo for every transaction. This way, if a
dispute arise, iGolder may
use the memo to start investigating the performance obligations
of the seller.
If the memo includes spaces and/or special characters, then
it must must be
URL Encoded otherwise the memo will be truncated to
the first illegal character.
