Differences between Chain Retailers and Independent Retailers / ATMs
Purchasing from a Chain Retailer is slightly different if you have used LibertyX at our Independent Retailers or ATMs.
First, instead of generating a LibertyX order number, you will generate a barcode to give to the cashier. Second, when you are paying cash at the participating Chain Retailer location, you will first add cash to your LibertyX account. After the payment is complete, the balance shows up in your LibertyX account. Click "Convert to bitcoin" button in the app to complete your bitcoin purchase.
