    Ok, maybe it's time to jump on the Bitcoin bandwagon, however, in my pricing scheme I want to charge a premium or full non discount price for those willing to use the shaky cryptocurrency...

    My regular price is $79.95 and for all traditional credit card transactions, I reduce that price by 75% to the magical number of $19.95

    HOWEVER, and not to be greedy, I would like to set it up so if someone uses BITCOIN as their payment option, the full $79.95 is charged....or at the current unbelievable BC price of $15,400 USD equivalent... 0.01 bitcoin.

    Is that possible to do with aMember?

    We have surcharge plugin that allow to add surcharge fee (fixed amount or % of total) based on used payment system.
    I guess you can use this plugin to increase price for bitcoin payment option.

    You can request this plugin in helpdesk:

    Here is screenshot of plugin configuration from my test installation.
    List of payment systems depend on plugins enabled in your setup.

    Best Regards.

    What reason do you have to charge so much for those who use the "shaky" currency? Use something like Bitpay (amember has plugin) and there should be minimal or no transaction costs unlike a credit card transaction PLUS the bitcoin is converted to USD (or possibly whatever your currency is) on the spot so the shakiness of bitcoins is really of no worry to you. If anything you should offer a slight discount fort hose who pay via bitcoins as it costs you less, with no chargeback risk. People arent going to pay you more just because the price of bitcoin is so high. They are still conscious consumers.

    Not "shaky" are you kidding? Not long ago it was worth 18 cents, now it's $18,000 and rising.
    I'm not charging more, I'm just not applying the discount that established currency (dollar) users get. That is my business decision and mine alone. Your opinion is yours.
