Once Etsy accepts it, the value will go way up.  The Swiss Franc doubled in price once it was announced you could use them to buy an assortment of artisan birdhouses and ironic needlepoints handmade in Portland.

I don't know about bitcoin, but I recently had an order go astray because I accidentally took the wrong country from the drop-down menu for something I order for my mom and dad.

Parents' house, parents' street, parents' ZIP, in a little hamlet you might have heard of called "Los Angeles, CA." But because I put in the wrong country it went to the better-known "Los Angeles, California, Israel," where it's now lost somewhere in our already barely-functional postal system.

A simple email from the vendor would have cleared up the confusion.

They will have to if their competitors do.

And they will.

12 to 24 months you will see it on their balance sheet.

Oh really? Maybe if your little provincial parish had checked to make sure the zip code was different than the one in Israel, you wouldn't be in this situation with confused vendors.

The ZIP codes are different. Apparently country takes priority over ZIP.
