XMR.to allows privacy conscious individuals to pay bitcoin-accepting merchants in Monero.Today, an ever increasing number of merchants accept bitcoin. However, this convenience has come at a cost. In the traditional banking system entities you transact with cannot see your bank account or your transactions with other parties. The transparent public blockchain of bitcoin, on the other hand constantly broadcasts all information about every transaction you make to the entire world.
The Monero project promotes a technological solution for financial privacy by default. We believe that such financial privacy is a basic human right. Our mission is to serve the Monero community to help maintain that right in a world currently dominated by fiat and Bitcoin. XMR.to recognized very early on that the Monero technology could help this state of affairs. However the number of merchants accepting Monero is still too limited. XMR.to allows Monero users to spend their Monero at any Bitcoin-accepting merchants.
Something went wrong with your order? don't panic. We’ve served the community for years and nobody has ever lost funds. The friendly people at firstname.lastname@example.org can help you out. Please include these details in your support request:
Please understand that for operational reasons, we can’t reimburse you in Bitcoin.
No. We tell you the BTC/XMR exchange rate that you are getting and the exact number of moneroj you need to send us in order to have your Bitcoin payment fulfilled.
Yes! Just click on the link "enter payment bill URL" just below our input field for the BTC address. Then paste the url that you see in your browser on the payment bill page (for instance it may look like 'https://www.bitpay.com/xxx'). That's it!
The indicative rate is the rate we currently offer for a standard order size. We call it indicative as it might change depending on the amount of your order. If you want to see the actual rate for your desired amount, just create an order!

By default, Monero payments protect your privacy much better than Bitcoin ones, by putting you back in control: you control how much you reveal and to who thanks to view keys. Hence, it is not XMR.to that protects your privacy as we are NOT a trusted third party in the equation – something we would be uncomfortable with. Instead, it is Monero that gives you back control of a reasonable financial privacy in the digital realm.
Note that because the Bitcoin blockchain is transparent, payments originating from us will be easily discernible as coming from XMR.to. However, thanks to the intrinsic properties of Monero, no-one can associate that payment with you unless you decide to. This would be true and simpler if your merchant was accepting Monero directly – insist they should do so next time!
We believe in the right to financial privacy, but at the same time, it’s our duty to prevent misuse of our platform. We have technical measures in place to detect and prevent misuse. We also cooperate with authorities in justified cases: when there is an indication of a crime and a valid legal basis for a request for information. However, to be clear, we do not believe that authorities should be able to just ‘fish’ for mass information without legally enforceable grounds.
Yes - that’s why we support and promote Monero. /s
Yes, we do! Feel free to use it.
"Monero" is the Esperanto word for "currency". And the plural form in Esperanto should be written "Moneroj" with a 'j'. ("Moneros" is also considered correct). You'll get used to it. :)
