11. Installing Coinbase

1.2 Account verification
For ID verification you will need your phone number, a Webcam and either a ID card, Driver's License or Passport at hand. If webcam is not an option for you, you can try verifying your ID on your mobile phone with the coinbase application.
This will allow Coinbase to verify your bitcoin account is legitimate yours. And if anything happens you can easily retrieve it with your ID information. This can be tedious, but once you get past this step it’s smooth sailing and using bitcoin for transaction will be super easy and convenient!

If it takes more than a day and your order is still not set to paid, you should contact us at Nirvana Support. But we can assure you our ninja’s are working as hard as they can to make sure your order will be processed as fast and stealthy possible!
Placing an order in the weekend might take longer, it could take up to Monday afternoon. Please wait until Monday afternoon before contacting support.
In some situations we have to manually process the transactions, such as:
- Taking more than 15 minutes to finalize the order.
- When the transaction was made with mBTC or BITS instead of BTC.
