I paid for a new mock using a BTC-processor that handles the bitcoin payment (with the use of a unique address).

Later I got a message from the vendor saying that the transaction was "cancelled", later he showed me a picture of his admin-dashboard where is showed that "status: failure", but the bitcoins are already over my side probably this was caused because I sent them less that the actual price stated(really minor). secondly I assume the bitcoins are now on his wallet, but he declines the bitcoins are on his wallet. now the question, who is responsible, I, the bitcoin gateway, or the vendor, and has the vendor to ship the item?

Here is the actual payment: https://www.blockchain.com/btc/address/16q9osWoKYffbY8iwJrr7DJg48sJWc4pGM

  • Careful: whether a Bitcoin transaction was performed can be checked objectively, and all that info is public. Screenshots don't prove anything. “I didn't receive the Bitcoins” is a common scam. That said, it is possible that the transaction wasn't performed – but then the Bitcoins would remain in your wallet. – amon Sep 22 '19 at 21:47

The transaction you cite shows that the coins left what I presume is your wallet and went to another. You say that you "used" a payment processor, who will presumably convert the coins to Euros and pay your vendor. If so then the processor now has the coins.

However it is your responsibility to get the payment to the vendor by following their instructions. So if the vendor has not got the money then this is your problem: you still need to pay. The only exception would be if the vendor screwed up by giving you the wrong payment information.

  • Really thanks a lot for this information, i'll be looking further what will happen and eventually contacting the PP company. – tungsten Sep 22 '19 at 15:31
