Bitcoins are only very temporary stored on this server. As soon as a transaction is finished, the bitcoins are sent to their respective owners.

Your callback API should return the plaintext OK. As long as we didn't receive the OK from your server, we will keep trying to contact your server in (incrementing) intervals.

We're trying to make a nice webservice that can easily be used by programmers. We are not providing services for end users or shop owners.
Yes you can! Besides, you don't really have to trust us. If you notice that your payments are not immediately send to your private bitcoin account, you can stop using our service right away. However, we promise we'll be good.
This API was mainly created to be used in the projects of CatLab Interactive, so we need to keep it online for ourselves. We'll make sure you won't encounter any problems. :)
