Arusoft adds Bitcoin as payment method for its DeUHD Ultra HD Blu-ray ripping tool

Posted 25 January 2018 17:32 CEST by Jan Willem Aldershoff

Arusoft has added Bitcoin as a new payment method for its Ultra HD Blu-ray ripping software, DeUHD. With the relative anonymous cryptocurrency both software and hardware bundles can be purchased. The company announced the new payment method on our forum after several users complained they had issues paying for DeUHD using a credit card.

There has been a history of payment issues for DeUHD. Initially the DeUHD website didn’t use HTTPS encrypted connections. This made some users feel unsafe paying with their credit card. The issue was resolved pretty quickly and the DeUHD website now uses HTTPS.

Unfortunately there were still issues with the payments. Some users saw their payment to Arusoft rejected by their credit card issuer.  It’s unknown why, some users report the payments go through a Chinese payment provider, which might be an issue for some credit card companies.

To make sure everyone is now able to make payments, the company decided to add Bitcoin as a payment option today. Besides the regular software licenses, Arusoft also sells hardware bundles where their software is bundled with either the ASUS BC12D2HT or ASUS BW16D1HT. The company guarantees both drives to work with their software.

Here are two easy ways to get Bitcoins quickly:

  • Coinbase (free $10 in BTC with this link) – Pay with ACH transfers or credit card – ID verification
  • Changelly – Pay with credit card – Only verification of phone number

Although Bitcoin transactions are public, Arusoft appears to be using a new Bitcoin address for each transaction making it impossible to track how many users actually use the new Bitcoin option.

Arusoft is not the first movie ripping software company to add Bitcoin support. Also Redfox accepts payments with Bitcoin and also with Bitcoin Cash and Litecoin.
