Thanks for trying us out! Can you shoot us an email at help@acceptln.com so we make sure you get your withdrawal to you? We’ve done thousands of test transactions with all the major wallets and all of the potential failures have been pre-programmed, so it should be seamless.
Note that when you submit your claim it takes a few seconds to be automatically fired off to you.
I’ve zapped you 300 sats here as well! Thank you!

Thank you! Fixing this right now, and working on a no-refresh flow in the future, much cleaner.
Interesting idea - we’re not worried about circumventing the 60 days, if you’re taking some action that’s better than nothing. But we would really like to get folks setting up their own wallet and onboarding them beyond us. That’s our real goal. Maybe we offer a “30 more days plz” extension if they just haven’t found the time.
Jamie AcceptLN Team
Thank you! Just sent you an email - the more eyes (and criticism) the better!
Onward,

We’re pondering the idea of integrating simplelogin, anonaddy, aleeas etc in-line — and even thinking about requiring you choose one, rotating the default.
Would be part of the new-user lesson. Thank you very much for your feedback,

None - just an on-chain Bitcoin address. We are based in El Salvador, not the US.
To stop people from leaving funds on the service indefinitely we start charging a daily fee after 60 days. We send reminder emails at 1, 30, 60 and every 30 days after. We really don’t want to be long term custody wallet, but we also want to let anyone receive LN before setting up their own wallet. Open to suggestions for a better set of tradeoffs!
Jamie AcceptLN Team
We’re banking on Bitcoin adoption. The service barely needs to generate any revenue to pay for itself. The point of the 60 day limit is to stop people from leaving funds on our service. I appreciate your viewpoint though, if there’s another way to encourage that we will adopt it.
Jamie AcceptLN Team
When that happens we all win! Our goal is simply to grow adoption, not have everyone using our service forever.
Onward,

I like it - although a true Lightning Address, that just works in most wallets, requires configuration at the server/domain level for your email address.
This would be a workaround where you could send your payers to AcceptLN.com, they type in your email, and can pay you "directly" to your node. By using AcceptLN you would save yourself setting up a web server or BTCPayServer, and just piggyback on ours.
We'll explore this soon! Keep the feedback coming, we really appreciate it,
Jamie AcceptLN Team
I believe he made all @Microstrategy.com email addresses also direct Lightning Addresses.
That's a bit different than our product - we're accepting payments into our wallet on behalf of email addresses, and sending them a claim email. You can use any email address with no pre-configuration at all.
It's intended for new users who have taken no action, to curb barriers-to-entry.
I wish the major email providers offered this at the domain level like @saylor did!
Jamie AcceptLN Team
Technically we could do that - but our product is focused on onboarding new people who have never yet used Lightning and don't yet have a node etc.
Could you give me an example of how your idea would work? Happy to explore!
Jamie AcceptLN Team
Yes - and will accept Lightning Addresses too.
Also working on one-click, in-line payouts & partial payments to Phone Bills, Electricity Bills etc - so new skeptical users see that LN is not a black hole.
Jamie AcceptLN Team
Thank you! Great idea. Would encourage more sat spreading, knowing that you could get most back.

Negative interest charged daily. Free for 99% of users, and the 1% that leave their sats, ignore reminder emails, are paying to keep the lights on.
