Now Accepting Ripple as Payment

Kite at North is now accepting ripple as payment! If you need help on how to buy ripple with credit card check out the following guide. We strongly support Ripple and what it will be used for and stand for. That is why we are adding it as a payment option in store!

So how will you pay using ripple? We will have our QR code at checkout. All you have to do is scan the code with your phone and send us the money in Ripple. Ripple is in our opinion the best Crypto out there right now, that is why we believe in it and are accepted it as a form of payment.

In fact we are so excited about ripple that we are giving anyone who buys cards with ripple 10% off your whole order! That’s right 10% off just for using Ripple!

Again check out this guide on how to buy ripple with a debit card or credit card.

Now this of course brings open other questions like are we going to start to accept other cryptos? We will if people want them. If we get a ton of requests from people that are like; “We want you to accept etheruem!” We will listen! We just need to know what you guys want!

I do not think we will be accepting bitcoin. It can change in price by the $100s and we can’t risk that. I hope everyone is okay with that and understands!

 

Protecting Your Cards From Theft

Hello everyone, we would like to remind all our players to make sure they keep all their belongings with them at all times. We have several cases of people leaving a deck box or binder at our shop. Luckily we get these items and put them behind the counter as quickly as possible. You’ll get back your cards, as long as you know what cards there are, or other descriptive things about it.

Now there isn’t a 100% way to make sure nothing you have is ever stolen but we hope this post can deter it. Here are our top three tips to protect your cards from theft.

  1. You Don’t Need All Your Decks With You. So many times, we have people come in here with six decks. We don’t have any tournaments that would require six decks. Take what you need to events. If you are going to a standard tournament, take your standard deck. Maybe take one other deck you want to play with on down time or after the event. Having six decks increase the chance of one getting stole, and the chance of you losing one.
  2. Don’t Have Other People Watch Your Stuff. It is already hard enough to watch your own stuff, but putting it off on someone else who is probably just as busy as you isn’t a good idea. Even if the person is your friend, its easy to forget about something especially if it isn’t your own. I suggest you bring a backpack and have your stuff in there. Of course you will only be carrying a couple decks at most if you listened to the first rule.
  3. Keep Your Around Your Foot. I know this sound funny, but put your backpack shoulder loop through your leg. What this does is, if anyone does try and steal your bag, they would have to lift your foot up, and then take your bag. Which you should notice!

Those our tips to keep your cards safe. We have a small crowd here at Kite at North. So most people that come here and the same people every week, but we do have a couple new people every week. We have yet to have any theft at our store and we would like to keep it at way! We do our part to have cameras and watch people but we need your help too. Don’t bring your full thousand dollar trade binder every day.

Do you have any other tips for people to prevent theft? Left us know!

 

Setting Up Our Website

Hey everyone! We are just getting our website set up right now. We are hoping to get every up an running this week. We will be using our website to better host and keep our players update about tournaments, have special deals, and be able to get feedback a lot easier now.

If you want to sign up for a tournament or check out stats from previous tournaments check out the tournaments page. In addition we have the Friday Night Magic Monthly standings in the right side bar as that is our most popular event here at Kite.

We also have the contact page so you guys can contact us easier instead of having to message us on social media or driving out to the store. In addition you can always check out the store news page to see if anything has happened to the tournament or if the store is going to be closed.
