I bought Bitcoins from the Robocoin ATM (I'm told it's the only one) and it gave me a receipt with a QR code to scan into my wallet. I downloaded Blockchain, but don't see where in the app I can scan the receipt to add to my wallet. Help!

  • What does "I downloaded blockchain" mean? What program are you using exactly? – David Schwartz Apr 17 '17 at 22:48

Find a button labeled "import private key", and it'll open a camera view to let you scan the QR code.

    Thanks for the quick response. I'm not seeing that button. There are 4 tabs on the bottom. On the piggyback one the screen just says "No Data". Refreshing does nothing. – NewToThis Dec 6 '13 at 7:21

Using the blockchain.info app go to your address book (menu button in top left).. then when in the address book click the same top-left menu button and you'll see the import private key option. Scan the QR, job done.

Alternatively use a QR scanning app such as QRDroid and then you can copy & paste the resulting private key into anything you like.

Use your phone, scan the QR code. This is the private key you need to import. You could send the key via email and then import it into your wallet.

    Email is not secure. I wouldn't recommend sending it over unencrypted email. – Tim S. Mar 6 '14 at 21:31
