How to Buy Bitcoin Quickly and Easily with a Credit Card

There are several steps to getting started with Bitcoin when you are new. It may seem overwhelming at first as there is a lot to take in, but once you have the basics down, traveling quickly down the Bitcoin rabbit hole is easy. The challenge at this point is actually understanding all the complexities of Bitcoin; but we’ll save that for another day.

In this guide, we will show you how to get your first Bitcoin in just a few steps. Before we do, please make sure you have looked over our other guides as they are just as important. Specifically, you will want to make sure you understand how to choose the right Bitcoin wallet before buying so that you have a Bitcoin wallet address ready and can store your Bitcoin safely and securely after purchasing it.

Buying Bitcoin with a credit card

To get started, simply visit the Buy Bitcoin page. Make sure that you have your Bitcoin wallet address ready to send the bitcoin to after purchasing it. Once you have that ready, you can start to buy your first Bitcoin.

Buy Bitcoin with a credit card

The buy page will look similar to the image pictured inline (it may vary at times as we improve). Enter the amount in USD you want to purchase, for example if you want to buy $150 worth of Bitcoin. The page will auto-convert the price in USD to Bitcoin. Click continue to go to the next step.

Please note: if you reside in an area not supported for instant credit card buying, you will be presented with a message advising you of this. If this happens, you can purchase Bitcoin through another Bitcoin exchange via this list.

The next page will be the billing page, where you will enter in all your credit card billing information so you can submit your payment to purchase Bitcoin. Most major credit cards, including VISA and MasterCard are accepted. Once you go through the steps entirely, the payment process is completed – that’s it, you purchased your first Bitcoin! Easy, right? You are now a Bitcoiner!

What happens next?

After the payment is processed, the amount of Bitcoin you purchased will be sent directly to your Bitcoin wallet address you provided earlier. Processing is typically completed within an hour, but sometimes can take longer than that depending your credit card company and the Bitcoin transaction confirmation time. An email will be sent to the email address you provided to confirm along with the transaction details.

After you have received the Bitcoin to your wallet address, you can do whatever you want with it. You can hold it as a speculative asset or you can spend it different places and get special deals, such as Purse.io or buy exclusive apparel, art, stickers, and other merchandise on the Bitcoin.com Store.
