Where to Buy Bitcoin?

  • Purchase bitcoins online with a credit card, debit card, or bank transfer.
  • Acquire bitcoins from a Bitcoin ATM near you.
  • Buy bitcoins with cash locally or via cash deposit.
  • Convert PayPal to Bitcoin online.

The above was just a brief overview of where you can buy bitcoin. Now, let's get into the details.

In order to buy bitcoins, you’ll need to exchange your local currency, like Dollars or Euros, for bitcoin. Here’s an overview of the 4 most common payment methods:

1. Credit or Debit Card

best bitcoin walletCredit/debit cards are the most common way to pay online. So, it's really no surprise that many people want to buy bitcoins this way.

Why buy bitcoin with a credit/debit card?

  • Credit cards are a payment method most people are familiar with; probably the easiest way to buy bitcoins online
  • Delivery of bitcoins is instant once initial verification is complete

Why NOT buy bitcoin with a credit/debit card?

  • High fees; if you're patient and not in a rush to buy then use a bank transfer for lower fees
  • Not a private way to buy; your ID will be required to buy with a credit card

A few places to buy bitcoins online with a credit card are:

Bank Account or Bank Transfer

What are Bitcoin ATMs good for?

  • Can be more private since in most cases no personal information is required
  • If you have an ATM in your area it can be a convenient and fast way to buy coins

What are Bitcoin ATMs bad for?

  • Privacy comes at a cost; Bitcoin ATMs often have a 5-15% premium above market rate

PayPal

There is no way to directly buy bitcoins with PayPal. Under PayPal’s terms and conditions merchants are not allowed to sell bitcoins for PayPal.

I really recommend not buying bitcoins with PayPal. The fees are really high. Chances are that your PayPal is connected to your credit card or bank account, which can be used to buy at much lower fees.

If you still need help, I hope this FAQ will help to answer any remaining questions.

When is the Right Time to Buy?

As with any market, nothing is for sure. Bitcoin is traded 24/7 and its price changes every second.

Bitcoin's price in US dollars during 2015 and 2016. It's impossible to say when to buy.

Why Does Buying Bitcoin Take So Long?

Long wait times are usually a problem with existing payment systems, not with Bitcoin itself.

Bitcoin transactions only take about 10 minutes to confirm. Bank transfers in the U.S., for example, can take up to five days to complete.

Bitcoin transactions can be confirmed as quickly as 10 minutes; it’s rare to experience a delay longer than one hour.

This means that a merchant can’t release bitcoins to a customer until five days have passed unless they're willing to take on risk.

Can You Sell Bitcoins?

Yes, of course! Most exchanges that let you buy bitcoins also let you sell (for a fee of course).

Why Do I Need to Upload my ID for Some Exchanges?

This is due to SALE PHOENIX MODEL - EXTRA 330SC 30-33cc ARF RC model [PH113] - GALAXY RC (KYC) laws which require exchanges to record the real world identity of their clients.

Can Anyone Buy Bitcoin?

Bitcoin requires no permission to use or buy.

You will have to check the legality of Bitcoin in your country. In Futaba CGY750 3 Axis Flybarless Control Gyro!

Should I Buy Physical Bitcoins?

Physical bitcoins are physical, metal coins with a Bitcoin private key embedded inside.

We recommend that you stay away from physical bitcoins unless you’re a numismatist.

While physical coins sound like a good idea, they force you to trust the honesty of the creator of the coin. The creator could create two copies of the private key.

Unless you immediately open and withdraw the digital bitcoins from your physical bitcoin, the creator could at any time steal the funds it contains.

Can I Buy Partial Bitcoins?

Ninco 50148 Porsche 911 GT1 Road Car, mint unused

Yes, of course!

Each bitcoin is divisible to the 8th decimal place, meaning each bitcoin can be split into 100,000,000 pieces. Each unit of bitcoin, or 0.00000001 bitcoin, is called a satoshi.

Most exchanges let you buy as little as $5 worth of bitcoins at a time.

Why Should I Buy Bitcoin Instead of Mining?

A long time ago anyone could mine bitcoins on their computer at home. Today, only specialized computer hardware is powerful enough to do this.

Think about it like this:

Should you buy gold or mine gold? Well, to mine gold you need big powerful machines, a lot of time, and money to buy the machinery. This is why most people just purchase gold online or from a broker.

So Bitcoin is no different.

You should just buy some if you want coins without trying to mine.

Do I need a Bitcoin Account Before Buying?

With Bitcoin, there are not really accounts.

Instead, you should have a Bitcoin wallet. If you want to store bitcoins, then a wallet is where you keep them.

In Bitcoin these wallets are not called an account but a wallet functions almost the same way. The only difference is you are responsible for the security if your wallet rather than placing the security in the hands of a bank or trust.

How do I check if I received a Bitcoin payment?

Why Would Someone Even Want to Buy Bitcoins?

People also use Bitcoin to buy stuff online. Big companies like Microsoft, Dell, Newegg and Overstock all accept bitcoins.

Bitcoin is also very unique compared to other markets in that it trades 24 hours a day and never stops. Most stock markets only open on weekdays from 9 AM to 5 PM. So many traders buy and sell bitcoins because it is a fun and fast market to trade.

Can I Buy Bitcoin Stock?

Bitcoin itself is not a stock despite it functioning somewhat like one. You can’t buy bitcoins through a traditional stock fund and instead have to buy bitcoins yourself. This may change in the future if a Bitcoin ETF ever gets approved.

What Happens When you Purchase Bitcoins?

Bitcoins are actually just secret digital codes. When you buy bitcoins, the seller is using a wallet to transfer the ownership of the coins to you. Once your purchase is complete, the codes are now owned by you and not the seller.

Avoiding Bitcoin Scams: Don't Lose Money!

Scalextric C3309 Caterham R600 Jon Barnes 2013 Magnificent Seven Series NMIB

I've been using Bitcoin for 3+ years. I've never fallen victim to a single scam. Follow the tips explained here and you'll greatly reduce your chances of losing money.

Jordan Tuwiner Founder, Buy Bitcoin Worldwide

There are many scams related to Bitcoin. Scammers target new Bitcoiners and less tech-savvy users. Follow these basic rules in order to avoid Bitcoin scams:

Research

Study your intended exchange and make sure it’s trustworthy. Search forums like Reddit for the experiences of other users.

You can also use SCALEXTRIC C1369 International Super GT 1 32 BOX SET NEW about certain exchanges. If you don’t find your intended exchange listed on this site, extra caution and research is advised as it may be a scam!

Check Ratings

If you’re using a peer-to-peer exchange like LocalBitcoins or Wall of Coins, check the seller’s feedback. If most of their feedback is positive, your trade is more likely to go through without issues. If a seller has lots of negative feedback, it’s best to simply stay away and find a more reliable seller.

Use Escrow

Many scammers will try an approach like this:

“Send me bitcoins, and once I get the bitcoins I’ll pay you on PayPal!”

Don’t ever agree to a trade like this. Bitcoin payments are irreversible, so if you send first the scammer can simply not pay you and keep their bitcoins.

PayPal can't force the scammer to pay either, due to the pseudonymous nature of Bitcoin which doesn’t record the identity of a payment’s sender or recipient. This would leave you with no way to get your bitcoins back.

Stay Away from Bitcoin investments

Any service that claims to pay interest on bitcoins or increase your bitcoins is likely extremely risky or an outright scam. If it sounds too good to be true, stay away.

Be Careful with Altcoins

What are altcoins? Altcoins are cryptocurrencies other than Bitcoin.

Altcoins are traded globally on hundreds of exchanges. Avoid throwing money into coins which are experiencing a sudden and dramatic spike in price and volume. Such moves, especially in insignificant coins with otherwise thin volume and flat price action, are likely to crash fast.

Secure your Coins

Don't store coins on Bitcoin exchanges! Bitcoin users have lost over $1 billion worth of bitcoins in exchange hacks and scams.

Scalextric Rare Vintage Set Complete C664 Porsche Le Mans MEGA RARE Vintage 70's Retro toy TCR Racing Scalectrix Mountain Hazard + 2 cars Founder, Buy Bitcoin Worldwide

Your bitcoins are only safe if you store them in a wallet that is controlled by YOU!

Here are two examples where users got screwed by leaving bitcoins with a third party:

So, do yourself a favor:

Get yourself a Bitcoin wallet and control your own coins. For large amounts of bitcoins, we recommend cryptocurrency & Bitcoin hardware wallets. Hardware wallets are small, offline devices that store your bitcoins offline and out of reach from hackers and malware.

Why? It's pretty simple:

  • Hardware wallets are the easiest way to securely store bitcoins and easy to backup
  • Less margin for error; setup is easy even for less technical users
