Just for general idea, the reason that buying Bitcoins with your credit card isn’t available all around the world is based chargeback issues that most bitcoin sellers wish to avoid. So many exchange companies need to protect themselves in order to offer this service and not all of them have the advanced technology to do so.

Before I explain the different methods one word of warning. NEVER leave your purchased Bitcoins at an exchange or a website. Once you purchase your Bitcoins from any of the exchange company explained below to move them into your Bitcoin wallet as fast as you can. So make sure to get this step out of the way before buying your Bitcoins.



Buy Bitcoins with a Credit Card at Coinmama



Pros: Good support, respectable company, fast service

Cons: Limited states in the US

Overall rating: A

Coinmama specializes in Bitcoin purchases through a credit card method. They take a premium fee for their services but they do not limit you to the number of Bitcoins that you can buy. Bitcoins are sent immediately after your purchase has been confirmed and their support is pretty responsive.

 



From Coinmama’s website you can choose the amount of Bitcoins, you’d like to buy/sell. You can enter the price either in BTC, USD, EUR or choose one of the offered packages they offer on their homepage.



Once finished, click “Buy BTC” and you will be taken to the sites registration page. you have to fill out your initial details you will need to go through additional verification by submitting a photo ID document during the registration process. Verification is usually pretty quick (it took me just 1hours 30minute to get verified). You can also buy up to $500 USD without going through the verification process. With verification, you can buy $5,000/daily and up to $30,000/month.

Once verified successfully you can buy Bitcoins easily with your credit card through the simple interface on the website. If you verified your address I suggest you use Visa or Mastercard since it’s the fastest option available.

The next step for you will be for you to enter your own Bitcoin address where your bitcoin will be sent to. Unlike other exchanges, Coinmama does not allow keeping your Bitcoins in their wallet (which is pretty good). This means you’ll need to get a Bitcoin wallet before continuing the purchase.
The last step will be to enter your payment details and place your order.
