Cryptopay makes buying and selling bitcoins easy

There are two main options to buy bitcoins and other crypto on Cryptopay: 

  1. Make a deposit with a bank card (here are the guides for iOS and Android). It's quick and easy and requires no additional actions, but costs 4%.

  2. Instantly exchange the funds you have in your account for just 1% in the iOS app or Android app. But before you can do that, you need to put them there from another crypto wallet (aka make a cryptocurrency deposit in your iOS or Android app) or make a bank deposit.

Both options are quite useful depending on the situation. If you'd like to buy crypto here and now, we advise you to make a card deposit. But if you can afford to wait for a few hours (for UK bank accounts) or a couple of days (for SEPA ones), you can save up some money by making a bank transfer and exchanging your pounds or euros for crypto.

In compliance with the Financial Promotion Act which came into force on 8 October, 2023, at 8 AM UTC, some account functionality is temporarily limited for the Cryptopay customers with verified UK residency.
