We've put together these detailed step by step instructions to help you get started in as painless a way as possible.

Where to buy Bitcoin if you are new to crypto currencies

We recommend Coinbase, they are the largest Bitcoin broker in the world with more than 40 million customers worldwide so you can be confident in their service. When you register you will have to verify your account during the setup process but it's easy to do and of course you only ever have to do it once.

TIP: Buy at least $100 of Bitcoin as your first purchase and you'll receive an extra $10 worth of Bitcoin as a FREE Bonus.

Buying Bitcoin with a credit card through Coinbase

Step 1: Create a free account at Coinbase* (link opens in new window)

Step 2: Click your avatar in the top right corner of your coinbase account (1) and a menu will open, click on the "SETTINGS" link in the menu, then click "Payment methods (2)" and finally click "Add payment method (3)"

The add account screen will open as seen in the screenshot below. Note that the available options will vary depending on which country you are in. 

Start by adding a Credit/Debit card and then add a bank account as well because by doing that you will not only increase your limits but once fully verified you will then be able to withdraw cash direct to your bank account from Coinbase.

Step 3: Click the "Trade" button at the top of the page and the Buy window will open. Enter the amount that you wish to purchase, check that you are buying Bitcoin and that your Credit or Debit card is selected and continue to "Preview Buy"

You'll then see the "Buy now" button and the full breakdown of the purchase so go ahead and click "Buy Now"

You'll get a confirmation onscreen and via email that your purchase is complete and the Bitcoin is available in your BTC wallet.
