Many of us are asking ourselves this questions each day – where can I buy bitcoin cheaply, with a credit card?
Credit cards mean higher fees, but come with the comfort of instant transactions, without the need to wait for wire transfers to reach their destination.
Are the fees really so high? It depends.
We have decided to check google for the phrase “buy bitcoin with credit card” to find the most popular services.
We took 20 first results (2 sites of google search results). Only 10 of them were actually services selling bitcoins; other were websites listing other solutions.
We made our test on 2018-03-08 17:40. It took 8 minutes to collect all data from all websites.
Obviously prices change every minute so all rates on the website are shown for 2018-03-08 17:40.
Don’t just trust us and check prices on your own. Please just be sure to check for hidden fees (we found one service where you need to calculate fees on your own – bitcoin.com, but they are not hidden).
How much can we buy for $200 and 200 Euro?
We decided to check how much we could buy for 200 US Dollar and 200 Euro (because some websites don’t allow to buy for just 100 USD).
We took price from http://preev.com/ as reference price, to calculate the fees of each exchange.
For 200 Euro, we could get between 0,0242699 and 0,0236 BTC. It’s a huge difference of 28%!
For 200 Dollar, we could get between 0,0197048 and 0,016278 BTC. It’s a difference of 21%!
The best website is charging 2,56% fee (EUR) and 2,92% (USD).
So the fees can be really small, but only if you buy from a trusted source. Otherwise, you could pay a whoopping 24,59% fee!

The definitive winner is BuyCoinNow.com – with 2,56% fee (EUR) and 2,92% fee (USD).
This is a really good price which means you won’t even notice the cost of the credit card usage.A very nice feature of BuyCoinNow is frozen the price in the moment of click “BUY” button – even if the payment takes longer, you get the promised amount of bitcoin. That’s why, you can be sure to get the exact amount. They have no hidden fees (be careful with bitcoin.com – they show prices without fees, but the fees are mentioned on the website).
Other good services are Coingate (EUR) and Coinmama (USD). We can recommend them too as services with reasonable fees.
You can get your bitcoins even cheaper, for example by using a bitcoin exchange.
On www.coindeal.com you can get 0,02498126 BTC for 200 Euro (2,9% more than via buycoinnow.com), which is even better than the price on preev.com. The downside is that you need to send a wire transfer and wait 1, up to 2 working days. The price could obviously change till then.
