  • Open the Buy/Sell page
  • Choose a crypto pack and click Buy
  • Enter your card number and card expiry date

You’ll have the crypto you purchased on your CEX.IO balance within minutes.

We’ve prepared a detailed guide to help you become a crypto owner without hassle.

1. Register an account

You’ll need to provide your email address, country of residence, first and last name, and date of birth. US residents should also pass Identity verification before making a purchase.

To secure your account and funds, we strongly recommend enabling 2FA.

2. Verify your account

As a regulated cryptocurrency exchange platform, CEX.IO is required to identify its users. Identity Verification helps to prevent the creation and use of fraudulent accounts on CEX.IO. Follow our detailed guide to pass verification smoothly.

3. Open the Buy/Sell page

On the Buy/Sell page, you’ll see packs of crypto in commonly purchased amounts at set prices. These prices are calculated at the current market rate and frozen for 120 seconds to mitigate the risks connected with price fluctuations.

Click the How it works? button to get familiar with Instant Buy service and conditions.
