Now that Bitcoin is mainstream and Bitcoin exchanges have advanced fraud detection systems, it is possible to buy bitcoins instantly with a debit card.

There are 30+ exchanges that accept debit card payments in exchange for bitcoins. We, however, do not want to overload you with information so on this page we will highlight the top five debit card exchanges which cover almost all countries.


Coinbase is one of the most well-funded and biggest global Bitcoin exchanges. It operates in 33 countries. United States, Canadian, European (not Germany!) and Australian residents can all purchase bitcoins with their debit cards. European residents should be aware that a 3D secure debit card is required.


Coinmama is another huge Bitcoin exchange that operates globally. It supports all countries besides the obviously sanctioned ones (North Korea, etc.). It only supports 10 US states at this time making Coinbase or Circle (outlined below) better options for US residents.

You can buy less than $150 worth with no verification using your debit card.


Coinhouse is similar to Coinbase but has slightly higher fees. It will charge you 6-10% per purchase but is a reputable Bitcoin broker you can trust. It accepts 3D secure debit cards in Europe and includes Germany.


We like BitPanda because they have a lot of payment options and good fees. They are available to most of Europe!
