How do I buy cryptocurrency with a credit or debit card in Europe and the UK?

You can make a purchase with a credit or debit card if your card supports "3D Secure" (3DS). With this payment method, you will not have to pre-fund your account to place an order. You can purchase instantly without waiting for a bank transfer to complete. To see if your card supports 3DS, contact your credit/debit card provider directly.

Note: Coinbase no longer supports linking new credit cards and some card issuers are blocking digital currency purchases with existing credit cards. If you have a credit card linked already, your bank may charge additional fees for Coinbase credit card purchases. To avoid these fees, switch to a debit card or bank account.

We're also unable to support prepaid cards or other cards without an associated billing address.

All credit card and debit card payments are processed through Coinbase Payments for the UK and Coinbase Ireland for the rest of Europe.
