Buying Bitcoin Shouldn’t Be So Hard

Finding the best place to buy cryptocurrency can be harder than you would expect. There are countless exchanges and products available, but they require long sign up periods, slow deposits, and high fees. Why can’t buying bitcoin be as simple as anything else you purchase online; just enter your payment information and call it a day?

How to Buy Bitcoin and Ethereum with Your Debit Card

If you’re new to crypto or an experienced user, the ShapeShift Platform makes it easy and intuitive to manage your assets. We wanted to take it one step further by offering a new, simple fiat onramp with competitive fees (3.5%) and almost instant delivery.

  1. Click “Buy Crypto” at the top of your dashboard — no verification needed.
  2. Click “Use Debit Card” and choose what cryptocurrency you want to buy.
  3. Enter your debit card information.
  4. Confirm your purchase & your crypto will be deposited within seconds.

Trade to Your Favorite Altcoins — For Free

Now that you have bitcoin or ETH you can trade it for any of the altcoins supported on the ShapeShift Platform. Thanks to the release of FOX Tokens, you can trade commission free. All users earn 100 FOX Tokens just by verifying their account, which unlocks $1,000 of free trades, every 30 days. Don’t just take our word for it, rest assured you’re getting the most competitive rate by comparing other top exchanges. Trading one coin for another is simple and only takes a few clicks of a button, making it easier than ever to diversify your portfolio.

Cryptocurrency Management Made Easy

The leading exchanges offer new users a seemingly easy way to get started in blockchain tech, but they are missing one essential feature — ownership over your crypto. We created our platform to provide the tools and conveniences you need paired with the ability to control your crypto. All of our supported wallets are self-custody, meaning you control your private keys, unlike large custodial exchanges. You can trade commission free, track your portfolio performance in real-time, and now buy crypto in a sleek, intuitive platform.

Get Started in Crypto is with ShapeShift

With a fast, easy way to purchase crypto, coupled with our powerful platform, there’s no need to go anywhere else. Get started today to experience the best way to buy crypto and manage your portfolio — the ShapeShift Platform.
