To buy and sell cryptocurrencies, you first need a euro balance. In this article we explain how to top up your balance.
- Go to your Portfolio.
- Click Deposit.
- Enter how much you would like to spend.
- Choose your Payment Method and continue.
- Complete the payment.
Are you paying with iDEAL, Bancontact, or credit card? Then you will see the amount almost immediately in your Portfolio.
If you pay by bank transfer, it may take a little longer before your euro balance is visible. A bank transfer is processed within 1-3 working days. Please note that banks usually do not process transactions on weekends and public holidays.
Is this the first time you are depositing from your bank account? Then it might take some time before you see your updated balance in BTC Direct. This is because we manually check the name of the bank account. Everything OK? Then you receive a confirmation and you can see your balance in your BTC Direct account.
