Buying Cryptocurrency Using (Visa) Debit Card

I currently use BTC Markets to purchase cryptocurrency and one of the reasons is because they accept BPAY. But when the price fluctuates a lot like what is currently happening I wish I can use (Visa) debit card to buy cryptocurrency. Anyone knows where I can do that?

Note that I deliberately say debit card because I thought there might be some cash advances charge if we use credit card while with debit card the money is actually readily available.

I know there are some P2P exchanges that let us to do that (even with Paypal and gift cards) but I would rather to deal with centralised exchange if possible.

Any comment/feedbacks will be appreciated. thanks.

    Just keep x dollars in your Bec account and pounce when the time is right

      do you meant BTCMarkets account? That's something that I am not too comfortable doing because we all know that all exchanges have risk to be hacked.

      •  

        That’s the risk you take, and only option afaik.

        Why not just poli pay

          They don't do POLI I believe.

          I'm glad everyone's moving away from POLi.
          It gives me shivers to give my internet banking username/pw to a script coded by a 3rd party company to log in to my internet banking and initiate a transfer. It clearly violates the T&Cs of most major banks and there's no protection what so ever if the said script steals your money.

        Isn't BTCmarkets AUD held in escrow?

        Worried about security of money yet buying made up currency?

        Interesting…

    Coinjar does poli, acx.io might be worth a look, I've been hearing a bit about coinspot lately too.

    Coinbase will let you use a visa for it. They are a US site and charge a premium for the service but it usually works out even with BTCmarkets price.

    Buying limits usually start quite low at around $250 per week, but make a couple of buys and it'll go up.

    A lot of them allow you to deposit at a newsagent and it's instant.

    Coinbase does.

  •  

    I'm currently starting a service to do just that. You can sign up to the waitlist at kwicto.com, intending to launch mid feb or so! :D

    Which exchange is regarded as the most stable / safe?

  •  

    Just signed up with coinbase … pending verification

    I use IQOPTION.COM but it only lists 14 cryptos. (Along with Forex, Options etc).
    My first and lowest buy in was USD$45.00 to test the waters, they charged USD$4.50 commission. I used MCard Debit to buy Ripple with and when you withdraw they will only payback via the card you purchased with. Transaction times are slow, around 3 hours to buy and 2-3 days to get the money back into your bank account when you withdraw.

    Just want to give some updates guys … I have made my purchase and withdrawal on Coinbase and so far so good.
