Blockchain Card Payment Flow - First Order

Buying Bitcoins from your Blockchain wallet is very easy! This article will guide you through the steps you'll need to follow to complete your First Card Order.

Important: complete ALL the steps in the payment flow! 

Choose Amount to Buy 

  • Log in to your wallet and click on 'BUY & SELL BITCOIN'. 

  • Enter the amount you want to buy, and you will get the equivalent in Bitcoin. 

  • Click on the 'Buy Bitcoin' button.

  • Select your country of residence from the drop-down menu and click on 'Continue'. 

  • An email will be sent to you to verify your email address.

  • Click on the verification link in that email.

  • Now go back to your Blockchain Wallet to continue your purchase.

  • You will be asked to accept Blockchain and Coinify’s 'Terms of Service' and 'Privacy Policy'.

  • After you have done this, click on 'Continue'.


Choose Payment Method

  • Click on 'Credit/Debit Card Transfer' and then on 'Continue'.

  • Proceed to check your order details and make sure you agree with all the amounts. Note that the 'Total Cost' will be the one charged to your card. 

  • Click on 'Confirm' to continue with the transaction and you will be redirected to the payment provider, iSignthis. 

  • Complete the fields with your card details - make sure you are entering the details as they appear on your credit card. You have the option to save them in case you want to use the same card for future transactions.

  • Once you have filled in all the fields, click on 'Pay Now' to start processing your transaction. Notice that up until now, you have had the option of clicking on 'Finish Later'  to pause the transaction and resume it later on. However, if you click on 'Pay Now', the order will be sent for processing and your card will be charged.

  • Next, you will be redirected to the 3D Secure Verification window where you will have to enter the code sent by your bank to your phone via SMS. Once you have done this, click on 'Confirm'. (Note: some banks use different channels for sending the 3D Secure code. Make sure you check the channel you usually use).

  • Continue to Phone Number Registration


Phone Number Registration

This step is also part of the purchasing process, so be sure to complete it!

  • Select your cell phone number's country code from the drop-down menu by clicking on the flag. 

  • Then, enter your cell phone number; one that allows you to receive international SMS. 

  • Click on 'Send Passcode' and allow a few minutes for the code to be sent via SMS. Be careful not to click this too many times, as you have only 3 attempts to request the passcode.

  • Enter the code sent to your phone in the available field and click on 'Register Mobile'. 

Order Details and Order History

  • Now you can see your transaction's current status in your 'Order History', which you can find by clicking on 'Buy & Sell Bitcoin' from the main menu on the left in your Blockchain Wallet.

  • In Order History you can review your Order Details, which includes your Order ID - also called a Trade ID.

  • Your order will remain in review for a few moments until all the information is verified. Once the information is verified, the order status will change to 'Purchased'. 

  • Bitcoins will be delivered to your wallet in a just few moments.
