Blockchain Wallet Card Payment Flow

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 Card Order.

1. Choose the Amount to Buy 

  • Log in to your wallet and click on 'Buy & Sell'. 

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

  • Click 'Continue'.

2. Choose Payment Method

  • Click on 'Credit/Debit'.

  • 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. Kindly note that the 'payment fee' is not the same as the 'transaction fee'. Please read more about transaction fees here

  • Read and accept 'Terms of Service'.
  • Click on 'Submit' to continue with the transaction and you will be redirected to the payment window.

  • Complete the fields with your card details – make sure you are entering the details as they appear on your credit card.

  • Once you have filled in all the fields, click on 'Continue' to start processing your transaction. Notice that you also have the option of clicking on 'Finish Later' to pause the transaction and resume it later on. However, if you click on 'Continue' 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).

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' from the main menu on the left in your Blockchain Wallet.

  • In your Order History, you can review your Order Details, which includes your Order 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 'Completed Buy. 

  • Bitcoins will be delivered to your wallet shortly.


After your first card order is completed, you will enter a 7-day waiting security check period before you can place your second card order. Read more about it here.

The exchange rate which is given when a card order is created expires in 15 minutes.
