This step-by-step guide will walk you through the whole process of buying cryptocurrencies with either MasterCard or Visa. Your first purchase at the dedicated page will usually take up to an hour due to first-time verification procedures. 

However, consecutive purchases will not require you to verify the phone number, email and, in some cases, ID again, so the process will naturally get quicker the next time.

Also, the recent update now allows saving card details as part of the Simplex checkout flow, which means that returning users only need to enter their CVV to complete a transaction!

Here’s what you need to be prepared:

Helpful hint: If you have the option of using a debit card, there is a higher success rate that the transaction will be approved by the banks.

Step #2: Provide payment information

Enter your credit/debit card information, personal details and billing information. Make sure your card details match the billing address. It is also crucial that you include a correct phone number and email address as in later steps, you will receive verification codes.

In this window, you can also see the amount your card will be charged in selected local currency. The purchase will appear as Buyeglcom-Simplex or Simplex_Paybis in your card statement. Check the box (if you agree to terms and privacy policy), and then click Continue.

Note that you will not be billed just yet – your card will be checked for the required purchase value, and you will then have to proceed to ID verification.

Step #3: Verify your credentials

You will now have to verify your email address and phone number. You only need to do it once – if you intend to make more purchases in the future, you won’t have to provide this information again.

Check your inbox for an email confirmation link, and expect a text message with a 4-digit code that you will have to enter on-screen, or a phone call if you indicated a landline number. When you confirm your email address and phone number, the red X marks will turn into check marks, and you can proceed by clicking Continue.

Possible options: passport (double-page), national ID card (both sides), or driver’s license (both sides).quick kyc buy btc
