CEX is a UK-based exchange. It supports buying/selling of BTC and ETH. CEX has earned quite a bit of respect in the cryptocurrency space and has been operating since 2013.
It also supports the instant purchase of Ethereum (ETH) via Visa/MasterCard credit and debit card.
You can buy Ethereum by following these simple steps:
- Register at CEX.
- Go to Cards.
- Configure your credit/debit card.
- Verify your credit/debit card
- Select the amount of Ethereum to buy/sell.
- Exchange your currency for Ethereum.
The card verification might take 24-48 hours, but after that, you can buy ETH instantly. That’s why we recommend you that you keep your card configured in CEX even if you don’t have immediate plans to buy ETH.
Don’t worry, your card details will be safe and secure with CEX.
And if you are doing card verification for the first time, it might look wired to you when you need to take a selfie with your card. So we need to give you a heads up: Just in case you send a low-quality selfie, the Compliance Officer may ask you to upload another selfie with better quality.
