Here’s a list and brief review of the different Bitcoins sellers that take credit card for Bitcoin:
Buy Bitcoins with Credit Card:
You can buy up to $150 by credit card per day without verification.
If you want to buy more than this, you can go through their verification process. Level 1 verification is really easy and will allow you to buy up to $10,000 with your credit card.
Level 1 verification only requires you to upload a pic of 1 government-issued ID like a drivers license or passport.
Level 2 verification will allow you to buy up to $50,000 worth of BTC. To be verified for level 2 you’ll need to upload a second piece of government issued ID and a utility bill plus a pic of you holding your ID. However most people don’t want to buy this much Bitcoin and would be fine with a Level 1 verification – which is very easy to do in minutes.
Plus, unlike other exchanges, Coinmama verifies you very quickly. And once you’re verified, you’re ready to buy Bitcoins with your credit card.
You can buy up to $300 a day ($1000 a month) on your Credit Card with no verification.
If you want to buy more, you’ll need to go up a level and get verified.
Once verified at this level, you can buy up to $10,000 a day or $100,000 a month. The verification process is a little more involved than Coinmama.
You have to fill out your personal information (name, address, birthdate, etc.) and upload one form of government-issued ID like a passport or drivers licence. Then you’ll also need to upload a selfie of you holding your ID as well as a document showing proof of residency like a recent utility bill or bank statement.
Once that is done you’re ready to go. And while it’s a bit more involved, the prices on CEX are pretty decent so it might be worthwhile to buy bitcoins with your credit card here as well.
Indacoin sells Bitcoin all over the world in Euros or US dollars. You can buy from anywhere in the world with your credit card and you can choose which currency (Euro or US) you want to be charged in.
Indacoin has some of the best limits for credit cards as well although you will start out slowly.
You have a $50 limit for the first transaction, $100 for the second transaction (available after 4 days of your initial purchase) and $500 after 7 days of the first buy.
The total limit for the first month will be $5000 and then no limits at all – which is excellent – especially considering there is no verification process.

The only issue with Bitpanda is that in order to buy with your credit card, there is a fairly extensive verification process involving uploading your government issued ID and even in some cases a web video chat.
Once you’ve been verified however you can buy up to 15,000 Euro per day of BTC or other cryptocurrencies with your credit card.
If you don’t want to go through the verification process, you can still buy with a SEPA bank transfer. You’ll be limited to about 1000 – 1500 Euro per day.
You can buy up to £100/€135 without verification. But once you’ve done that, you’ll need to be verified which means uploading proof of identity like a drivers license or passport and proof of residence like a utility bill or bank statement.
Once you’re verified you can buy more Bitcoins using your Visa however there will still be limits depending on your buying history. The fees for buying with your Visa are 5%. If you want lower fees you can always purchase with a bank transfer or SEPA transfer.

The downside of Coinbase is that they’re having more and more problems with payments not going through, people not getting their Bitcoins and absolutely horrible customer service.
