  3. CoinBase (Available in a few countries)
  4. Noones (Offers from many countries)
  5. Wirexapp (The best way & at the market rate and only for Europe and UK users)

How to buy Bitcoin with PayPal account

1. PayPal

If you are a user from USA, you can use official PayPal website or mobile app to buy Bitcoin. However, you should know that you can’t withdraw Bitcoin from your PayPal wallet, and you can use your Bitcoin to pay online on all the merchants who have integrated with PayPal checkout.

To use PayPal for buying Bitcoin, simply login to PayPal.com (Only for U.S. users), and you will see the option to buy crypto on PayPal.

Click on it, and you will get on the page where you can complete the purchase and buy Bitcoin using PayPal official app.

Click on buy, and accept the terms and conditions.

2. Coinbase (PayPal in Europe and U.S.A.)

Coinbase is a popular website that accepts PayPal as a payment method to purchase Bitcoin. This feature is available in the U.S.A, all major European countries, and in the U.K.

The interface of Coinbase is easy to use and beginner-friendly. Read how to buy bitcoin using Coinbase. Even if it’s your first time buying Bitcoin using PayPal, you will have no problem using the CoinBase. There is a limit of $25000/daily for buying via PayPal. However, you should know that buying Bitcoin via PayPal on Coinbase is the costliest due to the high fees, and not recommended.

3. Noones

This is another popular way for users like you & me to purchase Bitcoins using PayPal, Payoneer, Skrill, Gift cards to name a few. Noones is a listing and escrow service for sellers to trade on.

Vendors may also ask for ID for themselves before accepting your PayPal.

4. Buy Bitcoins using PayPal & WirexApp:

Wirexapp is one of the best ways for anyone who is looking to buy Bitcoins using PayPal on a consistent basis. This method would take 1-2 days for the first time & after that, it’s all instant.

Just follow the steps mentioned in this tutorial & then you will be able to use your PayPal funds to Buy Bitcoins. This method can be used for PayPal accounts within these countries:

  • To get started, you need a WirexApp account. Create an account here
  • When you create and verify your account, you get a free virtual visa card. (You can also order Physical visa card but for now, let’s focus on the fastest method).
  • To use this method you need to add a small amount ($3) to your virtual visa card from Wirexapp. This is important to add the card to your PayPal account.
  • Now, login to your PayPal account, Click on Money & Click on Add a card
Paypal Money

Click on Add a new card

Add a new card

Now here enter the virtual debit card detail you got from Wirexapp.

Add Debit or Credit Card

PayPal will ask you to confirm the new card. Click ‘Confirm my card’ and PayPal will begin a series of transactions to verify your card.  This is where your balance of $3 will be used (This will be reversed later). This is a standard practice by PayPal that they use to verify an account. It will then ask you to enter a PayPal Code.

Debit and Credit Cards

Now login to your Wirexapp account & under transaction you will find the confirmation code to verify your debit card.

Just confirm the code & you will see a success message like this.

Card Confirmation

Click on close & now you are all set to start purchasing Bitcoins using your PayPal money. Now all you need to do is, withdraw money from your PayPal account to linked Wirexapp debit card.

Withdraw Fund

Usually, this takes between 1-7 days for the fund to withdraw to your linked card. Once this is done, you can use Wirexapp interface to Purchase Bitcoins.

This has been one of the best ways for anyone who is looking to use their PayPal money for purchasing Bitcoins at market rate. All other methods usually cost you extra for Bitcoin purchases.

If you are in the countries listed above, use Wirexapp to get your first free virtual debit card (VISA powered) & use it to purchase Bitcoins using PayPal money.

    Hello Harsh,

    Thanks for sharing this valuable post. But I think charges of these sites are little bit more than Zebpay/Unocoin.

    why you create currency blog your shoutmeloud is already rocking in the field of tech, blog and so many other things

    1. Harsh Agrawal

      Because can’t really write about Blockchain and Fintech on ShoutMeLoud. Different topics altogether. I believe Blockchain/Crypto will become a major thing in future and youngsters like you and me should know how to use it. So, here comes CoinSutra along with ShoutMeLoud. 🙂

  9. QTMan

  10. Pritom Roy

    Hey Harsh!

  11. Sam

    Hi, nice blog and i’m loving this site. I have a newbie question. I have bought some Ether and starting to invest in altcoins like NEO, Ripple, IOTA etc. I know I can buy them on exchanges such as Bittrex, Binance etc by sending some Ether or Bitcoins. My questions are:

    (1) How do I convert them back to fiat currency? I’d assume I need to convert alts into Ether or Bitcoins?
    (2) If so, isn’t my profits really determined by how much the alt coins I had appreciated against Ether or Bitcoin?
    (3) Does it mean any investment in Alts have to be better than that of either bitcoin or Ether for it to make investment sense?

    Thanks in advance

    1. Sudhir Khatwani

      1) Convert it into BTC because BTC has the maximum liquidity for fiat pairs.
      2) Yes
      3) Strive to accumulate more on BTC and ETH percentage wise. For example you both something in 1000 Satoshi it is better to sell at more satoshi value. But many people do it in terms of USD so it depends on how you want to do it. profit margins can vary depending on various factors.

  17. Estar Michael

    Thanks for the wonderful information guys. I have been trying LocalBitcoins but most of the time the transaction gets cancelled wherein the seller directly reverts back stating they don’t want to do the trade with me. Is it because am new to the system? How can I improve my reputation on site?
