Where & How To Buy Ripple (XRP) Cryptocurrency From? – 2022 Top List

How to buy Ripple

When it comes to the cryptocurrency market cap, the top five needs no introduction.

And if you see, out of the top 10, Ripple was the least talked about crypto. It was perhaps because it is a crypto specifically for banks, and you know that banks and cryptos don’t go hand in hand.

Nevertheless, Ripple has defied all odds and grown over 18000% since January 2017

Ripple, also known as XRP, can be bought from a number of exchanges and websites and can also be stored securely in some popular XRP wallets.

Here are top websites to buy Ripple:

  1. Bybit (For XRP margin trading)
  2. Binance (World-renowned exchange lets you convert BTC or other cryptos to XRP)
  3. CoinBase (Buy Ripple with Bank Account (ACH) or debit card). Supports users from USA.
  4. CEX.io (London based exchange lets you buy Instantly using a credit/debit card)
  5. Wazirx (India based exchange lets you buy XRP)

I am not going to talk much about the XRP wallets as we have discussed it in the past. However, here is the link to the article on XRP wallets for you to read.

Now that you know how to keep your XRP safe with the help of the aforementioned article, it makes sense to talk about where to buy your XRPs from.

Where To Buy  Ripple Cryptocurrency (XRP) From?

1. Binance

Binance Ripple

Binance is a fast-growing exchange which we discussed many times in detail. (Read: Binance review)

But for now, it is safe to say that Binance is also one of the cheapest exchanges to use if you are using Binance tokens to pay the exchange fee and also the best exchange to buy/sell crypto on the go given their user-friendly mobile app.

Below is a video guide on using Binance:

Ripple (XRP) can be bought and sold on Binance in following trade pair and the volume is also pretty decent for huge orders:

  • Supported XRP Pair: XRP/BTC, XRP/ETH

You need to transfer BTC or ETH and then exchange it for XRP. The process is the same as shown in the video above. If you don’t have access to Bitcoins, you can get it from Cex.io or CoinMama using a debit/credit card.

2. Huobi Pro

Huobi Pro

Huobi Pro is an international cryptocurrency exchange that originated in China but now has moved across the world to serve a maximum number of investors. It is based out of Singapore and has been operating in this space successfully for the last five years.

As we speak, it occupies the #3 spot on CoinMarketCap’s list of exchanges by volume and has 244 cryptocurrency pairs. Hence, needless to say, of this, you will never face liquidity problems on this exchange.

They also have mobile apps for both Android and iOS for users who want to trade cryptos on the go.

Their registration process is also pretty simple and straightforward, so go ahead and do the needful. Oh, and just so you know, the exchange fee is also pretty low. Have fun.

  • Supported XRP Pair: XRP/BTC, XRP/USDT

3. Changelly

Changelly is a product of the mining pool, MinerGate, which has a proven track record of consistently good products being put out into the crypto-space.

One of the best things about Changelly is that you don’t need to go through any lengthy verification or registration process. You just log in with your email ID (or any email ID) and start exchanging!

They charge a commission fee of 0.5% on each trade, which I think is minimal in exchange for the volatility and risk that they bear on behalf of their users. In addition to the commission, a miner’s fee is also paid by the user and is deducted directly from their crypto balance.

But all you need in order to buy from Changelly is a VISA/MasterCard (credit/debit card) or any Changelly-supported cryptocurrency and a wallet where you want to receive your new coins.

4. Bittrex


Bittrex is my personal favorite cryptocurrency exchange with more than 200 crypto coins to choose from, including Ripple.

It handles one of the largest BTC trading volumes out of all the exchanges in the world and charges a standard 0.25% for trading on their platform.

To get started with Bittrex, you need to register and log in through your email ID, but to withdraw funds, you need to do a KYC by submitting your identification documents and phone number, as well as enabling two-factor authentication for higher limits.

The good thing about Bittrex is the fact that the account verification process is very quick.

You can visit Bittrex and open a Bittrex account by following this official step by step guide here.

  • Supported XRP Pair: XRP/BTC, XRP/USTD, XRP/ETH

5. Bitfinex

Bitfinex is the largest Bitcoin exchange with most volume for BTC/USD pair. It was also one of the pioneers in supporting Ripple cryptocurrency for its users.

With the second highest volume in XRP, liquidity is never a problem for this exchange and user interface is also rather simple to understand.

Their registration process, however, is quite lengthy and takes time. It typically takes 15-20 business days after submitting valid ID proof before you’re accepted into the platform. To get started on Bitfinex, you need to registerverify your ID, and authenticate yourself.

And when you get bored with the web version or want to trade on-the-go, you can use Bitfinex’s Android and iOS mobile apps.

  • Supported XRP Pair: XRP/BTC, XRP/USD

6. Kraken

Based out of San Francisco, Kraken handles the most volume in EUR currency and is one of the largest Bitcoin/Altcoin exchanges in the United States. Read Kraken review to learn more about it.

The registration process is quite straightforward but it can take up to days because of the recent surge in demand for cryptocurrencies.

Also, they were pioneers in supporting the Ripple cryptocurrency.

Even though Kraken is in the second largest exchange that has the most volume of Ripple for Euro pairs, it also supports others:

  • Supported XRP Pair: XRP/EUR, XRP/BTC, XRP/USD

7. ShapeShift


ShapeShift is one of the easiest ways to get your favorite cryptos because it is quick, reliable and very user-friendly. Also, you need not do any registration or KYC to start using ShapeShift!

As of now, there are more than 50 cryptocurrencies (including Ripple) available on ShapeShift which can be exchanged between one another.

If you wish to buy Ripple on ShapeShift, you need just two things:

  1. Your Ripple address where you would like to get your Ripple tokens.
  2. Some bitcoins/altcoins to exchange for Ripple.

For the step-by-step process of exchanging other cryptocurrencies for Ripple, see our guide on ShapeshiftThough this guide is for exchanging ETH for BTC, the process is the same to buy Ripple.

Conclusion- Best ways to invest in Ripple Cryptocurrency

I have listed the top 7 websites from where you can buy Ripple coins (XRP). Never use these exchanges as your wallets to store a significant amount of Ripple in it because such centralized exchanges are always prone to threats.

If you are someone who is a serious buyer and HODLer of Ripple, I would recommend you to get Ledger Nano X hardware wallet which will ensure that you stay in total control of all of your coins.

Note: Also know that whatever platform you choose to use, you will be required to deposit 20XRP to start with. This 20 XRP is a one time charge that you pay for using that particular public address.

    I still have issues buying XRP from my end. I have tried Bitsane, Gatehub and few others…

        I am registered with Bitstamp. So it’s good or bad?? and where and how i can buy XRP please help me.

  2. Thank you for the article. A couple of weeks ago, I used Changelly to buy Ripple. Changelly received the bitcoin and did the exchange fairly quickly (just an hour or two). However, it then took 4 days for the Ripple to reach my wallet. I use Binance now – doing the exchange and transfer separately seems to work better.

  3. I really appreciate all of your information here – thank you! Can I transfer XRP directly from Bitrexx or Kraken to a nano wallet??? I’m still a little confused on how to make that transfer. I’ve been trying to set up a Kraken account for a long time so I can purchase XRP but their verification feature is still disabled so I will now try to sign up with another exchange.

      1. unfortunately Bittrex has halted new sign ups and Kraken has disabled their verification process so I still have not found a way to purchase XRP, would you have any other suggestions???? Thank you in advance for your advice.

  5. g

    I’ve read so much info that I’m only more confused. Where can I find a simple step by step easy way to buy ripple with usd and what’s a safe place to store them right away. I should point out my computer skills are average at best

    1. Try the ShapeShift thing at #4 it is the easiest but try only if you have the patience to wait for your funds. All links are below to help you out.

  6. k

    Most of the foreign exchanges don’t support indian Mobile number. So I couldn’t register on any of poloneix, bittrex, binance etc.
    Any solution to this?

    1. I didn’t face any such issues. Moreover, now only Kucoin and YoBit are accepting registrations. register Now before they also stop taking users.

  7. b

    Hello! can you add more websites to the list? It seems that all these websites are either too overcrowded that they have halted accepting new registrations or are blocked in specific states (shapeshift in New York). It is kind of ridiculous tbh.

    1. Kushares and Poloniex and YoBit are still functional, IMO, But I think you will not find XRP there. This happening because of too much traffic.

  8. I do have both on Coinbase, so use GateHub to exchange (instead of changelly?) and then drop on a wallet? I am waiting for a nano but don’t have one yet

  9. M


    1. The best cold storage wallet for XRP is definitely Ledger. You should buy this from official site only just to be cautious. For Exchange, you can use Gate.io which is probably the best solution after Binance (Registration closed/limited) to get XRP. Do let us know what did you do and how you purchased XRP.

    This ia a very informative article. Well done! In addition to that I would like to add two cents of mine.

    Not one of these places is accepting new users, making it impossible to do anything. Work around for that??

    can anyobody suggest me, the approved website or application where I can buy a ripple?

    I’m looking for free transnational website .(No charges or buying or sell)

  13. e

    I want to buy XRP. My friend told me to buy from eToro. Is it good and safe to buy from there?
    Thank you

  14. Sudhir. I follow your blog and email. I use Coinbase–only good for Bitcoin, Etherum and Litecoin. I want an account with Bittrex (your favorite) to access to Ripple and more but they are only accepting Corporate and Select Invitees, Can you help me with this? Thank you!

    1. Unfortunately, they are doing this that’s why I will recommend you to use Binance, a much superior exchange with robust mobile apps

  15. After reading this post, I tried to set up an account with Kraken. He is how my experience went.

    I waited two months for them to even look into giving me a ‘tier 3’ account. Which is the minimum you need through them to wire transfer funds and begin trading if you are new.

    To get tier 3, you have to scan a bill, scan a government issued id, write a note saying that you want to trade online (I’m not sure why this one is) and take a picture with all three with a date stamped on them. The photos are the easy part.. getting everything to be 100% compliant with their request, pictures must be with the orientation upright, not cropped but no whitespace, on a black background… you get the point.
    – A bit extreme but maybe they are super concerned with security and someone in HR thought this would be a good idea.

    Once I was finally contacted they told me that my license was not exactly upright, not joking I was maybe 3-5 degrees off at most. I fixed it and waited 2 more days, which I was contacted and they told me that my photo was cropped and I needed to do it again. Aggravated because my id is not 8″x10″ and I did not know how to comply with the request, I scanned it again at an extremely high resolution and cropped out the white space. This time my picture was too large! Well, this kind of treatment went on five times! I asked to speak with a supervisor and I was ignored for almost 2 weeks.

    Bottom line up front: Kraken is unprofessional and should be removed from your list altogether as that judgment reflects upon this blog.

    I will try the next one you mentioned and hope for a better outcome.

    Ripple is up by about 395.5% since September 2017! A short-term retracement in such a volatile market should be considered normal. If you are looking to lower your investment risk, one should take a systematic investment plan approach by buying a certain pre-determined amount at a regular interval (weekly, monthly, quarterly, etc.). Since you are a regular investor, your money fetches more units when the price is low and lesser when the price is high. During the volatile period, it may allow you to achieve a lower average cost per unit.

  17. Hello,sudhir khatwani this is a really good article for buying ripple,i prefere binance when i want to buy ripple from BTC,otherwise whenever i buy ripple from sragy.com as they have INR/XRP market,where you can buy ripple with indian rupee.

  18. H

    Having all these exchanges gives us many options to choose from. Checking all the exchanges i stumbled upon a new exchange- bitbawa.com . They are new in market but they are offering a variety of crypto currencies to trade. Definitely worth a try.

  20. J

    Do you have any comment or opinion on Uphold? I started my crypto investing there and have no had no problems yet. That said, the more I invest the more I have been reevaluating to make sure my money is in the most solid online exchange company out there. Thoughts?

  21. L

    Interested in buying etherium and ripple. Looked at a number of exchanges and clear there are pros and cons to all. What exchange would best satisfy my overall concerns:
    1. Relatively quick withdrawl my US dollars. Read some real horror stories here.
    2. Takes both debit card and bank transfers to fund without long delay
    3. US based. My credit union had concerns on wires or use of my debit card for non us
    4. Low trading, transaction, and method of funding fees
    5. High volume seems to be an indicator of safety and liquidity. Is it?
    6. What major concern am I not listing
