Hey, Musa Dumakude from Durban, South Africa here. On this page, I will show you How To Buy Bitcoins, Step-By-Step, click-by-click.
You can buy Bitcoins from different Bitcoin Exchanges, the steps are somewhat identical.
In this tutorial, I will be showing you how to buy Bitcoins from LocalBitcoins.com
Let’s get started…
How To Buy Bitcoins through LocalBitcoins.com
I will make the process of buying Bitcoins as easy as possible, so when it comes to buying Bitcoins, I have a few favorite sites but find for beginners, LocalBitcoins is one of the easiest ways to obtain a Bitcoin wallet and then buy and sell Bitcoins.
- Login to your LocalBitcoins Bitcoin Wallet.
- Click the Buy bitcoins button located at the upper-left hand side of the page.
- Preferably, buy from an Online Seller, with good rating like 100%
The Online Indicator shows if a trader is online right now (green), inactive (yellow) or offline (grey).
- Click the Buy button located at the right-hand side on seller’s row.
After clicking the ‘Buy‘ button you’ll see more information about the offer, including the Terms of the Trade.
- Read through them before submitting the trade request, if you don’t agree with them you can go back to the previous page and choose another offer.
- Specify the amount either in BTC or ZAR (or your country’s currency).
Notice that: If you put the amount in ZAR (Example: 1000), the Bitcoin amount is automatically calculated and entered for you in the BTC box.
- If you are happy with the seller’s Terms of Trade, click the Buy bitcoins for the amount you specified button.
- Be sure you’re ready to pay when clicking the Buy bitcoins for button, if you don’t pay before the payment window is over, the trade will be automatically cancelled.
Once you have made the payment, click the Mark Payment Complete button.
Once the trader has verified that your payment has been received, your Bitcoin will be released from escrow and they are instantly available in your LocalBitcoins wallet.
And that’s all there is to it, congratulations on your first Bitcoin trade!
