The best way to get fiat currency onto Cryptopia is through NZDT.


NZDT is a token that is equivalent to the NZ$ (NZ$1 = NZDT 1)


You can buy them through Cryptopia - details are here:
https://www.cryptopia.co.nz/Forum/Thread/1335

 


The follow methods are NOT ENDORSED by Cryptopia or by me, however I have used them all personally and they all appear to work.


If you don’t already have Bitcoin or other crypotocurrency and you’re looking to use USD or another government backed currency you can purchase BTC through

https://localbitcoins.com/  and https://www.coinbase.com/signin


Many cities also have bitcoin ATMs where you can convert cash to bitcoin. https://coinatmradar.com/countries/

In the EU you can use https://anycoindirect.eu/

In Canada you can use https://www.quadrigacx.com/


You could also use Tether if you have USD or EUR; https://tether.to/


Some of the competing exchanges also provide the ability to convert currency to bitcoin: https://www.bestbitcoinexchange.io/ (I'm not going to list all the exchanges) 


Please PM me if you know another good method of converting currency to crypto that I have not listed here.


While an attempt has been made not to promote any dodgy providers please be aware that using third party services are NOT ENDORSED by Cryptopia or by me - buyer beware. This is informational only.
If you have some Cryptocurrency already, and want to deposit to Cryptopia, you may find this guide helpful: https://www.cryptopia.co.nz/Forum/Thread/1885

I minie it myself so I do get some each day, I have a coinbase account, if u want to buy it thru coinbase you have to complete the registration, use two factor authentication, verify email and phone, and lastly upload copy of your id or drivers license, ive done all but upload my id and have made sales of bitcoin to my bank account,  its a bit of a pain to attach your bank account as thats two factor authentication also.

Hi all,

 

I'm also in EU and I'm struggling to find a way to add some cash to my Cryptopia account. Transferwise.com seemed to be the best solution but when entering cryptopia's banking details, I got an error message saying that I was not allowed to transfer funds to a cryptocurrency site.

Using my normal bank account is possible but it's a rip off, they charge 25€ for the transfer no matter how much you transfer.

 

I have a coinbase account with a fraction of a bitcoin. Is there a way to transfer it to cryptopia? From what I see you can't transfer coins to other accounts but I may have missed something.


Thanks

 Depends on what coin. Some coin networks have issues. Check the blockexplorer and status for that coin on coininfo https://www.cryptopia.co.nz/CoinInfo

 Once you register with Coinbase you can either link your bank account or buy cryps using your credit card.  Credit card is the fasted.  Bank transfers can take up to 7 days.  Please keep in mind that Coinbase charges a % fee just to deposit the new funds.  So your net deposit will be a little less.  Once the deposit is complete you can buy BTC and then transfer it to Cryptopia using the unique address that Cryptopia provides you.  Also keep in mind that Coinbase chages another % fee to transfer cryps out of its exchange.  Hope this helps.

These sites and ways are all good, but I wanted to let anyone know that when transferring coins in BTC by Coinbase, there's usually a hefty transfer fee...upwards of 30 dollars (USD) each transfer. It makes more sense to transfer your BTC to your USD wallet, to LTC and then transfer/send. LTC fees are a fraction of a dollar, so even with the fees involved with transferring to ltc, you still come up on top. I made the mistake and then looked the second time and noticed.

hi everyone and greetings from Pakistan. have a few questions:

  • my account verification is taking too much time. Do I need to wait till it gets verified before transfering any crypto from other exchange to here?
  • can I deposit money to Cryptopia through my debit card since bank trasnfer will take a LOT of time
  • most of the coins here seems can be bought with doge, so should I buy doge on another exchange and trasnfer here? Or if there any other advise please let me know

 

Thanks :-)

Hello,

 

Today I transfered my ETH to other exchange, I didnt receive any email with confirmation and my ETH is not in cryptopia anymore. What could be possible reasons for this?

Thank You in advance!

你好,

 

今天,我把我的ETH转移到其他交易所,我没有收到任何确认电子邮件,我的ETH也不再是低俗的了。这可能是什么原因?

先谢谢你!

 

希望有人会回复!

干杯!

I know that there a few places where you can buy bitcoin using credit card or bank tranfser but keep in mind that if you use your debit or credit card you will be charged higher fees.

you can buy bitcoin, Ethurum, litecoin and bitcoin cash on coinbase with your credit card and you will be able accesse your coin immediately. Also, you can buy from Gdax using wire transfer with almost zero fees but it takes more time. After that, it would be easy for you to transfer your coins across exchange websites.

here is the link in case you are interested
