Hello everyone!

We've just launched a feature that allows users to buy Bitcoin using mobile credit simply by sending a text message, or making a call to a premium number!
The payment is charged directly to your phone bill.

To buy Bitcoin with your mobile phone, no registration is needed, an no verification whatsoever!



To make this happen, we partnered with an Austrian carrier billing company DaoPay. We have rolled out in 9 European countries right now: Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, Finland, Germany, Greece, Netherlands, Slovakia, and Spain; and we already have approval for 35+ countries, which will be added on gradually.

The feature is great for buying small amounts of Bitcoin ($5-$100 worth of), for example, when you are short a few mBTCs to make a purchase, or if you are just starting out with Bitcoin and are looking for an easy way to try it out. For people who get their mobile bills paid by employers, this is also a great way to cash out a few extra bucks at the end of the month  Roll Eyes

Check it out at https://coingate.com/buy-bitcoin-mobile and tell us what you think!

Best regards to all!

Is there any service charge if purchased from mobile credit? If I purchase for 5$ for example, 5$ is deducted from my mobile balance, will I get 5$ worth of Bitcoin or will it be less, if less, how much will we get?

It's great idea and i never think about buy bitcoin with mobile credit since the fee when you buy something with mobile credit is very high, so i wonder what's the rate/fee of your service.
I want to try this service since there's no need for verification, but looks like you haven't support from Indonesia Sad

Hello guys, many thanks for your replies and questions!

A couple of you asked about the fees. It's always been very common for operators to put a big price premium on numbers dedicated to payment collection. In addition, due to the nature of the service, VAT is also included in the price. Therefore, depending on the country, the amount of Bitcoin paid out is around 20%-50% lower than the actual real-time value, as unfortunate as it is, and there's literally nothing we can do, as much as we would like to. Nonetheless, so far we've been quite successful with the new feature, and there are quite a few people who have bought bitcoins from us using this method. We're sure our numbers will only grow as there are plenty of use cases for this - using your leftover monthly balance, emptying SIP trunks, among others.

We've now added several more countries to our Mobile Purchase feature, and here's a complete list of countries currently supported for buying Bitcoin with mobile balance / phone credit (in some countries landline purchases are also available):
Austria, Belgium, Germany, Netherlands, Luxembourg, Norway, Finland, Denmark, United Kingdom, Ireland, Spain, Greece, Poland, Cyprus, Hungary, Slovakia, Israel, Israel, and Canada.

So far 18 countries in total, with more coming soon...

Best regards to everyone!

Hi, I am interested in your service and I would to know if CoinGate supports mobile credit that is prepaid instead of charging the phone bill. Have been looking for a way to buy BTC with my extra mobile credit so I would keep a lookout for this service. Hope to see more supported countries and good luck! Smiley

This would be great service IMO, but the sad thing is my country (Philippines) is not supported yet for this, but I will wait until you added some countries included ours too.
And can someone here confirm that you successfully bought bitcoin from here using this method. Thanks.

I wish that you add more countries too as I am seeing that my country is still not in the list of supported countries. I will like to buy bitcoin with my mobile balance as it will be more convenient for me to buy bitcoin than any other way to buy. In my country it is a little hard to buy and mostly I use local exchanges to buy bitcoin.

Hi guys,

If anyone is looking for specific countries that we do not yet support, please be kind enough and let us know - this would be very helpful for us in requesting these countries from our partners.

Just to let everyone know, we have added Romania and Czech Republic to our list as well.

Hi, I am interested in your service and I would to know if CoinGate supports mobile credit that is prepaid instead of charging the phone bill. Have been looking for a way to buy BTC with my extra mobile credit so I would keep a lookout for this service. Hope to see more supported countries and good luck! Smiley
Apologies, we missed your question! Prepaid credit is also supported, it does not have to be a regular phone bill for you to use the feature Smiley

I wish that you add more countries too as I am seeing that my country is still not in the list of supported countries. I will like to buy bitcoin with my mobile balance as it will be more convenient for me to buy bitcoin than any other way to buy. In my country it is a little hard to buy and mostly I use local exchanges to buy bitcoin.
Please let us know your country! Smiley

We've already inquired about Philippines and hopefully we will support it by the end of summer, in addition to some other countries in Southeast Asia!

Thanks, and this is just what I wanted!! I live in the Southeast Asia too and I hope you could bring this service here to Malaysia/Singapore! Really looking forward to this service!

May I know if there are any fees for this service? It does not say anything about extra charges for the service at your site so I would like to confirm before I try it out, thanks!

Hello and sorry for the delayed response. There are fees, unfortunately, associated with the service, and they are primarily due to charges of phone carriers in various countries. Also, due to the nature of the service, there is a VAT included in the price. I wish we could have more control over this, but there are a lot of parties involved (different phone carriers in each country, to be precise), and they have the final saying and fees are in their hands. You can see an approximate number of bitcoins you will receive in the buy form, displayed just below the amount that will be billed to your phone.

Meanwhile, just to inform everyone, we now support Denmark, Czech Republic, Hungary and Israel!

Phone payments are temporarily disabled for technical maintenance
CoinGate has not expected such vast interest in our phone payments feature, and we are therefore temporarily suspending it to upgrade functionality and user experience.

Thank you for trying it out and providing us with your feedback - it is extremely useful and much appreciated.

We will return with phone payments soon, subscribe below to get notified!

seem the service under maintenance, hope you support indonesian mobile credit , interesting to buy some bits use this service Smiley

Hello everyone,

Thank you for the comments. We plan to relaunch the option to buy Bitcoin with phone credit by mid-October, if there are no unexpected technical issues.

We'll start off slow, but will add more countries as we go (Asia is the primary region we want to expand in!).

Subscribe to our mailing list for this feature and stay tuned to our updates: https://coingate.com/buy-bitcoin-mobile

Best regards,
CoinGate Team
