Is there a way to purchase BTC with a credit card instead of a bank account?

How about Coinbase?  http://coinbase.com

For some reason, Visa only.

Try not to use paypal buying BTC, paypal just dislike BTC and might freeze your account randomly...

I recommend coinbase, but you might get rejected once or twice as high risk, so you might have to buy multiple times before success.

Hello all!

Is that really possible? If yesy I am about to buy 0.5 BTC.
But never heard about CC buying.

After I posted about Coinbase, it occurred to me that OP (Kiki112) doesn't have or doesn't want to disclose a bank account, and I'm not sure Coinbase would approve an account with only a credit card.  Since anhpt192 and EnderHf expressed surprise, I should add that I have not successfully used my Visa card with Coinbase, only bank account.  First, I found that almost all of my true credit cards (it rejected my debit cards) were MasterCard (not accepted at this time), a pattern I hadn't noticed before.  And with my Wells Fargo VISA card, it refused it, said it didn't authenticate.  Huh?  I emailed their customer support that I had checked EXACTLY the syntax, spacing, etc. for all fields right off the Visa bill, and they didn't respond.

Otherwise, I've found Coinbase, while slow to process via bank account, to be a smooth BTC purchase source -- and next time I need a new credit card, I'll look for a VISA to get more diversified!
