What is Bitit and how does it work?

Bitit is a bitcoin selling and delivery service. Being based in Paris, all its prices are in euros, but the payment process is the same with other currencies. You will be charged exchange fees when paying with a card.

Here are the simple steps you need to take:

  1. Create an account. You can quickly create an account and buy up to €25 of bitcoin without verification. You will need to verify your identity for more purchases after that.
  2. Place an order. Choose a purchase amount from €25 to €250.
  3. Make your payment. In the US, you can pay by prepaid cash voucher through Neosurf or Cashlib, by a 3D-Secure credit card (Visa, Mastercard, Maestro or American Express), by a Trustpay bank transfer or by Epay e-wallet.
  4. Wait for bitcoin delivery. You’ll have bitcoin delivered to your wallet in around 10 minutes.

Fees

The transaction fee varies by payment method.
