What is Bitit and how does it work?

Bitit is a bitcoin selling and delivery service. Being based in France 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 can 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 New Zealand you can pay with a 3-D Secure credit card (Visa, Mastercard, Maestro).
  4. Wait for bitcoin delivery. You will have bitcoin delivered to your wallet in around 10 minutes.
