Quick Reference Buying Guide

Step 1 - Buy Order

Fill in the Bitcoins Canada buy order form, by providing the following information.

  • Number of bitcoins to buy
  • Your Bitcoin wallet address - need a wallet?
  • Your email address

Submit the form. A buy order confirmation page will be displayed.

Step 2 - Confirmation Email

Bitcoins Canada will send a confirmation email with the details of the buy order and instructions on how to make a bank deposit.

Step 3 - Bank Deposit

Visit one of the following banks, in person:

  • RBC Royal Bank
  • TD Canada Trust
  • Scotiabank
  • BMO Bank of Montreal
  • CIBC

If you are an account holder at the bank you visit, you may transfer funds from your account to ours. Transfers must be done in branch, not online. If you are not an account holder you will need to bring and deposit cash.

Give the bank teller our bank account information that you will receive by email and deposit the exact amount from the buy order.

For the buy order to be accepted, the bank deposit must be made within three hours of submitting the buy order, due to price fluctuations. If the deposit is made later than three hours we will adjust the number of bitcoins sold, to reflect current prices.

Step 4 - Bitcoin Wallet Deposit

Bitcoins Canada will deposit the bitcoins into your wallet.

Please allow approximately three hours for the bitcoins to arrive in your wallet, from the time you make the bank deposit.
