You can now instantly buy bitcoin from Coinbase by adding a Mastercard credit card as a backup payment method to your verified bank account.
Previously, the only way to buy bitcoin instantly from Coinbase was by verifying a bank account and Visa credit card or by funding a USD wallet. Today’s addition of Mastercard provides an alternative backup payment method so more consumers can instantly buy from Coinbase.
This has been a common feature request from the community for a long time and we’re excited to finally add it. We love getting feedback from the community– keep it coming on Twitter and on our Coinbase Community forums.
