How to Purchase Bitcoins from CoinAgent
Purchasing bitcoins from CoinAgent is a straightforward process once an account has been created. The following is a step-by-step tutorial on how you can sign-up for a CoinAgent account and purchase your bitcoins today.
Register an account on CoinAgent. To create your account, you must first click the “Register” button in the top-right corner of any page on CoinAgent.com. You will then be brought to the Registration Page where you enter your name, email, and create a username. An easy alternative is simply signing up with your Facebook account.
Turn on two-factor authentication. Although this is technically not a required action during the sign-up process, we highly recommend that you turn on two-factor authentication before depositing any funds to your account. There will be a warning message on your account dashboard page with a link to turn on two-factor authentication. Authy is the perfect app to use on your smartphone when you wish to add extra security to your account. With this security option enabled, your account can only be accessed with physical possession of both your smartphone and your password.
Verify your identity. Identity verification is not required for deposits, but it makes sense to take care of this step now in case you want to make a withdrawal in the future. This step is required before you will be able to withdraw any of your funds from your CoinAgent account. Access to the verification page can be easily found in red, bold font at the top of your dashboard page. To verify your identity, you will need to submit a copy of some form of ID and a document that can be used to prove your residency. After uploading the documents and entering your current address, the form can be submitted and our staff will review the documents before verifying your account.
Make a deposit. At this point in time, a bank wire is the only deposit method available for people who are wishing to purchase bitcoins. You can find the deposit page on the left side of your account dashboard. From there, you will be brought to the page for depositing money with a bank wire. On the first page, you will just need to enter your name, the amount you wish to deposit, and the currency you will be depositing. After that basic information is entered, you will be sent to the next page where you will receive the final instructions for sending a bank wire to CoinAgent.
