Buy Bitcoin using PayID

PayID is a deposit method that lets you pay instantly using your bank account.  It was recently introduced by Australian Banks.  Using PayID you can transfer money instantly using just an email address.  It’s a bit like PayPal but works directly from your bank account.

Buying Bitcoin Using PayID

CoinSpot, my favorite cryptocurrency broker has just started offering support for PayID deposits.  And at the moment there is no fee.  I tested out using PayID this morning and the process was really easy.

To use PayID with CoinSpot you simply send money via your internet banking app to the email address coinspot provides.  And you just need to include your customer reference number in the description field.  Coinspot has put together really good documentation as well, so you won’t have any troubles.

The deposit showed up in my coinspot account within a few minutes.  It should in theory be instant, but apparently banks delay the payments if you’re paying someone new.  But this delay is only ever a couple of minutes.

How to Buy Bitcoin with POLi

POLi is an Australian payment method owned by Australia Post.  It allows you to make instant purchases using your bank account.  Bank transfers usually take a couple of days, but when you pay by POLi the entire process is instant.

Bitcoin is a hugely volatile currency.  And if your payment method takes days to clear, by the time you’ve purchased the Bitcoin, the market will have moved on.  That’s why POLi makes a lot of sense for buying Bitcoin.
