We are excited to announce that Coinbase has expanded its services to Australia. Customers in Australia can now buy bitcoin and ether using their credit and debit cards.
We’re focused on creating an open financial system for the world, allowing people to easily buy and sell digital currencies anywhere in the world. Along with this launch in Australia, we are also making the ETH/BTC trading pair available on our professional trading platform GDAX to customers in Australia.
To get started, visit the “Trade” page on Coinbase.com or tap on “Buy” or “Sell” options in our iOS or Android apps to add a credit or debit card and buy digital currency. If you’re a developer, Coinbase also offers the Buy Widget, so third party sites and apps can offer their users the ability to buy bitcoin and ether without leaving the experience.
Please note that at this time users in Australia can only buy digital currency. We hope to add the ability to sell digital currency as well soon.
