How to buy $250 or less worth of bitcoin

Step 1
Simply tap the screen to select that you want to “Buy Bitcoin”

If you would prefer to have your screen prompts in another language you can select the corresponding flag before selecting “Buy Bitcoin”

Note: Since you aren’t purchasing over $250 you do not have to register.

Step 2
Select the green button that you would like to buy “Less than $250 USD”

Step 3
Review the privacy notice on what information will be gathered. Once you accept you will select “I Agree”.

Step 4
Using the keypad, enter your mobile phone number including your area code. Once you are ready select “Ok” in the lower right hand corner.

Step 5
You will now receive a text message on the number you used in Step 4 with a 5 digit number.

Using the keypad, enter the numbers that were sent in the verification message. Once you’ve entered the code simply select “Ok” in the lower right hand corner.

Step 6
You will now open your wallet on your cell phone and bring up your receiving QR code. (For more information on downloading a wallet for your device see this post.)

With your QR code displayed, hold your cellphone’s display against the camera in the upper left hand corner of the ATM. You may need to move it slightly or pull back from the display glass for it to capture your receiving address. Once it has captured your receiving address the machine will move on to the next step.

Step 7
Start by inspecting the bitcoin address listed in the blue box to confirm it matches your wallet address.

Note: Please review the price listed on the bottom of the screen. This will be the rate that will be used for your purchase. If you have a discount code that you would like to apply simply select “Enter Discount Code” and a text field will pop up. If your discount is active you will get a green notification.

Step 8
Simply insert your US Dollar Bills into the cash receiver in the upper right hand corner of the machine. After accepting your bill the machine will update to feature your current amount entered and the corresponding amount of bitcoin you will receive. Continue inserting your bills after the update is displayed.

Note: Due to increased bitcoin network fees we now require at least $20 transactions on bitcoin purchases. To enforce this buying minimum, the system will require that you start with a $20 bill or higher. If you try to start your transaction with a smaller bill it will kick it back out. Any bills that are inserted into the machine can not be returned.

Step 9
After you’ve finished inserting your cash into the machine you can simply select the green “Buy Bitcoins” button in the lower right hand corner.

Step 10
Congratulations! You’ve completed your bitcoin purchase. For your records the system will display the amount of bitcoin you purchased, the amount of cash you inserted and your transaction ID.

Note: If for some reason you have an issue and reach a red screen you will be presented with the same information. Please send a text message to (859) 469-3500 with the account error. A representative will reach out momentarily to resolve the issue.
