Credit Card Payment
Of special interest to many Bitcoin fans is IndaCoin’s facility that allows users to purchase bitcoins using a credit card.
In most cases, credit card purchases can be made without the need for users to provide any personal information to the exchange. After initiating their first credit card purchase, a user can contact their bank (or online banking facility,) to obtain the authorization code used for the transaction and provide this code via an Indacoin platform “waiting” page to authorize the purchase. Provision of this authorization code simultaneously enables instant future payments which do not require the aforementioned process (for the same card) and whereby bitcoins are deposited in the user’s exchange wallet after confirmation by the Bitcoin network.
In some cases (and in lieu of the above mentioned authorization code) the IndaCoin payment platform may request a photo of the user’s credit card (with the first 10 numbers of the card obscured) and their passport or driver license. This is generally the case for users without a 3D Secured credit card, and is also the exchange’s recommended course of action for users who do use a 3D Secured card, but who cannot obtain the authorization code.
Debit cards and Visa Electron cards can also be used to transact.
Contact and Interact
The Indacoin website is available in three languages: English, Spanish and Russian, and features a 24 hour live webchat service, which means users can get information and assistance around the clock and over weekends.
The exchange confirms that users from the US, EU, LATAM and some Asian countries have been using the instant payment facility with success.
The Indacoin website is minimalist yet intuitive. Making its appearance after many years of often over-complicated and laborious exchange sites and procedures, Indacoin is a no-nonsense breath of fresh air and cut to the chase of providing users with an easy cryptocurrency exchange service.
