Per the official announcement published on December 26th, Binance now supports users purchasing crypto directly via binding Visa cards to an account. This feature currently allows for the purchase of four cryptocurrencies— bitcoin (BTC), ether (ETH), binance coin (BNB), and XRP.
This can be accessed by visiting the new “Buy Crypto” page, where they will be asked to add their Visa card. Once the card is bound, clients will be able to purchase crypto directly through the exchange.
The new service is available for Visa credit and debit cards issued within the European Economic Area, which covers 31 countries.
The announcement also includes an update for Mastercard holders which goes thus:
“Support for Mastercard and additional currencies will be added in the near future. Please stay tuned for more information.”
