Also, because the seller has already deposited the Bitcoin they intend to sell, you don’t need to communicate directly with them. You interact only with the Bitkoin Africa platform and can be sure to receive your Bitcoin as soon as you make your payment. There’s no need for the seller to confirm a payment receipt before your Bitcoin Wallet can be credited.
Step 1: Go to the Bitkoin Africa trading pageYou can get here by either searching from the homepage (which can be accessed by clicking the Bitkoin Africa logo at the top left part of the navigation bar) or clicking the ‘Buy/Sell’ link on the top right part of the navigation bar. From the homepage or ‘Buy/Sell’ page, select the ‘Buy’ option, type in how much Bitcoin you’d like to buy, then click ‘Search’.
Step 2: Select your preferred sellerChoose who you’d like to buy Bitcoin from. The search results page will show sellers, the rate at which they’re willing to sell, and the minimum and maximum amounts they are willing to sell. Select the seller you think has the most profitable offer and click the ‘Buy’ button on the row with their details.
Step 3: Review and confirmAfter clicking ‘Buy’, take a few minutes to review the transaction. Bitcoin transfers are irreversible so it’s best to make sure all the details are correct before you click the confirm button.
