Buying and selling bitcoin

To help users buy their first bitcoin we have teamed up with Glidera. They are a company that makes it easy for you to buy and sell bitcoin using your regular bank account.

General procedure

Will I need to provide identity information ?

Yes. Like all regulated financial companies, Glidera will require you to provide them with your bank account details and identity documents. This information is never passed back to MultiBit.

Will all my MultiBit wallets be linked to Glidera ?

No. Glidera only require a Bitcoin address from you when you purchase bitcoin. This is similar to making a purchase through a merchant.

If you do not wish to use their service then there is no requirement to do so.

My region is not covered. When can I expect it ?

Glidera have told us that they intend to cover more regions in the upcoming months. If you sign up to their service, they will be able to keep you informed.

I accidentally clicked on the 'Buy bitcoin at Glidera' button and now I have a payment request. What can I do ?

As with all unwanted payment requests they can be deleted as follows:

  1. Go to the Payments screen
  2. Select the payment request
  3. Click the 'Delete request' button.
  4. Repeat for each payment request you wish to delete

If you delete a payment request in error, you can use the 'Undo' button to reverse your action.
