How can I purchase BTC with Simplex?

Now purchasing BTC and depositing into your Abra wallet is even easier with Simplex.

With certain exceptions (and depending on the terms with your card issuer), this service is available across the globe.

Please note, while your purchase is immediate, funding your wallet may not be. Your transaction must confirm on the blockchain before the funds will reflect in your Abra wallet. Additionally, Simplex has the right to cancel a transaction for any reason. If a transaction is canceled your funds will be refunded to the card you used to purchase BTC with.

You must have the latest version of the Abra app to see this option.

However, you can also fund your wallet using the Abra website.
