247exchange.com Enables Bitcoin Purchases Through Card Payments In 5 Different Currencies

Cryptocurrency exchange 247exchange.com has announced that its Canadian and Australian customers can now pay in Canadian Dollar (CAD) and Australian Dollar (AUD) through their credit and debit cards.

With the addition of AUD and CAD support, users from Australia and Canada now have a unique opportunity to buy Bitcoins using their local currencies, saving them time and money.

“We did it, because our clients ask for it in our surveys – we constantly study the customer feedback. We also have big plans for expansion in both the countries”, said Marketing Director of InterMoney Exchange Andrey Vereshchagin.

Operated by InterMoney Exchange, 247exchange.com started its services in Canada earlier this year by accepting payments in CAD through local bank transfers, INTERAC Online, and EFT/eCheck. It recently started operating in Australia by accepting payments in AUD through bank wire transfers. With this latest announcement, users from both countries can pay instantly with their debit/credit cards.

The exchange further revealed its plans to make the transactions between the platform and its users more convenient by integrating instant payments and withdrawal methods. 247exchange.com also intends to offer cash vouchers (prepaid cards) and local bank transfer options to its Australian customers sometime later this year.

The platform currently supports 8 different currencies viz., USD, GBP, AUD, CAD, CZK, RON, and ZAR, out of which 5 currencies – USD, EUR, GBP, CAD, and AUD have credit and debit card support.

Vereshchagin said that the platform aims to become the “absolute choice” for people interested in buying Bitcoins and other digital currencies with debit/credit cards. He went on to suggest that the platform will add new card networks soon, along with increasing the number of currencies it supports. Later this year, 247exchange 2.0 will be introduced, Vereshchagin added.

“We’re constructing a global exchange platform which is inexpensive and convenient for using in every part of the world. That’s why we regularly add new local options and currencies. At this point, we don’t have any analogues. You will not find another Bitcoin exchange service supporting credit card payments in so many fiat currencies. By the way, this list will continue to grow”, said Vereshchagin.
