Need an exchange/wallet

Greg Hurd asked 1 year ago

Help find an exchange/wallet that allows me to fund the account by credit/debit card and withdraw cash via debit card. I live in Costa Rica and use a local bank and debit card. I am unable to find anyone who can do what I want. Xapo used to do it but have now limited their debit card to Europe.

Hi Greg,
The only companies I’m aware of which allow you to purchase Bitcoin from Costa Rica via credit card are CoinMama and SpectroCoin. SpectroCoin used to allow cash withdrawals via debit card but it seems this is no longer available for your region.
Have you checked out the various companies in our Bitcoin debit card review article?

Hi again, Greg,
I did a little more searching for debit cards available for your country. I even checked out the obscure firm, although it seems they have also stopped supporting Costa Rica. All I can suggest is to buy Bitcoin via credit card or however you can and then use a Bitcoin ATM or LocalBitcoins seller to get cash for your BTC.
Sadly it seems like no business caters to this niche in your country. Perhaps you could start such a company if you know many people who desire such a service.
