You can now buy cryptocurrency directly for your Luno wallet without having to first make a deposit. It’s a feature we’re excited to bring to your region (we’re first rolling this out to segments of our customers in the United Kingdom and a growing number of countries in the EU – if you don’t see the Instant Buy option when buying cryptocurrency on your Luno app or web, then we’re still working on bringing this feature to your region.
What is Instant Buy?
You’ve probably noticed that things are looking a little different around here. So what’s new? With Instant Buy you can purchase a set amount of cryptocurrency, or you can specify your own amount – without having to add money to your local currency wallet first. Use your credit or debit card, Google Pay or EveryPay credit card to get cryptocurrency directly into your Luno wallet.

Frequently asked questions
Why can’t I see this feature when I deposit money?
We’ve released this feature to a segment of customers in the UK, Italy, France, Finland, Ireland, Austria, Switzerland and Belgium for now and will soon be rolling it out on a larger scale to more of our customers. If you don’t see the option to add a saved credit card when depositing money, please be patient while we work on bringing this new deposit method to you.

You can save two cards to your account.
How safe is it to save my credit card with Luno?
