The crypto acquisition by card with EQIFi is made through Simplex, an EU-licensed financial institution.
STEP 1: Once you log in to the EQIFi platform, on the menu on the left-hand side of the screen, you will see an option named “Buy EQX.” Click that.
STEP 2: Once on that screen, you will have 2 options - Buy with Credit/Debit Card or Exchange on an Exchange. You are interested in the Buy with Card option.
STEP 3: Select the Cryptocurrency and the Fiat Currency you wish to transact in. It is set by default in EQX and EUR, but you can choose between more than 20 Cryptos and over 20 Fiat currencies.
STEP 4 (on the Simplex integration):
After selecting the desired amounts and pressing continue, you will be prompted to the next page, where you will be required to enter your card details, such as full card number, full name, CVV (security) code, and expiry date.
Then, you will be asked to enter your details, such as the billing address, city, zip/postal code, country, and contact details - your email, date of birth, and phone number.
On this page, you will also see the exact amount of cryptocurrency you will receive with all the fees already applied.
Once the information is submitted, if everything is entered accordingly - no special symbols, only the Latin alphabet used, and the phone is in the international format - you should be able to press "PAY NOW."
Please be informed that by pressing "PAY NOW," you agree with the terms and conditions of our services and the cryptocurrency amount you will receive and confirm that the details you have entered are correct.
After pressing "PAY NOW," the verification process will begin.
During the verification process, you will need to verify your email by entering a 4-digit code that will be sent to the email address provided. After the email is verified, you may be asked to submit your identity document and enter its details on the document upload page.
You might also be asked to upload a selfie with the card - photo or video - as proof of card ownership.
FINAL STEP: If all of these steps are completed, your payment will be approved, and the coins will be sent to the wallet address used in the transaction. The new balance will reflect in the wallet as soon as it is confirmed on the Blockchain.
