Australian's looking to buy cryptocurrency with AUD have a wide range of options and can do so from the comfort of their home in a matter of minutes. Signing up for a cryptocurrency exchange is a bit like signing up for a bank – so you will want to have some ID and proof-of-address documents ready.
Below is a range of cryptocurrency brokers and exchanges that accept Australian dollars, although payment methods and services may vary.
It depends on what you need. To pick the right one for you, look at:
Direct bank transfers, such as Osko, PayID and POLi are usually the most cost-effective option where possible. This is because they’re often fee-free, and can be processed very quickly.
But just because a site accepts AUD doesn’t mean it accepts POLi or direct bank transfers. It also needs to have an Australian bank account for this to work.
By finding a seller in your local area you can directly hand over cash in exchange for cryptocurrency. But if you don’t trust the seller, this might not be the wisest move.
Instead, you can safely buy crypto with cash through Flexepin vouchers, bitcoin ATMs and other systems.
The upside is that it’s an extremely straightforward and simple way of buying. The downside is that you typically won’t be able to buy too much at once, and might be paying slightly higher prices than you would with a bank transfer.

Card for crypto? It’s probably easier than you’d think.
This can be a very easy and quick way of making a purchase, and you can often use it on international exchanges for automatic conversions from AUD to USD. The downside is that it can incur unwanted fees.
Currency conversion via credit card will typically be quite expensive, and you’ll need to watch out for the cash advance rate on the card.
PayPal and cryptocurrency aren’t necessarily the perfect combination, but for a lot of people, it’s still the best option. The advantage is that you can buy securely from the comfort of home, using tried and tested payment methods and without putting your card details online.
It can also make automatic currency conversions en route, at decent but not great rates. This will be required in most cases.
The main benefit is probably that it’s an exceptionally fast, albeit slightly more complicated, way of getting started. You won’t necessarily need to wait for identity verification either.
It’s not generally the ideal option if others are available, but if you want to buy into crypto fast it can be a decent choice.
If you have AUD to spend, it's typically better to use AUD directly where possible. This will often be the case even if it costs a little more overall.
It's all down to the transfer and currency exchange fees. And until you have cryptocurrency you can't really avoid them.
