How to Buy Ethereum Classic (ETC) with a Credit or Debit Card on bitFlyer

Other Methods to Buy Ethereum Classic (ETC)
Getting your bank card out isn’t always the most convenient option. We also offer a few other instant payment methods: Giropay, Sofort, and iDeal. With these instant transfer options, the process is just as fast, all you need is to approve the transaction with your bank and your purchase is complete.
Another option is SEPA bank transfers. SEPA offers a simple way to top up your account with funds for trading. With this method, instead of paying at the time of the trade, you send a payment to your account which you can use at any time. The only downside to SEPA transfers is that they can take a few days to complete.
