Buying Crypto.

Ainslie provides a simple and secure way to buy crypto (Gold & Silver Standard, Bitcoin, and Alt-Coins) for first time investors, existing wallet holders and even those who want to invest in crypto (Gold & Silver Standard, Bitcoin, and Alt-Coins) but don’t want to manage their own wallet.  You can buy in store, by phone or on-line in our webshop.


The key differences in buying from Ainslie are: 

1. It’s one of the only human to human ways to securely purchase crypto currencies, accepting cash, card, or bank deposit as payment.

2. We produce and load your wallet completely off line.  An un-hackable 'Ainslie Crypto Wallet'. (see video below).  Alternatively you can purchase and use a hardware wallet device.  NOTE:  You must visit our store and watch us produce and load the Ainslie Crypto Wallet in person.

3. During business hours you get to lock your price immediately and then pay. On crypto exchanges you deposit, wait, and then buy, subject to market changes and limits.

4. We offer a storage account option, where we can manage the entire purchase process for you.

5. We make the whole experience Safe and Easy.

First time buyers

Come in to our store and we will produce a brand new, completely off line, crypto wallet for you.  We give you an Ainslie Crypto Wallet and a copy on a USB memory stick.  We create and load your wallet right in front of you and show you how to check the balance.  We can only do this in store and in person.

All cryptocurrency wallet setups are completed in an ‘offline’ environment (both computer and printer).
Alternatively you may wish to purchase a Ledge Nano or TREZOR hardware wallet device for added protection and transactional versatility.

For your peace of mind we provide an invoice showing full payment and a copy your public / shared address included on the invoice.  Future orders can be completed without coming into our office as you can just provide your invoice number and we can load your purchase into the same wallet address.  It’s a great link between your wallet and invoice for future auditing and accounting purposes too.

Our office is a secure area and we require your photo ID to enter.  For all sales we will need to keep a record of this ID showing both your name and date of birth and/or address for AUSTRAC purposes.

Payment options include cash or bank transfer or swap bullion with crypto or crypto for bullion.

Please note there is a $1,000 minimum transaction per crypto currency in store, or $2,000 online.  

We cannot deliver web or phone orders for cryptocurrencies if you require a new Ainslie Crypto Wallet (As this is generated with you, in person). If you have an existing cryptocurrency wallet, we can simply use this to deposit your purchase into.

Once you have your loaded Crypto Wallet you may consider storing it at Reserve Vault in your own safe deposit box to protect it from theft, fire and flood. Visit here for more info.

Web orders

You can buy any of our listed cryptocurrencies online through our webshop. Simply click on Shop Now, search for Bitcoin in the webshop, add to cart, and adjust the amount of Aussie dollars you wish to spend (ensuring it equates to more than $2,000 and is no more than $100,000).  Confirm your order, enter your personal details and we will receive your order.  If this is within our business hours of 9am to 4pm AEST Monday to Friday you will get an emailed invoice soon afterwards for payment of the balance at the rate locked at the time of the order.  If you are ordering outside of business hours (9am - 4pm Mon-Fri AEST) and during public holidays, your AUD amount is locked in but the AUS, AGS, BTC, ETH, LTC, BCH or XRP / AUD rate will be per our published rate at 8.30am AEST on the next business day.

Full payment must be made on the same day you receive the invoice.  Options for payment include -

  • Bank transfer / deposit
  • Cash (paid in store)

If we have not previously done so, BEFORE you order you need to complete our Online ID Verification process.  You can do this by clicking here. If you are a first time buyer getting a new wallet or coming in to pay cash, please bring your ID with you.

If you are intending to use a new Ainslie Crypto Wallet, you will need to come in and complete this process in person. Crypto Wallets must be generated in person within 10 days of purchase.  Fees will apply if it is later than 10 days.

For existing wallets, we will ask you to send us your crypto wallet address or QR code.  If you are topping up an Ainslie Cypto Wallet all we need is your last invoice number and we can do the rest.

Once your funds and ID verification (if required) have been received we will transfer your cryptocurrency purchase to the wallet address you provide. We undertake to pay fees in line with Priority payment transaction times.

Please note there is a $2,000 minimum online transaction per cryptocurrency with Ainslie and a $100,000 maximum on-line without calling us.  We regularly complete orders much larger than $100,000 but we just need you to call us first to discuss on 1800 987 648.

Phone Orders

If you are not comfortable using the internet you can simply call us between 9am and 4pm weekdays on 1800 987 648 and we will take your order over the phone.  The process following your phone order is the same as the web order process just described above.  If you wish to order more than $100,000 you can call to request also.
