Changelly step by step instructions

Changelly supports a wide variety of cryptocurrencies with deposits made simple through a single-step process. Use your card to buy and immediately send Bitcoin to fund your Galaxy account.

IMPORTANT! Changelly can be used for depositing to your Galaxy account but cannot be used for withdrawals. For making withdrawals, we recommend using a different exchange wallet such as Edge App, Coinbase, CEX.IO, or Bitstamp.



Don't have an account with Changelly yet? No worries, it’s incredibly quick and easy to set one up.

Just head to hit the Sign Up button and follow these steps:

  1. Enter your email address and hit Continue to exchange
  2. An email confirmation will be sent to you
  3. Hit the link in the email to be taken back to the Changelly page
  4. You will then receive a second email containing your password (you can change this at any time by going to ‘Account’ -> ‘Settings’ in the top corner)



Once you are registered, you’ll be taken straight to the page where you can buy Bitcoin.


In the ‘YOU SEND’ field, select USD and enter the amount you want to spend. In the ‘YOU GET’ field, enter BTC (or chosen cryptocurrency) you want to receive. Agree to the Terms and hit Next Step




Next, you will need to enter the address the Bitcoin will be sent to. There are a few ways you can do this:

  • We recommend using the address from your personal wallet, such as Edge App, AirBitz or Mycelium. Once the funds are sent there, you can move them to your Galaxy account.
  • If you don’t have a personal wallet, you can hit the “don’t have one?” link to register an account with Freewallet.
  • Or, if you prefer you can enter a receiving address for Galaxy to have the funds sent directly to your sports account.


To use a Galaxy address:

  1. Log in to your Galaxy account
  2. Open the Cashier
  3. Select Deposit
  4. Select Bitcoin
  5. Enter the amount to deposit (must be the exact amount you want to deposit)
  6. Claim a bonus (optional)

You will need to copy this address. Just tap anywhere on the address or on the copy icon (like two sheets of paper) to the right. Please do NOT type addresses by hand. Always use the copy-paste tool!

Now, return to the Changelly page, paste the address into the address field and hit Continue


You’ll now be taken to the Payment screen.

  1. Enter your card info, billing address and contact details
  2. Agree to the Terms
  3. Hit PAY NOW

The last step is to complete ID Verification.

  1. Follow the instructions to upload a copy of your ID and enter a few personal details.
  2. Changelly will now verify your ID. This can take up to 30 minutes but in most cases is done much faster than that.
  3. You will receive an email to let you know once verification is completed and the payment has been processed.

Your deposit will then be posted to the blockchain. It usually takes just 10-60 minutes for deposits to be confirmed.

You can check the status of any transaction by going to the blockchain website and entering your deposit’s address:
