The Bitpanda Card is a debit card, therefore you cannot create any debt when using it. It is connected to your Bitpanda account and enables you to spend funds directly from any of your wallets - be that fiat, crypto, stocks or metals. You can use it for online payments, to pay for your groceries at the supermarket or to make ATM withdrawals. Since the Bitpanda Card is connected to the Visa payment system, it can be used anywhere in the world where a Visa card is accepted.
In order to be eligible to order the Bitpanda Card, you have to fulfil the following 3 requirements:
If you fulfil the above-mentioned criteria, you will be able to order a Bitpanda Card. Just select “Card” in the menu of your Bitpanda account and follow the instructions provided to you on-screen.
Your card will typically be shipped within 5-10 working days. Shipping times may vary depending on the destination country and the delivery location within each country.
In order to use your Bitpanda card, you need to set up a “Main payment asset”. You can use any asset* you hold on Bitpanda as your Main payment asset, this includes fiat (EUR), all crypto-assets, stocks and precious metals. Your card is then connected to your Main payment asset at all times, which is used to fund your card payments. This means at the moment you complete a purchase or cash withdrawal with your card, your asset will instantly and automatically be traded to EUR and deducted from your EUR fiat currency wallet to complete the payment. Of course, you can always switch your Main payment asset via the Bitpanda App at any time.
You can also set up a “Fallback payment asset”. The Fallback payment asset is optional but recommended to add. If a payment is too big to be covered by the connected Main payment asset, the full amount will be deducted from the fallback wallet. This helps avoid failed transactions if your main wallet is running low on funds.
*except the Bitpanda Crypto Indices
You can have the information on your card spending at your fingertips. The moment you spend with your card, you will immediately receive a push notification with a summary of your payment, including the asset used and the credited cashback (more info about cashback is provided below) on the display of your phone. Additionally, you can find an overview of your payment history and trade history in your Bitpanda mobile app.
Most payments fail due to insufficient funds. You should make sure your chosen payment asset has sufficient funds to cover the payment amount. Otherwise, you can switch to a different wallet or asset that has the sufficient amount in it. For other common reasons a payment may fail and what to do if your payments fail, please refer to our Helpdesk articles.
Note: If you have been asked to provide "Proof of funds", all payout options including the Bitpanda Card will be disabled until the requested documents have been submitted, processed and approved.
The Bitpanda Card comes with the lowest fees out there. With the Bitpanda Card, there are no card issuing fees and no recurring card or account management fees. All EUR transactions are also free of charge. The only fees we charge are for non-EUR transactions (FX) and cash withdrawals (ATM), and even those can be reduced depending on your BEST VIP level. You can find out more about our BEST VIP benefits here.
When you use your Bitpanda Card, like when tapping your card to buy your morning coffee, the only thing we charge are regular Bitpanda trading premiums to convert your chosen payment asset into fiat (if your chosen payment asset is not already fiat). Just the right amount of Bitcoin is converted into EUR to pay for your coffee, but everything is done automatically and instantly in the background for you. Unlike other cards out there, we do not charge you anything for using your card. We only charge the usual trading premiums that you would need to pay anyway if you wanted to convert your investment back into EUR at some point in the future. If your EUR wallet is connected to your card, there, of course, won’t even be any trading premiums.
Of course. As usual, we also offer benefits for our BEST VIP users. Find out more about our BEST VIP card benefits. For general information on our BEST VIP programme, click here.
BEST level changes become effective at 23:59 CET of the day you reach your new BEST level. From that day onwards, you can enjoy all the benefits that come with a higher BEST level like lower FX fees or higher cashback amounts.

During the card activation process, you can select both a Main and an optional Fallback payment asset. These will be used to fund your card payments. The Main payment asset is the default asset to cover your transaction. If the balance of your Main payment asset is too low to fund the transaction, your card would normally be declined. In this case, however, the Fallback asset jumps into action and covers the respective payment to avoid a failed transaction.
Note: You can change the main and Fallback asset at any time via the Bitpanda mobile app.
Nope, there are no minimum transaction amounts.
To activate your card, follow these 3 simple steps:

Yes, at any time. You can use the Bitpanda App to manage your card. For instance, you initially set the Main payment asset to be Bitcoin but now you want to pay with Ethereum instead. No problem – This can be done at any time, instantly. You can also connect your EUR wallet, as well any other asset offered on the Bitpanda platform (except the Bitpanda Crypto Indices).
Of course, you can payFF in the smoothest way possible - using contactless payment. Google Pay and Samsung Pay currently support the Bitpanda Card. Apple Pay supports the Bitpanda Card in Austria and will soon support it in several other countries in Europe.
Paying with cryptocurrencies by e.g. using your Bitcoin (BTC) as the default asset for the Bitpanda Card involves a trade from cryptocurrency to euro. Therefore, this is usually a taxable event. However, please note that taxable events depend on your individual tax situation and are country-specific. Therefore, please understand that Bitpanda cannot provide any tax support and we recommend that you get in touch with your local tax advisor for more information. Please note that you can also use your euro wallet with your Bitpanda Card, which doesn't involve a taxable event when a payment is made using the Bitpanda Card.
Cashback is available for purchases made using crypto and metals. Your payments will be excluded from the BTC cashback programme if fiat (€), Bitpanda Stocks, USDT or USDC are your selected payment asset.
