Coinbase

Through your Coinbase wallet you can buy bitcoins with a bank transfer

After you’ve registered, you have to wait 1-2 days before your account is verified. Did you already deposit a larger amount, as described here in point 4? Then you can immediately go to the ‘buy/sell’ page and exchange your dollars or euros for bitcoins. Did you only deposit a small account just to verify your account? Then you’ll have to deposit again after which you can buy your own bitcoins.

As you can see in the picture below, you just enter the amount of euro or dollar you want to exchange into bitcoin. You now see the amount of bitcoins that you’ll get and you can click ‘buy bitcoins’. Once bought, the bitcoins will automatically appear into your BTC Wallet. Congratulations! You now have some bitcoins in your possession!
