Please! I just want to get them! How hard does it have to be? I've spent some 5 hours today trying to figure it out. I am in Australia.
LocalBitcoins.com has buy and sell online in AUD and also AUD cash trade:
If you buy from a trader with good reputation history and fast response times you can get bitcoins within an hour.
In Australia there are currently a number of options for buying Bitcoins. Below is a list of exchanges that I am aware of that accept AUD.
Fixed Price Exchanges: (Create order at fixed price and transfer funds after order is created. Usually same day service)
- Bit Innovate Accepts over the counter bank deposits (our site)
- Spend Bitcoins Accepts over the counter bank deposits
- bitXoin Accepts over the counter bank deposits
Another good resource is https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Buying_bitcoins which usually contains up to date information on all the ways to buy bitcoins in all countries.
https://www.spendbitcoins.com/buy/ - You can deposit at any NAB, Commonwealth Bank, Westpac or ANZ bank across australia
I think WeExchange accepts AUD.
However I personally wouldn't recommend it, since for me it has shown some worrying login problems.
bitcointrader is becoming a favored Australian exchange for cash over the counter deposits offering competitive rates and good service
I have to send a big shout out for the crew at my two favorite exchanges bitXoin [https://www.bitXoin.com/] and spendbitcoins [www.spendbitcoins.com.au] as they are both local to me (Gold Coast) and fast, safe and professional to deal with.
In particular, if you want to buy bitcoins over the counter and you are in the Gold Coast area then visit the bitXoin offices there at Chevron Renaissance Centre in Surfers Paradise.
Prices are very low (basically lower than Mt. Gox prices) and processing happened within an hour or two depending on what time I get the deposit into the bank (mornings seem slightly faster).
Disclaimer: I have no affiliation with any bitcoin companies and my opinion is based on over 10 seperate transactions since start of 2013. Hope this helps.
These people are Australian-based, and accept AUD. They also have a merchant service. I haven't tried them yet, maybe when the price goes down again...
