I need to make a transaction of 0.00744000 BTC using the site CoinPayments.net. However, when I click on "Add new deposit address" in my wallet, I can see a 34-character long code. Next to it, there is a button "Deposit with Bitcoin client", but when I click on it, an empty tab opens in Chrome. In Chrome's address bar, I can see the 34-character long code and the prefix bitcoin:.

However, I don't understand how am I supposed to make the transfer then? I need to convert $50 from my bank account to BTC.

  • I don't understand why people vote this as "customer support with a company". OP seems just confused about where to get BTC to deposit. – Pieter Wuille Apr 23 '20 at 19:50

"Deposit with Bitcoin client" does the opposite of what you need to do.

(Though I'd read this before making any transactions on that website.)

  • Could you elaborate more on the first sentence? Thanks for the link. – J. Doe Apr 15 '20 at 16:15
  • You need "deposit from bank account". – MCCCS Apr 15 '20 at 16:28
  • Unfortunately that is not offered, so then I would need to have another Bitcoin client for this? – J. Doe Apr 15 '20 at 16:40
  • Yes. (In fact this is a valid reason alone to be suspicious. Because bank transactions are more traceable than Bitcoin payments, so they'd rather commit fraud with bitcoins) – MCCCS Apr 15 '20 at 17:38
