MetaMask Portfolio’s Buy feature enables you to purchase crypto easily through third-party providers. Designed with you in mind, the Buy feature prioritizes convenience and simplicity, allowing you to fund your wallet in a couple of clicks.

Vetted providers

Rather than being limited to a single provider, MetaMask aggregates an array of vetted providers—ensuring they meet our high standards—to present you with a customized quote for your crypto purchase. Aggregating quotes through multiple sources also gives you more options to compare and choose from.

Customized quotes

Everyone’s crypto buying needs and purchasing methods are different. That’s why we take into account multiple factors to present you with a customized quote.

  • Region: Available to users in 189 countries.
  • Payment Method: Availability of payment methods will vary by location. Choose from debit or credit card, PayPal (U.S. only excl. Hawaii), Bank Transfer, Instant ACH, and other local methods. More payment methods will be added soon.
  • Token: 90+ tokens available to purchase across 10+ networks including Ethereum, Polygon, Optimism, Arbitrum, Binance Smart Chain, Avalanche Contract Chain, Fantom, and Celo among others.
  • Amount: Based on the region you select and its various KYC laws, you could be subject to order limits.

Instant wallet funding

Your account balance is updated automatically in MetaMask once the purchase is executed with the provider. Now, you no longer have to wait to send money from a centralized exchange over to MetaMask.

Welcoming new users globally

Web3 is global, and welcoming people to crypto should be as well. Ever since launching the aggregator, MetaMask has been on a mission to partner with providers worldwide to help onboard anyone—regardless of where you are based—to web3.

We hope this becomes an ideal entry point for new users entering the web3 world so they can start diving into other core activities.
