Buy From a Private Seller
Buying a car with Bitcoin from a private seller is possible, though less likely than finding qualified dealerships that accept crypto. Similar to buying a house with Bitcoin, the biggest hurdle will be finding a seller willing to accept cryptocurrency for the car. However, once you do find a private car seller that accepts crypto, the process will be as simple as any cash exchange. Simply use your preferred crypto wallet to transfer the funds to the private seller and have them transfer ownership as they would with any other sale.
Use the BitPay Card to Pay for a Car with Crypto
The BitPay crypto card lets you use crypto like cash. This means you can put a down payment on a car, make monthly payments, and even pay for your car insurance with crypto. Use the BitPay Card like you would any other debit card. Instead of pulling funds from a bank account, our card connects to the BitPay Wallet app. Load up to $25,000 worth of crypto per month. You can even pull cash from an ATM with the card.
