How To Buy Backpage Ads Using Bitcoin

In this section we will show you how to buy ads on Backpage with Bitcoin you purchase from National Bitcoin ATMs. Before starting though, make sure you have read our Tips and Advice Page. This section also assumes that you know how to post an ad on Backpage. The tutorial starts on the payment page of placing an ad.

It is also important to note that we have not affiliation with Backpage. This article is only to show you how to buy ads. If for some reason you are having issues using or having issues with a transaction sending Bitcoin to Backpage you will want to contact their support team.

Step 1:
Once you have created your ad, you should be taken to a payments page. Once you are on this page and are ready to pay, click on the "Bitcoin" option on your screen.

Step 2:

Next, you will see an option to create and invoice. Click on "Create Invoice"

Step 3:

After clicking "create invoice" backpage will then create an invoice showing you how much Bitcoin you will need to send over. In order to send that Bitcoin you will want to first generate a QR code so that you can scan the QR code from your digital wallet. So click on "Generate QR". This will generate a large QR code for you to scan.

Step 4:

Once the QR code is generated, you will want to scan the QR code and send the EXACT amount of Bitcoin requested.

(To learn how to send Bitcoin from your wallet, see the buttons below).


Note: Be sure to enter the exact Bitcoin amount that the person or business is asking for. NOT the USD amount. Bitcoin is constantly changing in value so you will want to make sure you send the Bitcoin amount that was requested.


Step 5:

Once you send the Bitcoin, you should see the Backpage website refresh. Once it refreshes it will show you that you have correctly paid for the ad and that it has posted. If for some reason the page has not refreshed after a few minutes, double check to make sure you sent the right amount of Bitcoin from  your wallet. If you experiencing any other issues, we suggest contacting Backpage support.

Finished - Next Steps:

Congrats! You have successfully purchased an ad on Backpage with Bitcoin.
