Coinberry is a Canadian based site that provides a way to buy and sell bitcoins and other crypto-currencies. To signup, you’ll need to disclose some basic information about yourself including an e-mail address, name, and confirm your phone number. Once you’ve registered, Coinberry gives users the ability to buy & sell a variety of crpytos including Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ether, Litecoin, and XRP. Prices in Coinberry are similar to other Canadian based sites including Bylls and Coinsquare.
Users can fund their Coinberry account with Canadian dollars using Interac eTransfer, Wire transfer and Credit Card. In order to fund your Coinberry account with a credit card, you must verify your account further by linking a Canadian bank account. To do this, once logged into your account, navigate to the drop down menu labelled with your name in the top right corner of any page. Then choose “Settings”, then choose the button labelled “link your bank account”. This will take you to a menu where you must choose which bank to link. Banks you can choose from include TD, RBC, BMO, Scotia, CIBC, National Bank, Desjardins, Tangerine, Vancity, ATB, Simplii, Meridian, Laurentian, Coast Capital, HSBC, and EQ Bank.
I tried verifying my account by linking my bank account, but was unsuccessful. It wasn’t obvious what the problem might be. I got to the point where the Coinberry page was telling me “finalizing…” after I confirmed my identity with a text code, but then it seemed like the verification page where I linked my bank account simply hung up (or timed out?).
