Buy NFTs with credit and debit cards on KnownOrigin
New payment option
This week we launched ‘Pay with Card’ and ‘Add funds’ allowing you to purchase the artwork you love via credit or debit cards on KnownOrigin.
You can now buy artwork using your credit or debit card or top up via your profile
We are passionate about bringing new and exciting collectors and creators into the digital and NFT space, many of existing users have never experienced crypto before and this is also true for creators existing fan base and communities.
This new feature payment option will open up KnownOrigin to a brand-new audience and customer base and help drive wider adoption of the CryptoArt and NFT space.
We are keen to get the balance between convenience, security, KYC, fees and user experience right for knownOrigin as we see that paying with card as an integral part of the platform as we grow and expand the overall offering.
There are lots of 3rd party payment providers offering this service, and many will claim the same benefits, but after further investigation and due diligence we found that Wert.io is the best fit for KnownOrigin.
The killer feature is the ability to buy NFTs directly with your card in a single transaction!
Buying with your card
This feature allows you to buy CryptoArt directly in a single card purchase, and the NFT will land directly in your wallet.

Once you are ready, hit continue and start the purchase flow.
Wert will require the following standard details • Card number • Expiry month and year • CVV • Name on card
You may have to complete additional one-time KYC/AML verification steps as part of the process on your first purchase. This only takes a few short minutes to get verified.
Enter your details and click continue, this will trigger the purchase! You will be presented with a pending screen as the purchase is processed.
Once the purchase is complete you will receive the artwork (NFT) directly to your wallet. You can also send a receipt to your email for your records as part of this flow.
Finally, to view your newly purchased artwork you can simply close the modal and head to your profile.

We have seen the CryptoArt and NFTs grow at an incredible rate over the past 12 months with thousands of new creators entering the space. Many of these creators have massive audiences, fan bases & followers that now have the opportunity to own digital artworks using this new feature.
We are very excited to see how we can bridge the gap between blockchain technology and the broader creative industry.
We expect to see more partnerships with brands, media agencies, project teams & galleries moving in to the space and the release of this feature will help accelerate these initiatives.
Stay tuned for more platform & partnership updates.
