Monero is a private cryptocurrency that can be used to shop online and send money worldwide. Monero's anonymity, low fees and fast transactions make it a better alternative to credit cards and Paypal. This is an overview of easy ways to buy Monero, that don't require ID or a bank account, and can be used by anyone.
Cash in person, cash by mail, gift cards

You can also trade gift cards for Monero, including Amazon, Visa, Google Play and PaySafeCard. These exchanges additionally support money orders, cash deposits and cash at ATMs.
Crypto ATMs and vouchers
KYC-free crypto ATMs and vouchers provide a convenient way to buy crypto. You may need to buy Bitcoin first, then exchange it to Monero via FixedFloat.com or CoinSwap.click. Check a map of crypto ATMs at CoinATMRadar.com or crypto voucher vendors at Azte.co.
If you already have a different cryptocurrency, such as Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum or Dogecoin, you can easily trade it for Monero with an instant exchange: FixedFloat.com, CoinSwap.click or TradeOgre.com.
