Cape Town Bitcoin is a physical exchange
It’s easy and similar to go to a currency exchange office and convert Rands to a foreign currency like US dollar or Euros. It's just easy to do that with Bitcoin. The difference is that Bitcoin needs a software wallet in order to store the currency. If you are not familiar with a bitcoin wallet please check all information about wallets right here.

At Cape Town Bitcoin, our preferred wallet is Coinomi. This wallet can be set on a smart phone with Android or iOS. Our setup price plus 20 minutes of training and questions is R350. Now you have an empty Bitcoin wallet ready to by filled with Bitcoin currency.

The Bitcoin price is volatile and the price has to be fix at the moment of the transaction. Like any other currency, there is a buying price and a selling price related to the market price of the Bitcoin, that includes commission and transfer fees.
If the price is agreed the transaction or exchange of currency can take place. The seller will transfer the Bitcoin (or portion of the Bitcoin) to the buyer's electronic wallet and the buyer will pay the seller the price. For the transaction to be valid and irreversible, six confirmations of the bitcoin network must appear in the wallet. At that stage, it’s only a question of time to have full confirmation and you can be the happy owner of the Bitcoin. (Please note that two confirmations can be enough for small portion of a Bitcoin)
