By going to the main page, you will see the "Buy" and "Sell" options on the left.
Selecting “Buy” will bring up the tokens that are available for purchase. Once a token has been selected, it will bring up a new tab that will allow the selection of purchase method and amount.
After the selection of method and amount is done, a confirmation screen comes up, following that the transaction needs to be authenticated. Upon successful authentication, the purchase confirmation screen comes up.
