    There are a few marketplaces that allow you to exchange USD for Bitcoin. I use
    Note though that they charge a small fee for the exchange. You can also sign-up for a wallet there too or just use a desktop version.

    I would recommend using a desktop wallet for more security. When you download a wallet you get an address associated with it which is just a long random string of characters. Think of this address as sort of like a combination of a paypal address and a bank account number. You give this to those who need to transfer BTC to you.

    Also, ALWAYS keep a backup
