I am trying to make my first Bitcoin transaction, so far unsuccessfully.

 

I have set up an account with blockchain

 

I have my BTC address and the vendor's BTC address.

 

But I need to know how to pay for merchandise:

I thought blockchain could use a credit card number, but so far it is refusing to proceed with the transaction.

Do I have to buy bitcoins from an external site, then put them into my wallet, then buy the merchandise?

 

I have also read in a tutorial that I must first buy a small amount of bitcoin to activate the wallet. Why not just buy the entire amount of my purchase in Bitcoins then transfer those over to the vendor when I make my purchase?

 

Assistance would be appreciated.

Thanks. I'm looking at Coinbase.
