Are you considering buying a Ledger hardware wallet? If so, then you may be wondering where to buy a Ledger hardware wallet. The answer is not always straightforward, as there are various online and offline vendors that offer Ledger products.
To ensure you get the best deal and a reputable product for your money, I’m going to show you exactly where to buy a Ledger wallet.
Where Should I Buy a Ledger Hardware Wallet?
You should only buy a Ledger hardware wallet directly from the manufacturer or an authorized store or online retailer. This ensures that you get a genuine product, free from potential tampering or counterfeiting. If you order from another website like Amazon, you risk buying a compromised device.
To be clear, the official website for Ledger is “Ledger.com“. If you accidentally go to a different domain ending, such as “.org”, you could get scammed.
The manufacturer remains the most secure option for buying a Ledger device because at least you know that it has only come in direct contact with employees of the company.
That’s not to say that an employee couldn’t tamper with a device before shipping it, but at least you know who to report to if it shows up damaged or opened.
Are Ledger Wallets Sold in Stores?
Ledger wallets are available in several stores. You can find their hardware wallets in a variety of reputable retailers including Best Buy, Walmart, and Target in the US and Canada. You can also find Ledger-authorized resellers online who provide secure and reliable access to their wallets.
I think it’s safe to assume that stores with a solid reputation, like Best Buy and Walmart, are safe to buy your Ledger wallet from.
However, it’s still worth double-checking everything before purchase and once you get the device home.
Further down I’ll walk you through the various steps used to determine if your Ledger wallet is genuine or not, or if it has been compromised in some way.
Along with these popular stores, Ledger also has several authorized resellers you could potentially order from.

Can I Buy a Ledger Wallet on Amazon?
You can buy a Ledger Wallet on Amazon. However, be aware that there is an increased risk of fraud when buying one of their wallets on Amazon. To ensure you’re getting a genuine product, it’s best to purchase a device directly from the manufacturer’s website or in person at an approved retailer.
If you really want to get your wallet on Amazon, make sure to only buy it from Ledger’s official Amazon storefront.
If you buy a device from any other account on Amazon that’s not the official page, you’ll more than likely get scammed.
It’s always a good idea to read the reviews on Amazon before purchasing your wallet as the official page has thousands of reviews you can check.
Where Not to Buy a Ledger Device
You should never buy a Ledger hardware wallet from an unauthorized reseller, an unapproved Amazon account, or someone you met online. Otherwise, you may receive counterfeit or damaged products. You can only trust you’ll get a legitimate, high-quality product when you buy from Ledger directly.
Seriously, don’t do it.
I know it can be tempting to go for the better deal or order the one that says it will arrive quicker, but when it comes to hardware wallets, the risk is not worth the unlikely reward.
Especially if you plan to store valuable assets like NFTs and crypto in your wallet, and a lot of them.
The way that I look at it is if you can afford to buy digital assets, then you can afford to buy a genuine Ledger wallet from a reputable supplier.
How to Tell if Your Ledger Wallet Is Genuine
To determine if your Ledger wallet is genuine, be sure to check the origin of the product. Your unopened box should include the wallet, USB cable, and recovery sheet which should be in perfect condition. Advanced users can check the hardware integrity of the device for further assurance.
Below is a checklist you can use to ensure your device is genuine.
- Buy from an official Ledger reseller.
- Check the origin of your device.
- Check to ensure all contents are in the box. (Device, USB Type-C cable, an envelope, Get started leaflet, Use Care and Regulatory Statement, leaflet, 3 Recovery sheets, keychain, and Ledger-branded cardboard box and sleeve.)
- Make sure your recovery sheets are blank.
- Check for factory settings. (Ensure the PIN code was not configured by someone else—always create your own PIN). If a PIN was already set, don’t use the device.
- Check authenticity using Ledger Live. (Only genuine Ledger devices can provide the proof necessary to pass the check issued by Ledger Live).
- Check hardware integrity (advanced users only). By following these detailed instructions, you can open your Ledger device to ensure nothing has been added or taken out.
Basically, if you find something off about your Ledger hardware wallet, don’t use it! Instead, reach out to Ledger directly for assistance or to initiate a refund.
Where Are Ledger Hardware Wallets Made?
Ledger hardware wallets are made with a combination of components sourced and manufactured in France and Asia. The assembly and testing take place in France. Ledger is constantly looking to improve their manufacturing capabilities and balance production across other countries and platforms.
How Long Does it Take to Get a Ledger Wallet?
It usually takes around 2-5 business days to get a Ledger Wallet shipped to you if you’re located in the EU. If you’re outside the EU, it can take up to 14 business days. All Ledger Wallets are shipped from Vierzon, France so if you’re in the US, it will be closer to the 14-day mark.
The packaging should arrive with a tamper-proof seal (although I know this hasn’t always been the case) to ensure that they arrive in perfect condition.
All wallets are shipped out with the latest firmware installed, so you can easily and securely store and manage your cryptocurrency the moment it lands on your doorstep.
