Which are your recommended places to buy bitcoin in 2017?

I'm interested in buying to hold for a year or two. I know that the price is high and it's recommended to only buy bitcoin in "the dip". However I strongly feel it will go higher.

Having read through a couple of forums and wikis, I noticed that most of the recommended places to buy bitcoin are no longer online or have shut down. I saw this with bitmarket, tradehill, and (famous?) mtgox websites all no longer sell btc. It seems there is a big turnover of exchanges over the years.

Which sites do initiated users recommend for purchasing bitcoin easily in 2017? I may go on to try trading too, so any advice for this would be great also.

Time-frame within which a bitcoin price, converted from other currency, is valid — what is recommended?

On my website I’m setting bitcoin payment by myself. The prices are in USD/GBP/JPY and a few other major currencies. But the payments should be in bitcoins.

When I’m generating an invoice for a client and converting a USD price to bitcoins, what do you think will be wise time-period within which a bitcoin price is valid? Approximately. Meaning, it’s very unlikely to go up or down and at the same time isn’t too short. 1 or 2 hours? 5 hours? Or 10 minutes? Is there an official recommendation about that?
