You are going to exchange funds on Coinmate, therefore it is necessary to have some positive balance to do the actual exchange with.

We offer various ways of doing so, you can use Sofort, credit card, International or SEPA payments to fund your Coinmate balance.

The amount of money that could be transferred depend on the region you are verified from and the level of verification itself. You can find these limits in the Account – Limits menu, or on the deposit form itself. We display the remaining 24 hours turnover limit there to make things easier.

Please be careful to copy all the information precisely and to input the payment reference, that is the main part used to recognize the payment. Also, please note that it is not possible to deposit or withdraw from other than your accounts, such payments has to be returned right away.

Either way you used bank transfer or credit card for example, now you have some FIAT funds on Coinmate. There are two ways how to purchase cryptocurrency now. You can either use Trade, which we will talk about in more detail later, or Quick Buy function.

Trade is a standard exchange service, where you state your price for which you want to buy your desired amount of crypto. Once the market meets your offer, it is traded and desired coins lands to your Coinmate balance.
