How long does one "sell Bitcoin" order take?

We are processing sell orders instantly after receiving the payment in electronic currency from you. When you withdraw your cryptocurrencies, certain amount of network confirmations are required before it will be completed. We consider bitcoins transfer being completed after we’ll get 2 confirmations (on average it takes about 15 minutes). But the time between we send money and you receive it depends on withdrawal method:

  • Credit/Debit Card - not so fast, usually funding to credit/debit card takes 1-3 business days, but very convenient because using this payment method you can get money anywhere in the world, all you need is to have credit card;
  • SWIFT – can be quite slow – 1-3 business days is usually enough, this method is available in any bank and rather economic for bigger amounts;
  • SEPA  – good compromise between speed and price – takes no longer than 1-2 business days; available only for EUR transfers in European Zone;
  • Local bank transfers - in some countries we provide this fast method with minimal fees using local currency, it takes from some minutes to 1-3 business days;
  • Instant money transfers - right after your bitcoin transfer has 2 confirmations, the transfer will be automatically sent, and you’ll be able to collect the cash instantly. 


We are in the process of negotiation with many other payment systems, and a lot of them will be added to our service in near future; please check our updates!
