How long does it take to receive my crypto?

This depends on several factors, including the fiat onramp and the payment method used, as well as your location.

Generally, card payments are processed almost immediately. However, it’s common for some transactions to take a few hours. Bank transfers can take anywhere between 1 and 3 (business) days. The crypto is released once all fraud and KYC checks have been completed. For first-time transactions, this can take between a few minutes and a few hours, depending on additional verification that may be required. Most subsequent transactions will be processed within about 15 minutes.

  • In cases of heavy network congestion (which can happen with Ethereum), the on-chain transaction might take longer to execute. Bitcoin generally takes up to an hour to arrive.
  • If you paid with a credit card, your money doesn’t leave your account until the crypto is sent. If something goes wrong, the temporary charge placed on your card/account is removed.
  • If you’ve been waiting longer than expected, you can check the status of your transaction with the link sent to you by email (if supported by your chosen onramp). The transaction tracker will tell you if there are any extra steps needed, or if your payment method has been declined for any reason, and the order has failed.
  • It’s common for some transactions to take a few hours in the case of credit cards. When using bank transfers, transactions can take 1-3 days.
