Buy crypto in EUR and GBP instantly

We now support free, instant and 24/7 bank transfers for transactions in Euro and British Pound!

March 15th 2023

Users from Europe and from the United Kingdom can now enjoy our crypto-fiat exchange service with instant and free transfers.

Until now, we were supporting regular SEPA transfers to buy and sell crypto in euro, which were free but somewhat slow (typically 1-2 business days). For GBP transactions, we were only supporting international bank transfers that were both slow and expensive (SWIFT fees).

The faster alternative was to pay by card to benefit from an instant payment, but with a higher fee.

Today, we're happy to announce that we support instant EUR and instant GBP transfers, through the SEPA Instant and Faster Payments networks respectively.

As long as your bank supports them too, you can now choose the option to use instant transfers when buying crypto with us in euro or in pound:

Important notes

  • For the time being, there is a EUR/GBP 1,000 limit per transaction when using instant bank transfers.
  • The service provider that enables us to offer instant EUR/GBP transfers is regulated in the EU. In consequence, they do not accept KYC-less transactions and instant transfers are only available to users who have verified their identity with us. Here's a summary table of the features accessible with or without identity verification (KYC):

  • If you don't want to verify your identity, you can continue using our service as before through regular SEPA transfers and SWIFT GBP transfers to/from our Swiss bank accounts.
  • When buying crypto through instant transfers, we will instantly receive your payment but it won't guarantee that we will instantly deliver your crypto. We will do so on a best effort basis, but it won't always be possible (for compliance or liquidity reasons, for instance).
  • When using instant transfers, your data must be shared with our EU service provider and isn't protected by Swiss privacy anymore:
