FOLLOW PAYMENT INSTRUCTIONS

Now to pay your funds, send a wire transfer denominated in USD to Silvergate Bank by simply following the payment instructions provided under Payment Instructions.

 

When you buy BTC, Xapo will maintain the BTC price fixed for a 24 hour period until you initiate payment.
Funding needs to be provided within 24 business hours.

Beyond this deadline, the transaction will be canceled and the BTC price will be released and updated to its current rate.

 

Important. Do not send any payments from a business account unless it has already been registered and approved by Xapo.

We will delay or reject the processing of your funds if they are sent from an account that is NOT in your name. Make sure that the bank account is under the same name as your Xapo account. Otherwise, the payment will not go through and additional charges may apply.

 

a. Make sure to send the exact amount as well as pay any applicable fees on your end. Your account will be credited with the exact amount we receive.

 

b. You must initiate payment within the next 24 hours otherwise conditions for this order may change without advance notice.

 

c. There will be a significant delay in processing or even rejection of your funds (in which case you have to cover any applicable costs we would have to incur in order to return them) if they are sent from an account that is not in your name.

 

d. Please also include the reference code (exactly as shown) in your transfer.

 

If you correctly follow the payment instructions, your funds will be available as soon as the payment has been received and processed by our team!

 

Please note that if you send a wire transfer, they generally can take up to 72 business hours. After Xapo has received the payment for your order, the funds will be released accordingly.
