  • Merchants with the blue tick are designated merchants who have paid a certain amount of deposit and hence more credible;
  • Always double-check if the payment has arrived before releasing the tokens;
  • Do NOT select “I have paid”, if you have not completed the payment;
  • If the buyer selected “I have paid” but you did not receive any payment, select “Dispute” for the help from our customer support;
  • Do NOT include any wordings about digital assets like Bitcoin, BTC, or crypto in the bank transfer note to avoid transaction suspension by the bank.
