Cryptomate is an easy to use platform that allows British users to purchase cryptocurrency via instant bank transfer. The service was launched to help bridge the gap between GBP and cryptocurrency exchange within the UK and to make the most popular digital currencies available to almost anyone with online banking.
We currently only accept UK online bank transfers. We chose this method of payment as it is completely secure, instant and simple to use. Thanks to Faster Payments, our bank transfers are near instant - meaning you can purchase in real-time.
All fees are incorporated into the price. You will receive exactly the amount you see on the order form. We sell at a variable percentage above market rate to cover our operating costs and to allow our vendors to make a profit. The trade-off for this is ease of use and the speed of the service - we're not the cheapest, but we try to be the best!
We always aim for your coins to be in your wallet within two hours of you placing your order, but it could be as little as 15 minutes. As all our transactions are processed manually by our trusted vendors for security purposes, this only holds true during operating hours; you can see when our service is online at the top of the page.
If you coins have not arrived within 2 hours you should contact customer support using the email address email@example.com and include the order reference code in your email.
No, you can only buy from Cryptomate. To sell you'll need to use another service.
Your wallet address (or public key) is generated by your wallet. You can either download a wallet or use one from an exchange. A wallet is used to store your cryptocurrency, but no one wallet can hold every coin. Most will only work for one cryptocurrency. You can find recommended wallets on the wallets page.
The order minimum is £50 for any order, the order maximum for unverified users is £200 per order. This can be raised to £1000 for verified customers and they can order as many times as they want.
If you want us to add a coin that is not listed on the site you can email us on firstname.lastname@example.org. While we're always open to suggestions, we can't guarantee your coin will be listed.
