Broker Overview

Jump to navigation Jump to search

Once you are authorised as a seller, you should have access to the Seller button in the navigation panel.


Each seller has one or more offers available, which is a combination of countries and currency. For instance, you might have an offer available called GBP / GB which means that it is available for people paying in Great British Pounds in Great Britain (which for purposes here includes North Ireland, Isle of Man, Jersey and Guernsey).

How a seller gets chosen

If you are the seller that fits the following criteria, the buyer will be given your payment details and the trade will be yours to complete:

  • The country matches your offer country.
  • The currency matches your offer currency.
  • You have this amount of Bitcoins available (taking away any coins in escrow).
  • You are offering coins at a price cheaper than anyone else.
