Why is SOFORT/GiroPay not instant

Answer: Because a SOFORT/GiroPay payment to the Netherlands takes approximately three working days.

Update: The payment method of SOFORT/Giropay will be removed on Tuesday October 5th, 2021.

Sofort and GiroPay payment methods are widely used in German-speaking countries. Because this transaction crosses the border, the transaction can take up to three working days.

Sofort and Giropay orders up to EUR 1.000 in open payments are completed instantly. We will deliver your crypto before we receive your payment. If you exceed the limit of EUR 1.000 in open payments, the orders will only be processed once the payments have been received. Your order will show the status 'Awaiting payment' then.

The rate of your order is set at the moment you created the order.
