How to use bitcoins

Bitcoins are a very effective way how to send money. You can save a lot of money on payment fees if you use Bitcoins to top up your money.

You don't need to be scared BTC will lose its value - simply buy BTC just before transfer to Tiptrans and we will credit you actual value in USD.

If you are new to Bitcoins, we will help you to understand how it works.

  1. You need purchase Bitcoins (we suggest to use a Coinbase which is one of the largest BTC exchange, with outstanding security). Alternatively, you might use service Local Bitcoins, which will enable you to buy BTC from someone near you.
  2. Go to "top up" page at Tiptrans and select Bitcoin as a payment method. Our system will generate an invoice for your with our Bitcoin wallet ID. You just transfer BTC from your wallet to ours.
  3. Bitcoin payments are usually processed within 30 minutes. We will credit your balance automatically once transaction is confirmed by Bitcoin network

Please note: always send us the exact amount in BTC (or "bits") as shown on the invoice. If you send us underpayment or overpayment we will need to review transaction manually so it might take up to 3 days before you will see your money on the balance.
