How to deposit cash into EXMO to buy Bitcoin using AdvCash, Qiwi or other electronic money


As an example, we shall look at several step-by-step scenarios for topping up your EXMO balance.

Let us assume you wish to pay cash rubles into EXMO. In this case, you must:

1. Go to the Wallet menu and click on Top Up opposite RUB currency (click to select a specific wallet).

2. Register in an e-wallet which is currently available for pay-ins (for example, you may see AdvCash, Qiwi, Payeer and Yandex.Money listed amongst the active systems for paying into the crypto exchange). The registration link is above and to the right of the top-up form.

3. Top up your account in the selected e-wallet with cash.
a. YM cash top-ups can be performed in certain banks (including Sberbank), in Yevroset stores and in some terminals and post office branches (in the last two cases there may be delays or substantial commissions).Residents of Kazakhstan, the Russian Federation and Belarus can also use the offices of the Contact payment system.

You can find more information on YM top-up points in your town on the Yandex.Money website by going to the Top-Up menu and selecting By Cash. For information on topping up via Contact or Russian Post, select Transfer Systems in the menu below the card.

b. Qiwi wallets can usually be topped up via certain terminals, in Contact offices and in some phone stores such as Yevroset or Svyaznoy. To see a map with the required information, click on Wallet Top-Up on the Qiwi website and select Via Partners.

c. If you want to transfer funds from AdvCash to EXMO in rubles, you should be aware that it is possible to top up your AdvCash wallet via some terminals using a special top-up service provided by AdvCash’s partner (for more detailed information study the Account Top-Up section of the AdvCash website).

Thus, if you wish to exchange AdvCash for Bitcoin you should decide in advance how convenient it is for you to top up AdvCash with cash.

If you are not entirely sure that you will be able to successfully top up an e-wallet with cash at the first attempt, it is best to try transferring a small amount first.

4. Once you are sure the funds have been credited, return to the Wallet menu on EXMO, enter the top-up amount, click on Top-Up Balance and then follow the on-screen instructions. Remember that EXMO does not accept top-ups directly via terminals – you need to have funds in your wallet. It may take some time for the funds to be credited.

5. Go to the Trading page on the Exchange page and buy cryptocurrency. If it is not possible to make a direct purchase (you cannot buy Doge with rubles, for example), buy Bitcoins first and then exchange them for the currency you require. Thus, to buy Bitcoin with cash you must use an e-wallet as an intermediary - for example by exchanging Qiwi for BTC, as described above.

How to top up your Bitcoin wallet via Qiwi


If you already have funds in the necessary e-wallet you can omit the first few steps described above. The process for buying Bitcoin with Qiwi, for example, will then be as follows:

1. In the Wallet menu on EXMO, enter the top-up amount, click on Top Up Balance and then follow the on-screen instructions. Remember that EXMO does not accept top-ups directly via terminals – you need to have funds in your wallet. It may take some time for the funds to be credited.

2. Go to the Trading or Exchange page and buy the cryptocurrency you require. If it is not possible to buy it directly (you cannot buy Doge for rubles, for example), buy Bitcoins first and then exchange them for the currency you require.

How to buy Bitcoin with dollars or rubles from a bank card


Let us assume you have decided to buy cryptocurrency using a plastic card - for example, to buy Bitcoin with MasterCard. To transfer funds to EXMO directly from a bank account, verification is needed. For those who are not yet ready for verification we shall look at a scenario that does not require it – crediting funds by transiting them through a suitable e-wallet (you will recall that unverified EXMO clients can only pay funds in directly from Ukrainian plastic cards).

1. Go to the Wallet menu and click on Top Up opposite the currency you wish to pay in.

2. Register in an e-wallet that is currently available for pay-ins, such as Qiwi, Yandex.Money or Payeer. The registration link is above and to the right of the top-up form (click to select a specific wallet). If verification is required to use an e-wallet – for example, if you are trying to exchange Neteller for Bitcoin - you will see a notification of this when selecting the relevant wallet.

3. You can also top up your e-wallet via your bank account (the required menu will probably be entitled Electronic Money) and via the top-up menu on the e-wallet website (in the latter case, you need to enter your card details in the payment form in the same way as for ordinary online purchases). The latter option (which is offered by the Qiwi system, in particular) can be especially convenient if, for example, you are unable to top up the necessary e-wallet with rubles from your bank account because you do not have a ruble account). In this case, when completing the form on the Qiwi website, change the currency to be received to what you require (dollars, euros or tenge) and you will subsequently be able to exchange the funds credited to Qiwi within the wallet, if necessary (Transfer Between Accounts in the drop-down menu).

4. Once you are sure the funds have been credited, return to the Wallet menu on EXMO, enter the top-up amount, click on Top-Up Balance and then follow the on-screen instructions. Remember that EXMO does not accept top-ups directly via terminals – you need to have funds in your wallet. It may take some time for the funds to be credited.

5. Go to the Trading or Exchange page and buy the cryptocurrency you require. If it is not possible buy it directly (you cannot buy Doge for rubles, for example), buy Bitcoins with dollars first and then exchange them for the currency you require.

In our example we have described how to top up Bitcoin using MasterCard, but in fact the instructions given are applicable in a much wider range of circumstances. You can buy Bitcoin with Visa in exactly the same way (there is little difference between Visa and MasterCard), or you can buy Ripple with Visa or acquire any other cryptocurrency available on EXMO.

You now know how to buy Ripple with dollars or, for example, Ethereum with rubles. Purchased cryptocurrencies can be kept on EXMO (read the account safety rules) or withdrawn to a local or hardware wallet.

Selling cryptocurrency in EXMO trading is also easy, as is the subsequent withdrawal of funds - for example, withdrawing Bitcoins to a Visa card. First, sell the Bitcoins for rubles or dollars, which will be credited to your balance, and then in the Wallet menu withdraw the funds to your card.
