Still got questions?


•  Business development

Which countries do you support and exclude?

Over the past 7 years we’ve specialized in the European region, which means that we currently support al the 33 SEPA countries. Because of that focus and experience, we can safely say that we offer the number one fiat gateway for the entire European cryptomarket. That being said: we expect to serve other parts of the world somewhere in Q4.

Do you offer an offramp (crypto to fiat) as well?

Yes. It is possible to both buy and sell cryptocurrencies.

What is the payout schedule?

BTC Direct will pay out on a monthly basis. We have no minimum or maximum amount for paying you out.

How long will it take for users to receive the transacted amount of Cryptocurrency?

We deliver from out of our own stock so we can offer instant coin delivery to the end users. Therefore a transaction will take no longer than a maximum of 10 minutes for altcoins and 15 minutes for bitcoin.

What is the minimum and maximum amount for a transaction?

The minimum amount is 30 euros. The maximum amount is 10K on a daily basis.

•  Legal & compliance

Is it a white-label solution or is there a necessity for displaying the BTC Direct brand?

Ofcourse we are willing to white label our solution as much as legally possible. This means that you are free to adjust the flow to your own color palette, brand font and logo where this is legally applicable.

Do users have to go through KYC every time they transact?

In the entire region that we serve it is required to have a KYC policy. Your users only have to go through our KYC process one single time. We have a 10 minute SLA on the onboarding process so your users are ready to buy within just a few moments. From there on, every repeated buy and sell order from within your application will be instant, without going through KYC and, due to our xPub connection with your wallet, even without logging in.

Who is your KYC provider?

We work with Mitek for our KYC checks. By integrating with them we have a fully automated onboarding process with a 10 minute SLA and a 75% success rate on onboarding new users.

Can a user perform a chargeback?

A refund or chargeback cannot be requested by the user, so only BTC Direct will be able to decide whether a refund will be executed.

What is the process for user refunds (for our tracking purposes)?

A refund can be executed by BTC Direct up until the point where the cryptocurrencies have been sent. This will happen, for example, when we have determined that the transaction is fraud-related or when a transaction is in conflict with our Terms of Service. An example of such a conflict is a payment from a bank account that is not registered to the user. Refunds are executed via our PSP and they usually take around one or two business days to be completed. Since you as an API partner won’t have to settle a transaction, you won’t have to worry about anything that is related to refunds either.

•  Tech & development

Which API implementation flows do you offer?

In our opinion there are two ways of implementing our API. The difference is based upon what kind of unique identifier is being used to identify the users. This can be xPub based or user-credentials via oAUTH based.

What are your geoblocking rules?

We don’t have a geoblocking rule. However, users will only be able to onboard via our API when they have an identity document that is accepted in the European SEPA region.

Does your API have CORS enabled?

Since it concerns a restful API, we haven’t enabled CORS.

Do you have a sandbox / demo app we could check out (without writing code)?

We can give your dev team a demo via our internal sandbox.

•  Customer support

How do users report if they can't receive the purchased amount of Cryptocurrency?

We offer a 7 days a week, multilingual customer support. Your users can always contact our customer support when it comes to questions related to our services (fiat onramp and offramp).

Which languages do you support?

We offer a 7 days a week, multilingual customer support for the following languages: Englisch, French, German, Spanish, Dutch and Portuguese. More languages will follow in the nearby future.
