CryptoPay Services Agreement
Please read this document carefully, as it sets out the terms and conditions on which CryptoPay Limited (referred to as "CryptoPay") will provide services to you through our websites:
In this document, references to we/our/us are to CryptoPay. Any references to Customer/you/your are references to you as a customer of CryptoPay and user of either or both Websites. Any references to the "Website" includes both the CryptoPay Website and the CryptoPay Instant Website.
This Agreement will govern the use of the Services provided through the Website operated by CryptoPay. By using the Website you agree to be bound by the terms and conditions set out on this webpage (the "Agreement"). This Agreement will come into effect when you confirm electronically on the Website that you agree to it. We recommend that you retain a copy of this Agreement, Fee Tariff and transaction records.
The services that are provided through the Website can only be used in a limited way as they only allow the Customer to acquire goods or services on this Website.
The risk of loss in trading or holding Bitcoin or any other cryptocurrency can be substantial. Cryptocurrency transactions are irrevocable and stolen or incorrectly transferred cryptocurrencies may be irretrievable. You cannot cancel, reverse, or change any transaction marked as complete or pending. You should therefore carefully consider whether trading, holding or transferring Bitcoin or any other cryptocurrency is suitable for you in light of your financial condition. In considering whether to trade or hold bitcoin, you should be aware that the price or value of Bitcoin or any other cryptocurrency can change rapidly, decrease, and potentially even fall to zero.
Use of cryptocurrency may be illegal in some jurisdictions. It is your responsibility to know the regulatory requirements concerning transactions with cryptocurrency in your jurisdiction before using the Services.
For the purposes of this Agreement a "Business Day" is any day which is not a Saturday, Sunday or public holiday in the UK and which the banks are open for business in London.

CryptoPay provides the following service to you through the CryptoPay Instant Website:

Together, the services set out in clauses 2.1.1 to 2.1.4 and 2.2.1 are referred to in this Agreement as the "Services".
CryptoPay may also offer additional services to those listed above in clauses 2.1.1 to 2.1.4 and 2.2 from time to time. Such additional services shall be provided under terms and conditions separate to this Agreement.
Customer registration process
To be eligible to become a Customer you must:
be at least 18 years old;
have capacity to enter into legally binding contracts; and
if you wish to use the Cryptocurrency Withdrawal services set out in clause 2.1.4, you must have an Eligible Bank Account (as defined in clause 3.2) that can be linked to the Cryptocurrency Withdrawal Services provided by CryptoPay under this Agreement (the "Linked Account").
The types of bank accounts that qualify as eligible bank accounts are Euro deposit accounts in the Customer’s name that can make or receive payments in the Single Euro Payments Area and are held with a bank in the United Kingdom or the Single Euro Payments Area ("Eligible Bank Accounts"). CryptoPay reserves the right to amend the types of bank accounts that qualify as Eligible Bank Accounts at any time.
To become a Customer you must also provide CryptoPay with the information that is requested as part of the account opening process. This includes the information to satisfy "know your client" and anti-money laundering checks. Failure to provide any information that CryptoPay reasonably requests from you pursuant to applicable money laundering laws and regulations after you have become a Customer shall be grounds for the suspension of the provision of Services to you (including access to your account) under clause 12 and/or the termination of this Agreement under clause 21. The nature and extent of the information you are required to provide may differ, for example, based on the Services provided to you under this Agreement and/or the means of payment you use.
Accessing your account through the Cryptopay Website
When applying to become a Customer to use the CryptoPay Website, you will be asked to create your individual Customer account ("Account") which will include a username and password ("Account Details"). Once registered you will be able to access your Account through the CryptoPay Website using your Account Details in accordance with this Agreement.
Each time you seek to access your Account we will check your identity by asking for your Account Details. As long as your correct Account Details are entered, we will assume that you are the person giving instructions and you will be liable for those instructions. You must therefore keep the Account Details secret and secure and make sure that they are not stored in a way that enables others to access them or impersonate you. In addition, if you disclose the Account Details to any person whom you authorise to access your Account, you are also responsible and liable for any access, use, misuse or disclosure of your Account Details and/or your Account by such person.
You must notify us by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org immediately if you discover or suspect:
the loss or disclosure to any unauthorised person of any Account Details;
any unauthorised access to your Account;
any other criminal or fraudulent activity relating to your Account; or
any other breach of security relating to your Account, whether physical or relating to computer or similar hardware or software.
If we receive such a notification from you or determine ourselves that the security of your Account Details may have been breached, you will not be able to access your Account until measures have been taken to verify your identity.
Unless and until you tell us that you believe that someone else knows the Account Details or can use your Account by impersonating you:
you will be responsible for any instruction which we receive and act on, even if it was not given by you; and
we will not be responsible for any unauthorised access to your Account or the information available in it.
Using the Cryptopay instant website
You are able to enter into a Cryptocurrency Instant Purchase without being required to open an Account. If you wish to use any of the Services offered through the CryptoPay Website, you will need to open an Account as set out in clause 4.
Once you have completed the customer registration process associated with the Services you would like to receive under this Agreement to our satisfaction and your Account has been opened, you will be able to purchase Cryptocurrencies from us through the CryptoPay Website, subject to the applicable fees which are set out in the tariff of fees ("Fee Tariff") which can be found on the CryptoPay Website. The price, exchange rate and amount of the Cryptocurrency that you wish to purchase will be confirmed through the Website at the time that you place an order for a Cryptocurrency Purchase.
There are two methods by which you can make a Cryptocurrency Purchase:
you may deposit fiat currency in to your Account by way of a bank transfer from an Eligible Bank Account and then use the "Exchange" functionality on your Account page to exchange this fiat currency for Cryptocurrency; or
you may select the "buy bitcoins" option accessible through your Account page and purchase Cryptocurrency using a credit or debit card.
The fees applicable to each method of Cryptocurrency Purchase are as set out in the Fee Tariff.
Acceptance by us of an order for a Cryptocurrency Purchase does not guarantee that you will receive the corresponding amount of Cryptocurrency into your Wallet (as defined below). The Cryptocurrency Purchase is conditional upon actual receipt by us of the funds from an Eligible Bank Account or by way of credit or debit card, as well as payment of any applicable fees.
Subject to clause 6.4 and the transaction being honoured by the Customer’s bank, card provider or other relevant party, Cryptocurrency Purchases will be credited to the Wallet as soon as possible once the Cryptocurrency Purchase has been confirmed by the Cryptocurrency network. Once submitted to a Cryptocurrency network, a Cryptocurrency Purchase will be unconfirmed for a period of time pending sufficient confirmation of the transaction by the Cryptocurrency network. Cryptocurrency transactions that are in a pending state will not be credited to the Wallet (as defined below).
Cryptocurrency instant Purchase
You will be able to purchase Cryptocurrencies from us through the CryptoPay Instant Website subject to the applicable fees which are set out in the Fee Tariff which can be found on the CryptoPay Instant Website. The price, exchange rate and amount of the Cryptocurrency that you wish to purchase will be confirmed through the Website at the time that you place an order for a Cryptocurrency Instant Purchase.
You can make a Cryptocurrency Instant Purchase using the instant bitcoin purchase option accessible through the CryptoPay Instant Website and purchase Cryptocurrency using a credit or debit card.
The fees applicable to each method of Cryptocurrency Instant Purchase are as set out in the Fee Tariff.
Acceptance by us of an order for a Cryptocurrency Instant Purchase does not guarantee that you will receive the corresponding amount of Cryptocurrency. The Cryptocurrency Instant Purchase is conditional upon actual receipt by us of the funds from your credit or debit card, as well as payment of any applicable fees.
Subject to clause 7.4 and the transaction being honoured by the Customer’s bank, card provider or other relevant party, Cryptocurrency Instant Purchases shall be credited to any Cryptocurrency wallet maintained and operated either by CryptoPay (if you also have an Account) or by a third party as soon as possible once the Cryptocurrency Instant Purchase has been confirmed by the Cryptocurrency network. Once submitted to a Cryptocurrency network, a Cryptocurrency Instant Purchase will be unconfirmed for a period of time pending sufficient confirmation of the transaction by the Cryptocurrency network. Cryptocurrency transactions that are in a pending state will not be credited to the wallet.
Once your Account has been opened you will have a digital wallet accessible through the Website where you can store your Cryptocurrency (the "Wallet").
The Customer has the option to create one or more sub-wallets within a Wallet in either US Dollar, Euro, Pound Sterling or a particular Cryptocurrency (each being a "Sub-Wallet"). The Customer can at any time manage the overall funds held in their Wallet by selling the funds they have in a Sub-Wallet to us and requesting that the proceeds are paid in a different currency into a different Sub-Wallet (a "Currency Exchange Transaction").
A Currency Exchange Transaction shall be subject to a fee equal to a percentage of the amount of the Currency Exchange Transaction (the "Exchange Fee") which is set out in the Fee Tariff. CryptoPay shall take payment of the Exchange Fee by deducting the relevant amount from the total of the Currency Exchange Transaction.
The exchange rate applied to a Currency Exchange Transaction will be provided to you through the Website as part of a Currency Exchange Transaction.
The Customer shall have no right to withdraw funds held in a Sub-Wallet other than by way of a Cryptocurrency Transfer on the terms set out in clause 9, Cryptocurrency Withdrawal on the terms set out in clause 10, or as otherwise permitted under terms and conditions separate to this Agreement.
Transfers between the Wallet and a Sub-Wallet, or between Sub-Wallets, shall take place immediately.
Each Sub-Wallet shall not be subject to any overdraft, advance, credit or discount.
Cryptocurrency (or part thereof) held in the Wallet or in a Sub-Wallet may be transferred to another customer’s Cryptocurrency wallet or an external Cryptocurrency wallet maintained and operated by a third party. CryptoPay shall specify the information required to effect a Cryptocurrency Transfer at the point of instruction but, as a minimum, CryptoPay shall require the:
address of the recipient’s wallet; and
amount to be transferred.
We may charge network fees (miner fees) to process a Cryptocurrency Transfer on your behalf. We will calculate the network fee at our discretion, although we will always notify you of the network fee at or before the time you authorise the Cryptocurrency Transfer. Once submitted to a Cryptocurrency network, a Cryptocurrency Transfer will be unconfirmed for a period of time pending sufficient confirmation of the transaction by the Cryptocurrency network. Cryptocurrency transactions that are in a pending state will not be transferred to the Wallet until such time as the Cryptocurrency transaction has been confirmed.
The fees applicable to a Cryptocurrency Transfer are as set out in the Fee Tariff.
If the Customer instructs a Cryptocurrency Transfer in respect of amounts held in a Sub-Wallet which relates to a currency which is different to the Cryptocurrency to be transferred, a Currency Exchange Transaction will take place prior to transfer (and will thus incur an Exchange Fee).
CryptoPay has no control over, or liability for, the delivery, quality, safety, legality or any other aspect of any goods or services that you may purchase or sell to or from a third party using Cryptocurrency Transfer. We will process Cryptocurrency transaction in accordance with the instructions we receive from you. You should verify all transaction information prior to submitting instructions to us. We do not guarantee the identity of any user, receiver, requestee or other party.
Any Cryptocurrency Withdrawals must take place from the Euro Sub-Wallet.
If the Customer instructs a Cryptocurrency Withdrawal in respect of amounts held other than in the Euro Sub-Wallet, a Currency Exchange Transaction must first take place where such amounts will be converted to Euros and placed in the Euro Sub-Wallet at the exchange rate applicable immediately prior to the Cryptocurrency Withdrawal being made (and will incur an Exchange Fee).
The Customer shall be entitled to make a Cryptocurrency Withdrawal from the Euro Sub-Wallet to a Linked Account only. For the avoidance of doubt, a Cryptocurrency Withdrawal cannot be made to any account other than a Linked Account.
Cryptocurrency Withdrawals may be subject to such minimum and (cumulative) maximum daily amounts as CryptoPay may specify from time to time. Information on any applicable minimum and maximum amounts shall be stated on the Website.
CryptoPay will deduct a "Withdrawal Fee" in accordance with the Fee Tariff from all Cryptocurrency Withdrawals.
Cryptocurrency Withdrawals will, subject to orders to make a Cryptocurrency Withdrawal being received between 09am and 12pm UK time on a Business Day, be processed on the date of request. All other Cryptocurrency Withdrawals will be processed on the next Business Day.
Incorrect or unauthorised Cryptocurrency transfers or Cryptocurrency withdrawals
In the event that you become aware of any incorrect or unauthorised Cryptocurrency Withdrawals or Cryptocurrency Transfer, you must notify us this immediately by email to email@example.com. Prior to receiving such notification, we will not be responsible for any loss or damage that you suffer as a result of a Cryptocurrency Withdrawal or Cryptocurrency Transfer which was executed without your consent.
