    1. Domestic bank transfer: 1 business day to be credited to your CEX.IO account by our financial officer.

  • Payment card:
    1. your card verification is still incomplete - if the verification has just been submitted - please allow our compliance team 15-20 minutes to process it. In case your application could not be approved right away our compliance team will inform you via email on what needs to be corrected. 
    2. your card is verified, but the deposit requires clearing from our financial officer due to compliance policies - this is an unusual case but if you encounter it - please contact our support team

  • Bank transfer: Your withdrawal is being processed by financial officer. Withdrawal requests are processed within 24 hours on business days, but the time can be expanded in case the payment details are incorrect or incomplete, or if the transaction is rejected. In order to avoid delays - please check your payment details with your bank. After the payment is processed by financial agent it will take some time to reach your account - it depends on bank processing.
