How am I protected from being scammed?

All trades are protected by escrow. When a trade is started the amount of bitcoins for the trade is automatically reserved from the seller's wallet. If the seller runs away with your money and does not release your bitcoins Apercoin support can release the bitcoins to you from escrow. If you are selling bitcoins, never release the escrow before you received money from the buyer.


Deals

Why deals have different rates?

One of the best features of Bitcoin is that it gives you control over your money, but it is also this feature that makes it very different from traditional money. Bitcoin transactions are irreversible, most traditional payment methods can be charged back. It creates risk for the person selling the Bitcoins, as PayPal or a bank can take the money someone paid him out of his account after he has sent away the Bitcoins. That is why traders need to have a high price for specific payment methods, to protect themselves against this risk.

That is why we recommend you to get the best price to pay using a hard to reverse payment methods, such as Cash Deposit, bank transfers and mobile payments. When you search to buy bitcoins, select convenient payment method with the best exchange rate.
