Order and verification process
As soon as we receive the payment for an order we will:
- acknowledge acceptance of the order by email
- review the order in line with our compliance policy
- send a verification request by email where applicable
- review the KYC-information within 1 business day after submittal of the complete documents
- approve and prepare the order for delivery.
Digital currencies will be sent to the receiving wallet address as provided to us on our redemption page. Digital currency transactions cannot be reversed, exchanged or returned. bit4coin gift vouchers remain valid for 2 years from the date of purchase.
Limits and enhanced due diligence
We usually request proof of identity for all order amounts above €50 per week. The process requires customers to provide the following verification information:
- A copy of the customer’s passport or identity card (upload both sides) in high resolution (your social security number, SSN may be hidden);
- If an identity card contains address details, then it may be accepted as "proof of address". Otherwise customers need to submit a recent document with the address of the customer (e.g. a utility bill that states the name and address in clearly visible letters).
In addition, bit4coin’s compliance team may request additional information (such as video identification) even for customers below the stated limits if transactions appear to contain risk.
If for any reason the customer refuses to provide the requested documents, bit4coin will unfortunately have to cancel the order and refund the full amount to the customer’s bank account. In these cases, bit4coin will request verification for any future order amount.
bit4coin offers accounts for businesses. The account validation process follows a stringent customer identification procedure via business registration and incorporation documents, as well as identification of the business’s authorised representatives and ultimate beneficial owners (UBOs).
