Frequently Asked Questions

How long can it take for my withdrawal to arrive on my external wallet?

Your digital currency should arrive within two hours to the designated address. The timing depends mainly on how quickly your transaction is confirmed by the network, which differs for every digital currency and may change from time to time. If your digital currency hasn't arrived within two hours, please consult our article on possible reasons for delayed digital currency transfers. 

I have transferred digital currency to the wrong address. How do I get it back?

Given the irreversible character of the blockchain, it is not possible to cancel a transaction after it has been executed. Therefore it is key to be extremely accurate when you transfer digital currency. It is recommended to always ensure that the address to which you are planning to transfer your digital currency is exactly the same address as that of the receiver and to only then confirm the order. Please always copy and paste the wallet address instead of reproducing it to avoid potential typing errors.

Potential solution
Suppose your digital currency has already been transferred to an incorrect wallet address. In that case, the only way to get it back is to contact the receiving party and ask them to return your digital currency. If you are unfamiliar with the owner of the wallet address, there is nothing you can do to get your digital currency back.

What are the withdrawal fees at Bitvavo?

Sending digital currency via the blockchain network costs a fee paid to miners that is unrelated to Bitvavo and its operations. An indicative overview of the costs for transferring digital currency to a different wallet address can be found here.

Wich blockchain networks are used for withdrawals?
