How am I protected from being scammed?

All online trades are protected by escrow. When a trade is started the amount of CryptoCurrency coin for the trade is automatically reserved from the seller's LocalCoinBazar.com Wallet. This means that if the seller runs away with your money and does not release your CryptoCurrency coin LocalCoinBazar.com support can release the CryptoCurrency coin to you from escrow. If you're selling CryptoCurrency coin, never release the escrow before you know that you have received money from the CryptoCurrency coin buyer.

Please note that local trades do not have escrow enabled by default.

Can I buy less than one CryptoCurrency coin? How much does a CryptoCurrency coin cost?

Next to each advertisement on the website the price of a that specific CryptoCurrency coin coin for that advertisement is shown as currency per CryptoCurrency coin. For example, if we are buying Litecoin with the currency US dollars the price would be shown as 102 USD / LTC. This means that if I wanted to buy 1 Litecoin it would cost me 102 US dollars.

Can I buy less than 1 CryptoCurrency coin?

Absolutely! In each advertisement you see what's called limits. That shows you the least and the most amount of that specific CryptoCurrency coin that you can buy from that advertisement.
For Example, if you buying Litecoin than one Litecoin can be divided into much much smaller pieces, the smallest piece and is the same as 0.00001LTC.

Why is it so expensive to buy with Paypal? or Credit card? Why are some payment methods cheaper?

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

That is why we recommend for you to get the best price to pay using a hard to reverse payment method, such as Cash Deposit, bank transfers and mobile payments (Like Qiwi in Russia & PayTM in India). When you search to buy CryptoCurrency, select All online offers as a payment method and you will see offers for all payment methods and you can choose one that is convenient for you and offers a better price.

What happens when I pay, and the seller doesn't give me my CryptoCurrency? All our online trades are protected with escrow to prevent this from happening. When the trade is started, the CryptoCurrency coin amount for the trade is taken from the sellers wallet and is held by LocalCoinBazar.com for the entire time of the trade. If the seller is trying to scam you, it's easy for you to open a dispute on the trade and our support staff will contact you to ask for proof that you have paid and then give the CryptoCurrency coin to you.

What’s the difference between an online trade and a local trade?

We have two different types of trades on LocalCoinBazar.com, local trades and online trades.

Online trades occur online entirely through our trading platform without you ever meeting your trading partner. Escrow is automatically enabled and funded for Online trades, meaning that as a buyer you're automatically protected by our escrow system. Most of trades on LocalCoinBazar.com are online trades.

Local trades are meant to be carried out face-to-face, and escrow is not automatically enabled. Because of this it is not safe to pay the seller using an online payment method in a local trade.

Online payment methods are, for example, bank transfers; PayPal; Gift card codes etc.
