Please note that although you may still be receiving SMS messages from other sources, power cycling your phone is an important step that will eliminate network issues that could be the causing message failures.

How much bitcoin can I buy?

We currently have a minimum order size of $50 AUD and a daily maximum of $20,000 AUD.

Can I cancel an order once it has been placed?

Please take care when placing your orders as once an order has been submitted and payment has been received, it is often not possible to have it cancelled or reversed.

Why does my wallet display a different currency amount from my order?

The constantly fluctuating value of bitcoin means that the currency value of your order will be a constantly changing value. We will always transfer the amount of BTC as calculated using the current rate at the time of purchase.
You should also ensure you are viewing the balance of your wallet in Australian Dollars (AUD) as some services will default to United States Dollars (USD).
