Bisq offers several payment methods to buy and sell bitcoin for fiat currencies or other cryptocurrencies.

Every offer on Bisq designates a payment method for traders to settle payments. The Bisq software does not actually integrate with any payment methods—all non-bitcoin fund transfers are made outside of Bisq software.

Unlike cryptocurrency transfers, many fiat payment transfers are riddled with flaws and limitations that require Bisq to employ special measures to encourage fair and honest trades. One of these measures is lower per-trade limits, which are covered below. Another key measure is account signing.

Fiat payment methods

The payment methods vary in chargeback risk, regional availability, transaction size, fees, privacy, verifiability, and other characteristics. The top consideration for maintaining payment methods is chargeback risk. PayPal, Venmo, and Cash App are not supported on Bisq because chargebacks for payments made with those services are relatively easy.

We welcome suggestions for new payment methods on Bisq, especially for those that enable new markets. Documentation on the criteria and process for adding new payment methods is found here. Please also feel free to make suggestions by reaching out on Keybase in the #payment-methods channel.

Below is a list of fiat payment methods Bisq currently supports.

Note: The maximum trade sizes listed below are not available for most newly-created payment accounts. Please refer to Account signing for details on how to enable larger trade sizes for your payment accounts.

  • Altcoin payment methods

    Bisq also supports a variety of cryptocurrencies for buying and selling bitcoin, like XMR, ETH, ZEC, L-BTC or LTC.

    Because altcoin transfers are irreversible and relatively quick, altcoin trades can be up to 2 BTC in size right away (no need to wait for account aging or account signing).

    Payment Method Trading Period Per-Trade Limit
    Altcoins 1 day 2.00 BTC
    Altcoins Instant 1 hour 2.00 BTC

    Altcoins Instant trades go by fast! Please remember to disable Instant offers in Portfolio > My Open Offers if you might not be around to settle an Instant trade.
