Purchase flow

Buying crypto with Ramp is only a few easy steps.

  1. User confirms token and the amount they want to buy and registers with their e-mail (you can pre-populate this information for the user).
  2. User defines wallet address (you can pre-populate this information for the user)
  3. User chooses their preferred payment method:
    1. Instant Payment (automatic payment)
    2. SEPA transfer
  4. User completes the payment in their online or mobile banking.
  5. Tokens are issued to the address stated in step 2

The process usually takes 2 to 5 minutes, depending on the chosen bank and the type of payment method selected.

Purchase Receipt

During the process, users are presented with a unique url to the status page of their purchase. This page contains all information about the purchase, payment history and gives the user the link to Etherscan to track the transaction.

When the purchase is still in progress, this page also displays payment details and a button for automatic payment initiation.

Fees

Ramp charges 2.5% fee per transaction. Contact sales for custom fee structure at partner@ramp.network.

Payments

There are two methods of transferring fiat available to users in Ramp Instant, automated and manual.

Automated (PISP)

This the preferred method. In this process the user is redirected to his bank's online/mobile banking after choosing "Instant Payment". The user is asked to confirm the purchase: the details of the transfer are all pre-filled. This option comes at no additional banking cost and allows for much faster settlement (2-5 minutes). This option is only available for selected banks in the EU (list).

Manual

The second method is manual payment. The user is presented with all the details needed to finalise a transaction in Ramp Instant widget. This transfer needs to be done manually in user's online or mobile banking. Ramp widget allows to copy the Recipient's name, bank account number, sort code, reference and amount to make the experience easier and faster, but mistakes happen, so we always recommend using Automated Payment wherever possible.

Limits

Ramp Instant currently limits the amounts of assets users can buy to:

  • 0.60 - 10000.00 EUR per purchase
  • 10000.00 EUR per 30 days per user
  • 30 transactions per 30 days per user

Exceeding the limits requires additional ID verification done by the team. Contact our sales team if you're interested in higher limits.

Where to get help

Dictionary

Purchase - the process of buying tokens using the Ramp Instant widget. The purchase starts by creating an escrow with tokens locked. Later comes a bank transaction between the buyer and the seller. Finally, when we detect proper payment, the escrow is released. Tokens are sent to buyer and the trade is done.
