Mercuryo accepts ONLY Visa and MasterCard: virtual, debit and credit cards. Mercuryo holds and immediately unholds 1 EUR to check if your bank card is valid.

6. Complete 3D secure authorization and input security code by your bank and Mercuryo.

Mercuryo sends 5 digit M-XXXXX code to your bank, then your bank should deliver the code to you. It's usually done via:

  • SMS message,
  • push notification,
  • invoice or bank statement from your bank's web/mobile app.

Please note that it is not a separate message and should be in the description of your transaction in bank.

As soon as you pass security code confirmation, fiat amount is put on authorization hold or pre-authorization state. This is done to ensure that the card owner has sufficient funds, while we verify your transaction. Once the bank reserves the requested amount, Mercuryo reserves the crypto and provides you 30–40 minutes in order to pass KYC.

7. Pass KYC

You need to select your country and depending on the country of citizenship you need to send a picture and a selfie with one of the following types of government-issued identification documents:

  • passport,
  • national ID card (both sides),
  • driving license.

As soon as you complete KYC, Mercuryo sends crypto to the blockchain address you have indicated early.

8. Transaction completed
