Using Your Own Wallet Address

What's yours is yours!

When buying crypto with Coinmama, you'll have to send them to your own personal wallet that only you have access to, and from there you can transfer your coins to wherever you'd like ( shops, E-shops, particulars...).

Why not just send your coins directly to whomever you'd like to transfer to?

This small yet crucial step of sending to your personal wallet first ensures that if there are any issues with your order, we'll be able to help. If you send your coins directly to a 3rd party's wallet, neither we nor you will have access to your coins and your funds will be at the sole discretion of the wallet owner that you requested your purchase be delivered to.

It may help to use an analogy here - if you order a physical product from Amazon, let's say a custom made t-shirt, and you request that your t-shirt be delivered to an address that's not your own, Amazon would fulfil their part of the deal as per your request and will not be able to intervene between you and the other individual who received your shirt.

If you do not have Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) set-up, we will email you a wallet confirmation link for each order. We will then only send you the coins once you've manually confirmed that the address that you entered when placing your order is indeed correct and belongs to you.

We'd highly recommend Zengo as a wallet provider if you do not have a wallet yet. Click here for a simple guide on how to use it.
