Notice to Buyers:

  1. Please complete your payment within the time stipulated by the seller, and click "Confirm". If the order is canceled due to a timeout as the buyer completes the payment but fails to click the "I've Paid" button, you can contact our customer service to assist the seller in releasing the token. The buyer will get one cancellation record in the system.
  2. If the buyer completes the payment and cancels the order by mistake, you can consult our customer service to assist you in contacting the seller for a refund. If the seller refuses to refund, the buyer shall be mainly responsible for the loss of funds.
  3. Should there be three canceled orders by the buyer actively or due to timeout on a single day, the system will restrict the buyer’s authority in placing orders and issuing trusted orders on that day.
  4. Don't click "I've Paid" without a successful payment, or it will be deemed as malicious payment. In case of any complaint about such orders, the seller may refuse to conclude the transaction, and the Platform is entitled to cancel the fiat transaction authority of the buyer who committed the malicious payment.
  5. If the buyer clicks "I've Paid" first and then makes the payment, the seller has the discretion to continue or cancel the transaction.
  6. Please complete the payment with your real name payment account (e.g., bank account, Alipay account, or WeChat payment account). If you make a payment using a falsified name or with a different account name, the seller is entitled to 1) ask for a video of the buyer and the owner of such account holding their ID cards or passports for KYC to prove the legitimacy of the funds; 2) cancel the order after refunding the paid amount to the payment account; 3) contact the KuCoin customer support to freeze the order immediately without releasing the digital assets, and seek assistance and coordination.
  7. The buyer shall bind a valid payment tool registered with the real name used on the Platform for payment. Suppose the buyer fails to make a payment as indicated on the seller's order (including making payment via an account bound with the order or other account opened with the actual name used on the Platform). In that case, the seller may refuse to conclude the transaction, with the risk of payment errors arising therefrom borne by the buyer.
  8. For timely transactions, please choose real-time transfer options such as Alipay balance to Alipay balance, WeChat wallet to WeChat wallet, and real-time bank remittance. (Notes: On holidays or from 17:00 to 09:00 on working days, if the amount exceeds CNY 50,000, please make the payment in batches. Do not use Alipay or WeChat to transfer the amount to the bank card during this period.) When the seller does not receive the payment after 10 minutes after the buyer clicks "I've Paid", the seller can click "Contact Customer Services" to seek assistance, and our customer services personnel will intervene for a solution.
  9. Digital assets corresponding to the pending orders will be locked. If no digital assets are received from the seller after the buyer completes the real-name transfer and clicks "I've Paid", the buyer can click "Contact Customer Services" for complaint, and our customer services personnel will intervene for the solution after confirmation.
  10. The buyer shall not leave any information in the remittance note; otherwise, the seller is entitled to cancel the transaction after the refund.
  11. If the actual amount paid by the buyer is greater than the order amount and click "I’ve paid" at the same time, KuCoin customer support will contact the seller to refund the excess amount; if the seller refuses to refund the excess amount, the buyer shall be mainly responsible for the loss of funds.
  12. If the buyer transfers the money to the seller’s other bank account or another person’s bank account and does not use the seller’s registered bank information for payment, the two parties need to communicate on their own, and the buyer bears the risk of the wrong transfer.
