Popular domestic payment methods
Domestic payment methods are the most popular choice for LocalCryptos users. Most traders prefer to trade via a standard bank transfer within their country. Alipay and WeChat Pay are also incredibly popular throughout China.
Some traders prefer to meet face-to-face to exchange cash in person. If you're trading with cash, we recommend meeting in a public place such as a cafe. If safety is a greater concern in your area, try an international airport or bank branch — somewhere with cameras and security to keep you safe.

International payment methods
These payment methods can be used to send and receive money across borders. Buyers and sellers on LocalCryptos can use them to trade ETH with people in other countries, or people in the same countries. Some payment services, such as TransferWise and SEPA Credit Transfers, are available only in certain countries; for example, SEPA is avaialble within the European Union and Mercado Pago is avaialble throughout Latin America.
Users should take extra caution when using PayPal or Venmo because of the higher risk of chargeback fraud. It's important to look for a trading partner with strong reputation when if you choose to trade with one of these methods.
