  1. Sign up and Verify Your Account

To set up your Verified Coindirect account, you can follow the straight-forward steps here. You’ll need a clear copy of your proof of address (no older than 6 months), a government issued identity document (Like your Passport), and selfie of your face next to that same identity document. Verifying your account allows Coindirect to follow international best practices with Know Your Customer (KYC) and Anti-money laundering (AML) regulations. Once your account is approved by the Coindirect team (it takes up to 24 hours), you will have the ability to create your first offer as a Vendor.

  1. Invest Capital

Whether you’re buying or selling coins, you’ll need to invest some initial capital to get started with cryptocurrency trading. As with regular forms of trading, an upfront investment creates the foundation for your abilities to purchase, and sell, significant volumes of Rupees. Larger volumes mean that even if the profit margins are small, you can still see substantial profits. There are currently no minimum limits for Trade Vendors on Coindirect.

  1. Understanding The Markets

As a Vendor your profitability will rely on your ability to understand the shifting cryptocurrency market values. Having a solid grip of how cryptocurrencies function and a strong financial background will definitely play to your advantage as a Coindirect Vendor. Your potential income will come from the success of the trades you offer on the platform and accepting the financial risk involved should not be taken lightly.

  1. Choose Your Payment Methods

Coindirect offers the ability to conveniently transact locally with Indian bank transfers between buyers and sellers. There’s also the option to set up alternative payment methods such as PayPal or TransferWise, which makes it easier for you to reach out to more potential buyers or sellers in 20 other countries. For your convenience, you can set up as many payment methods as you need all under a single account.

Coindirect lets you create Offers in whichever country you have a relevant payment method setup in. Their automatic currency conversion system means potential buyers can view your Offer in their local currency, taking out the difficulty of managing multiple currencies and accounts. When a buyer completes a transaction with you, Coindirect will instantly convert your Bitcoin into the required currency.

  1. Creating your first offer

With a verified Coindirect account and your chosen payment methods set up, you’re now able to start trading by clicking the ‘Create an Offer’ button on your Dashboard. This will open a window that allows you to fully customise your Offer specifications. This is where you’ll choose which cryptocurrency you want to buy or sell, which country you are selling from, which wallet to use and the payment methods you support. Vendors can decide if they want to set a fixed price or use an equation to adjust the value to market trends. They can set their minimum and maximum trade amount limits and the time limit in which buyers are required to pay for an order.

With Coindirect, you are able setup multiple Offers, with a maximum of 2 Offers for each altcoin per territory. As soon as you post the Offer, it will appear on the Coindirect Buy or Sell page and stay live until the balance of the wallet that you have setup runs out. If you want to make any changes to a live offer, you’re able to pause or hide the offer while you edit it. Once you’re finished, simply switch the Offer back to live.

  1. Use The Partner Area To Keep Track

Clicking through to the ‘Partner Area’ on the right-hand side of your Coindirect profile menu takes you to an area similar to your normal Dashboard. This page include some additional features for you as a Coindirect Vendor. This is where you can post new Buy or Sell Offers, edit your live Offers, track the progress of orders placed with you and also view your past Offers.

  1. Conclude Your Orders

When one of your offers is live, it’s best practice to regularly check-in for incoming orders. Transactions that are approved and concluded quickly will lead to buyers giving you positive ratings, building your reputation as a trusted Coindirect Partner. By becoming one of the first Vendors in India will give you the advantage of building a strong Vendor reputation before anyone else. Approving orders is made easier with chat functionality that allows you to communicate directly with the person placing an order with you.

For your security, all transactions on Coindirect are escrow-protected which ensures both parties honour the order.
