What is the Marketplace and how to use it?

The Cryptopia Marketplace is a place for Cryptopia users to buy and sell items using cryptocurrency. All items are traded in the cryptocurrency of the seller’s choice.

PLEASE NOTE: Whilst Cryptopia hosts the Marketplace, Cryptopia takes NO RESPONSIBILITY for any items listed, the accuracy of descriptions, or any transactions that take place between users on our Marketplace. It takes no active involvement or participates in the Marketplace.

We believe our users should have as much freedom as possible to buy and sell any item they choose. However, please be aware that the agreement of the value of items may be very subjective, and the legality of items and content may also vary between different countries and states.

Please familiarise yourself with the 'Marketplace Liability' clause that forms part of our Terms and Conditions before participating in the Marketplace.

How do I buy an item?

  • New listings are shown on the main 'Marketplace' page. 
  • Listings can be viewed by 'Category'. Click on the relevant 'Category' to see listings. 
  • Search for a listing by typing text in the 'Search' box and clicking on the search icon.
  • Listings can be 'BuySell!' – an item is a fixed price, or 'Auction' – item will be sold within specified duration of days to the highest bidder if it met the 'Reserve Price' specified.
  • You can filter the listing by 'Type of Listings', 'Currency', 'Location' and also sort by 'Newest', 'Highest', 'Lowest' and 'Closing Soon'
  • When you click on a listing to view, you will see details including 'Title', 'Description', 'Country of Sale' or 'Purchase', 'Images', 'Sale Currency' and 'Price', and 'Shipping Options'.
  • Once you have found an item you are interested in, please review the details of the listing.  You are also able to ask the 'Seller' questions on each listing. Questions and answers are both displayed to all users viewing the listing.
  • Each listing will display the Seller’s Cryptopia username, as well as a 'Trust Rating' which is based on user feedback from the 'Marketplace'.
  • Once you are ready to buy an item, use the 'Buy Now' button at the bottom of the page to initiate the purchase. 
  • For 'Auction' listings, select the bid you want to place. No funds will be debited from your Cryptopia account from this, but you will be provided contact information for the seller. From there it’s between you and them to organise payment and shipping.
PLEASE NOTE: Cryptopia itself has NO INVOLVEMENT AND TAKES NO RESPONSIBILITY for any items listed, the accuracy of descriptions, or any transactions that take place between users on our Marketplace.
