I was excited to learn that Bitstamp allowed purchases of Crypto with a credit card, but soon learned the hard way this is a huge rip off.
I was fine with paying the 5% fee that Bitstamp outlines in their fee structure. However, what they DON’T say is that this is not transacted as a purchase, like it claims on their site, but instead is charged as a cash advance. So therefor I have to incur MORE astronomical fees by my bank.
You already make me call my bank each time I’ve purchased crypto, so after going through extensive verifications, there is no worry that I will later try to reverse the charges or claim that it wasn’t me making them. So there is absolutely no reason for you to charge this as a cash advance.
Shame on you for doing this, and not being transparent about it!
Thanks for your support. I have a question. Can I perform swift transfer with a bank which I have not used before? In kyc process I wrote the bank which I always used. This time I want to send money with other bank which I cooperate with. Is it possible? ( I hope no any delay can occur about crediting time?)
When your bank doesn’t have a direct connection to Bitstamps’, SWIFT transfers go through a corresponding bank. Some are faster than others and some are more reliable than others.
Does anyone know which are best? Have you had fast / slow experiences, or funds being held, with any particular corresponding bank?
Physical bank branches are already losing their usefulness and appeal; entire financial sector will move to digital banking to compete for customers. #EXPERT BLOGRead More
