To set up your XAPO wallet…
begin by going to xapo.com and clicking on “Open a Xapo account”.
After entering your information, you will be directed to your Xapo Wallet. Go to the email address that you used to create your account. There will be an email asking you to verify your email address. On the email, click the red button that says “verify email address”, where you will be redirected to the Xapo homepage and can log in by clicking the “Login” button on the top right of the page.
You have now successfully created a Xapo Wallet. Keep in mind that your Wallet is supposed to hold the bitcoins you carry for everyday needs. To save bitcoin for long-term needs, I recommend setting up a Xapo Vault or using an offline Bitcoin Storage Device.
How do you use Xapo?
With Xapo, you can buy, transact, store, manage and spend your bitcoins.
The Xapo Wallet has no delays nor geographical limitations. The only fee is for receiving an external transaction less than this specific limit and the Xapo Wallet is also linked directly to the Xapo Debit Card – the world’s first bitcoin debit card! If the Xapo Debit Card is available in your country then you can spend your bitcoins at any online or offline establishment that accepts Visa.
Can you use the funds in your other wallets with your Xapo Debit Card?
The Xapo Debit Card is exclusively a bitcoin debit card. It is connected directly with your Xapo personal wallet, which is held in bitcoin.
To use the debit card at a store, online or to withdraw cash at an ATM, make sure that you have sufficient bitcoins in your Personal BTC Wallet. To do so, you can:
- Send bitcoins. If you hold your bitcoins outside of Xapo, you can find your public wallet address right inside your Xapo personal wallet to transfer more bitcoin.
- Add funds. Top up your account in your local currency by making money transfers or bank deposits – you will find options that are available for your country by clicking on “Add funds” after you login.
- Transfer funds to your Personal BTC Wallet. If you already hold funds in USD, EUR or other currencies inside your Xapo account, you can convert funds directly into bitcoin by transferring them to your Xapo personal wallet.
How can you order your Xapo Debit Card.
To order your Xapo Debit Card, go to your main wallet and click on “Get Yours” on the upper left-hand side. If you cannot see this icon in your main wallet, unfortunately, we cannot issue cards in your country.
Once you click on the button, you will be taken through a sequence of steps to complete your card order. Please note that you must have sufficient funds in bitcoin in your main wallet to complete your card order – remember to check the fee schedule.
How much does it cost to send or receive a transaction?
All incoming transactions from external bitcoin addresses to Xapo, including payouts from faucets (unless they directly pay out to Xapo), will be charged a network fee if the incoming transaction is too small. In order to send or receive such small transactions, this fee is necessary to cover the transaction cost of the bitcoin network.
Xapo will always update the fee as well as minimum amount to receive from an external account without being charged here.
