6. Returns and Refund Policy
Cryptocurrencies, tokens, and digital assets are, by their nature, generally irreversible, and their exchange rates are highly volatile and transitory. We cannot be responsible for any risk in the use of the Website, including but not limited to exchange rate risk and market risk. All sales after an EasyBit exchange are final.
- Unsupported coins/tokens that are deposited into our system to unrelated wallets cannot be extracted or returned. EasyBit reserves the right to handle this on a case-by-case basis. Any decisions by EasyBit with respect to such coins or tokens being deposited when no longer supported are final.
- EasyBit only accepts one deposit per transaction ID. If your funds are deposited in a more than one deposit, you will need to contact support to receive a refund. The exchange rate will not be honored and your exchange cannot be completed.
- It is the customer`s responsibility to maintain the Transaction ID and Blockchain transfer Hash/TXID, as it is a requirement in submitting a ticket. EasyBit has no obligation to reply to tickets without Transaction ID and Blockchain transfer Hash/TXID.
- The minimum deposit amount depends on the selected currency. The minimum amount may fluctuate over time, you may find the current minimum deposit amount per currency on the exchange form. Transactions or possible refunds that do not meet the minimum deposit limitation will not be processed and will stay in EasyBit`s balance until the above requirement is met.
- The maximum deposit amount depends on the selected currency. The maximum amount may fluctuate over time, you may find the current maximum deposit amount per currency on the exchange form. Transactions that do not meet the maximum deposit limitation may be refunded as the whole deposit amount at once or in parts of one maximum deposit amount per day.
- Deposits that are credited in our addresses without being associated with an active order will be treated as unspecified deposits and will be kept in our systems. In addition, if for any order, the transaction can not be completed, the deposited amount remains in our systems. In such cases, and in all possible situations, after which your deposit remains in our systems EasyBit will try to contact you to inform you and issue a refund. If we do not have any contact information you will have to contact us yourself at [email protected] to request a refund. On the email, you may use as subject "Claim Deposit" and you will have to provide information such as the Blockchain transfer Hash/TXID, wallet addresses involved, sent currency, amount, or any other information that may be required in order to verify the ownership of the funds. Once you contact us and provide the above, a refund will be issued to the originating address.
- Refunds, in all instances, will be exclusively issued to the originating address – the address used to initially send the funds to our account. The identification of this originating address is executed by examining the Deposit Hash/Transaction ID via a blockchain explorer. Our team may, at their discretion, confirm the originating address with you, and, under special circumstances, may issue the refund to an address different from the originating one. This non-standard procedure, however, is subject to case-by-case review and must be approved by senior members for security purposes. Our system is fundamentally designed to issue refunds to the originating address, a robust protective measure aimed to deter fraudulent attempts by users impersonating others to claim deposits. By using our services, you attest your acceptance of this policy.
- Should a refund be correctly issued by our team to the originating address, as indicated by the relevant explorer, yet you find yourself unable to access or receive the funds, we advise you to reach out to your wallet provider. Provide them with the hash of the payment that we will supply, and they should assist in resolving the matter. Consequently, we strongly recommend you refrain from deleting or removing addresses used to make deposits to us, as refunds for unprocessed orders will be returned to the originating address. To ensure the safe receipt of refunds, ensure you are employing reliable wallet providers capable of crediting the refunded amount to your account, failing which could result in potential loss of funds.
- EasyBit, including its owner, directors, officers, members, employees, or agents, shall not bear responsibility or liability for any inability to retrieve or access your funds if a refund has been correctly issued to the originating address, as evidenced by the corresponding blockchain explorers. By using Our services, you warrant that you are in agreement with our policy of issuing refunds to the originating address.
7. Applicable Costs
EasyBit reserves the right to recover reasonable resolution costs, for out of pocket expenses or time spent addressing a customer issue in the event where the customer issue, relating to a transaction or any use of our services, did not occur as part of any deficiency or error that may arise as a result of system or human error i.e. is not caused by our systems or owners’, directors’, officers’, members’, or any kind of employees’, negligence.
In any such issue where extra resolution costs may be applicable, you will be acknowledged of the estimated costs for the resolution, through email correspondence. If such costs can not be payable through the transaction (by collecting an extra fee), you will have to proceed with a separate payment beforehand, and according to our instructions. If no separate payment is received as a payment for the estimated applicable resolution costs for your issue, EasyBit reserves the right to ignore it.
8. Exchange Rates, Fees, Commissions, and Confirmations
Please be aware that the initial exchange rate is only an estimation. EasyBit makes considerable efforts to provide the most accurate exchange estimation, but this information is subject to inevitable volatility and changes may occur, associated but not limited to, the highly volatile and risky nature of virtual assets. The real exchange rate you receive is calculated after your payment is confirmed and your funds are being exchanged. In accordance with the various blockchain networks and providers, your deposit takes some time to be confirmed. Please be acknowledged that the broadcast of a transfer to the blockchain network does not mirror EasyBit’s acceptance of that transfer and we are neither responsible for such confirmation procedures nor do we affect the time required. In that time required rates are subject to change.
EasyBit reserves the right to levy service fees/commissions on users who use its services. It is at the discretion of EasyBit to adjust the service fees/commissions charged to clients using its services. Exchange fees demonstrated on the exchange form, fee structure table, and account overview is just an estimation. EasyBit takes substantial efforts in the direction of calculating a precise estimation of all applicable costs and provides such estimation on the initial rates, but such estimation is vulnerable to fluctuation in relation to numerous factors. In order to provide our services to you, we inevitably are engaging with multiple ESP’s (Exchange Service Providers), blockchain networks, miners, etc, directly or indirectly, and on various market conditions (high or low volatility periods, high or low congestion networks, etc). All EasyBit’s, ESP’s, and blockchain’s (miner’s), exchange fees, extra commissions, network fees, etc, across all possible market conditions, which may be applicable in relation to the numerous ESP’s, coins, and blockchain networks involved in a transaction, are subject to change without prior notice and are effectively calculated in each instance separately at the time of the exchange and are extracted from the final amount.
All the above charges that may be applicable in each transaction for all the beneficiaries as outlined above are always included in the final rate (meaning it’s already extracted) and by no means you are obliged to pay any additional or hidden fees directly to EasyBit unless otherwise specified by these Terms.
