8. Customer Support and User Review

Customer Support

Remitano has 24 hours customer support via live chat.

I tried it and I got the response I needed in a few minutes. Cool!

Also, users can send their queries via email to

Additionally, Remitano has a Forum where users can read crypto news and participate in group discussions.

Plus, users can stay updated via the following channels:


Public Opinion

I check Remitano on Trust Pilot and it had an excellent rating with close to 7,000 reviews. Impressive!

The majority of the reviews were positive. I didn’t even find a negative review on the first page.

This shows that the Remitano customer support is doing a great job because most P2P exchanges get a poor rating.

As I said earlier, you don’t buy and sell bitcoin from or to Remitano. Rather, you trade with other traders under a safe system called an escrow.

The escrow is designed to ensure your safety when trading but then, some persons still lose their funds.

This is not because the escrow failed, but because of their mistake.

I will now walk you through how to trade safely on Remitano.

Paxful is another P2P exchange that was founded in 2015; that makes it a year older than Remitano.

Its most outstanding feature is that it supports over 300 payment methods i.e any payment method you can think of.

However, it supports only three cryptocurrencies while Remitano supports a lot more.

    Please be careful of using remitano for deposit and withdrawal…..NOT SAFE

    • Chiamaka Atueyi

      Hello Don, when you said “NOT SAFE”, what exactly do you mean? Kindly share details.

  2. Max

    No, I have experience with Remitano, tried 9 times but no success; remitano is not recommended.

    • Chiamaka Atueyi

      Hello Max, can you kindly share more details on this?

  3. Marius

    Awesome review. I have a LUNO account, registered in South Africa, have now registered REMITANO and got the account verified.
    Question: What is the best payment option, for a buy or sell transaction on REMITANO, from South Africa.

    • Jude Umeano

      It really depends on your bank. The best option is to buy or sell to someone using the same bank as you.

  4. Joe

    @Jude Umeano, you have done a good job. Very simplistic and easy to understand. But you should know that the response time of Customer”s Support on Remitano has greatly improved. Within about 5 minutes, you will get your first reply.

    • Jude Umeano

      Yes, that’s true. I will do an update

  5. Joe

    Yes. That is why it is a P2P exchange. It provides a safe platform for buyers and a sellers to exchanging fiat money (local currenc) for digital money (cryptocurrencies)

  6. Omomehin Marvel

    Please admin,can we chat on email?.i’ve got some confidential stuffs to ask

  7. Nnamdi.

    Pls what’s the riquirement to open an account with remitano and pls how long does it take for one to sale a crypto on their platform. Thanks

    • Jude Umeano

      the requirements are that you need to register and confirm your email address. Once you do that, you can trade. However, some traders will not trade with you if have not verified your ID or address. so I suggest you do that to trade more safely.

      it takes about 10 mins, sometimes more or less depending on how fast the trader is or how fast your bank sends alert.

  8. Prince

    Hello, I’d like to know if I need to verify my identity in order to sell. Is it necessary to get verified before I can sell my cryptos?
    Also do u know if they accept the Nigerian national ID slip because that’s what I have, I don’t have the e-card yet

    • Jude Umeano

      You need to verify, most traders would only sell or buy from a verified account. I dont know if they will accept National ID slip. you can try it to see.
      I am sure that quidax will accept your national ID card. also you do not need verification to sell your cryptos on Nairaex, however you need verification to buy.

  9. aparna

    can I withdraw directly ethereum to other site after buying ethereum in remitano

    • Felix Udechukwu

      Yes you can. But note that you will be charged the normal transfer fee(from remitano to other site)

  10. Uzor Thompson

    Please what’s your email so I can write you directly thank you sir for wanting to assist and guide me.

  11. Olubayode

    Withdrawal from Remitano take ages! Not a liquid platform. Avoid them like a plague.

    • Felix Udechukwu

      You don’t withdraw from remitano. Transactions are instantly done in remitano. You sell bitcoin and receive cash instantly before you confirm transaction. Please explain more so I can put you through

      • Thompson

        Yes you have a withdrawal option on Remitano but only when you have btc on your Remitano account and wish to refund/withdraw it back to your wallet. Meanwhile I am currently having an issue where I tried withdrawing back to my wallet but another wallet ID went ahead of withdrew all my money to the last btc… I been emailing and sending messages trying to chat with their customer service but no response from them and trust me right now am being as confused as hell to where this mishap is coming from.

        • Felix Udechukwu

          Chat them up and remain online. They will respond

        • Jude Umeano

          Hello Thompson.
          I still don’t get you.
          Wallet ID is not used in remitano but in Unless you mean wallet address. If you have btc in your remitano account, the only place it can be is in your wallet. So I don’t understand how you will have btc in your wallet and want to withdraw it to your wallet.

          If you have btc in your remitano wallet and want to send it to another external wallet. You have to make sure you enter the correct wallet address. If the address is wrong or the address is not a Bitcoin address, you are most likely to lose your bitcoin.

          However, I suggest you email, support to explain all this to them. Make sure you use the correct terms so that they can easily understand what you are saying. State the wallet address you sent the bitcoin to, the date and the amount. Thank you

  12. Adewale

    is REMITANO not offering means of withdrawing one’s cash through local bank?

    • Felix Udechukwu

      Remitano does not work like luno. You get your cash instantly in your local account. Remitano does not pay into your account but the merchant you sell your crypto to does that instantly

      • Samuel

        Please what is the difference between instant trade and frequent buyer on Remitano?

        • Jude Umeano

          Frequent buyers are those that buys frequently. Instant trade reduces any form of delay between buyers and sellers
