Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) for P2P Fiat Trading


1. What is P2P Fiat Trading?

P2P Fiat trading refers to the purchase or sale of digital assets with Fiat currency (e,g, US Dollar, Japanese Yen, etc.) between merchants users. It allows for quick conversions between digital assets and fiat.


2. What is USDT?

USDT, or Tether, is a blockchain-based cryptocurrency pegged to the U.S. dollar (USD). In other words, one USDT will always be equal to one U.S. dollar. Guests can exchange their USDT for USD at a 1:1 rate at any point in time. Tether strictly abides by the 1:1 reserve guarantee; every USDT issued is backed by a corresponding U.S. dollar.


3. How to set up the payment method?

If you’re using the web interface:

Please click "Buy Crypto" "Settings" "Add Collection Method".

If you’re using the application interface:

Please click "Trade" "Fiat" "..." "Collection Settings" "Add collection methods".

Please be aware that you need to complete the Know Your Customer (KYC) verification before conducting OTC Trading.


4. When verifying my bank card, why do I see the message "User should be the Card’s Owner?"

The account name of your bound bank card or E-wallet must be the same as your name to verify your identity. Additionally, you must use your own bank card or E-wallet.


5. I filled in my payment collection method incorrectly and I would like to change my payment method. What should I do?

You may edit, or delete and add a new payment method in the “Payment Mode Management” Page.


6. Which bank cards can be bound to the platform?

MEXC currently supports most banks on the platform.


7. Can I pay with someone else’s bank account?

In order to avoid transaction issues, kindly make payment with a verified bank account which belongs to you.


8. Why do I receive a “Balance Insufficient” message when selling tokens?

If you would like to sell USDT through the “P2P Trading” function, you first need to transfer your USDT from your Trading account to your Fiat account first.


9. I didnt make the payment, but I accidentally clicked "I have paid", what should I do?

Please contact the merchant through the chat box (on the right) to cancel your order. Do note that MEXC will not be liable for losses arising from guest negligence. Please check before confirming your orders.


10. How many times can I cancel my P2P order in a day?

As a general rule, guests may cancel up to three orders a day before a temporary restriction is placed on their ability to P2P trade for the next 24 hours.


11. I have confirmed that payment has been made, but the merchant says they have not received their funds. Why is this the case?

The Merchant’s bank may not have processed the transaction yet. Do communicate with the merchant and allow for some additional time for the delay to be resolved. Your tokens will be released to you immediately once payment has been received.


12. The merchant has confirmed that my tokens have been released. Which account were they released to?

Do note that your tokens are deposited directly into your Fiat account. However, if you do not receive your tokens, you may reach out to the merchant with the MEXC messaging system or call them directly. Alternatively, you may raise an appeal to the MEXC customer service department.


13. Do I need to confirm that the tokens have been released when I am the selling party?

Yes. Do click on the “confirm release” button once you have received payment.


14. "There are no ads that meet the requirements yet.” What does this prompt mean?

Some Merchants will place minimum requirements such as “Minimum Trades done” or “Primary KYC Completed” on their listings. If you are unable to meet their minimum requirements, you may not be able to complete a transaction with them.


15. Is there a time limit for making payments to merchants?

Transfers to your merchant should be completed within 15 minutes. If you do not make the transfer within the stipulated time, the system will automatically cancel your order.


16. I have already made payment. Why did my order still time out?

You have to click "Confirm Payment" after you have made the transfer. If you do not click on the “Confirm Payment” button, your order may timeout and the system will cancel it automatically. If this happens, contact the merchant directly for a refund.


17. I transferred money to the merchant but they have not released the transaction. The merchant said that the transfer was not performed in accordance with the regulations of their bank. Their account has been frozen as a result. What can I do?

Please reach out to the merchant and try to negotiate a compromise. We recommend that you give the merchant some time to resolve the situation. If the merchant is still unable to release the tokens to you after the agreed window of time has closed, you may contact our online customer service department directly and we will reach out to the merchant on your behalf.

We strongly advise against putting sensitive words like “crypto”, “Bitcoin”, “MEXC” or specific cryptocurrency names in the “Transfer Reference” field.


18. "Because your account has undergone OTC transactions, it will take 24 hours to withdraw cash. If you have any questions, please contact the platform customer service" What does this prompt mean?

The MEXC trading platform has stringent Anti-Money Laundering (AML) mechanisms in place. If users have bought USDT through the P2P Trading function, they will need to wait 24 hours from the time of their trade before they can make a withdrawal.

Margin Trading on MEXC


What is Margin Trading

Margin Trading allows users to trade assets on borrowed funds in the crypto market. It amplifies trading results so that traders are able to reap larger profits on successful trades. Similarly, you are also at risk of losing your entire margin balance and all the open positions.

Only 5 steps to start trading Margin on MEXC:

  1. Activate your Margin account
  2. Transfer assets to your Margin wallet
  3. Borrowing assets
  4. Margin trading (Buy/Long or Sell Short)
  5. Repayment


How to use with Margin Trading

Step 1: Open a Margin Trading account

After logging in to your MEXC account, find [Trade] on the menu bar and click [Margin]
How to Deposit and Trade Crypto at MEXC
Once directed to the Margin market interface, click [Open a margin account] and read the Margin Transaction Agreeement. Click [Confirm activation] to proceed.
How to Deposit and Trade Crypto at MEXC
How to Deposit and Trade Crypto at MEXC
Step 2: Asset transfer

In this case, we will be using BTC/USDT margin trading pair as an example. The two tokens of the trading pair (BTC, USDT) can be transferred to the Margin Wallet as the collateral funds. Click [Transfer], choose the tokens and fill in the quantity you want to transfer to your Margin Wallet then click [Transfer now]. Your borrowing limit is based on the funds in your Margin wallet.
How to Deposit and Trade Crypto at MEXC
How to Deposit and Trade Crypto at MEXC
Step 3: Loan

After transferring the tokens to your Margin Wallet, you are now able to use the tokens as collateral to borrow funds.

Click [Loan] under the [Normal] mode. The system will display the amount available for borrow based on the collateral. Users can apply the loan amount according to their needs.
How to Deposit and Trade Crypto at MEXC
The minimum loan amount and hourly interest rate will also be shown in the system for easy reference. Fill in the quantity you want to loan and click "Loan".
How to Deposit and Trade Crypto at MEXC
Step 4: Margin trading (Buy/Long or Sell Short)

Users can start Margin Trading once loan is successful. Heres what Buy/Long and Sell/Short means:

Buy/Long

Buying long on Margin Trading means expecting a bullish market in the near future to buy low and sell high whilst repaying the loan. If the price of BTC is expected to increase, you can choose to borrow USDT to buy BTC at a low price and sell it at a high price in the future.

Users can choose between Limit, Market or Stop-Limit in [Normal] or [Auto] mode to buy/long BTC.
How to Deposit and Trade Crypto at MEXC
When the price of BTC goes up to the expected price, user can sell/short BTC by using Limit, Market or Stop-Limit.
How to Deposit and Trade Crypto at MEXC
Sell/Short

Selling short on Margin Trading means expecting a bearish market in the near future to sell high and buy low whilst repaying the loan. If the current BTC price is 40,000 USDT and it is expected to drop, you can choose to go short by borrowing BTC.

Users can choose between Limit, Market or Stop-Limit in [Normal] or [Auto] mode to sell/short BTC.
How to Deposit and Trade Crypto at MEXC
When the price of BTC goes down to the expected price, users can buy BTC with a lower price in Margin Trading to repay the loan and interest.
How to Deposit and Trade Crypto at MEXC
Step 5: Apply for repayment

Users can proceed with repayment by clicking [Assets - Account] - [Margin account]. Look for the tokens you have applied loan for (BTC, in this case), and click [Repayment]. Select the order that you would like to repay, key in the amount for repayment and click [Repayment] to proceed. If there is an insufficient amount for repayment, users have to transfer the required tokens into their Margin account to make the repayment in time.

How to Deposit and Trade Crypto at MEXC

Guide to Automatic Mode Feature in Margin Trading

MEXC also provides Margin Trading in Auto mode to simplify trading processes and enhance users experience.

1. Loan and Repayment

By choosing Automatic mode in Margin Trading, users do not need to loan or repay manually. The system will judge whether the user needs a loan based on the available asset and order amount. If the order amount is greater than the users available asset, the system will perform a loan automatically, and the interest will be counted immediately. When the order is cancelled or partially filled, the system will repay the loan automatically to avoid the interest generated by the idle loan.

2. Available Amount/Quota

In Automatic mode, the system will display the available amount to users based on the leverage selected and the users asset in the Margin account (Available amount = Net asset + Maximum loan amount).
How to Deposit and Trade Crypto at MEXC
3. Unpaid Loan

If the user has an unpaid loan, the system will first repay the interest and then the loan amount when the user transfers the corresponding asset into margin account. Users will have to repay the outstanding loan to be able to switch trading modes.


Stop-Limit Order on Margin Trading


What is Stop-Limit order on Margin Trading?

Stop-Limit order allows traders to combine a limit order and a stop-loss order to mitigate risks by specifying the minimum amount of profit or the maximum loss they are willing to accept. Users can start by setting a stop price and a limit price. When the trigger price is reached, the system will automatically place the order even when you are logged out.

Parameters

Trigger price: When the token reaches the trigger price, the order will be placed automatically at the Limit price with the pre-set amount.

Price: The price for buy/sell

Quantity: The buy/sell amount in the order

Note: If theres a large market fluctuation when users are trading in Auto mode, the available loan will be changed. This may lead to the failure of the stop-limit order.


For example:

The market price of EOS is now higher than 2.5 USDT. User A believes that the 2.5 USDT price mark is an important support line. So User A thinks if the price of EOS falls below the price, he can apply for a loan to buy EOS. In this case, User A can leverage the stop-limit order and set the trigger prices and amount in advance. With this function, User A will have no need to actively monitor the market.

Note: If the token has experienced great volatility, the stop-limit order may fail to be executed.


How to place a Stop-Limit order?

1. Taking the above scenario as an example: On MEXCs website, find [Trade - Margin] on the menu bar - Click [Stop-Limit] in the preferred mode (Auto or Normal)

2. Set the Trigger Price at 2.7 USDT, Limit Price as 2.5 USDT and the buying amount of 35. Then, click "Buy". After placing the Stop-Limit order, the order status can be viewed under the [Stop-Limit order] interface below.

3. Upon the latest price reaching the stop price, the order can be viewed under the "Limit" menu.

Futures Trading on MEXC


Coin Margined Perpetual Contact Trading Tutorial【PC】


Step 1:

Login at https://www.mexc.io click “Derivatives” followed by "Futures" to enter the transaction page.
How to Deposit and Trade Crypto at MEXC
Step 2:

The futures page contains a wealth of data about the market. This is the price chart of your selected trading pair. You may toggle between the basic, pro and depth views by clicking the options in the top right of the screen.

Information about your positions and orders can be seen at the bottom of the screen.

The order book gives you insight into whether other brokerages are buying and selling while the market trades section gives you information about the recently completed trades.

Finally, you can place an order on the extreme right of the screen.
How to Deposit and Trade Crypto at MEXC
Step 3:

The coin-margined perpetual contract is a perpetual contract denominated in a certain kind of digital asset. MEXC currently offers BTC/USDT and ETH/USDT trading pairs. More will come in future. Here, we will purchase BTC/USDT in an example transaction.
How to Deposit and Trade Crypto at MEXC
Step 4:

If you do not have sufficient funds, you may transfer your assets from your Spot account to your Contract account by clicking “Transfer” in the bottom right of the screen. If you do not have any funds in your Spot account, you may perform purchase tokens directly with fiat currency.
How to Deposit and Trade Crypto at MEXC
Step 5:

Once your contract account has the required funds, you may place your limit order by setting price and the number of contracts you would like to purchase. You may then click “Buy/Long” or “Sell/Short” to complete your order.
How to Deposit and Trade Crypto at MEXC
Step 6:


You may apply different amounts of leverage on different trading pairs. MEXC supports up to 125x leverage. Your maximum allowable leverage is dependent on the initial margin and maintenance margin, which determines the funds required to first open and then maintain a position.

You may change both your long and short position leverage in cross margin mode. Here’s how you can do it.

For instance the long position is 20x, and the short position is 100x. To decrease the risk of long and short hedging, the trader plans to adjust the leverage from 100x to 20x.

Please click “Short 100X” and adjust the leverage to the planned 20x, and then click “OK”. Then the leverage of the position has now been reduced to 20x.
How to Deposit and Trade Crypto at MEXC
Step 7:

MEXC supports two different margin modes to accommodate differing trading strategies. They are Cross Margin mode and Isolated Margin mode.

Cross Margin Mode

In cross margin mode, margin is shared between open positions with the same settlement cryptocurrency. A position will draw more margin from the total account balance of the corresponding cryptocurrency to avoid liquidation. Any realised PnL can be used to increase the margin on a losing position within the same cryptocurrency type.

Isolated Margin

In isolated margin mode, margin assigned to a position is limited to the initial sum posted.

In the event of liquidation, the trader only loses margin for that specific position, leaving the balance of that specific cryptocurrency unaffected. Therefore, isolated margin mode allows traders to limit their losses to the initial margin and nothing more.

When in isolated margin mode, you can spontaneously optimise your leverage by means of the leverage slider.

By default, all traders start in isolated margin mode.

MEXC currently allows traders to change from isolated margin to cross margin mode in the middle of a trade, but in the opposite direction.

Step 8:

You may buy/go long on a position or sell/go short a position.

A trader goes long when they anticipate a price increase in a contract, purchasing at a lower price and selling it for a profit in the future.

A trader goes short when they anticipate a price decrease, selling at a higher price in the present and earning the difference when they re-purchase it in the future.

MEXC supports a variety of different order types to accommodate different trading strategies. We will next proceed to explain the different order types available.

Order Types
How to Deposit and Trade Crypto at MEXC
i) Limit order

Users can set a price that they are willing to buy or sell at, and that order is then filled at that price or better. Traders use this order type when price is prioritised over speed. If the trade order is matched immediately against an order already on the order book, it removes liquidity and the taker fee applies. If the trader’s order is not matched immediately against an order already on the order book, it adds liquidity and the maker fee applies.

ii) Market order

A market order is an order to be executed immediately at current market prices. Traders use this order type when speed is prioritised over speed. The market order can guarantee the execution of orders but the execution price may fluctuate based on market conditions.

iii) Stop Limit Order

A Limit Order will be placed when the market reaches the Trigger Price. This can be used to stop loss or take profit.

iv) Immediate or Cancel Order (IOC)

If the order cannot be executed in full at the specified price, the remaining portion of the order will be cancelled.

v) Market to Limit Order (MTL)

A Market-to-Limit (MTL) order is submitted as a market order to execute at the best market price. If the order is only partially filled, the remainder of the order is canceled and re-submitted as a limit order with the limit price equal to the price at which the filled portion of the order executed.

vi) Stop Loss/Take Profits

You may set your take-profits/stop-limit prices when opening a position.
