Placing a trade with Bitcoin Vanuatu on Local Bitcoin

Having verified your Local Bitcoin account (this will include receiving a confirmation email, confirmation txt and having your ID verified to match your name) you can then buy Bitcoin from Bitcoin_Cam (Bitcoin Vanuatu’s trading handle).

Read through the terms and conditions of the trade thoroughly before opening the trade.

To open a “Buy bitcoin in Vanuatu” trade click here between the hours of 9am-1pm Weekdays (not including public holidays).

Enter in the amount of bitcoin you wish to purchase (or the vatu equivalent), add any message you want to send and click on the “Send Trade Request” button.

Feel free to ask any questions that you have in the message area and our friendly team will get back to you right away.

For security reasons and to follow best practice Know Your Customer (KYC) procedures, we then ask you to forward on the trade message service the following:

  • A clear picture of your Vanuatu photo ID. This can include a Vanuatu driver’s license or your Vanuatu passport. For non-citizens your non-Vanuatu passport coupled with your Vanuatu residency is fine. Please note that your ID MUST match the name you have verified with Local Bitcoins.
  • A clear selfie of you holding your photo ID next to your face with you holding a hand written note saying ““I agree with T & C of Bitcoin_Cam”, then sign it with today’s date and time. Please make sure that your face, the text on your ID and the hand writing in the picture are clear and legible.

Once we have received this and have confirmed your ID is legitimate, including that it matches your Local Bitcoin details, we will then approve the trade and advise you of our bank details.

2. Paying for your Bitcoin

All Trades opened with Vanuatu bitcoin’s trading handle Bitcoin_Cam are for payment with vatu cash only. Payments made with any other form of payment outside of vatu cash will be deemed as fraudulent and the trade will be canceled immediately.

Once your trade is opened, our banking details will be displayed. If you are using a computer, these will be displayed on the righthand side of the trade message area. If you are using a mobile phone, they will be displayed underneath the trade message area.

You are then required to go to the bank and make a cash deposit for the vatu amount you have listed in your trade. Bank deposits must be made prior to 1pm. Please note that deposits after 1pm might not be able to be verified with our bank until the following day and may cause a delay in release of your bitcoins.

It is vital for you and Bitcoin_Cam that we are able to match your bank deposit with your trade.

To match your deposit with your trade, ask the teller to include a Reference. The Reference will be the first 4 digits of the Local Bitcoin Trade contact number. The contact number for your trade is on the top left-hand side of the trade screen. For example, if the trade contact number is “#2012899”. Using this as an example, you would simply request “2012” as the reference.

IMPORTANT – FOR THE SUCCESSFUL COMPLETION OF YOUR TRADE PLEASE FOLLOW THE BELOW TERMS.

IT IS AN ESSENTIAL REQUIREMENT THAT YOU KEEP THE DEPOSIT RECEIPT AS YOU WILL NEED THIS TO COMPLETE THE TRADE

ALL BUY BITCOIN IN VANUATU TRADES ARE MADE THROUGH THE TRADE HANDLE BITCOIN_CAM ARE ON A VATU CASH ONLY BASIS.

ANY TRADE ATTEMPTED TO BE COMPLETED USING ANY FORM OF PAYMENT OUT OF VATU CASH MONEY WILL BE CANCELLED AND THE FUNDS NOT RETURNED.

3. Get Your Bitcoins

Once you have completed the deposit with the bank teller, please write on the deposit receipt “For payment to BTC-CAM – no refunds”. Only do this AFTER you have already made the deposit.

Then take a clear photo of the deposit receipt with the hand writing on it and send it to us on the trade message service.

Once you have sent the photo on the trade message service please click the “I Have Paid” button. After you have pressed on the “I Have Paid” button, Bitcoin Vanuatu staff will be alerted immediately.
