Step 7. Pay for your order
You will then have to enter your payment information. Please make sure to use the same payment method you have chosen when setting up your purchase and that it belongs to you.
Once you fill out your card details, you will have to enter your billing address and other details.
Double-check all the information you’ve entered and click “Pay now” to proceed.
Step 8. Verify your identity
If you haven’t completed KYC on Simplex before, you’ll have to do it now. First, you’ll need to verify your email address.
A verification code will be sent to your inbox. Don’t forget to check your spam folder.
Next up, you will be asked to upload a document that verifies your identity. You can upload either a passport, an ID card, or a driver’s license.
Here are the general guidelines for taking the pictures:
- It has to be a valid, government-issued ID.
- The text and the picture should be clear and easily readable.
- All 4 corners of the document should be in the picture.
- It should contain the date of expiry as well as your name and date of birth.
- Both the picture and the document should be in color.
- The document has to be in English.
- Simplex supports images in JPG and PNG formats. The size limit for files is from 50KB to 20MB.
If you’re going with a passport, you will need to take a singular picture of its two main pages.
If you’re using your ID card or driver’s license, you will have to take two pictures: one of the document’s back and one of its front side.
No matter which document you go with, you will have to manually enter some personal details, such as your name, DOB, and the expiry date of the document you have uploaded.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact our or Simplex’s support teams via the live chats available on our respective websites.
Step 9. Wait for your crypto to arrive
Now, the only thing left to do is wait. You can view your transaction status by going here and entering your payment ID.
Additionally, Simplex will also send you emails to update you about the status of your order. The first one will arrive after your payment is approved.
The next email will arrive after your transaction gets registered on the blockchain. It will contain your transaction ID.
Finally, you’ll receive one email that will ask you to confirm whether you’ve received your crypto or not.
That’s it! Congrats! You are now officially a proud crypto owner.
If there are any issues with your order, you will be contacted by the Simplex support team.
My order has failed. What’s next?
There are several reasons why your order might fail. If there are any issues with your documents, you may be asked to pass KYC again. Otherwise, please wait for the Simplex team to contact you.

If there are any issues with your order or your KYC failed, then please contact Simplex by submitting a ticket here.
I cannot complete KYC/AML. What should I do?
If you have any questions about the process itself, you can contact either our or Simplex’s support teams via our respective support hubs. Just click on the little chat icon in the lower right corner of the screen.
If you don’t have any ID documents in English, you should contact Simplex and consult them about how you should proceed — you may be asked to provide a notarized translation of your ID.
