Some of the many available features allow users to transfer their Etoro cryptocurrencies to their Etoro Crypto wallet and exchange them for other currencies or simply transfer their assets to external wallets.
If you’re new to Etoro, chances are you’ll need a hand to grasp the basics of money transfer on the platform. Luckily, we’re here to help. Whether you have a mobile app or access the platform via PC, we’ve got you covered.
This article shares step-by-step instructions on how to transfer cryptocurrency to a wallet using a PC, iPhone, or Android. The guidelines are fairly simple, so let’s dive right in without further ado.
How to Transfer Crypto to a Wallet in Etoro on a PC
Users who register on Etoro can transfer cryptocurrency directly from the platform to their Etoro Money crypto wallet. This allows them to exchange their current crypto assets for another currency or make a payment to their external wallet.
To do this, just follow the detailed instructions below:
- Log in to your Etoro account by visiting this link.
- Navigate to the “Portfolio” tab on the left-hand side menu. You’ll be welcomed by a new interface listing all cryptocurrencies and the open trades you have available for each asset.
- Click on a trade you wish to transfer to your wallet. A new “Edit Trade” screen will appear.
- Select the “Transfer to Wallet” option under “Invested.”
- Review the details of the transfer. Once you’re ready, hit “Transfer” to kickstart the process.
You have now successfully initiated the transfer process.
Etoro will send you a notification confirming your request. You’ll see the “Pending Transfer” note on the trade line. You can cancel the request while the transfer is still pending by clicking on the “Cancel” button to the right of the line. Once the transfer is complete, it’s no longer possible to perform cancellations.
The platform usually takes up to five business days to process the request. In some instances, they may ask users for additional documents. Also, while the request is being processed, it may take extra time to see the coins in the wallet.
Note that there can be further delays in the transfer request execution and that the requests aren’t processed on national holidays or weekends.
Stop Loss and Take Profit Notice
While Etoro processes the transfer request, the user’s position remains open and can be closed by Take Profit or Stop Loss risk management tools. To make sure the request remains active, users are advised to remove or adjust their Stop Loss and Take Profit orders.
The trade will close as part of the transfer process, so its full value will temporarily move to the “Available” balance until the transfer is executed by the platform. If you try to use the funds before the transfer has been completed, it will automatically cancel the transfer request. When in doubt, it’s best to check the “Etoro Money” crypto wallet to make sure the transfer is complete.
When the transfer is completed, users can convert it to other cryptocurrencies or send it elsewhere.
- To transfer money from the Etoro account to the Etoro Crypto wallet, users need to meet the minimal money requirements. Otherwise, they’ll see a “Transfer not available” note.
- Users who fund their accounts with U.S. online banking need to wait seven business days before being able to initiate a transfer.
- Users who funded their accounts with debit cards need to wait 60 days before being able to initiate a transfer.
- Users can only transfer coins one way. It’s impossible to transfer the crypto back to the Etoro platform once it has been sent to your external wallet.
- The Smart Portfolio and CopyTrader crypto-assets shouldn’t be available for transfer in the Etoro money wallet.
