Step 4. After choosing the addresses, click the “Check Out” button to proceed. Then you will be led to a web page. On the top of the page you can find a bar with Simplex logo and CoolWallet logo. Then you can choose the preferred payment method.

KYC refers to the verification of a customer’s identity, typically by a financial institution. Customers are required to provide personal information. The information is used to ensure that the customers are not involved in financial crimes such as corruption, bribery, money laundering, and terrorism financing. If you do not complete the KYC process, you may not be able to access some features on a cryptocurrency exchange.
Step 6. Now, the system will send you an email with a verification code. Enter the code and choose the currency you prefer to pay. There might be a cardholder authentication that will ask for your verification code.
