Selling cryptocurrency for cash at a Bitcoin ATM

To sell crypto for cash at a Bitcoin ATM, you will first need to find your closest Bitcoin ATM that allows you to sell. When using the ATM Locator online, be sure to apply the filter "Buy and Sell." Not all Bitcoin ATMs allow you to buy and sell crypto, which is why using this filter is essential. 

Look for the purple location marker as it indicates that this machine can facilitate two-way transactions and allow you to both buy and sell bitcoin. 

Currently, you can only sell bitcoin and litecoin at a CoinFlip ATM. 

Read and accept the Terms of Service in your own time, and know that all Bitcoin transactions are final and non-refundable.

Depending on the machine, you will only be able to sell in increments of $50.

Next, the Bitcoin ATM will print a QR code receipt. Using your crypto wallet app, send the exact amount of crypto listed to the CoinFlip wallet address on the receipt. 

After sending the exact amount of crypto to CoinFlip, you must wait for one confirmation of your transaction on the blockchain. Once confirmed, you will receive an SMS stating that your funds are ready for withdrawal. 

If it has been a few minutes and you haven't received a text message, please call customer service at (773)-800-0106.

After you have received confirmation, you can redeem your receipt for cash at the ATM. Just scan the QR code on the ticket with the camera on the ATM. Once you have confirmed your identity by entering your phone number, the machine will dispense your cash.

Sell receipt tickets are only valid for 45 minutes after they are printed, so it is important to complete this transaction during this window of time. 

If, for any reason, it has been longer than 45 minutes since the receipt was printed, please call customer service at (773)-800-0106, and they can revalidate the ticket for withdrawal. 

What are the fees for selling crypto at a Bitcoin ATM?

CoinFlip charges a flat 4.99% fee for selling crypto for cash in addition to a minimum network fee of $1.99. All fees will be displayed in the price of cryptocurrency being sold.
