With funds available in your CoinJar, you can send a new payment to any CoinJar member, contact or digital currency address by making a new payment.
Sending digital currencies
- Open the CoinJar app
- On the Home tab, choose 'Send' from the Quick Actions bar
- Select the account you'd like to send from
- Select the destination type, or tap 'Wallet address' to enter a digital currency address
- Enter the amount you'd like to send
- Review the details are correct, then 'Swipe to send'. You can also add a short note to the transaction for your reference.
Before finalising your payment, be sure to check that you have entered the correct address and any supplementary information such as the destination tag or Memo ID, if applicable.
After the transaction has been submitted, you'll receive a payment receipt which can be shared with the recipient if needed.
When sending funds to a Contact from a digital currency account, for example your Everyday Bitcoin account, the Contact will only appear as a possible destination if an address matching the sending currency is saved to that Contact.
Receiving digital currencies
Before receiving digital currencies into your CoinJar, you should review CoinJar's address requirements.
- Open the CoinJar app
- On the Home tab, select the digital currency account you'd like to receive funds into
- In the Quick Actions bar, tap 'Show'
- Review any warnings about receiving funds, and select 'Show address'
- Under Wallet Address, tap 'Copy', or share the QR code to receive payments at this address.
Internal (off-chain) payments
Sending digital currency payments to any external address will send that amount via that currency's blockchain. However if your recipient is also a CoinJar member, you can send the amount directly to their CoinJar, avoiding the blockchain altogether. This is called an internal, or off-chain payment.
Whether you're sending to a CoinJar-generated receiving address, or a CoinJar username, the payment will automatically be processed internally. No blockchain processing fee or delay will occur. Outgoing Bitcoin transfers will fail to send if the amount being sent is below our system’s minimum requirement of 0.0001 BTC.
