Posting a Sell Ad

Learn how to post a Sell Ad to buy crypto. Sell Ads allow other traders to sell crypto to you.
Ads can only be posted by approved Merchants. Apply to become an approved Merchant here: https://forms.gle/qiAzsPeCphUhZgBM9.

1. Go to the Post Ad Page

You can post a Sell Ad by pressing the Post Ad button in the navigation menu of the application.
Go to the Post Ad page to post an Ad

2. Connect to OpenPeer

Once on the Post Ad page, connect your wallet of choice to OpenPeer (in this tutorial we have used MetaMask) and verify ownership of the account by signing a message.
Note: Signing the message proves valid ownership of the account and is completely free of cost. It cannot transfer any of the crypto in your wallet.

3. Choose Ad Type & Trading Pair

Choose the type of Ad you want to place. To sell crypto, select Sell Order.
Next, choose the token, chain, and the fiat currency you want to trade. Click Proceed.
Choose Ad Type and specify the Trading Pair

4. Add Sell Order Details

After specifying the trading pair, enter the total amount you are willing to sell along with the minimum and maximum fiat limit per order.
You can set the price by selecting either a Fixed or Floating rate. A Fixed rate is the exact price you want to trade at and will not change. A Floating rate is a percentage limit above/below the spot price at the time of trade which will automatically update as the spot rate changes. Depending on what fiat currency you are trading with the spot price can be set as the Coingecko rate or the minimum or median rate from Binance P2P. Click Proceed.

5. Select Payment Method

Select the payment method the buyer will use to transfer fiat money to you. Then Proceed.

6. Fund Escrow Contract

When placing a Sell Ad, the crypto will be escrowed immediately so when a buyer opens an order they can complete the first steps of the trade. To escrow your crypto for sale, enter the amount of tokens you wish to sell in total and send them to your unique escrow address as shown at this step.

7. Wait for Buyers to Respond

Your sell order ad will be visible to all buyers on OpenPeer. When a buyer wants to trade with you, they will open the order from your Ad and your escrowed crypto will be sent to an escrow contract. The buyer will make the payment using your preferred payment method as listed on the Ad. You will be notified via an email notification when a trade is opened. Next, confirm the buyer has made payment correctly and the fiat received in your bank account. Once confirmed, in OpenPeer mark the funds as received and release the escrowed crypto. Then the trade is complete.
