Can You Withdraw From MEXC?
Yes, MEXC allows customers to withdraw their funds stored in the exchange's spot wallet whenever they want. For withdrawals, MEXC largely covers only crypto withdrawals as it's primarily a trading platform. This means customers cannot directly withdraw money into their bank accounts. MEXC does have a P2P platform that can be used to convert crypto to cash with other sellers using multiple payment methods such as credit/debit cards, bank transfers, and third-party gateways.
The available channels of transfers on MEXC include:
- Withdrawal of crypto to an external wallet: Directly transfer crypto assets from the MEXC exchange to any external wallet. This can be another exchange wallet that supports crypto-to-fiat transactions or a personal crypto wallet like Trust Wallet or MetaMask.
- Withdraw via MEXC peer-to-peer (P2P). Another option is to use the MEXC P2P platform by first converting the underlying asset to a stablecoin (most preferably USDT). From there, the crypto can directly be exchanged for cash with other traders. The resulting cash will be deposited into the user’s designated bank account. This comes with no fees attached.
How To Withdraw from MEXC to a Bank Account
MEXC doesn't support direct fiat withdrawals to a bank account. However, it allows users to engage in P2P fiat trading which is easy to execute and comes with zero charges. MEXC’s P2P platform works in a similar fashion as other popular options like Binance P2P. The alternative method to cash out to a bank account is to transfer the crypto to another crypto exchange with fiat support and withdrawals using a bank transfer.
To sell cryptocurrency and withdraw fiat on MEXC, follow these detailed steps on the P2P platform.
Step 1 - Log in to MEXC
Head to the MEXC website and click on the ‘Login’ icon to sign in. The sign-in process is fairly straightforward. There's a captcha challenge and an email verification to be completed. Once all these are satisfied, the user will be welcomed into their account.
Step 2 - Transfer the crypto asset to P2P
Select the ‘Transfer’ icon on the top right-hand corner. The ‘Transfer’ page is set to ‘Futures Account’ for the recipient account by default. Click on the ‘Futures Account’ and change to ‘Fiat Account’. Then select the crypto asset to transfer by clicking on the ‘Crypto’ icon. Fill in the amount to transfer and select the ‘Transfer’ button to move the funds to the P2P platform.
Note: the ‘Fiat Account’ is used solely for P2P trades. It stores both stablecoins and traditional cryptocurrencies.
Step 3 - Choose the payment method
For those making a first-time withdrawal, a payment method needs to be set up. To do this, select 'More' and then 'User Center' at the top of the dashboard. From here, click on the ‘Add Payment Method’ to fill in the designated bank account details. Once done, select the ‘Confirm’ button to complete the process.
Step 4 - Find a buyer
Once a payment method has been sorted, go back to the ‘Home’ tab and locate the ‘P2P Trading’ icon. After tapping on the icon, switch from 'Buy' to 'Sell'. Select the crypto asset to be sold and a merchant to trade with from the list of options available (MEXC enables P2P trades in USDT, BTC, ETH, and USDC and fiat currencies such as Vietnamese Dong (VND), Russian Ruble (RUB), and South Korean Won (KRW). For this tutorial, we will sell Tether (USDT).
Once the preferred merchant has been identified, click ‘Sell USDT’. To fast-track the process, users can also use the ‘Quick Trade’ option. This will automatically choose the most suitable merchant based on the asset selected.
Click on the ‘Amount’ box and fill in the quantity of the coin to sell. Then select ‘Quick Trade’ and choose the preferred payment method.
Step 5 - Complete P2P trade and withdraw to bank
The final step is to review the transaction details. Upon being satisfied, click the ‘Order Info’ button to initiate the P2P trade. The merchant will be given a deadline to deposit funds into the designated bank account.
Once the buyer notifies the platform of the completed payment, MEXC will contact the seller to release the cryptocurrency (USDT). To do this, head back to the P2P platform and click on ‘I have confirmed the payment’, and tap on the ‘Confirm’ button that pops up. Afterward, the trade will be finalized and the funds will be transferred to the nominated bank account.
