Frequently Asked Questions

I’ve made a deposit but it’s not showing in my local currency wallet. What now?

We process thousands of deposits a day and use automated systems to allocate them into wallets. If you’ve been waiting longer than two business days for your deposit to reflect in your local currency wallet, it may be because:

  • An incorrect BX reference was used as a payment reference;
  • A cash deposit was made, or;
  • A third-party payment was made

Read our Help Centre article to learn more about how depositing works.

How do I secure my Luno account?

We take every effort to ensure the security of our customers and to keep their cryptocurrency safe, but only you can add additional layers of protection to your Luno wallet. Use these features to better secure your Luno account:

  • Two-factor authentication (2FA)
  • Disabling cryptocurrency sends
  • Choose a strong password and change it regularly, to make it that much more difficult for an intruder to access your wallet.

How do I buy cryptocurrency?

Buying cryptocurrency with Luno is easy. Depending on your region, you will first need to make a deposit using a bank transfer, EFT or any other method available to you. Once your deposit has reflected in your local currency wallet, you can proceed to buy cryptocurrency with those funds.
