How much does it cost to sell something on Haven?
Haven has absolutely no platform fees so aside from transaction fees needed to use cryptocurrency (negligible for most coins), it is totally free to sell goods and services in Haven.
How can I pay for my order?
All Haven orders are paid in cryptocurrency, and you can choose to pay either from the internal Haven wallet or from any other wallet. To send funds into your Haven wallet, tap on the coin you want to receive in the wallet, then tap “Receive” at the bottom. You will see a string of numbers and letters, which is the address you need to send your funds into. You can either tap “Copy Address” then put that address into another wallet, or scan the QR code with a mobile wallet.
What is payment protection and how does it work?
By using payment protection you are putting your funds in escrow to reduce the risk of a vendor not delivering their order. Payment protection uses moderators who will step in to protect users in the event that a dispute is opened.
What currencies are supported on the Haven wallet?
Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin, and Zcash
