How To Retire a Trade Ad or Make it Inactive

A Trade Ad lets other users know you’re willing to buy or sell cryptocurrency. If you create a Trade Posting and decide you no longer want to buy/sell BTC or you are satisfied with the trades you have made thus far, you can retire the post or make it inactive.

Retiring a Trade Ad

A retired Trade Ad is just like an advertisement that has been taken down – it will no longer appear on the BuyCoins trading page. To retire your trade ad, follow these steps:

Step 1: Go to your list of Trade Ads

To do this, select ‘My Trade Ads’ from the Trading Peer-to-Peer menu.

Step 2: Select the desired Trade Ad

From your list of trade postings, go to the row that contains the details of the trade you wish to retire and click on the trade.

Step 3: Retire your Trade Posting

Click on the state dropdown and select ‘Retire'.

Check and confirm that you are retiring the right trade, and click ‘Retire Trade Ad’.

Your Trade Posting has been retired!

If you retired a sell trade ad, the escrowed Bitcoin amount would be returned to your Wallet available balance immediately.

Making a Trade Ad inactive

An inactive trade ad is a trade ad that is no loner publicly viewable by other BuyCoins users. It's only viewable by the poster. An inactive trade ad can be put back as a public trade whenever a user wants to.

To make your trade ad inactive, follow these steps:

Step 1: Go to your list of Trade Ads

To do this, select ‘My Trade Ads’ from the Trading Peer-to-Peer menu.

Step 2: Select the desired Trade Ad

From your list of Trade Postings, go to the row that contains the details of the trade you wish to make inactive and click on the trade.

Step 3: Make your trade ad inactive

Click on the state dropdown and select ‘Inactive'.

Doing this means that your trade ad is no longer publicly available.
