In the course of a trade, many factors could lead to a trading failure, including the common factors such as 1. payment failure due to incorrect passwords, 2. Exceeding the trade limits of the card. If users encounter trading failures, please self-check further or contract Customer Support to find the causes.

Users should be aware of the system reminder accordingly.


16.  How Come a User Account is Disabled?

Disabling a user account is a result of risks control over the user account suspected of abnormal trading activity.

(Please note: the failures will be erased once the trade is completed, without any effect on following trades.)


17.  Any Differences between Using a Credit/Debit Card and Leveraging a Third Party?

Users can purchase crypto assets using a credit/debit card or leveraging a third party, both of which serve as a fiat on-ramp gateway. They only differ in the operation process. Using a credit/debit card, users do not need to jump to the platform of the third-party payment provider for the payment, and they can complete all the purchase process on AscendEX once directly binding their cards to their accounts. With the Credit/Debit service, users can buy crypto in a faster speed by skipping the actions required by the third-party payment method.
