Prices, Exchange Rates, and Confirmations
Cryptocurrency and digital assets are highly experimental and risky. MoneroDirect’s service attempts to provide accurate price and exchange rate information, but this information is highly volatile and can change quickly without users necessarily being aware of these changes. The exchange rate you receive is calculated at the time your payment is accepted.
Returns and Refund Policy
Important: Cryptocurrencies, tokens, and digital assets are, by their nature, generally irreversible, and their exchange rates are highly volatile and transitory. For these reasons, refunds are not possible, even if the wrong address was provided to MoneroDirect. All sales are final.
These Terms are governed by the laws of the Republic of Ireland, and any and all laws applicable therein.
It is prohibited to use or access MoneroDirect from the following jurisdictions:
United States of America, and
Transactions from Users in these jurisdictions are prohibited, and MoneroDirect may seize any funds from Users in these jurisdictions and donate them to a charity at MoneroDirect’s sole discretion. By accessing this site or any services therein, you represent and warrant that you are not physically located in these prohibited jurisdictions.

Privacy and Transparency Statement
MoneroDirect respects the privacy of its Users by not requesting any information that is unnecessary for the use of the service or to comport with our obligations under applicable law.
MoneroDirect also does not in any way obscure the information that it does request or obtain. Due to the inherent transparency of blockchains, transactions to and from MoneroDirect are public and easily correlated. Utilizing MoneroDirect to obscure transactions or assets in any way is pointless and stupid. Law enforcement has full access to blockchain information that goes in or out of MoneroDirect’s system.
You accept that MoneroDirect will comply willingly with all legal requests for information from it. We reserve the right to provide information to law enforcement personnel and other third parties to answer inquiries; to respond to legal process; to respond to the order of a court of competent jurisdiction and those exercising the court’s authority; and, to protect MoneroDirect and our users.
MoneroDirect Frequently Asked Questions:
What is MoneroDirect?
MoneroDirect lets you buy Monero in just a few clicks. But there are a couple steps you need to do first:
If you don't have a Monero wallet yet, you'll need to create one. You can use the official Monero software or use a ready-made web wallet like at MyMonero.com.
You'll need to create and fund an account with our payment processor OKPAY. After funds are successfully credited to your account, you can easily buy Monero right away. All coins you buy will be sent directly to your personal Monero wallet address; no funds are ever stored on the MoneroDirect site.
When you have those steps out of the way, you can get a price quote and proceed from there! Note that exchange rates can be highly volatile. The exact amount of coins purchased will be determined when your payment is confirmed.
