How to retire a Trade Posting

A Trade Posting is an advertisement that lets other users know you’re willing to buy or sell BTC. 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.

A retired Trade Posting is just like an advertisement that has been taken down – it will no longer appear on the Bitkoin buyers’/sellers’ page. However, because all trades are irreversible, you keep the sales on your trade.

Retiring a Trade Posting is essentially the same process regardless of whether it’s a buy or sell Trade Posting.

Step 1: Go to your Trade Postings

To do this, click on the ‘Trades’ menu from the navigation bar and select ‘Trade Postings’.


Step 2: Select the desired Trade Posting

From your list of Trade Postings, go to the row that contains the details of the trade you wish to retire and select ‘Manage Posting’.


Step 3: Retire your Trade Posting

Click ‘Retire Trade Posting’.


Check and confirm that your refund details are correct then click ‘Retire Trade Posting’.


Your Trade Posting has been retired!


Step 4: Check your wallet balance to make sure your escrowed balance is empty

If you retired a sell Trade Posting, the escrowed amount would be returned to your Wallet available balance immediately. Similarly, if you retired a buy Trade Posting, the escrowed amount would be returned to your bank account immediately.
