“On 24th October, the payment details for deposits will be changed in our system. If you will send funds to the previous bank account, the transfer will be returned by the bank,” BitPay stated.

“We do our best to ensure that the change of the service provider will go seamlessly. However, please be aware that in the first days after launching there may be slight delays in crediting deposits and processing withdrawals.”

No major changes for the clients

The exchange also assured that the change of payment provider will not affect its liquidity pool.
