- Once a deposit request is initiated, the user will get a list of peers to whom the transfers have to be made.
- You will get the bank account details of the withdrawer, and you need to transfer them money through your chosen UPI/NEFT method within a timeframe.
- You also need to put the reference number of your transaction in Bitbns account after you complete your transaction.
