How do I deposit TRY?

Published on Nov 21, 2023Updated on May 23, 20246 min read153

You can deposit Turkish Lira (TRY) from your bank account using Havale, FAST, or EFT. To initiate a transfer, you'll need to access your bank account and provide your unique OKX TR account details.

With OKX TR, you can deposit from your individual TRY bank accounts registered in your name only. Electronic methods such as Papara, PTT, PayCell, Ininal, credit card, and ATMs won't be processed. Commercial accounts, joint accounts, foreign currency accounts or accounts belonging to other individuals can't be used. If you have an account with one of our partner banks (Ziraat, Vakıfbank, Şekerbank, and Fibabank), you can deposit via Havale. Havale deposits are instant and available 24/7.

If you have an account that is not with our partner banks, you can deposit via FAST or EFT. You can deposit ₺100,000 or less from any bank supporting FAST transfers 24/7. You can deposit larger amounts or to non-FAST supported banks via EFT during our banking partner's business hours, Monday-Friday 09:00-16:45, excluding public holidays.

If you submit a bank transfer outside of your bank's business hours, there is no additional action needed. Your bank will process it during the next business day. For more information, please contact your bank.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Why isn't my TRY deposit reflected in my account yet?

We only accept deposits from your TRY bank accounts registered in your name. If the deposit is not reflected in your account within this time, make sure your bank account is qualified to deposit to OKX TR. Typically, deposits from qualified accounts are reflected in your account immediately. In rare cases, it can take up to 20 minutes.

  • Deposits from FAST bank of ₺100,000 or less and deposits from Ziraat, Vakıfbank or Fibabank of any amount via Havale will be reflected in your account instantly.

  • Deposits from non-FAST supported banks (other than Ziraat, Vakıfbank and Fibabank) and FAST-supported banks of more than ₺100,000 via EFT will be processed during business hours, between 09:00 and 16:45 on weekdays.

  • If your bank transfer takes longer than the time specified using a qualified bank account, it may delay due to a heavy volume of bank transactions. For help, contact us at destek@turkiye.okx.com . Please include your UID and proof of your transaction in your message to our team.

  • If your deposit has been returned to your bank account, it may be because the TCKN on your bank account doesn't match your TCKN with OKX TR. Deposits may be rejected for other reasons. In such cases, you're able to view the rejection reasons in your transaction history or email.

To comply with local laws and regulations, only select payment methods will be displayed to your account based on the document that you have provided to verify your identity.
