Creating a Palremit Account

Creating a Palremit account is easy. Once you sign up and verify your account, the next important step is to complete your KYC (know your customer) verification. It is a stipulated process to ensure user identity management, and compliance. Without completing KYC, you won’t have access to the full range of our financial services.

Once you’ve created your account, go to Settings. Here, you can see “KYC & Compliance”.

Simply click on this button and verify your identity. This helps us to confirm and store user personal data and financial information adequately.

Provide your Bank Verification Number (BVN) and other required identification materials to set up your KYC.

After completing KYC, you’ll see green checks like those in the image above. This indicates that you’re well set-up to start using your shiny Palremit account.

After KYC, you’ll also get access to your virtual NGN account for funding your Palremit wallet.

How to Swap Currencies on Palremit in 5 Easy Steps

This article will walk you through five easy steps to swap your money on Palremit. You can exchange fiat – fiat currencies like Nigerian Naira (NGN), Kenyan Shilling (KES), and US Dollar (USD).

You can also swap your crypto – crypto assets like $Bitcoin (BTC), $Ethereum (ETH), and $Tether (USDT).

Also, you can convert fiat money to crypto assets (fiat – crypto) on Palremit seamlessly. 

In this walkthrough, we’ll show you how to convert NGN (Nigerian Naira) to USDT (Tether). Here are 5 easy steps to swap your money on Palremit.

Step 1: Click on the “Swap” Feature on Your Dashboard

Once you log into your Palremit app, you are first greeted by our simplistic interface. We’ve made it a priority case-point in our design philosophy to make our app easy for all our users to navigate and perform financial transactions.

To start swapping currencies on Palremit, click on the SWAP button in-app to use the feature.

Step 2: Select the Currencies You Want to Exchange

Next, you have to enter the currency you want to swap from and the currency you want to exchange to.

Currently, you can exchange fiat money for crypto assets on Palremit (like NGN – USDT, NGN – BTC, or NGN – ETH).

Equally, you can swap crypto assets back to fiat money anytime you like (for example, USDT – NGN, BTC – NGN, or ETH – NGN).

So, for this tutorial, we’re converting Nigerian Naira (NGN) to some USDT.

✅ So, the first step, you have to select the currency you’re converting from. Simply tap on the button highlighted on the screen.

Afterwards, a pop-up appears asking you to select the currency you want to exchange from. Remember, in this tutorial, we’re swapping our local NGN for USDT.

So, we select “NGN” as the currency we’re swapping from.

Once you’ve done that, you’ll see that the NGN you selected now appears on top as the currency you’re swapping from.

The next step is to select the currency you want to swap to.

Note that the relative amount you get when you swap to another currency depends on factors like the exchange rate. These rates determine how much you relatively get when you convert to another currency.

In our tutorial, we’ll convert from NGN to USDT. So, you simply tap on the button highlighted in the image to select what you want to swap your NGN for.

Then, a pop-up appears again. Select USDT as the currency you want to exchange to.

Step 3: Enter the Amount You Want to Swap

Once you’ve selected the currencies you want to trade on Palremit, the next step is to enter the amount you want to swap.

There are two ways you can do this.

  • First, you can enter the amount you want to exchange manually.
  • Or if you prefer, select the percentage of the total amount you have in that wallet.

For example, if you have ₦10,000 in your NGN wallet as your available balance, and decide to swap 50% of that money. Simply select “50%” or any of the desired percentages underneath the text box.

Otherwise, enter the amount manually.

In our case, we entered the price manually: we are converting ₦5,000 to the equivalent $USDT on Palremit.

Once you’ve finalized the amount you want to exchange, click on “Get Quote” to view the exchange rate between the two currencies you have selected and your exchange summary.

Note: You don’t have to enter the amount for the currency you are exchanging to. Just enter the amount you want to exchange in the first text box and tap on GET QUOTE to proceed.

Step 4: Click on “Get Quote” to See the Details for the Transaction

Now, you’re almost done. Once you’ve clicked on “Get Quote,” you’ll be shown a confirmation page that shows the summarized details of your transaction. Make sure you review this to ensure that everything is in order. 

In our tutorial, we are exchanging ₦5,000 (NGN) to USDT. From the confirmation page, you can see the rate at which we’re converting from NGN ⇒ USDT, the amount we’re converting, and the equivalent we’ll receive in USDT (₦5,000 = 3.08168013 USDT) at 1,622 NGN/USDT.

Step 5: Swap Your Money

Once you’ve confirmed this, simply tap the swap button to complete this transaction.

With that, you’ve exchanged your NGN for USDT. Easy!

Check Your Wallet Balance on Palremit

After exchanging currencies on Palremit, you can see your balance in your wallet.

To see this, go back to your app dashboard, and select “Wallet.”

You can toggle between your crypto and fiat wallets to see your balance across different currencies you own on Palremit.

From this screenshot, you can see the $USDT, $ETH, and $BTC wallet balances.

If you toggle to fiat, you’ll also see your balance for all supported fiat currencies on the app.

Remember, we just swapped for some USDT now. Let’s see if our balance reflects this. Simply tap on the currency you want to look at.

Check Your Transaction History and Monitor Your Account

You can also view your transaction history on Palremit when you select the wallet you want to view this information for.

From the USDT wallet balance, you can see that this user has a 6.31528508 USDT.

But take a closer look at the last transaction; it is the ₦5,000 transaction we just completed in this tutorial.

Going one step further, you can select any transaction you’ve made and view the receipt. You can take a screenshot and save it as reference or send it to anybody for the same purpose, if you need to.
