Since its launch, Binance has taken the cryptocurrency world by storm. The China-developed crypto exchange is one of the most popular alternatives to well-established services such as Kraken, Bittrex, Coinbase, and others.

Although Binance started in China, it has since moved and registered its services overseas to avoid strict crypto regulations. Now Binance is based in Lithuania, making it easier for millions of users around the world to use the service.

How to Deposit in Binance on PC

Depositing cryptocurrency on Binance to trade, stake, or sell is a bit different than depositing fiat currency from a bank account or credit card. You will need to send your crypto assets from your external wallet to your Binance account.

The following process will walk you through how to do this.

  1. Log in to your Binance account using your browser.
  2. Click on the “Wallet” button.
  3. Select the “Fiat and Spot” option.
  4. Click on the “Deposit” button.
  5. Choose “Crypto”.
  6. Select the cryptocurrency you wish to deposit.
  7. Choose the desired network.
  8. Copy the address and MEMO information into the required fields of your external wallet.
  9. Enter the amount you wish to deposit into your wallet.
  10. Click on the “Send” or “Receive” button.

If you want to deposit fiat currency on Binance, follow the steps below.



  1. Open your browser and log into your Binance account.
  2. Click on the “Wallet” button.
  3. Select the “Fiat and Spot” option.
  4. Click on the “Deposit” button.
  5. Go to the “Fiat” tab.
  6. Optionally, you may need to complete the identity verification process.
  7. Choose the currency you want to deposit.
  8. Select a payment method from the list (SEPA and Visa or MasterCard are the most recommended options.)
  9. Follow the on-screen instructions and fill in the required fields with your information.
  10. Verify your payment information.
  11. Confirm the deposit.

Once you have fiat currency in your Binance account, you can use it to buy crypto assets.

Additional FAQs

Does Binance have deposit and withdrawal limits?

Account limitations on Binance differ by jurisdiction. You should check your profile page for specific information about potential limits placed on your account.

It's also worth noting that your account may have even tighter limits if you haven't completed the "Know Your Customer" verification process. Binance offers several deposit and withdrawal limit thresholds, each corresponding to the number of levels of the verification process that its users have completed.

How long does it take for funds to appear in the Binance Wallet?

The currency you deposit as well as the payment method will impact the speed of the transfer. Usually, cryptocurrency deposits are fast but can still suffer from network congestion delays. However, fiat currency deposits may take longer as they also depend on your bank's transfer policies.
