Bitcoin Delivery Times and Transaction Fees
We ran a fee-free service for months, but now we have to start charging for our service as the reality of hundreds of thousands of hits on our web server and our ability to pay rent on our retail location in New York City has sunk in.
We still believe in the powerful potential of cryptocurrency and want to help as many regular folks obtain Bitcoins as possible.
Thanks so much for supporting us in our mission!

Maintenance Fees for Account Balances
At coincafe we want our users to follow virtual currency best practices which include storing your virtual currency in a wallet under your control. coincafe is not intended to be a long-term storage solution for user virtual currency and any coincafe account with a balance that has not had a buy, sell, send, or receive transaction within 30 days will be charged a monthly maintenance fee of 7.99% of the account balance or $99, whichever is greater.
We have set this fee because we really want you to self-custody. For further details, please see our Terms of Service.
We recommend use of a hardware wallet such as those made by Trezor, especially for large amounts of bitcoin. For a software alternative, we recommend Electrum. For other options, please check out Bitcoin.org.
If you have any questions regarding maintenance fees, please contact customer service.
1. Can I get a refund?
Sorry we do not issue refunds on buy or sell transactions. This is due to the irreversible nature of Bitcoin. You are welcome to sell your bitcoins to us.
