What’s great about Celsius CelPay is that you can send and receive via both the mobile app and the new web app. We will run through the steps involved with sending a CelPay on both apps below.
Sending Crypto via CelPay on the Celsius Mobile App
Any user with a verified Celsius Network account and with assets in their wallet can send a CelPay transaction in 5 easy steps. Below are the screenshots involved in sending a Celsius CelPay via the mobile app. The description and step-by-step CelPay guide is below the screenshots.
Step 1: Navigate to Main Menu
On the bottom right of your mobile app screen, click on the Celsius Network logo to bring up the main menu. Click on the ‘CelPay‘ button.
Step 2: Start CelPay
After clicking on the ‘CelPay’ button from the main menu, a pop-up screen appears that reads: Use CelPay to send crypto to your contacts! No addresses needed – send up to $2,500.00 worth of crypto quickly and easily with one-touch sharing options. Click on the ‘Start CelPay‘ button.
Step 3: Choose a Celsius CelPay Option
What’s great is that Celsius users have 2 options to send their CelPay transaction to contacts. They include:
- Share as a link > Send a direct link with your preferred apps
- Send to contacts > Send crypto to other Celsians on the network
Please note that ALL CelPay Celsius transactions are completely free. If you choose to share crypto as a link, you can choose to send via email, text messaging or messenger to your contacts. If you choose to send to your contacts, you will need to allow the Celsius mobile app to access your phone contacts.
Step 4: Choose an Crypto Asset to Send via CelPay
Once you decide on the method to send your CelPay transaction, you can choose a crypto asset. Please note that not all assets are available to send via Celsius CelPay even if they are supported by Celsius Network in your jurisdiction. When you get to this step, you will find a full list of crypto assets that are available to send via CelPay.
Step 5: Confirm by Email
After you confirm the asset you want to CelPay and the transaction within the mobile app, you will receive a confirmation email. You’ll need to click on the button to confirm that you want to send the CelPay transaction, and likely, on the landing page, you will have to again click on the button to confirm. Until all of these steps have been fulfilled, your Celsius CelPay transaction will not go through. And voila… you’ve sent crypto assets for free via CelPay!
Using Celsius’ CelPay on the Web App
Users can also opt to initiate and send CelPay transactions via the Celsius web app. Below are screenshots followed by a step-by-step guide.
Step 1: Login & Navigate to Send Section on Web App
Sign-in to your account via the Celsius web (desktop) app. On the top main menu bar, click on ‘Send‘ and you’ll land on the withdrawals page. This is where you can send coins to external wallets as well as to other Celsius members via CelPay.
Step 2: Choose Crypto Asset for your CelPay Transaction
The next step is to choose the crypto asset that you want to send. Please note that not all assets supported by Celsius are available to CelPay to other Celsius users. Stablecoins and CEL token are restricted from CelPay transactions from most jurisdictions. Once you decide on the crypto asset, go to the ‘Destination‘ column (far right), click on the ‘Choose an account‘ drop-down and select ‘CelPay (Send as Link) Share with anyone via Celsius)‘.
Please note that you are unable to send to contacts directly via the Celsius web app. You can only do so via the mobile app.
Step 3: Choose Amount of Crypto you want to CelPay
In the ‘Transfer Amount‘ column (2nd column from the far right), you can choose the amount of crypto you want to send. You can either choose a USD amount or a specific amount of crypto. If you choose a USD amount, Celsius will indicate how much crypto will be sent.
Step 4: Verify CelPay Transaction
After choosing the asset and amount you want to send, you have to click on the ‘Confirm‘ button to verify your transaction. An email confirmation will be sent as well where you will need to click on the button to reach a landing page where you need to confirm one more time. That’s it!
