Are The BTC Purchases Immediate?
Bitcoin purchases at Premier Bitcoin ATMs happen immediately so you should receive the coins within a few seconds. 9 times out of 10, if you don’t see the coins in your wallet, it just needs to be refreshed by closing out of the app and opening it back up again. Some wallets will not show the coins until the transaction has been confirmed on the blockchain, which typically takes less than 10 minutes, unless the network is running slow due to high transaction volume. If you are concerned about your coins not being sent, please check your transaction on the network by going to www.btc.com and using your wallet address to search for your transaction.
