What is cryptocurrency?
Cryptocurrency is a digital currency that allows quick and secure online payments. It doesn't rely on banks to verify transactions and enables anyone anywhere to send and receive payments.
FARFETCH does not currently accept cryptocurrency as a direct payment method, but we're considering it as a payment method in the near future.

How to pay with cryptocurrency
In the future, here's how you'll be able to place an order:
Add your items to your shopping bag
Head to checkout and select Pay With Crypto
Confirm your order details and click Place Order
On the redirected payment provider page, choose your preferred cryptocurrency and confirm the final amount
Scan the QR code displayed on the screen and send the cryptocurrency of your choice from your wallet
Place your order within 25 minutes to confirm the current cryptocurrency exchange rate
When the payment provider quotes a price in any cryptocurrency they can only honour it for 25 minutes. If the 25 minutes run out, just reload the page. Our payment provider will give you an updated cryptocurrency exchange rate for your payment, with another 25 minute payment window to place your order.
If you don't send enough crypto to place your order, don't worry. You'll be notified immediately so you can send the remaining amount to complete your order.
If you send more than the necessary amount, you’ll be able to complete your order and our payment provider will email you to claim your refund. All you'll need to do is share your wallet address and your refund will be sent back to you.
Sending cryptocurrency to the wrong address
If you send crypto to the wrong address there is a high likelihood that it will be lost forever. Please make sure you scan the QR code with your wallet to minimise this risk.
You can also copy the entire text string of characters of the wallet address and double check the amount is correct before sending a crypto payment.
When you're sending or receiving crypto, always double check the characters at the beginning and end of the address. These should be exactly the same as the address you're sending to, or receiving from.
