General information

In order to send XRP into an exchange account, you need to know two pieces of information:

  1. the correct exchange r-address to send the funds to

  2. the destination tag for your exchange account

Both of these are provided by your crypto exchange.

For more information about destination tags, check out this video:

Why a deposit might not arrive

The main reasons why funds do not arrive are:

  • There was no destination tag entered in the transaction

  • There was an incorrect destination tag entered in the transaction

You can check this in Xumm under the Events section.

When you review the transaction, make sure the destination tag was entered correctly.

If both the destination r-address and destination tag are both correct and the funds still have not arrived in your exchange account, it is most likely related to one of the following situations:

  • your exchange has not processed that transaction on their side

  • possible technical issues or a processing backlog at the exchange

  • the exchange are withholding your funds.

What you can do to retrieve your funds

They only way to recover your funds is to contact your crypto exchange.

They will have process for you to follow and should provide you with the step by step instructions.

Frequently asked questions

I contacted my exchange and they want me to send them a screenshot of the transaction

Some exchanges require proof of a transaction which includes a screenshot showing:

  • the destination address

  • the destination amount

  • the date

  • the transaction ID/Hash

If you are required to provide this information, here is how to get it in Xumm.

1) Launch Xumm, press Settings -> Security -> Block taking screenshots

2) Exit the Settings screen and press the Events button on the main screen of Xumm.

3) The Event list is a live view of the transactions on the XRP Ledger. Search through the list and choose the transaction where you sent the funds to your crypto exchange. It might look something like this:

You can clearly see the date, destination address, Transaction ID, and destination tag in the above image.

4) At this point you can take a screenshot of the transaction as it will contain all of the information your exchange requires.

Can't Xumm just reverse the transaction for me?

Once Xumm submits a transaction to the XRP Ledger for processing, there is nothing that can be done to change or reverse it. For more information about this, check out this article:
