It is important that you take out time to read this article so that you know how the platform really works.


There are some limitations for new accounts on the ABiTrader platforms due to platform realities, however you can scale through these limitations easily by going through vendor verification.

The verification process is easily and once completed you will be able to trade faster and with larger amount

To start, click on the Sidebar Icon and select "Become A TAT Vendor" from the list of options, follow the instructions on the next page to complete the verification process.

It is Important that you note the following:

* Any of the verification Card/Document listed on the page is accepted, including the temporary NIN Card.

* Ensure that you take your pictures in a well lit place, go outdoors if your house is dark (It is best if you get someone to snap you)

* Ensure that both your face and you picture on your identity document is clear. The Card/Document number too needs to be clear.

*You won’t get verified if your picture does not meet all these specifications, it is best you do it properly.

It is best that you complete this verification before you start making attempts to trade P2P, this will give you a better experience.

Buy/Sell Orders

There are two ways to buy or sell on the ABiTrader Platform:

a) Making use of existing Buy or Sell Orders. (Top Buttons)

b) Creating your own Buy or Sell Orders. (Main Menu Button)

The first is fast, but you would have to make use of the rates set by those buying or selling.

Also if you are selling, you cannot sell more than 1000 Tatcoin using this method, you would have to create a Sell Order.

If you are selling 1000 Tatcoin or below, and you are satisfied with the rate and payment method of existing listed trades then you can proceed.

if you are buying Tatcoin, you can trade using this method easily and securely using Escrow.

During Escrow trades, ensure never to do the following;

1) Click on Release Coin when you haven't received and confirmed payments, this might lead to loss of funds.

2) Click on I have paid when you haven't, you account will be barred for 14 days if you are reported.

Never start trades if you don't have money on ground to send.
Creating your Buy or Sell Orders gives you the flexibility to determine your own rate, but make sure that you have gone through the verification process

Buying/Selling from/To exiting Orders

The "How It Works" section on the top of the page gives you a brief of how to complete other important App tasks. It is Important that you also go through it.

To trade with existing P2P orders, click on the Buy or Sell orders. Click on Peer To Peer and you would be taken to the list of orders.

Click on Peer To Peer and you would be taken to the list of orders.

For every potential trade, there are a list of details about the buyer/seller. 

Most importantly you have to look out for the following.

* Min/Max Limit: this is the minimum and maximum amount that the person is willing to trade, don't start the trade if you don't have up to that amount. 

However, you can buy in bits if no one Maximum limit is up to the amount that you want to buy.

For example, if you want to trade Tatcoin worth #750,000 and no one Minimum or Maximum limit is up to that, you can run more than one trade to get to your amount, or better still create your own order.

Rate: this is the amount that the person is willing to trade with, it is important to pay attention to this as people can set their own rate.

if Tatcoin is selling at 50 Naira and someone chooses to sell his at the rate of 55 Naira, they are allowed to do so, so only enter a trade if you are satisfied with the rate.

Payment Method: this is the person's preferred way of receiving payment, don't choose a payment method that you don't have access to.

Rating and Last Seen: if a trader has so many Dislikes, then you might reconsider trading with them, also check for the person's last seen, you can call them on phone to confirm availability before starting the trade.
