Troubleshoot Uncredited Deposits

If your deposit isn’t reflecting, understand that transferring involves:

(1) Withdrawal from an external platform.

An asset withdrawal marked as "completed" or "successful" in the platform from which you're withdrawing your crypto means the transaction was successfully broadcast to the blockchain network. It does not mean it is credited to the platform you're depositing.

(2) Blockchain Confirmation: Wait during possible network delays.

When confirming the network, unpredictable blockchain congestion often occurs due to the excessive number of transfers. Please be patient if confirmations are still pending.

(3) Bitget Credits Funds: Once confirmed on the blockchain.

If an issue persists:

- Be patient if confirmations are still pending.

- Contact if confirmations are done but no credit.

Checking Transaction Status on Blockchain

Monitor your deposit by entering the TXID at the relevant blockchain address (BTC, USDT (OMNI), USDT (TRC20), ETH (ERC20), LTC, BCH, ETC, TRX, XRP, EOS, etc.)
