We only support physical cash (in person) and debit card deposits (in-person) for Canadian Dollars (CAD) via our Canada Post partnership.
For all other cash currency deposits (USD, EUR, GBP, AUD, CHF,) Kraken does not currently accept physical cash, checks, debit cards, credit cards, PayPal or similar services.
Important: Do not mail checks or deposit physical cash directly to any of our bank accounts or addresses. Any checks we receive will be destroyed. Only follow the deposit instructions provided to you on your Kraken account.
Why is physical cash not more widely accepted?
Accepting physical cash makes it difficult to comply with financial regulations. The partnerships that can make it work are rare.
