how to buy crypto in MEXC

In the previous part of this article, we have explained how new users can create an account in the MEXC exchange, and how they can set up various security parameters and perform deposit, withdrawal, and transfer of assets.

In this part, we will describe how you can buy crypto using your bank cards or place P2P orders on the MEXC exchange.


A user account in any exchange generally has various sub-accounts. Therefore, different accounts help you manage your funds conveniently. You will find below account types below under the Account section.

  • Spot Account And Spot Trading

Moreover, the spot is the main account of the user. Whenever a user needs to deposit or withdraw assets, then they can do it through their spot account.

As said, you can visualize your assets on the spot account (see screenshot below).

Therefore, using spot trading, users can buy/sell assets at market price. Here also, you will find three different options:

  • Limit- Buy/sell at a specific price
  • Market- Buy/sell at the current market price
  • Stop-Limit- Buy/sell at a limit price once the specific price is achieved

Then, you can select the token pair that you wish to trade from the Market tab. Next, you need to go to the buy or sell section and enter the number of tokens that you wish to buy/sell.

Confirm the trade, and your assets will be visible in your spot account.

  • Fiat Account And Fiat Trading

Fiat trading means trading done via P2P orders. If users wish to buy/ sell assets through P2P, then they have to do it via the Fiat account.

For example, if you want to sell some assets through P2P, then you have to first move the assets to the fiat account.

Similarly, if you buy assets via P2P, then the assets will be moved to your fiat account first. You can later transfer it to your spot account to place any market orders.

  • Margin Account And Margin Trading

To do margin trading, users need to create a Margin account. After account creation, they can transfer assets from their spot account to the margin account. In margin trading, users can borrow assets from the crypto market and trade with them.

Below are the basic steps that users need to follow to perform margin trading:

    • Activate Margin account
    • Transfer assets from your Spot account to the Margin account
    • Borrow assets from market
    • Place a margin trade (Buy/Long or Sell Short)
    • Repayment of a borrowed asset

Below are the basic steps to perform future trading:

  • Activate your Futures account
  • Select the contract type and pair you want to trade- USDT-based contracts are denominated and settled in USDT. And Coin-based contracts are denominated and settled in a specific coin (BTC, ETH)
  • Set your Margin Mode (Isolated, Cross)
  • Transfer supported assets from your spot account to your Futures account
  • Select appropriate leverage for your futures contract.
  • Place orders according to the different order types available on the MEXC Futures contract.

The Market tab lists the various asset markets where users can trade. It is further categorized into different subsections like Spot, future, and margin markets.
