Learn how to use Tabby Pay to send and receive transactions on the Ethereum blockchain.

Can I send ETH to exchange wallets, or ICO contracts?

Follow

No, you cannot send payments to exchanges. 

Right now we only support web3 enabled Ethereum wallets, eg: MetaMask, Parity, Mist. Adding support for more wallets, such as hardware wallets, is our top priority.

You can only send ETH to wallets that are web3 enabled. Two of the biggest reasons you cannot send to exchanges is because the receiver needs to: 

  1. Own the private key for the wallet
  2. Be able (and willing) to accept the transaction via Tabby Pay


Theoretically, if you sent a transaction to an exchange, someone at the exchange would need to assume your wallet and log-in to Tabby Pay to accept the transaction. 

This isn't technically feasible at this point in time, but we are exploring different ideas to build this functionality in the future.
