Independent Reserve are great. I've used them for over a year now and they are very helpful and responsive to any questions. Highly recommended.Adam D.Google review
The quality of service which Independent Reserve provides is something that you don't find in many other crypto exchanges. Its customer service is fantastic. For a person who just started with cryptocurrencies, his customer service officer, Roger, patiently guided me along the way — highly recommended.Yim S.Google review
Great local and simple to use exchange with outstanding support. I had an issue with transferring currency between an investment platform and an exchange due to my error. Their support went above and beyond to help me out.Patrick I.Google review
Highly recommend Independent Reserve for the level of efficiency and support I've received on many occasions based on lack of experience in cryptocurrency trading on my part. On every occasion the staff have been unbelievably patient, caring and accommodating successfully resolving matters beyond my expectations! Great work guys!Eddie B.Google review
I find the level of service by the support team at Independent Reserve to be prompt, knowledgeable, patient!!! and they work with you to solve the issue. Yesterday, I was using PayId for the first time and after a few false starts, Melanie had me all sorted out. A previous issue I had with my initial purchases was also extremely well-handled. They way they handle queries, educates you and gets you off to a good start...Graham T.Google review

What is OTC crypto trading?
OTC stands for over-the-counter and is often referred to as off-exchange trading. OTC trading is not specific to crypto; and is an essential feature of most tradable markets.
Usually, an agent or broker is used to bring buyers and sellers together. This differs from on-exchange trading, where many buyers and sellers can post their own price levels on an order book and wait for an opposing buyer/seller to trade with them at their posted price.Contact our OTC desk
