Good exchange but lacking in account verification speed - took me 2 and a half months to get there

Useless don't bother uploading your ID. The two morons running the NZBCX could not run a piss-up in a brewy And Sam (review below) your an idiot and a shill, so sue me for defamation so I expose in court the truth abut how poorly NZBCX is run and what a sham it is! To be honest I think-these guys are just KYC data collecting passports and drivers licences. Sam below is a Clown!

Well I don't understand. If you are not satisfied with their service, why don't you use other exchanges? Why does it have to be NZBCX? if you write bad comments everywhere, remember that they can also sue you for defamation once their service is back and successful?? All bitcoin exchanges in NZ have to have a license now. Even though other exchanges SEEM OK right now, they should eventually face the same problem with FMA and the banks will close bank accounts of exchanges including bitcoin traders' when they found out bitcoin trades. Better to be careful if you don't want to get your bank account closed. I haven't had any problems with NZBCX anyway.

Their support is non-existant and they will not reply to any form of message despite them having your BTC in their account. Forget about bank transfers....they wont tell you when you sign up....but they cant/wont do them anymore which makes their exchange useless. In short, they are slowly dying and don't really take their business seriously anymore. Avoid at all costs unless you want to have problems getting either your BTC or fiat out of them.

My account hasn't been verified for long time which really made me so frustrated. However, reading their announcements updated and some other articles on NZBCX on the news recently, now I absolutely accepted that reason why account verification has been suspended. I even more put trust in them. I think they have been doing the right thing to protect customers and their business following all legal regulations. Very preferable and trustable actually. I'm not sure other exchanges are seriously following the regulations or not. This is not NZBCX problem, This is the one primarily caused by the banks in NZ I feel. It's a kind of social problem. I know financial industries in NZ would like to accelerate Fintech but it's runing counter to it. If there are people who have been frustrated by not having verified account, I recommend you understand their situation and regulations.

This site worked extremely well initially but now it seems to have been forgotten by the owners? I've been trying to extract some funds from my account and even after numerous emails there has been no response from Dave (or anyone else) I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it doesn't turn into a mini version of Mt Gox!

I can't do nothing with my money sitting in my NZBCX account until the owners have verified my account. BAD BAD BAD. Don't even try to register. Go to Cryptopia.

Very good site.. I trust this...

Nzbcx really should make up their mind if they're open for business or not. And if not, not waste people's time having them sign up but then not doing verification. And if they are, get on with it. I signed up about 6 weeks ago and send them a number of messages, but no response.

Sight is good running over 3 years. I found them both on linkedin in seconds, https://www.linkedin.com/in/daveseyb/ https://www.linkedin.com/in/robertclarksonnz Talked to the owners many times. Basically they are two old time bitcoin guys who set up the exchange because they were just into bitcoin but they have lives and its to dudes against the banks the hackers and the world of want to be crypto millionaires, so they don't take on new users lightly but look after their old school users. If you can get an account its where you want to be.

I submitted a verification request a while back but had been delayed in supplying the email. I submitted my details to get verified and after a week wait they replied saying they're suspending all verifications. I was about to argue that I had requested verification long before they put the hold on. I had actually already sold BTC on the exchange so had several thousand NZD sitting there ready to go. I emailed them 4 times without a response. Also messaged their page on Facebook (no response) and tried to find private profiles of the devs on FB/Linkedin with no luck. Honestly, I can't recommend these guys at all. They seemed good at first and I like the idea of it all but it's just left me with a sour taste in my mouth. Will change this review if they come to the party, but otherwise avoid at all costs.

Good service, personal and direct communication with the owners. The exchange is basic and not very hectic, but that's also a good thing for people just trying to get into Bitcoin. The big exchanges are quite confusing and intimidating to newbies. NZBCX is a good place to cut your teeth, and also for hobbyists/dabblers.

Been waiting for verification for weeks, have sent multiple emails etc. Was promised fast reliable service but no evidence of it yet.

I may be misusing a review here but I've been trying to get in touch with the operators for a few days now to verify an account and doesn't seem to be much response! I'll stick the star rating up if theres any response soon

When another service closed I moved over to NZBCX and have been thoroughly happy with it. Have bought, sold and withdrawn NZD with no issues. The site owner is contactable and responsive. Market prices realistic.

Pretty happy with their customer service. Pretty much within 2 business days account created and verified. The depth of the order book is good and the spread is reasonable. I think this will be a successful exchange in NZ and I will probably use it often if it stays this way.
