a) This is a “pure” exchange rate without any service fees or third party fees.
b) Guaranteed rate means that exchange rate is ONLY valid for 15 minutes after order's creation time. If the payment wasn't received within 15 minutes interval, the rate will be recalculated. The exchange rate also will be recalculated for orders with unconfirmed transactions for more than 24 hours.
c) The system fee (% depends on the exchange direction).
d) Your personal discount. Discount is provided only to registered users (how-to register). You can learn more about discount here.
e) Exchange type. Automatic means there is no human involved and exchange automatically will be processed as soon as we’ll get your confirmed payment. Automatic exchange directions are very fast from few seconds to 5-10 minutes.
f) Required number of confirmations on the blockchain.

3. Now you need to enter the required amount of destination currency (Ethereum) (2) or source amount (Bitcoin) (1) you’d like to exchange. If you change destination amount the source amount will be automatically re-calculated and vice versa:
