I don’t have a Binance account. How do I receive crypto from a Binance user?
If a Binance user sends crypto to your email address or phone number, you will receive an email or SMS notification. Simply activate your Binance Pay account following the below steps:
1. Register a Binance account
You need to register a Binance account and download the Binance App to receive crypto payments. Please use the exact same email address or phone number your friend sent crypto to when registering a Binance account, otherwise, you won’t receive the crypto and the transaction will expire after 3 days. For instance, your friend sent to your mobile phone with an extra 0 upfront and you should follow the same format to register your Binance account.
