7. Deposit and withdrawal methods of Tickmill exchange

Tickmill offers 6 different deposit ports for its customers, including the most popular ones such as Credit, Debit Card, Neteller, Skrill and especially Ngan Luong payment gateway.

Most of them process your deposit instantly, 24/7 and of course with no fees.

As well as IC Markets, I encourage you to use Ngan Luong payment gateway because you will only have to bear the lowest cost compared to other forms of payment, it’s great that Tickmill also offers this payment gateway.

Usually it is only about 0.5% for the exchange rate difference between deposit and withdrawal (calculated at the rate of Vietnamese banks).
