Limit orders

Limit orders on Shakepay allow you to buy or sell at a price that you set!

Limit orders on the Shakepay app

If you’re looking to buy $150 of bitcoin when the price drops below $11,000, you can now set it and forget it. When the buy price on Shakepay hits $11,000 or below the purchase will execute. Just make sure you have enough funds!

To set your first limit order, on the app head over to the Buy & sell page and tap on the “Buy & sell” title to switch over to Limit orders.

2FA with an Authenticator app

We’re launching TOTP-based 2-factor authentication. We recommend upgrading for a few reasons:

  • it’s safer: it protects your account from being accessed after a SIM swap
  • it’s more flexible: allows access to the 6-digit generated codes while you travel or when you’re unable to access your phone number

To enable, first download an Authenticator app. We recommend Google Authenticator (links for Android and iOS).

Then, on the Shakepay app, head to the Settings page and tap Security. Flip the Authenticator app switch on and follow the steps.
