Deposit and Withdrawal Policy (WD Policy)
Trading in any investment opportunity that may generate profit requires Leisertrade customers to deposit money on their online account. Profits may be withdrawn from the online account.
Deposits and Withdrawal/ Refunds are regulated by this WD/Refund policy as well as the generally applicable terms and conditions.
You, the Client, have to perform all the deposits from a source (e.g. single bank account). If you want to start trading, you should make sure this account is in your country of residence and in your name. In order to certify that a SWIFT confirmation is authentic, it has to be sent to Leisertrade to confirm the origin of the money which will be used for trading. If you don’t comply with this WD policy, you may be prevented from depositing the money via Bank/Wire Transfer. If you did not login and traded from your account within six (6) months (“Dormant Account”), your Dormant Account will be subject to a deduction of 10 % each month (the “Dormant Fee”).
Withdrawal of Profits
According to generally acceptable rules, withdrawals must be performed only through the same bank account or credit/debit card that you used to deposit the funds.
Unless we agree otherwise, withdrawals from the Account may only be made in the same currency in which the respective deposit was made.
In addition, when you deposit or withdraw money for trading purposes using alternative payment methods, you should be aware that additional fees and restrictions may apply. Withdrawals are subjected to withdrawals processing and handling fees. Those fees will be deducted from the transferred withdrawn amount. The fees schedule is available on Leisertrade.
Without derogating of the foregoing, Leisertrade may execute withdrawals to a different facility than the one used for the deposit.
Furthermore, when it comes to withdrawals, Client may be required to present additional information and documents.
Due to anti-money laundering requirements (AML), Leisertrade verifies that proceeds from trading are transferred to an account where the beneficial owner is the same as on the trading account. Therefore, it is recommended that a copy of the bank or credit card statement where funds will be sent is provided to Leisertrade prior to submitting the withdrawal request.
Withdrawals will only be effected towards the client. Leisertrade will not to effect withdrawals to any other third party or anonymous account.
Receipt of funds
Banks and credit companies may have different internal procedures upon which funds received will be credited. It is important to note that Leisertrade does not have control over when funds will be available. If you require a transaction confirmation, please contact the Support Department. Additional fees may apply.
Initial Deposits Processed by Debit/Credit Card
In case of credit card deposits, Leisertrade will first refund all amounts up to the amount deposited through that same card. In some cases, the credit card company sets a limit on the amount of time that can pass for issuing a refund. Where this time frame lapses, the funds will be returned to the client through via bank wire. If this is the case or there are profits, please refer to the section above regarding processing.
The withdrawal process at Leisertrade as detailed above is structured around strict guidelines to make sure that funds are securely sent back to their originating source and beneficiary.
