Luno customer care/customer support

This is probably the one low of the luno platform, the support is not particularly top notch, lots of customers have complained about the lack of the following:

1. Luno customer care

2. Luno contact address

3. Luno Nigeria office.

Although you can shoot your queries to their Facebook (, twitter (, Instagram (

I think they can definitely improve on this aspect.

Luno fees

It is good you know the fees charged on luno before you use the platform. Luno fees are:

1. Deposit fees

2. Transaction fees

3. Withdrawal fees

4. Sending/receiving fees from your luno account to other Bitcoin address.

Is luno a trusted exchange?

From my personal experience, I will say “most definitely”.

I have used luno to buy Bitcoin many times and all the time, they have fulfilled my order.

The customer support might not be great, but they are very good and fast at fufilling orders.

If you want to buy bitcoin, ethereum or Bitcoin cash in Nigeria, then luno is a great place to start.
