Next, select the wallet that you want to sell Tether from. You can use your LocalCoinSwap platform wallet or you can sell directly from your MetaMask wallet. Your Tether will need to be held in the wallet selected, as well as a small amount of ETH to pay the blockchain transaction fees.

STEP 4: Fund Escrow and Request Payment

Once you receive notification that the buyer has accepted your trade you need to Approve the ERC20 trade, and then escrow the Tether.

Next you tell the buyer where to send the payment. This could be your bank details, email address or something else depending on the agreed payment method.

STEP 5: Mark Payment as Received

During this period, your Tether is being held in a secure escrow smart contract. If there are any issues with the payment, you can click the “raise dispute" button and a dispute resolution manager will join the trade to assist.

Once you have received the payment, you need to tap the “I have received payment from username” button, to release the Tether to the buyer.
