Trastra Breaks their fees down into three types: service, card, and crypto. That's pretty simple, so we won't go into a heap of exposition. It's worth noting that Trastra's fees are all well within industry standards, with a few actually being far below the usual rate.

Trastra Fees: FAQ

Does Trastra charge to send or receive money?

Trastra doesn't charge EEA citizens a fee to send or receive money (in EUR).

Other types of currency (GBP, USD, etc.) will incur a small currency conversion fee, though sending crypto to/from a Trastra wallet will remain free.

Why does Trastra charge for withdrawing funds?

Trastra charges for the withdrawal of funds because that's the industry standard. Whether you ask e-money transfer services, P2P lenders, or e-wallets, they'll all say the same thing - it costs money to process funds.

So, understandably, Trastra charges a very small fee to avoid losing money on every transaction - after all, that would be... expensive.

Why is Trastra so expensive?

This is a funny question that we actually get far more often than you think. If you compare Trastra and other services (Skrill or AstroPay, for example), Trastra is actually shockingly cheap. Take a look at the table below for more information:

Fee TypeTrastra FeeCompetition's Average Fee
Currency ConversionFree (crypto>EUR)1.5-4%
DepositsFreeFree or a flat (~€3) fee
SEPA TransactionsNo more than €31.5-3%
ATM TransactionsNo more than €31-3% + flat (~ €5) fee

Trastra Limits: FAQ

What is an unverified Trastra account's limit?

This is a really odd question for one reason - unverified Trastra accounts technically don't have limits. When you use a similar service (Skrill, for example), you'll be told right from the start what you can and cannot do with your unverified account. Trastra, on the other hand, specializes in cryptocurrency.

As such, they don't really offer any services to unverified users, as their entire business model relies on the physical card - which is only available to verified users.

In other words: 

  1. Registration gives you an account.
  2. Verification allows you to order a card.
  3. Without a card, you cannot do anything with funds in Trastra (other than send them to a buddy).
  4. Once you have a card, your account will have limits applied.

So without a card, you technically don't have a limit, as you can't use the account for anything worth limiting.

How much money can I have on Trastra?

So, we know that Trastra's whole thing is crypto. As such, their cap for fiat (government-issued; EUR, USD, etc.) currency is rather low at only €8,000.

However, their cryptocurrency limits are incredibly forgiving. By the end of a single year, you can have up to €300,000 in your crypto wallet (€25,000 per month * 12 = €300,000). In other words, if you're looking for a place to store large amounts of crypto, Trastra is an excellent choice.

If you want a standard e-wallet, though, other services are tailored to your needs a bit better than Trastra.
