Bitcoin transaction fees

Transactions to wallets of other LocalBitcoins users are free.

Transactions to other Bitcoin wallets are subject to a sending fee. The current fee is visible on the wallet page under the heading Bitcoin transaction fees. The size of the fee changes depending on the current usage rate of the Bitcoin blockchain, we automatically adjust this fee based on the current network congestion to make sure your transactions are confirmed as quickly as possible. The sending fee is paid from your LocalBitcoins wallet when you send a transaction.
