When to send Zelle Payment? (Newbie asking)


Trying to complete my first Bisq transaction. I am the buyer of BTC and am using Zelle to send USD. At what point in the transaction do I send the Zelle payment? Do I wait for BTC to arrive, or do I send USD first? I am new and unsigned (obviously) and chose to buy from a signed seller with 300+ day Bisq history.

Thanks in advance for any help!

You send as soon as possible right after the payment details are shared with you in the Bisq app.
The seller will release the bitcoin when they see the payment has been credited to them.
Don’t worry, they have to lock the whole amount (deposit + full trade amount) to make the offer, so the buyer has even more protection than the seller.
