The release of Zumo 2.12 signals another exciting milestone, as it allows you to set up price alerts that notify you when the price of Bitcoin or Ether reaches a certain level. Price alerts were one of our most requested features, so we are delighted to be able to offer this functionality to Zumo users.

Getting started with price alerts

Firstly, to make sure that you get the most out of this feature, please ensure that you turn on push notifications for the Zumo app on your device.

The next step is to open your Zumo app, then tap on the Exchange tab at the bottom-centre of the screen. Next, tap on the bell icon at the top-right of your screen - this will take you to the Price Alerts page, where you can view your active alerts and create new ones.

To create a new Price Alert, tap on the +Alert tab at the top-right of the screen. At this point you can view you Balances of both Bitcoin and Ether and can choose which currency you would like to create a Price Alert for.

Once you have decided on your cryptocurrency, you will be taken to a sliding price scale - simply move the needle with your finger across the scale until it reaches the price point that you would like to receive an alert for then tap on the Create Price Alert tab.

That's it! You've created your first Price Alert!

Next steps

After setting up your Price Alert, you can sit back and relax. If your chosen cryptocurrency hits the price level that you selected, you will be notified both on your device and in-app.

When you receive a notification and tap on it, you will be sent to a price chart within the Zumo app and will be able to push a transaction, be it a buy or a sell.

Please be aware that, as we are a non-custodial wallet provider, we cannot sign the transaction on your behalf. This means that only you can push the transaction through once you have received the notification and decided that you want to buy or sell.

We are planning to unveil more innovative features as we move forward into 2021 and value your suggestions and feedback.

Please email support@zumo.money and let us know what you would love to see in-app in the future!
