You can find your Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Bitcoin Core (BTC) or SLP token address for receiving payments into your Bitcoin.com wallet by tapping the "Receive" button from the “Home” page or inside of your sub-wallet. Your address will be the long string of numbers and letters directly below the QR code for that address.

If the person/company is sending you BCH, then select one of your Bitcoin Cash (BCH) wallet. If they are to send you BTC, please make sure you provide them with an address from your Bitcoin Core (BTC) wallet.

You can switch between your BTC and BCH wallets at the bottom of the page by tapping on the corresponding tab and selecting the sub-wallet you wish to receive bitcoins to.

All Bitcoin Core (BTC) addresses will start with the number "1" or "3".

What can make things a little confusing sometimes, is that Bitcoin Cash (BCH) addresses can also start with either a "1" or "3" if being displayed in the old "legacy" format. (This is because BCH is a fork off the BTC chain).

To help cut down on confusion, a new BCH address format was introduced called the "cash address" format (or cashaddr for short).

All BCH addresses using the new "cash address" format, will start with either the letter "q" or "p"

(If providing an address to receive Bitcoin Cash (BCH), we highly recommend that you provide a BCH in the "cash address" format. This is so that nobody will accidentally send BTC to your BCH address)

Sometimes you may see a BCH address starting with "C", this is the "BitPay" BCH address format.

If you want to swap between the different BCH address formats, you can do so on the "Receive" screen by tapping on the "Cash address/Legacy" button.

Please note that this address will change every time you receive a payment, however, all previously used addresses that have been generated by your Bitcoin.com wallet can continue to receive payments.

You must be careful not to send BCH to a BTC address or vice-versa, as recovery with all wallets is not possible.

If you are purchasing bitcoins for a specific reason, please confirm if you require BCH or BTC before proceeding with your purchase.

Since both Bitcoin Cash (BCH) and Bitcoin Core (BTC) are irreversible payment systems, there is no way to reverse a sent transaction, or for you to recover bitcoins from your end.
