General Questions

Why was my order not executed?

Limit orders are executed when they reach their desired price. However, the actual execution price might vary from the price you specified on the interface due to gas fluctuations. Usually, the execution price and the desired price should be almost identical. However, if you submitted a minimal order (~<1000$), the execution price might be slightly higher to account for fees.

Therefore your order may not be executed because

  • Due to price impact, it wasn’t possible to fill the whole order at the desired price and amount.

  • One of the tokens in the limit order has a fee on transfer (see below).

Before submitting an order, please consult the UI denoting the actual execution price.

Please note: the order history table gets the data from the Subgraph and can show slightly delayed information.

Can I submit a limit order for tokens with a fee on transfer?

No. The tokens with a fee on transfer should not be used with limit orders. Proceed at your own risk.

How do I set slippage while using limit orders?

Slippage is not relevant in limit orders. You specify input amount (e.g. 1000 EMO) and output amount (e.g. 20 EVMOS); limit orders guarantee that you will receive no less than the specified output amount (20 EVMOS ) for your input amount (1000 EMO) if the price for the pair reaches the desired price. Note that tokens with a fee on transfer should not be used with limit orders (read above)

The actual execution price shows "never executes". What Does This Mean?

It means that you're trying to swap a minimal amount of tokens. Therefore, there are not enough tokens to be accounted for the gas fee. In general, you need to increase the amount of the "input" field to get rid of this error.

Is there an expiration date for my limit orders?

Open orders will remain open indefinitely until they are executed or cancelled by users. A customisable expiration date feature is planned for the near future.

Why can’t I create limit orders below the market price?

To sell below market price, you need Stop Limit Orders, not limit orders. Stop Limit Orders feature is coming soon.

I made an order, which is not shown in the order table or stuck at “pending” status.

The order history comes from the subgraph and might show slightly delayed information. Usually, delays are no longer than a couple of minutes at worst. Please refer to the subgraph indicator at the bottom right corner of the order history table.
