Think about how and where you can attract affiliates. Whether it's through your personal website or social media accounts, you can share your link with anyone anywhere in the world.
Every time a user clicks on your embedded link, we tag them with your unique ID. Note that you won't be able to refer yourself.
After following your link to Paxful, the user must sign up to become your affiliate. After that, you'll get paid every time they make a trade.
You earn 50% of standard escrow fees from your direct Tier 1 affiliates and 10% from trades made by Tier 2 affiliates.
Last up is the most important step. Following a successful trade, you'll receive your payment in bitcoin.
Paxful is a peer-to-peer bitcoin marketplace that enables users to buy and sell bitcoin with their choice of over 300 payment options. It’s like eBay, but for money -- and totally without limits.
Our platform connects over half a million users all over the world. All of our users are protected by the Paxful escrow service, which means they can safely transact knowing their funds are safe.
The Paxful Affiliate Program is an exciting opportunity for users to be rewarded for sharing Paxful with their friends and followers. The program allows you to earn 50% commission on the escrow fee* every time one of your direct affiliates makes a trade and 10% commission on the escrow fee* when your direct affiliates’ referrals make a trade.
*The escrow fee is calculated as 1% in all affiliate payouts, except the cases where the affiliate fee is lower than 1%. If the escrow fee is lower than 1%, the affiliate fee is calculated based on the lower fee.
Racking up affiliates is easy when you feature your Paxful affiliate link in the content you generate, share it on social media, or advertising it on your website.
You aren’t limited to earning money through your direct affiliates. Instead, there are two tiers in the Paxful Affiliate Program -- one direct and one indirect:
Tier 1: Affiliates who sign up directly through your link are considered Tier 1 affiliates.
Tier 2: Affiliates who sign up through one of your Tier 1 affiliates’ referral links are considered your Tier 2 affiliates.
You get paid anytime one of your Tier 1 or Tier 2 affiliates successfully completes a trade on Paxful and we collect an escrow fee. Our standard escrow fee is 1% and the affiliate commissions are calculated based on the standard escrow fee, except the cases where the affiliate fee is lower than 1%. If the escrow fee is lower than 1%, the affiliate fee is calculated based on the lower fee. The commission structure is as follows:
Tier 1: You receive 50% of our standard escrow fee for successfully completed trades by this user
Tier 2: You receive 10% of our standard escrow fee for successfully completed trades by this user
If two Tier 1 affiliates are trading with one another then you receive 25% commission on the trade instead of 50%
Earnings typically get credited to your affiliate wallet instantly after your affiliate's trade completes. Once your affiliate wallet balance reaches $10, you can transfer the bitcoin balance from your affiliate wallet to your Paxful wallet. Once the balance of your Affiliate Wallet reaches a total lifetime value of $300, you will be required to submit identity and address verification.Pro Tip: You can sell your bitcoin earnings on our platform for additional profit!
