Why Paxful watermarks images?
You may have noticed that all images uploaded in trade chat have a watermark with a trade number and our platform's name. This is a security measure, which prevents sensitive information – gift card codes, credit card numbers, document pictures, etc. from being used in fraudulent activities such as irresponsible re-selling or brokering. We want to prevent scammers from re-selling any gift card codes or abusing any other information which they manage to obtain on our platform.
When images are not watermarked?
There are also reasons for possessing a clear non-watermarked picture. One of those reasons, for example with gift cards, is to solve any questions with the gift card company. So how to get not watermarked images?
- The KYC/ID verification process should be completed and successfully confirmed.
- Images in the trade chat will then be shown without a watermark 24 hours after the bitcoin has been released.
