Writing good trade instructions

Trade instructions are the more specific and detailed requirements that appear when the individual trade begins. These are the requirements that you set for when they pay you.

Unlike the offer terms, you would want the offer instructions to be as detailed as possible. Give clear instructions of what you need from the buyer and explain the steps that lie ahead (such as info on documents such as receipts or photos you may require). Remember that user sees trade instructions when the trade starts, so here you can put the information that you want to provide after the user accepts the offer terms. Make sure that your instructions are in line with Paxful's Terms of Service.

What NOT to do:

  1. Do NOT suggest to trade off escrow. Any suggestions to trade off-site are strictly forbidden and this kind of activity will get you banned from Paxful.
  2. Do NOT give any personal contact information.
  3. Do NOT give links to outside sites or share URLs. You must process the payment on Paxful.
