On Paxful, offers are specific trade proposals that are split into two types: Buy offers and Sell offers. These proposals have offer options that include fixed currency rates (USD, Euro, etc), cryptocurrency exchange rates, and many different payment methods.
Buy offer: This is a trade proposal created by users who are trying to buy cryptocurrency in exchange for a different payment method (i.e. gift cards, fixed currencies). Payment methods are set by the buyer in this instance. Users can find buy offers here.
Sell offer: This is a trade proposal created by users who are trying to sell cryptocurrency in exchange for a payment method set in the offer. Users can find sell offers here.
Who can create an offer?
An offer can be created by any user. It is important to note that some of the offers require a bond, a minimum balance in your Paxful wallet or KYC.
Why create an offer?
You can trade on Paxful by searching for existing offers. But in this case, you depend on the terms of others. Creating your own offer gives an option to set your own terms, trade partner-related requirements, and create a flow of trades.
