Managing Telegram notifications

Telegram is one of the most popular messengers amongst our users. This is why we have an integration for Telegram notifications. This feature makes it much easier for you to be aware of everything that is happening to your Paxful account including trade statuses and your wallet balance. This guide will show which events you can be notified about and how to activate or deactivate Telegram notifications for your Paxful account.

Note: Telegram notifications can be managed in Paxful web version only. Paxful Mobile Wallet does not support this feature.

 You can set your Telegram notifications for the following events:

  • Someone viewed your profile
  • Someone viewed your offer
  • Bitcoin deposit pending
  • Bitcoin deposit confirmed
  • Incoming trade
  • Partner paid you for a trade
  • Trade cancelled/expired
  • Bitcoin sold
  • Bitcoin purchased
