Buying bitcoins with online wallets

There is a variety of online wallets available on Paxful (such as PayPal and Skrill) and they can be used to buy bitcoins on Paxful.

The first step of buying bitcoins with online wallets is to look for an offer that accepts that specific online wallet you’re looking for. To do this, you’ll need to input the amount you wish to purchase and the currency you prefer as well as the payment method you’ll be using.

After you find a suitable offer, be sure to read the offer terms before opening the trade. This will show you a brief summary of what the vendor will be requiring from you in regards to payment. Once you have started the trade, a more detailed set of instructions will appear. These are called trade instructions. What the vendor will require from you will vary depending on which specific online payment you’ll be using. For example, online wallets such as PayPal, Skrill, and Neteller will normally require an image of your ID.

After you have paid the vendor and uploaded proof of your payment, be sure to click “Mark as Paid”. If you don’t click on it, the trade will eventually expire and the bitcoins will go back to the vendor.

The next step is for the vendor to confirm the payment. Please be patient because this may take some time. Once the vendor has confirmed the payment, he/she should release the bitcoins and the trade will be complete. The only thing left for you to do would be to leave appropriate feedback for your trade partner.
