How Do QR Codes Work?

You can add a QR code to your Paxful account to help make your online wallet trades easier and faster. By adding a QR code, you can quickly share your online wallet details in the trade chat, or when you're creating an offer. We’ve broken down the steps on how to add and use a QR code in the Paxful marketplace:

To add a QR code to your Paxful account:

  1. Head to the settings page of your Paxful account and click on Payment details

  3. From there, your QR code will be uploaded to the chat

Notes:

  • If you created a sell offer with an online wallet, your QR code will automatically appear in the trade chat once the trade is started.

  • If you’re the buyer, you’ll need to click on the QR code link to visit your trade partner’s online wallet.


To create an offer with a QR code:

  1. Start by creating your offer as you usually would—if you select an online wallet that is supported by this feature, you’ll have the option to upload your linked online wallet during the first step:

  2. Select the online wallet you’d like to use

  3. From there, you can continue to create your offer as usual 

Note: If you're adding a QR code to your offer, the details will automatically be shared in the trade chat once the trade starts.

Warning: Not all payment methods and regions are available with this feature right now.
