 Sending Bitcoin fees

  • Paxful charges a flat send out fee of 0.0005 BTC for every send out from the wallet to an external Bitcoin address.
  • This fee covers the associated miner fee and maintenance of our secure wallet infrastructure.
  • Only the first 5 internal transactions per month are FREE. Starting from the 6th transaction - 1 USD fee applies.  

Please note

An internal wallet send out fee of $1.00 has been established due to the high amount of off-escrow trades on our platform. Off-escrow trades are trades made without our consent as they happen out of our regular trade process. This fee is used to prevent certain users from abusing our Terms of Service.

Bitcoin rate differences

  • Paxful uses average market Bitcoin currency rate.
  • External wallet service may have different Bitcoin rate from Paxful. In the case of external service, Paxful cannot affect the currency rate seen in the recipient's wallet.
  • Some cryptocurrency wallet services have a deposit fee. This is a fee deducted from incoming transactions.
