• How Do I Make Money As An Affiliate?

    If a new user signs up on Paxful using your unique affiliate link, you’ll earn a portion of the standard escrow fee every time they buy crypto in the marketplace. 

    Our standard escrow fee is 1% of the trade value, and the affiliate program earnings are calculated based on this fee, except in cases where the escrow fee is lower than 1%. If the escrow fee is less than 1%, the affiliate fee is calculated based on this lower fee. 

    Here’s how the earnings work based on the program tiers:

    • Tier 1: You’ll earn 50% of the standard escrow fee each time one of your affiliates buys crypto on Paxful. 
    • Tier 2: You’ll earn 10% of the standard escrow fee when people who your affiliates bring on board, buy crypto on Paxful.
