There are over 300 ways to buy bitcoin on Paxful. As this is a peer to peer system, different users have different offer terms. Like let’s say Ebay for money. This is why you will see various offers with different requirements.

Here are the most common options:

Gift Cards

Most gift card offers require the cards to be bought with cash and need an image of the receipt. It will speed up the process if you have these things ready before you start the trade. Some accept e-cards, read the offer terms for all the info. If you are not sure about something, always ask the vendor.

Top tip: Do not upload images or documents until the vendor has responded to you. In case the vendor is away and forgot to switch the offer off it is best not to share your gift card details. Once you have uploaded the images and the gist card number, please click РI have paid

Online Wallets

Paypal, Skrill, Neteller and other online wallets are a very easy way to buy bitcoin, as it is lower risk for the seller, the price is also normally lower. With these payment methods users normally require an image of your ID.

Western Union

Offers with Western Union are normally a better price, many offers don’t require an ID, if online transfer accepted the realease of BTC is normally done pretty fast.

There are many more ways to buy bitcoin on Paxful. Select a payment method and currency you would like to pay in from the drop down menu from the search bar and find an offer you like.

Top tip: Find a seller with a high reputation and always remember to click I have paid once you’ve made a payment.

Happy trading!
