Paxful Affiliate Program FAQ
What is Paxful?
Paxful is a peer-to-peer bitcoin marketplace that enables users to buy and sell bitcoin with their choice of over 300 payment options. It’s like eBay, but for money — and totally without limits.
Our platform connects over half a million users all over the world. All of our users are protected by the Paxful escrow service, which means they can safely transact knowing their funds are safe.
What is the Paxful Affiliate Program, and how does it work?
The Paxful Affiliate is an exciting opportunity for users to be rewarded for sharing Paxful with their friends and followers. The program allows you to earn 20% commission on the escrow fee every time one of your direct referrals makes a trade.
Racking up referrals is easy when you feature your Paxful affiliate link in the content you generate, share it on social media, or advertising it on your website. You can sign up here right now with absolutely no strings attached!
How many tiers are in the Paxful Affiliate Program, and how do they work?
You aren’t limited to earning money through your direct referrals. Instead, there are two tiers in the Paxful Affiliate Program — one direct and one indirect:
Tier 1: Affiliates who sign up directly through your link are considered Tier 1 affiliates.
Tier 2: Affiliates who sign up through one of your Tier 1 affiliates’ referral links are considered your Tier 2 affiliates.
What is the commission structure for each tier of the program?
You get paid anytime one of your Tier 1 or Tier 2 affiliates successfully completes a trade on Paxful and we collect an escrow fee. The commission structure is as follows:
Tier 1: You receive 20% of our escrow fee for successfully completed trades by this user
Tier 2: You receive 10% of our escrow fee for successfully completed trades by this user
If my affiliate is trading with another affiliate, do I still get full commission?
If two Tier 1 affiliates are trading with one another then you receive 10% commission on the trade instead of 20%
In all other cases of two affiliates trading with each other you receive full commission
When do I get paid?
Earnings typically get credited to your affiliate wallet instantly after your affiliate’s trade completes. Once your affiliate wallet balance reaches $10, you can transfer the bitcoin balance from your affiliate wallet to your Paxful wallet. Pro Tip: You can sell your bitcoin earnings on our platform for additional profit!
Where can I view my affiliate earnings?

I have a bitcoin-related social media channel, and my followers are interested in buying or selling bitcoin. Should I recommend Paxful as a way to do so?

Where do I find my affiliate link?

Why do some of my referrals make dozens of trades, while others have only registered without making a single trade?
Different users have different needs. Some may want to make their first bitcoin purchase on Paxful and hold it for months or even years, while others will keep using the platform to buy or sell bitcoin. The activity level of your users may also depend on what content you create to refer them and who you’re targeting.
Can I create custom affiliate links for tracking purposes?

Where can I view my custom track ID’S?

What countries should I target when looking for referrals?
Paxful has worldwide benefits and can be used virtually anywhere with internet access, so it is really up to you what markets you want to target — local, regional, national or otherwise! Currently, most of our users are from the U.S., while Africa and Asia are our fastest growing markets.
What content and advertising sources are the best ways to attract traffic to my affiliate link?
There are many different sources that can work to your advantage, including your blog, your website, Google AdWords, Yandex.Direct, Yahoo/Bing ads, mobile ad networks, YouTube channels and other major entertainment and financial platforms. Social media is also a great way to promote your affiliate link. It is a good idea to use track ID’s for all the different promotions you do, so you can observe what works best for you and learn from that.
A user to whom I recommended Paxful registered without using my link. Can I still get commission?
Unfortunately, no, you cannot. Affiliate commissions can only be earned from users who sign up through your unique affiliate link.
