  • Users from countries on this list require levels 1 and 2 to use Paxful wallet services and trade on our marketplace. To withdraw funds and to make any trades on Paxful, users must verify their ID.
  • In order to create an offer, you need to be ID-verified.
  • To send funds from your Paxful wallet, you need to verify your email and phone.
  • The per trade limit for a trade is calculated based on the total volume of all active trades available for your current level.  
  • Check if your country is on the OFAC grey list. In case if your country is on the list, to send funds from your Paxful wallet or to sell cryptocurrency, you need to be ID-verified.
