Trade statuses determine the progress of your trades.
Each trade on Paxful has a status. There are eight statuses your trade could possibly have:
Active funded – the trade is open, and funds have been transferred to escrow.
Paid – the buyer has marked the trade as paid.
Expired – every trade has a payment window for the buyer to make a payment. When the trade is funded, but the buyer failed to mark it as paid, the payment window expires.
Cancelled – the buyer/seller has willingly cancelled the trade.
Dispute open – either the buyer or the vendor has opened a dispute (a dispute can be started 3 hours after the trade was marked as paid).
Successful – the vendor has released funds from the escrow to the buyer’s wallet.
Awarded seller – a dispute has taken place, and bitcoins were awarded to the seller.
Awarded buyer – a dispute has taken place, and bitcoins were awarded to the buyer.
