Trade status

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.
