Ethereum and Tether transactions on Paxful or externally rarely fail but you can always check if your transactions went through.
When you send ETH or USDT from one wallet to another, you can check the status of the transaction through Etherscan for ETH and Ethereum based Tether (ERC-20), and Tronscan for Tron based USDT (TRC-20). Check out the steps below to get started:
Each transaction has a transaction ID (also known as a transaction hash). The IDs generally look like a bunch of random numbers and letters and looking something like this:
To find your transaction ID in your Paxful wallet:
- Log in to your Paxful account and head to your wallet
- Scroll down to your Tether or Ethereum transactions at the bottom of the page and select “all transactions” to see your full transaction history
- Once you find the transaction you’re looking for, copy the transaction ID
Once you have the transaction ID:
- Head over to Etherscan.io or Tronscan.org
- Paste in the transaction ID
- From there, you can track your transaction. It usually takes 12 confirmations (it can take up to 30 on some platforms) for your transaction to complete, so hang tight!
