Email Verification

Email verification is an essential process to start trading on Paxful. It also adds a layer of security to your account for you to restore or unlock your account if needed. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to successfully verify your email.

  1. Log in to your Paxful account, hover over your username on the top right of the page and click Settings from the context menu that appears.

    The Settings page appears.

  2. Under Verify email address click Resend email
    A verification email is sent to your registered email address. 
  3. Open the email in your inbox received from, and click Confirm Email. Your email address is verified successfully. 


  • You can request a new confirmation email only once every 20 minutes.
  • If you do not find our email in your regular inbox, please check your Spam or Junk email folders as well.
  • If your email is verified, you can set a custom username in your Account settings. NB! This can be done only once!

After verifying your email, we recommend you also verify your phone number and set up two-factor authentication for your account.
