    What is Transfer to Bank?

    Transfer to Bank is a Paxful product that lets you convert Bitcoin into ZAR (South African Rand) and transfer the changed currency into your bank account. 

    This functionality allows users to have better access to digital currencies and it further helps users seamlessly integrate their crypto needs into their everyday lives. 

    How does it work?  

    Transferring your crypto to your account can be done in five easy steps. Keep reading to see how you can use the functionality. 

      1. Start from the Paxful home page and head to your Wallet

        - Your full name
        - Your bank’s name
