As a buyer and seller of cryptocurrency on Paxful, finding out when it is the right time to file a dispute to resolve an issue is very important. To help you out, we've listed below the instances or indicators that you already need to file a dispute.

As a buyer:

  • If you’ve followed the seller’s instructions and completed the payment, but the seller refuses to release the crypto
  • If you made the payment but the seller stops responding and has not released the crypto
  • If you notice any violations of the Terms of Service

As a seller:

  • If the buyer marks the trade as “paid” but is unresponsive
  • If the buyer says they have paid you but you did not receive the payment or there’s an issue with the payment,
  • If you notice any violations of the Terms of Service
