How to Check Bitcoin Transaction Status

Modified on Wed, Jun 26 at 11:13 PM

Sending Bitcoin from one Paxful wallet to another is instant. But for external wallet transfers, you may need to monitor the process. 

Here’s how to check the Bitcoin transaction status:

  • Look for the transaction ID. You can find it in the transaction history of the sending wallet provider, or, in the case of an ATM, you will see it on the screen and on your receipt. It will look something like this: e2e400094he873ec4af1c0ae7af8c3697aaace9f7f56564137dd1ca21b448502s

  • Go to or and type or paste the transaction ID into the search field. You can see how many confirmations your transaction has.

  • If you’re receiving BTC in your Paxful wallet, the funds should arrive after two confirmations. If you’re sending BTC to an external wallet, it usually takes six confirmations to arrive.

    This can take anywhere from 20 minutes to a couple of hours, depending on how congested the Bitcoin network is.

    If your transaction says “No Transaction Found”, then the transaction never left the sending wallet. In that case, you should contact the service provider of the sender’s wallet.

See our guide on how to deposit Bitcoin into your Paxful wallet.

Why is a different wallet address showing up on the transaction?
Since we use a custodial wallet, you may see a different wallet address listed on the transaction inputs, but don't worry; this is normal.
