Modified on Tue, Jun 25 at 7:48 PM

On Paxful, we provide the option to sell cryptocurrency for debit or credit cards, including prepaid cards. This article gives you an overview of selling cryptocurrency using any of the supported cards.

Before trading

Before selling cryptocurrency for a debit or credit card, please make sure that you have the means to check the balance on the card and that you are fully aware of how to use the funds as soon as possible.


Searching for an offer

The first step to selling cryptocurrency for debit or credit cards is to look for an offer that accepts the specific card type you have. You’ll also need to enter the amount you wish to sell and the currency you prefer.

After you have found a suitable offer, be sure to read the offer terms before opening the trade. This will give you a brief summary of what the buyer will be requiring from you in regards to payment.

Once you have started the trade, a more detailed set of instructions will appear. These are called 
trade instructions. What the buyer will require from you will vary depending on which specific payment you’ll be using.

Creating an offer

To sell a cryptocurrency, you can also create your own offer.
Here are a couple of tips:

After creating and publishing your personalized offer, wait for a buyer to start a trade with you. Once a trade has started, you will receive a notification. Feel free to discuss all the necessary details with your trade partner.

Completing a trade

Once the buyer has paid you, marked the trade as Paid and uploaded proof of payment, double-check if the payment has been successful on your end.

The last step for you is to release cryptocurrency from the trade escrow. Click the Release button only if you are absolutely sure about receiving the payment.

After a trade

Once the trade is completed, you can leave appropriate feedback for your trade partner. Also, if you like trading with the user, you can add them to your trusted list.
