Paxful is different from most other Bitcoin Exchanges on the market. They simply facilitate the deals between a buyer and a seller, which means that they will charge lower fees, only 1%. 

They are however not as userfriendly as some of the other alternatives we have rated.

Paxful Review

Paxful has grown rapidly since their start in 2015. The main reason for their success is likely the fact that they offer som many payment methods for their users. They do not sell Bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies themselves, instead they facilitate deals between a buyer and a seller and act as an intermediary. Their platform is userfriendly compared to LocalBitcoins, which is their main competitor in the market of facilitating deals between two parties. They charge a 1% comission fee which is low compared to the exchanges that hold currencies in stock themselves. 

A wallet is included when you register on Paxful, which is convenient for new users. Paxful has one major drawback which is the fact that they only sell Bitcoins and no other cryptocurrencies. You can however buy Bitcoins for other cryptocurrencies as long as the person you trade with accepts it as a method of payment.
