Paxful has issued an update about bitcoin purchased using gift cards. Starting on Sunday, 29 March 2020 at 12 noon UTC (Greenwich time), all gift card escrow fees will increase from 2% to 3% except for iTunes and Google Play gift cards, which remain at 5%.

Paxful is one of the easiest ways to buy bitcoin with bank transfer or digital wallets. However, over the past few months, they have increasing fees.

* 10 – 19.99 USD = 0.0002 BTC
* 20+ USD = 0.0005 BTC
