Peer-to-peer (P2P) trading in some places is called Customer-to-Customer (C2C) trading. In this type of trading, the users purchase and sell cryptocurrencies on a P2P exchange, marketplace, or platform.
During trade executions, the P2P platform helps in ensuring the security and timely delivery of digital assets. These P2P platforms act as trade facilitators and offer platforms to both sellers and buyers to display their offers.
The answer to this question is NO. The offers you see on the P2P platform are not offered by PayBitoPro. These offers are provided by users individually and PayBitoPro serves as a platform to facilitate P2P trading.
Escrow protects all forms of online trades. Whenever an advertisement is posted, the cryptocurrency’s amount becomes automatically reserved from the Funding Wallet of the seller. So, if the seller does not release your crypto, the Customer Support agents can release those cryptos from the reserved funds.
When you are selling, always remember to say no to releasing the assets before confirming that you received the funds from the purchaser. Please also remember that some payment methods are not instant and some carry the risk of chargebacks.
