Welcome to the exciting world of NFTs on Verisart! Below you will find a practical, step-by-step guide to creating NFTs on Verisart as well as a tutorial video.
1. From your dashboard, click on “Mint NFT” to access the minting form
2. If you haven’t already, connect your wallet
You’ll need a MetMask wallet, if you don’t have one, read our instructions here for how to set one up.
3. Select the blockchain you are minting on
You can choose to mint your NFT on Polygon or Ethereum. Learn about the differences between Ethereum and Polygon here.
You may need to switch to the correct network before minting, just follow the instructions on the notification that pops up.
Minting on Polygon: Verisart covers the minting costs if you are on a paid plan so you won’t need to purchase any cryptocurrency.
Minting on Ethereum: You will need to cover the gas fees yourself and you’ll need enough ETH in your wallet to complete the minting.
4. Select the contract you are minting on
We offer creators the choice to mint on the Verisart contract or create their own custom contract.
The Verisart Contract is managed by Verisart and other creators can also mint NFTs on this contract.
Only available on our Individual Premium and Pro plans and all our Business plans (compare plans here).
Deploying your own custom contract provides one home for all your NFTs or a specific project and a direct provenance from you to your collector. Each NFT will be minted with your branded token and you can configure your own royalties in OpenSea.
5. Add yourself as a creator
If this is your first time minting or certifying a work, we’ll ask you to add yourself as a creator. You’ll need to verify your identity, add some information about yourself and provide a signature image.
6. Upload your assets and add the NFT metadata
Upload your file, add the NFT title, year of production, description and tags.
If your NFT is a video, we suggest a thumbnail but you can choose to change it.
7. Set royalties
With NFTs minted on Verisart, you can receive royalties from OpenSea, Rarible and other EIP-2981 standard compatible platforms.
Set the % of royalties you would like to receive as well as the wallet address they should be sent to.
How you set up royalties will depend on which contract you are minting from. Read our full guide to NFT royalties.
8. Collector rewards
Collector rewards provide your collectors with exclusive access to files or specific instructions. It’s a great way of saying thank you and connecting with collectors.
The file becomes visible to the collector through the certificate once they have connected their MetaMask wallet to Verisart. Learn more about collector rewards here.
Available on our Individual Premium and Pro plans and all our Business plans (compare plans here).
Customize your certificate with your own branding. Find out more about certificate customization here.
10. Additional files & notes
The Verisart certificate gives you the space to the story of your work. Provide additional files and notes to share more context about work and yourself as a creator.
Hit the 'Mint' button when you're ready.
Note: Once you've minted, the NFT metadata can't be changed, make sure you carefully review all the information you've provided.
Pay the gas fees and sign the transaction
Minting on Polygon: Verisart covers the costs so you don’t need to worry about buying cryptocurrencies.
Minting on Ethereum: You’ll need enough ETH in your wallet to cover the gas fees.
