Custom contracts are available on our Individual Premium and Pro plans and all our Business plans (compare plans here).
A custom contract provides one home for your NFTs or a specific project and establishes direct provenance from you to the collector. Each NFT will be minted with your branded token and you can configure your own royalties in OpenSea.
The gas fees for deploying your own custom contract generally cost around 0.2 - 0.5 ETH. Please note the price of deploying a custom contract can vary significantly due to gas fees fluctuating depending on the amount of activity on the blockchain at the time. We recommend checking gas fees before deploying the contract.
1. On your dashboard, click on the 'Contracts' tab
2. Click on 'Create'
3. Select the blockchain
This will be the the chain on which you want to create the contract on.
4. Enter your Contract Name
This will be the name of your contract that appears on Etherscan and marketplaces.
5. Enter a contract symbol
This is your token identifier metadata to help you identify your NFT in Etherscan.
Note: You will not be able to change these 2 fields after your contract has been created on the blockchain.
These don’t need to be unique, someone can use the same name and contract symbol as your contract.
6. Add a description
Additional context to help you identify your custom contract. This information is not included on the blockchain.
7. Click ‘Create’
8. You’ll need to confirm the transaction in MetaMask
Creating a Polygon custom contract: The deployment fee is covered by Verisart
Creating an Ethereum smart contract: You’ll need to pay the transaction fee for the deployment of the contract
Once the transaction has been confirmed you’ll see your new custom contract appear in the minting form, ready for you to mint from!
Alternatively, you can also create custom contracts in the Minting form.
1. In the Minting form, under ‘Contract’, select ‘Custom contract’
The next steps would be the same as from Step No.4 from above.
