If you're using our Shopify App to mint NFTs, we generate a "minting wallet" for your store. NFTs are created using this wallet and transferred to your customers when they claim them from the NFT Dashboard.

What is the minting wallet for?

The minting wallet is a bit like your store's address on the blockchain.

  • If you're minting on Ethereum, you'll need to top it up

  • You can use it to create an account on OpenSea to show customers that it's really you.

Reveal your wallet's secret phrase

To transfer funds out of the wallet and configure the account on OpenSea, you'll need to access it with a secret phrase. We provide a secure facility for you to reveal your secret phrase. You'll have one opportunity to access it. You can find the "Reveal secret phrase" option in Settings.

Be aware that the email that allows you to reveal the secret phrase is sent to the email address associated with your Shopify store's account. If multiple people have access to this email, they will be able to request a reveal.

Securing your secret phrase

This secret phrase unlocks your wallet and its contents. Anyone with access to your secret phrase will be able to transfer funds and NFTs to and from your wallet. It's absolutely crucial to keep it safe. When you reveal the phrase, store it in multiple locations so you won't lose it.

  • Write it down on a piece of paper and put it in a safe place

  • Save it in an encrypted field in a password manager

  • Save it in a password-protected notes file

What if I need access again?

If you've already used up your one-time reveal, get in touch with us and we can help you retrieve the secret phrase again.
