If you use our Shopify or WooCommerce 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 like your store's address on the blockchain. When it is generated, the minting wallet is linked to a secure secret phrase. You are able to use this phrase to import the wallet in whichever non-custodial wallet you prefer, such as MetaMask or Coinbase Wallet.
If you're minting on Ethereum, you'll need to top it up with ETH to cover gas fees
If you're minting on Polygon, we'll top up your wallet automatically for you
You can use it to create an account on OpenSea to show customers that it's really you
What if I want to use my own wallet to deploy contracts?
This is supported: please see Deploying contracts using your own wallet, below.
Finding your wallet address
To find your wallet address, open up the Verisart app in Shopify or WooCommerce. Go to Settings and scroll down until you find the Minting wallet section.
Secure 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 not to lose it and keep it safe.
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
How to reveal the 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.
Click 'Reveal secret phrase'
You will be prompted to send an email to the email address linked to your store
You'll be shown a code, make sure you save it as you need the code to access your secret phrase
Click on the 'Reveal' button in the email you receive
Enter the code and click 'Show secret phrase'
Write down your secret phrase in more than one safe place
What if I need access again?
If you've already used up your one-time reveal, please get in touch with us.

Topping up your minting wallet to cover gas fees
If you're minting on Ethereum, you'll need to top it up with ETH. You can top up your minting wallet by transferring ETH from another wallet or by buying within the wallet of your choice. To learn how to top up a MetaMask wallet, please refer to their 'Buy Cryptocurrency' guide.
Deploying contracts using your own wallet
It is also possible to deploy contracts using your own wallet instead of the merchant wallet. To do this, you will need to give your merchant wallet permissions to mint on your contract.
To do this you need to the following:
1. On the Verisart app, click the special Verisart.com link on the home page. This will log you into your linked Verisart account.
2. Click the Contracts tab and click Create (or if you want to use an existing Manifold contract you can choose Import).
3. Deploy the contract using your own wallet
4. Wait until the contract has been deployed on chain and then click the Grant button
5. Choose the merchant minting wallet (the one with the Shopify or WooCommerce label next to it)
6. Click Grant permission and run the transaction
7. Your contract will now appear in the Contracts drop down when you're creating a drop in Shopify or WooCommerce and can be used as normal
