Buying NFTs Directly From Creators
- MetaMask Wallet
- GAME balance in MetaMask Wallet
- Ethereum balance in MetaMask Wallet (for associated gas fees if you have not already acquired GAME on the Polygon/Matic sidechain)
- Browse to app.gamecredits.org. On the Home page you will see a “Featured Creators” section as well as a “Featured Collectibles” section. The featured collectibles are some of those offered for sale by creators on the Portal.
- Before attempting to make a purchase, it is a good idea to deposit your GAME balance from the Ethereum mainnet to the Polygon/Matic sidechain. Scroll down the home page and a section with your balances is visible. Click “Deposit” on the mainnet balance to deposit it to the sidechain. This will incur an Ethereum gas fee. If you do not deposit to the sidechain before making a purchase, you will be prompted to do so during the purchase process.
- For a more detailed look, click the “Rewards” section in the left hand pane. All creators on the Portal are visible from here with optional sorting capabilities at the top of the page.
- Click on a specific creator to see the NFTs they offer. Here we see NFTs for sale from The DArtCo. Click the “Buy” button on the NFT you would like to purchase.
- If you do not have enough funds to purchase the NFT a warning will appear.
- Assuming you have enough GAME to make the purchase click the “Buy” button.
- If you have not already deposited your GAME to the Polygon/Matic sidechain you will be prompted to do so now.
- Click “Confirm”
- Enter the quantity of GAME you would like to deposit from Ethereum mainnet to the Polygon/Matic sidechain then click “Deposit.” You will be prompted by MetaMask to confirm the transaction. Once the deposit is complete you will be able to purchase NFTs from your favorite creators on the Portal.
