After hours of intensive work creating an NFT artwork, we searched for a way to launch it live without paying the gas fee.
Most NFT marketplaces, like Opensea, Rarible, SuperRare, users are required to pay a gas fee for buying and selling NFTs and for minting an NFT. The gas fee is intended to reduce spam on the network and is usually required to successfully conduct a transaction on Ethereum.
We finally came across Mintable, a site that allows the sale of NFTs without paying gas fee.
Find out how below:
6 Easy Steps to Sell NFTs without Paying Gas Fee on Mintable
Mintable allows you to sell your first 50 NFTs without paying any gas fees. To list your first NFT online, follow these steps:
Step 1: Creating Your Mintable Account
To begin selling, you need a Mintable account. Simply visit Mintable and click on Create Account
Add credentials like username, email address, and a safe password.
Once you create and verify your account, go back to the home screen and log in.
Step 2: Create a Cryptocurrency Wallet
Choose any popular wallet that supports Ethereum. We recommend MetaMask because it’s the most popular choice.
To install MetaMask, go to https://metamask.io/download.html and choose your browser or OS platform.
After downloading the extension, add it to your browser, and create your wallet clicking on First Steps.
Enter credentials like email address, name and a unique password to create the wallet.
After that, you’ll receive a secret code that can be used to restore your wallet in future.
Step 3: Connecting MetaMask Wallet to the Mintable Account
Click on Connect Wallet on the home screen.
When an extension window opens up, log in with your credentials or choose the wallet you’d like to connect to.
Step 4: Time to Mint Our First NFT
Click on the Mint an Item button to start the process.
Select create a new item.
On the top corner of this window, there are two options: advanced and easy.
The advanced option will explain two different types of listings, one without a gas fee and the other with gas fee.
In this case, we want to select no gas fees option.
To move onto the next step, click on create a new item.
Step 5: Creating NFT Listing & Filling Details About it
While creating a listing, mention what type of item it is. Assuming the item is an artwork, select art.
Other details include a title, subtitle, description, and a nice photo of the NFT.
Step 6: Select Payment Options
There are three payment options: fixed price, auction and auction with buy now.
Each option is easy to choose. You just need to add details like the fixed price, starting bid, bid length, and buy now price.
That’s it! Now hit the List This Item button.
Finally, the NFT is now live and ready to be sold. Once it’s live, the listing will look something like this:
Is it Even Possible to Sell An NFT on Mintable?
On premium platforms, artists list their NFT with an intent to sell. After all, they’re paying the gas fee and they expect a return.
On free sites like Mintable, people play around and that turns off buyers. However, it doesn’t matter much.
In the end, we have to market and build authority for our NFT shop.
