SELLING YOUR ARTWORK ON OPENSEA, THE ULTIMATE NFT MARKETPLACE

  1. Before we even begin with OpenSea, the first thing we need to do is set up our Crypto Wallet. As recommended by OpenSea, MetaMask is the wallet to go for. You can easily have it set up by installing the Google Chrome extension and following the instructions accordingly.
  2. After your wallet is all set up, it is time to fill it up with OpenSea’s cryptocurrency of choice, Ethereum. Please take your time researching and looking for authorized and reputable sellers on the internet to buy your Ethereum. Once you have acquired a sum of the currency, wait for it to be reflected in your MetaMask wallet and then head to the homepage of OpenSea.
  3. Just like any online marketplace, in order to start selling on the platform you will have set up your account. It is pretty straightforward to create your account at OpenSea, once you click on the profile icon in the top right corner of the homepage. Just follow the instructions and get your OpenSea profile linked to your wallet.
  4. Once your profile is all set up, it is time to start minting your first NFT. You will have to click on the Create option at the top of your profile page and then select My Collections. Then click Create on the Create New Collection drop down menu and enter the details and information about the NFT or the collection of NFTs you will be minting soon. You will be able to upload images and customize how your collection will be presented to potential buyers.
  5. Once you have set up your collection, it is time to create your first NFT. All you will have to do is click on Add New Item in your Collection menu and fill out the required fields asking for details on the NFT. What I have learned is that the more information and details you provide about your artwork, the more traction and attention it gets on OpenSea, so take your time here. After doing all that, hit Create and voila! Your first NFT has been created.
  6. Now that you have created your NFT, it is time have it listed for selling to attract the attention of Crypto art collectors. To list your NFT, simply go to the public facing asset and click Sell. Then, select if you want it to be a fixed-price listing or auction and then set your price. This is where you will have to pay something called the gas fee which is simply the transaction fees of minting your NFT on the Ethereum blockchain. This fee is borne by both the buyer and the seller. The gas fee fluctuates and is currently expensive as there is congestion on the Ethereum blockchain. Once you are happy with your listing, you can select Post Your Listing and follow the instructions to your wallet. After doing that, your NFT is now out on OpenSea and ready to be bought by a collector.
