👀 enter minting fees?
We believe all artists should have the possibility to mint their NFTs, no matter their income. Therefore, enter take no fees or cuts of any transactions done in $nftart. When listing your NFTs in $nftart, the only fee you need to consider is the BSC gas fee, that is usually less than $1.

💡 A little note on split royalties
You can only split royalties with wallets that are connected to the enter ecosystem.
If the wallet you would like to split with is BSC compatible, you can simply connect it to enter.art. If you are planning a charity drop with a verified charity wallet, or another partner outside the ecosystem, please contact enter.help so we can help you set it up in our systems.
Mint your art on the blockchain!
In the Created by me tab in your account, you can find your newly created NFT. Now all that’s left to do, is clicking the drop-down menu and click mint. Make sure that you are happy with your NFT, preview and description before minting; afterwards there is no going back!
Always make sure to keep your wallet open to approve all transactions during the process.
Tips & Troubleshooting
1. The MetaMask extension for Google Chrome is every NFT creator's best friend! Pin it to your taskbar for the easiest minting experience. This will allow you to sign transactions directly in the browser you are minting NFTs from.
Already using another wallet? Take your funds with you by importing your seed phrase to MetaMask. See MetaMask's own guide here.
2. Always make sure you have a tiny amount of Smart Chain BNB in your wallet.
3. If you are using a mobile wallet, make sure to keep the app open and sign all transactions throughout the process. The Trust Wallet DApp browser is not supported, use Chrome or Safari if you need to mint from a mobile device.
4. Stuck on step 3? As long as you have successfully signed the transactions in your wallet, chances are that you have successfully minted even though it does not show yet. This is usually due to high traffic, but nothing to worry about.
Wait it out for a bit, and contact enter.help by submitting a ticket if the NFT does not show up after a couple of hours. You can also check your transaction history on BscScan to see if a transaction has been successfully made.
