A Step-by-Step Guide to Buying an NFT
How do I buy an NFT
You can bid on an NFT using a debit/credit card or Ether.
Getting Ready to Bid
Sign into your LiveArt Account. To bid on NFTs on LiveArt, you can either do so through cash bidding or with a cryptocurrency wallet.
Unlike Ethereum, cash bidding does not take place over the Ethereum network and is therefore usually faster as a result. You do not need to create a metamask wallet to bid with a credit card. If you are the winner of the NFT, LiveArt supplies you with a wallet address so that you may access the work in the “My Acquisitions” tab on the LiveArt Market platform. If you obtain a Metamask wallet later, you can transfer your NFT to your personal Metamask wallets.
Step One: Place Your Bid
Put in your desired bid amount and press “Place Bid”
Step Two: Enter Credit Card Information
A pop-up window will appear and will ask you for your credit card information. Once you put in your credit card information, press “Place Bid.“ We will place a pending transaction on your debit/credit card with the amount you have placed to bid. If you are outbid, the funds are returned to your account immediately.
Step Three: Bid Confirmation
The product page will notify you if the bid is with you or if you have been outbid and need to resubmit.
Ethereum Network Bidding
In order to place a bid using an Ethereum cryptocurrency, you must first have a crypto wallet installed on your browser and connected to our website. MetaMask and Coinbase are recommended digital wallets that specifically support Ethereum. If you would like a MetaMask wallet you can install one here. To install Coinbase you can install one here. Once you have created your wallet, you can learn how to fund it here.
Step One: Connect Your Wallet
You can connect your wallet at the upper right corner. Enter your password to log-in and accept the prompt on the signature request from your digital wallet. Once you do so you will have the ability to place a bid.
Step Two: Place Your Bid
Once you are connected to MetaMask or Coinbase, put in your desired bid amount in the bidding box and press ”Place Bid”.
Step Three: Bid Confirmation
After you have pressed “Place Bid”, a pop-up will appear. Toggle to “Ether”, confirm the desired bid amount, and press “Place Bid” once again. A MetaMask extension window will appear and ask you to confirm the transaction, along with displaying the gas fees involved. Then, the bid will process on the blockchain. This may take several minutes due to the traffic on the Ethereum network. Unfortunately, we cannot speed up this process. We suggest that when bidding with Ethereum, you place your bid as early as possible to ensure that your bid is processed on the blockchain before the close of the auction.
Step Four: Bid Confirmation
Once the transaction successfully goes through, we will confirm that the bid is with you. If you are outbid, your funds will be returned to you immediately. If you have been outbid, your digital wallet will display an error message and deny the transaction and our product page will notify you to place another bid.
When placing a bid on the Ethereum network, there is a fee charged for processing a transaction on the network. These gas fees vary in price due to network congestion and the size of the transaction.
Funding your wallet
With MetaMask to fund your wallet, press the ”Buy” button directly underneath the displayed amount of Ether available to you. You can easily fund your wallet with direct deposit or Apple pay through the ”Direct deposit” option. With a Coinbase wallet, you can also set up a Coinbase account that allows you to store, buy, and sell cryptocurrency. Go to Coinbase and click ”Get Started” to set up your account. Verify your identity and connect a bank account or debit card. Once you have set up an account you can purchase Ether. Connecting a debit card will allow you to bid immediately, while using a bank account may take up to 15 days to process.
