Effective July 10, 2023 Tellie will be sunsetting our beta site builder and web3 tools. In the lead-up to the sunset, the ability to create new Drops, mint and sell NFTs will be suspended no later than Friday, April 7.
We are so grateful for your early enthusiasm for what we built, and are looking forward to sharing our next application with you. We've built it based on all our learnings from Tellie so far, and believe that what we will building will make it easier for you to unlock more value from your community.
Please read the following FAQs for more information on how to export your site data, available features, and recommended alternatives.
Q: What will happen to my NFTs?
A: You own your NFTs. You can find them any time in the wallet you minted them to. If you need support, contact us.
Q: What happens to my NFTs listed for sale on Tellie?
A: If you have an NFT listed for sale on Tellie, the sales listing will be cancelled. As an alternative, you can list your NFTs for sale on any marketplace that is compatible with the Polygon blockchain, such as Opensea or Rarible.
Q: What happens to the NFTs I minted?
A: Any NFTs you've minted will stay with your wallet. The NFTs are yours as long as you retain access to the wallet you used to mint them. If the wallet is lost, the NFTs are lost.
Q: Are there any gasless minting and gating options?
A: We recommend checking out Zero Code or NiftyKit for gasless minting. Our top-pick for no-code token-gated websites is Bonfire. See below for our complete list of recommendations.
Q: How can I find the contract address to my NFT?
A: You can find the contract address in your Tellie Dashboard. Just click on the NFT you would like to view the contract address and you should be able to locate the address. You can also load the NFT on Tellie and should see a link to the contract address:
