Overview: Any NFT page on Tellie includes a Buy Now button. The page also includes details like any unlockable content associated with the NFT, Contract Address, Token ID, the mint date, a link to Polygon scan and more. Coming soon, we will offer credit card check out, and the ability to purchase an NFT directly from a Token Gated page. 🥳
🚨 Keep in mind, buying with an external wallet means that you are the holder of the NFT. The NFT will be held in your crypto wallet, not in your Tellie Account. This means the Tellie team cannot help you if you lose access to your NFT in the event that something happens to your wallet.
Tellie NFTs are minted on the energy efficient Polygon blockchain. In order to purchase an NFT on Tellie you will need a crypto wallet, and enough MATIC (Polygon's native cryptocurrency) in your wallet to cover the cost of the NFT as well as the small amount of gas fees applied by the network as you check out.
- Crypto Wallet: If you don't have a wallet, or are new to crypto wallets we recommend Coinbase Wallet for ease of use. You will also need to make sure that your wallet is connected to the Polygon network. See more recommendations and read our wallet set-up guide.
- MATIC (cryptocurrency): If you don't currently hold MATIC, you can either convert from a crypto you already hold, or purchase some. You can easily purchase MATIC directly via any of the Wallet apps we recommend (again, we recommend Coinbase Wallet). It does take some time and some set-up, so we recommend doing this in advance.
💡 When you are making your purchase, make sure to buy enough—Take into account the variations in USD to MATIC pricing, and also some extra money to cover gas fees (Polygon fees are usually just a few cents).
More information on acquiring MATIC.
From any NFT page: Click the 'Buy Now' button.
If you cannot find a creator's NFTs, click the Menu on the upper right and select 'Collections'. From there, you can click on a Collection, and browse NFTs.
Once you click on 'Buy Now', you will then see the NFT you are purchasing and asked to either create an account or 'Sign in'. 🙌🏼
Once signed in, you will see the price of the NFT in MATIC, you will then click on 'Connect Wallet'.
🦊 Connect your wallet 🙌🏼
✅ Once your wallet is connected, preview all the information again. Then click on 'Complete Purchase'.🧾
After you hit 'Complete Purchase', you will be prompted via your wallet to confirm the transaction. 🌐 Once you confirm it, you will see one of three outcomes.
1: Your transaction failed. This can be due to network traffic, insufficient MATIC to cover the NFT purchase price or gas fees, or the transaction wasn't confirmed on time. 🚨
If you do have enough MATIC in your wallet, we recommend just trying again.
2: Your transaction is processing. Blockchain transactions can take a few minutes. While you wait you can just hang tight, or optionally click on 'View on Polygonscan' to see when the transaction is completed.⏱
3: The NFT sold out. 🚨
Oh man. Didn't get there fast enough!
Click back through a Creator's Collections to see if there are any other NFTs you'd like to purchase, or go to the token gated page you are trying to unlock and see if there is another NFT that unlocks that page.
Tip: Some pages are locked with a Collection rather than a single NFT, and you can buy any NFT in that collection to unlock a page.
Once you are able to successfully purchase the NFT you should see the 'Success' pop up at the bottom of the page. Congratulations on your purchase! 🎉🥳.
You will get an email confirming your transaction, and you can find your Receipt any time from your Tellie Dashboard.

***Disclaimer: The option to purchase with a credit card will be available at a later date.***
