How to Connect MetaMask Wallet to OpenSea.
If you are looking to connect your MetaMask Wallet to OpenSea, please refer to our guide below. Before you get started, we recommend using the Google Chrome browser for the best and safest experience to interact with Web3, NFTs and DeFi.
Step 1: The first step to connecting Metamask to OpenSea is to download a Metamask Wallet onto your browser.
Step 2: Once your Metamask browser extension is downloaded, click on it and select 'Create a Wallet'.
Step 3: When you create your wallet, you will be asked to save your 'Secret Recovery Phrase'. Make sure you write down a copy of this on a piece of paper and keep it off your computer or other online storage systems like Google Chrome.
Step 4: Once your Secret Recovery Phrase is saved, you are now ready to visit OpenSea to connect your Metamask account. Once you have arrived on the web page, click the profile button where the red circle is below.
Step 5: The next page will then allow you to connect your Metamask Wallet to OpenSea. You can also choose another Web3 Wallet, but we recommend Metamask for the best user experience.
Step 6: Once you complete that step, you will then be officially connected to OpenSea with your Metamask Wallet and ready to trade NFTs. The Metamask Wallet will automatically create a profile for you that will allow you to store your NFTs all in one secure crypto wallet.
Why Can't I Connect Metamask to OpenSea?
If you are having problems connecting Metamask to OpenSea, we recommend you quit out of your browser, or restart your computer. The Metamask Wallet should connect to OpenSea if you follow the steps provided above.
Alternatively, you can try to use another browser like Mozilla Firefox and recover the account you created with Metamask using your Secret Recovery Phrase. If you are still having problems connecting your Metamask to OpenSea, feel free to contact us and one of our support staff will be happy to help you out.
How to Transfer NFT from OpenSea to Metamask
