OpenSea allows artists to easily upload NFT artwork and sell on their platform.
Create a collection
This is basically like setting up a social media profile. You add your name, basic information, profile images. You’ve got this part! 👊
In order to create your first NFT, hit ‘Add New Item’. From here you can upload an image/video/audio file and enter the name of the NFT.
Once you’re happy, click the create button and sign the message in your MetaMask wallet. There’s no charge for creating NFTs on OpenSea at the moment. Many other similar sites are charging what is called a ‘gas fee’ (transaction costs) but at the time of writing OpenSea is still FOC to add, they only charge to sell.
Listing your items for sale
To list your NFTs, head to asset page and press the sell button. From here you can set your price, it can be fixed or auctioned, similar to eBay. You can also set a commission fee, this is ensuring you get a percentage of any future sales. When you’re happy, hit post.
This is where Gas Fees are incurred. The price can vary based on time of the day and demand on the system, at the moment charges range from $40-$100.
OpenSea also take 2.5% of any sale you make. This is much lower than most other NFT marketplace websites.
Wait for approval
A member of the OpenSea team will look over your work, and once happy you will be emailed to tell you your work has been published. This usually doesn’t take too long but be prepared to wait for up to 48 hours.
