step by step process of transferring NFTs to another wallet

How can you Transfer NFTs to Another Wallet?

You can easily send an NFT to another wallet in five easy steps. They include:

  • Log into your NFT account in the marketplace you have it on

    The first step is to log into the marketplace account where you have the NFT. Or it could be the wallet you want to transfer from into another wallet.

  • Select your choice of non-fungible token and click send.

    Once you’ve logged in, navigate to the digital assets or non-fungible token section. Then, select the NFT you want and click send.

  • Enter the receiver’s public wallet address (or ENS where applicable).

    The next step is to input the public address of the receiving wallet. You can also use a blockchain domain name like ENS or any other name service.

  • Pay the transaction fees. This varies depending on the type of wallet you are sending from.

    Most NFT blockchains, like Ethereum, need gas fees to validate your transaction. Ensure you have enough Ether in your wallet to complete the transaction.

Verify your transfer on etherscan.io or other blockchain explorers.

These are the basic steps to follow when transferring NFTs from one wallet to another. Although the transfer process of one wallet differs slightly from another, you’ll notice that the steps almost follow this pattern.

Visit OpenSea on your Browser and Select your Desired NFT

The first step is to log into your OpenSea account and select the particular NFT you intend to transfer. Click on send once you have selected the NFT.

Check your Transaction Status

Once you have confirmed your transfer and have made payments, head to your activity tab on OpenSea. Check to see if the just confirmed transfer is successful.

Also, check the Trust wallet to see if the NFT has arrived. If the NFT is not shared in the Trust wallet, take the following steps.

Wait Patiently for a While.

The transaction process takes, on average, between 30 – 60 minutes. Therefore, it is advisable to wait for about an hour for the database issues to be resolved.

Try using a Different Wallet.

When NFT transfers do not appear in the Trust wallet, the culprit could be the NFT or blockchain format. Using a different wallet can help in resolving this issue.

You import your Trust wallet address to another non-custodial wallet supporting the NFT format. Your 13-word phrase is required for this.
