When Are Service Fees Charged?

Service fees are charged only when a customer purchases an NFT and it is minted. In other words, you won't incur any upfront costs for publishing a Collection to your store.


When Do NFTs Get Minted?

An NFT is only minted after it has been purchased by a customer. This is known as "lazy minting" and prevents you from paying to mint all of your collection upfront. You also mean won't have to pay for unsold NFTs, as they are only minted when they are purchased.

What Happens If I Don't Sell Through the Total Supply?

If you end your mint before selling through the total supply of your Collection, the total supply will be updated to the total number of NFTs minted.

For example, if your total supply was 100 but you decided to end the mint after only selling 60, the total supply will be changed to 60 - and you'll only be charged for what you sell.

How Do Customers Pay for NFTs?

Customers can purchase NFTs just like they would any other product in your store. This means they could pay via fiat currency (debit card, credit card, etc.), or even crypto depending on what payment processor you have set up in Shopify.
