Before you can Create your own npayme, you will need 3 things:

1) Get a MetaMask wallet – The npayme network is a decentralized Web3 system, so you need a MetaMask cryptocurrency wallet. Be sure to use the web browser plugin versionDownload MetaMask here.

2) Get some NPAY tokens – You need to pay 1 NPAY token to create your npayme. Get NPAY tokens here.

3) Get the USDC address for your beneficiary – Patrons donate to an npayme using USDC and Beneficiaries receive USDC. Check with your Beneficiary to make sure you have their correct USDC address to receive the donations through your npayme.

If you want to be the Beneficiary of your own npayme Campaign, you will need to get your own Beneficiary Payment Address.  Here’s how to get your address to receive USDC on Ethereum and how to get your address to receive USDC on zkSync Era.

Ready?  Let’s Create your first npayme!

Step 1:

Go to npayme.io.

Make sure you have the 3 things you need to proceed (MetaMask wallet, NPAY tokens, Beneficiary address) and then click the “Get Started” button.

Step 2:

Enter your name and explain to your followers what your npayme is all about.

Click the “Next” button to proceed.

Step 3:

Enter all the details about your Campaign and drag the sliders to adjust the Earn rates for everyone.

Click the “Next” button to proceed.

Step 4:

Enter the name of your Beneficiary (remember, you can be your own Beneficiary if you wish!) and your Beneficiary Payment Address.

Click the “Preview Campaign” button to proceed.

Step 5:

This next screen gives you a Preview of exactly what your npayme will look like.

If you see anything you want to change, click Back in the upper left of the screen.

If it all looks good to you, click the “Create Campaign” button to proceed.

Step 6:

Now you’re ready to connect your MetaMask wallet.

Click the “Sign In with MetaMask” button to proceed.

Step 7:

The MetaMask browser extension should automatically open up a small window in your web browser.  If it doesn’t, just click on the small extension icon in your web browser to manually open it.

You should now see the MetaMask popup screen in your web browser.

Click on the “Connect” button to connect your MetaMask wallet with npayme.

Step 8:

MetaMask will now ask you to Sign a transaction.

When you Sign this transaction, you will automatically Create your new npayme smart contract on the zkSync Era blockchain and pay 2 fees:

  • 1 NPAY (npayme creation fee)
  • 0.01 NPAY (blockchain gas fee)

 

In the popup MetaMask signature screen screen, scroll down until you see the Sign button become active.

Click the “Sign” button to proceed.

Step 9:

The npayme network will now set everything up for you automatically.  Just sit back and relax and watch what happens.

Next, you’ll see a “Preparing Payment” message while npayme processes your NPAY payments.

And once your NPAY payments have been processed, you will see a message telling you the smart contract is being created on the blockchain.

Step 10:

You’re done!  You’ll see a final screen with the unique URL to your newly created npayme.

Congratulations, you’re done!

Click on the Copy icon to copy your npayme’s URL to your clipboard.

Or you can click on a social media icon to automatically share your npayme’s URL to social media.

If you have any questions, please join the npayme Community Discord for live chats and to talk with the developers.  You can also submit a support ticket if you wish.
