Where do I get started if I’ve never created a drop before?

We recommend you get started by reviewing the Drops section of our Help Center, beginning with Drops on OpenSea.

Do I need to submit an application to create a drop?

Drops is now open access. You no longer need to submit an application to create a drop.

How much does it cost to deploy my own contract on OpenSea?

The gas fee to deploy your own contract using SeaDrop depends on whether you use a proxy or standard contract. With a proxy contract, we estimate ~90% savings on gas fees compared to a standard contract.

For creators expecting a large volume of transactions on their collection -- you may prefer to use the standard contract since the community may collectively end up paying more in gas fees with a proxy contract.

Where can I get answers to questions about preparing my drop’s metadata?

To learn more about setting up your drop’s metadata, visit our Developer Docs.

Will I be able to use my own contract?

Yes, if your contract conforms to the ERC721SeaDrop contract standard you can use it to create a drop on OpenSea.

What will my landing page look like?

Drops pages on OpenSea are intended to be rich, storytelling surfaces. These landing pages are customizable and provide space for key messaging and project information (like minting schedules, a countdown clock, NFT gallery & roadmaps) as well as images and videos. To see some examples of previous drop experiences, explore the drop pages for omgkirby, CLOUDMACHINE, Probably a Label, and Anthony Hopkins.

What is OpenSea’s fee for self-serve drops tooling?

OpenSea will receive 10% of the sale price for each NFT minted in your drop. Changing this value will make your drop ineligible to show on OpenSea.

Will my drop automatically be added to OpenSea's drop calendar?

No, similar to being featured on OpenSea's homepage we can't guarantee that all drops will be added to OpenSea's drop calendar.
