Collections: create and edit

How can I create a collection on SolSea?

To create a collection first create a profile on SolSea, put some SOL in your wallet (we recommend at least 0.5 SOL for a smoother experience), go to Create Collection that can be found on the left sidebar and follow the steps in the form. You can access further details and explanations by hovering your mouse over the blue question mark icon on the Create Collection page (see example below):

Note that once a collection is created, the Title and Short Description cannot be edited.

How can I make my collection visible?

When you're ready to make your collection public and therefore visible to other users on SolSea, you can do so by navigating to My Collections in the left sidebar menu. Find the collection you wish to make visible, then select "Publish" in the three dots menu at the bottom right corner of the collection card. Once you've done that, your collection will be published and visible to everyone on SolSea.

Can I batch-mint a collection on SolSea?

Batch minting is not currently available, but this feature is planned for a future platform update.

What is batch minting and how is it different from “creating a collection” on SolSea?

Batch minting refers to minting (for example) 2,000 NFTs at once using a program like Candy Machine. Meanwhile, creating a collection on SolSea creates a "folder" in which you can then mint NFTs via SolSea's own minter one by one.

How can I edit my collection?

If you are logged in to your account on SolSea, you can access your created collections in My Collections in the left sidebar. Find the collection you wish to edit and click on the three dots in the bottom right corner of the Collection card. You will find the option to edit your collection there.

Note that you can edit all information and files except the collection’s Title and Short Description, as these details are written directly on the blockchain upon creation.

Can I start a collection with a few NFTs and then add more later?

Yes, you can add NFTs later, but keep in mind that you have to create a collection first before you start minting NFTs on SolSea.

Can I mint my collection externally and have my collection listed on SolSea?

Yes, you can mint your collection externally (e.g. using Candy Machine) and list it on SolSea.

To list your NFTs on SolSea after minting your collection elsewhere, you have to create a collection on SolSea (a "folder" where your NFTs will be "imported" when you list them for sale), and apply for verification. Until your collection is verified on SolSea, users will be able to list NFTs, but trading will be disabled.

Read how to apply for the verification of your collection in the "Collection Verification" section of the FAQs.

Why are my NFTs not showing up in my collection?

If an NFT is reported it will not be visible in a collection or otherwise.
