Why use Paper?

Paper's focus is to deliver the best NFT checkout experience: a simple premise with deep complexity abstracted away from you and your buyers.

Here's a rundown what Paper handles for you:

πŸ’΅ Multiple payment options

Paper makes your NFT accessible to the widest audience by accepting:

  • Credit cards, debit cards, Apple Pay, Google Pay, and iDEAL (more to come!)
  • Payment in ETH for NFTs
  • Native minting

Paper accepts payments from all 50 US states and most countries.

😍 NFT-first wallets

An optional Paper wallet is created during checkout for buyers without crypto experience. They only need to provide their email--no technical knowledge is required! There's no app or browser extension to download.

This non-custodial wallet can be exported at any time.

πŸ“„ Bring your own contract

Bring the contract you already have! Paper supports custom smart contracts on many standards including ERC-721a, ERC-721b, ERC-1155. See πŸ“„ Contract Registration for more details.

βš–οΈ Marketplace and auctions support

Paper is able to call your marketplace contract to facilitate sales where funds are sent to a user on your platform ("secondary sales"). Auctions are supported too!

πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™€οΈ Fraud prevention & chargeback protection

Paper deters bots and fraudulent activity by using multiple data points about the buyer's device, network, behavior, payment, and more. Only high-risk buyers will need to verify their identity with an ID and selfie.

We protect you from these concerns by offering full chargeback protection.

πŸ“¦ Reliable NFT Delivery

Paper manages a fleet of funded crypto wallets to handle blockchain transactions at scale. Queues are semi-automated to monitor for stuck transactions, failed on-chain calls, and low funds. Our engineering team regularly resolves incomplete transactions.

πŸš€ Conversion-optimized UX

Our checkout flow accounts for many cases to provide buyers a seamless experience with minimal steps:

  • Does the buyer need a crypto wallet or do they already have one?
  • Do they exhibit bot-like or suspicious behavior?
  • Do they have enough tokens to mint natively?
  • Is your user trying to purchase more than one NFT?
  • Is your user allowlisted to purchase?
  • Are there enough NFTs remaining to purchase?

πŸͺ Webhooks & custom metadata

Configure webhooks to notify your backend when payments and transfers are completed. Webhooks allow you to unlock NFT-gated utilities, send customized emails, and more.

Provide custom metadata to tag purchases with added information.

πŸ“Š Analytics

View purchases to your checkouts including breakdowns by payment method and wallet. Export your data with additional details including buyer location, transaction hash, conversion rate, and custom metadata.

Get visibility into failed transactions to speed up debugging and resolve support questions.
