With the “Make offer” function, you can offer the NFT owner a price you’re willing to pay for the artwork. Here is how it works.

Step 1: Click “Make offer

Step 2: Input your offer:

Price: The price you are willing to pay for the item.

Payment token: You can choose to pay by multiple tokens.

Quantity: The number of NFT.

Total: Total amount you will pay

Offer expiration: Time limit of the offer, ranging from 3 days to 15 days. After the expiration date, if your offer isn’t approved by the owner, it will be canceled.

Step 3: Select “Make offer” and choose “Confirm” on your MetaMask if you use an external wallet. You can follow your offer on the “My Collectibles” tab “My offer”.

Note 1:

When you Make offer using BNB as the currency, the BNB will be deducted from your wallet temporarily to go into a contract. You can get it back anytime by removing the offer. In case the seller doesn’t accept your offer and it expires, you will have to manually remove the offer to send back the BNB to your wallet.

When your offer expires, it will show a tag “Offer Expired” in the “Bidding” tab.

Note 2:

If you Make offer using other tokens, the money will only be deducted from your wallet after the seller accepts your offer.

If the balance in your wallet is less than the amount required for your offer, the offer will be partially accepted within the balance of the bidding token available in your wallet. For example if you offer to buy 5 copies of an NFT at price 20USDT while you have only 70USDT in your wallet, then only maximum 3 copies can be accepted.
