Offers using SOL are made from your offer balance.
When you make an offer on an item that’s not for sale, you’ll see these funds listed as “Solana Offer balance” in the wallet sidebar on your OpenSea account. You may not see them in your Solana wallet extension, but this doesn’t mean that your funds were lost!
If your bid is accepted, the funds in your offer balance will go to the seller. If the offer isn’t accepted, or if it’s canceled, the money stays in offer balance until you remove it.
Here’s what you’ll see when you make an offer on a Solana item on OpenSea:
After you’ve made the offer, you’ll see your SOL Offer balance in your sidebar reflecting the sum of all the offers you’ve made.
To move the funds out of offer balance, click on the three dots to the right of “SOL offer balance” to withdraw.
You’ll then be able to type in the amount of SOL you’d like to withdraw. When you’re done, click Convert tokens, which will prompt a signature request in your wallet. After approving the request, your tokens will reappear under regular SOL in your wallet, ready to buy other Solana NFTs!
Make sure to keep enough SOL in your offer balance to cover your active offers. You can always see your pending offers in your Offers made tab. Whichever offer is fulfilled first is the one that will reduce your Offer Balance. If you don’t have enough in your Offer balance to cover any offers, they won’t be able to be fulfilled.
