How to see your funds in your wallet
There are two ways to view your funds in your Solana-based wallet. Currently you can use Phantom or Glow when buying on Solana using OpenSea. In the below screenshots, we’ll show Phantom.
You can view your SOL balance by heading to the wallet icon, located on the top-right of your OpenSea account.
You’ll see both your SOL balance and Solana Offer Balance, if you've made bids on items.
If you’ve recently completed a transaction and these numbers look out of date, click on the dropdown on your username and select “Refresh funds":
You can also see your funds by clicking on the wallet extension on your browser (in the below image, we show Phantom):
Navigating Explorer and SolScan
Explorer is Solana’s official blockchain explorer. When you click on links to transactions on OpenSea, you’ll land here. SolScan is a popular alternative, and may be linked from your wallet. Don’t worry – you’ll be able to get the same information in both places.
To find your SOL balance on Explorer, search your wallet address by copying it from the top of your wallet extension.
Then, go to https://explorer.solana.com/. Paste your wallet address into the search field. You’ll see your SOL balance under “Balance (SOL)”:
To find your SOL balance on SolScan, go to https://solscan.io/ and paste your wallet address into the search field. You’ll see your SOL balance under your account details:
