Primary Drops on OpenSea allow you to be the first in line to buy an item the moment it’s minted. OpenSea supports artists and creators by providing a platform for drops to happen directly on OpenSea.
Each drop has a unique landing page where you can see the following information:
- Drop name
- Creator name
- Links to the creator’s social media
- The mint schedule
- A sample gallery of the NFTs that will be minted
You can also sign up to receive an email reminder about the mint event or add the mint event to your calendar, including the presale.
Each creator who holds a Primary Drop on OpenSea determines the unique eligibility for presale, and the project page will contain the most up-to-date information on how to participate in any presale.
Once you’ve minted an item, it may take a moment for the image to be revealed. When this happens, this is usually an indication that the metadata needs to be refreshed.
To refresh your metadata on OpenSea, navigate to your item page and click the Refresh metadata button in the upper right corner.
You’ll then see the message “We’ve queued this item for an update!” on the bottom of the page.
Some collections also delay the reveal of items until a specific date. In this situation, you’ll need to check with the NFT collection for information on when the image will be revealed.
If your mint failed, it’s possible that the drop has completed and no more NFTs are available. There are a limited number of items available for mint, and the mints may run out during your transaction. When this occurs, you’ll still pay the transaction gas fee.
