What is an Allowlist?

An allowlist, also known as a whitelist, is a list of selected wallet addresses that give certain community members early access to mint from your collection. Early access can also involve a free or cheaper price than when the mint is available to the public.

To create your allowlist, you can access our resource docs here.


You can follow our step-by-step guide below for creating an allowlist.

What do you need to create your Allowlist?

To begin setting up your allowlist, you must have the following:

  • A live ERC721 collection (Edition or Drop). You can use our create tool here if you do not yet have a collection.

    ** Allowlists are NOT available on Multi-Edition collections

  • A presale. You are required to have a presale to attach your allowlist too. It is important to note that allowlists do NOT apply to public sales.

  • Your wallet addresses or ENS names that you intend to have as part of your allowlist.

Create your Allowlist

To begin, you'll need to access the "Manage collection" section. There are two way's that you can access your collection's settings:

  1. The first is to navigate to the "Your Collections" page and select the collection you want to manage. A link to that page can be found here.

  2. The second is to navigate from your collections mint page. To do this, select your wallet address/ENS name in the top right corner, then select "Manage Collection".

  3. From here, follow through to the top tab that says “Allowlist”. This will be where you're able to begin creating your allowlist.

  4. Click the “Add items” button to add your selected wallet addresses.

  5. Adding your selected addresses can be done in two separate ways:

    1. Manual Entry

    2. CSV Upload

Manual Entry

The first is through “Manual entry”, which will require you to add the wallet addresses manually and/or ens names into the text-entry box.

  • Along with your selected addresses, you will be prompted to select a price for the members added to the allowlist. This can be a different price than you use for the public mint.

  • The next step is to limit how many NFTs each address will be allowed to mint.

CSV Upload

The second option to create your allowlist is to upload a file using the “CSV Upload” option. This .csv file should specify the wallet address and/or ens name, their set mint price and their mint limit.

Review and Save your Allowlist

  1. Once your .csv file has successfully loaded, you can choose to either add these items to your existing list or delete and replace all the existing items on the list.

  2. Review your uploaded list before adding the items to your allowlist.

  3. To finalise your allowlist, you must save this information onchain by clicking the “Save onchain” button at the bottom of the page. This will prompt you to accept a gas fee, and once the transaction is completed, your allowlist will be set.

**Reminder: Allowlists do not apply to public sales
