Winter for Creators: introducing credit card minting for Manifold contracts (No Code)

3 min readFeb 23, 2023

Today, we’re excited to introduce Winter checkout for Manifold contracts, the easiest way for Manifold creators to sell NFTs using credit card. By giving non-Web3 collectors a way to purchase Manifold NFTs without a wallet using their credit card, we believe this will empower thousands Web3 creators to reach new Web2 and cross-chain audiences.

🎊🎊🎊 To celebrate this launch, the first 10 Manifold projects to launch with Winter by March 31, 2023 will have 0% Winter fees for their buyers! Go to or contact to get started today. 🎊🎊🎊

🎨 Building on Manifold

Over the last few months, we’ve heard over and over again from creators that they prefer Manifold because it is a creator-first platform that empowers creative sovereignty. From contract ownership to pricing transparency to no-code tooling, Manifold has built the most complete set of NFT tooling for Web3 creators looking to launch open and closed edition NFTs. By launching credit card minting for Manifold contracts, we believe we can help thousands of Manifold creators to spend less time educating collectors on how to buy their NFTs and more time on why they should buy.

👵 An NFT checkout so easy your grandma can use

Even in the bear market, we continue to see thousands of new NFT buyers enter the space every day. And yet, conventional wisdom tells them to follow an 11-step process to buy an NFT:

  1. Create an exchange account (e.g. Coinbase, Binance)
  2. Complete KYC
  3. Buy crypto (e.g. ETH) using fiat (e.g. USD)
  4. Wait up to 5 days for your crypto to be ready to withdraw
  5. Install the MetaMask wallet extension
  6. Create a MetaMask wallet address
  7. Send crypto to your MetaMask
  8. Connect MetaMask to the minting page
  9. Double check to make sure it’s not fraud!
  10. Sign a MetaMask transaction
  11. Go on OpenSea to make sure your NFT was bought

For creators, it’s already really hard to grow an audience and create NFT collections, we believe you shouldn’t have to educate them on how to buy your NFT too. That’s why we’ve built the Winter checkout — an NFT checkout that’s so easy your grandma can use it.
