So now that you’ve already downloaded MetaMask to your phone or added it as a desktop browser extension, you’ll be able to complete your membership payment here using Matic on Polygon Mainnet.

So let’s start with setting up your MetaMask wallet in case you haven’t yet done so. Then we’ll go over the purchasing of Matic on Polygon Mainnet to complete your membership payment here on Findom App.

Before we go further, let’s make sure that you have your MetaMask wallet set up and Polygon Mainnet activated.

Once open, you’ll see the “Welcome to MetaMask” screen.

From here, click on the “Get started” button:

From here, you’ll be asked to create a password:

Next, you’ll need to set up your wallet.

If you’re advanced and familiar with DEX Wallet’s and you want to import and existing wallet, you can go ahead and do that if you’d like.

However, if you’re newer, and for the purposes of this guide, we’re going to create a new wallet.

So with that, let’s click on the “Create a new wallet” button:

From here, you’ll be asked to save your recovery phrase:

This is standard procedure when setting up wallets like this. Simply follow the instructions to save your recovery phrase. First start by clicking the “Start” button, which will take you to the “Secure your wallet” screen:

A lot of this is just standard procedure, so you can go on ahead and click the “Start” button when you’re ready:

It might ask you to confirm your password once again:

You’ll then be told to write down your recovery phrase:

Then click the “View” button to get your recovery phrase.

Once you’ve gotten and written down your recovery phrase, it will then ask you to confirm it by entering it in a certain order on the next screen:

Once confirmed, you’ll end up on the Congratulations screen:

From here, click the “Done” button.

It might ask you if you want to automatically check for security updates:

This is up to you, if you have any doubts you can simply click “No thanks” and move on.

This will take you to your wallet home screen:

So from here, let’s enable and switch to Polygon network and buy some Matic!

First you’ll need to have enough Matic in your account + a little bit extra for fees to cover the price of membership.

So in this example, we’ll simply choose the One Month Membership.

Since the One Month Membership is $20, you’ll want to have $22 in Polygon/Matic in your MetaMask account. When dealing with cryptocurrency payments, we typically recommend buying an extra $5 worth to cover fees (so for other cryptos for a one month membership we usually recommend having $25 worth in your account). However with Matic on Polygon Mainnet, which is what we will be demonstrating here, the fees are so low, that for this example we’ll just add an extra $2 for fees, but generally speaking the fees are going to be even less than that.

First, start on your MetaMask home screen:

Most likely it will be set to Ethereum Network by default. Since we’re going to be buying Matic on Polygon Mainnet, let’s switch the network to Polygon.

To do this, click the top dropdown that says “Ethereum Main Net.”

This will take you to the “Select a network” screen:

From here, click the “Add Network” button at the bottom of the screen.

This will take you to the list of available networks:

Towards the bottom, you’ll see Polygon Mainnet. Click “Add” next to Polygon Mainnet. This will take you to the Polygon Mainnet addition screen:

Click the blue “Approve” button to approve the addition of Polygon Mainnet to your MetaMask wallet.

When finished, you will get confirmation that the New network (Polygon Mainnet Network) was added:

From here, click the blue “Switch to network” button.

This will take you to the Polygon Mainnet switch confirmation screen:

From here, click the blue “Got it” button. This will take you back to your MetaMask wallet, except now you will be on Polygon Mainnet. Now you’re ready to buy Matic on Polygon Mainnet:

Start by clicking the blue “Buy MATIC” button towards the bottom of your screen. This will take you to the next screen:

From here, click the blue “Get started” button to get started.

So at this point, you will need to select your region.

We’re going to continue this guide, but from here your experience will differ depending on your region, but the basic process should be the same.

For us, we’re going to choose United States of America:

We’re then going to select “New York” because that’s where we are from. However, unless you’re also from New York, you’re instead going to select the country and region that you are from, which might be different than New York. That is completely fine. Instead of selecting New York, select instead whatever country and region you are from.

Another reminder, we are doing this based out of the United States and New York. Certain parts of this process might differ slightly depending on your region. That is okay, you can still use this guide and make slight adjustments based on your region.

For us, it is giving us the option to either use Debit or Credit, or Instant ACH Bank Transfer:

We’re going to choose Debit or Credit.

From here we will be asked to select a cryptocurrency:

You’ll notice in the screenshot it says on the top: “Select from the list of tokens available on Polygon Mainnet.”

So seeing this is confirmation that you are on the right network. If you see something else, for example: “Select from the list of tokens available on (any other network other than Polygon Mainnet) then you might be on the wrong network. If this is the case, go back to the beginning and switch to Polygon Mainnet.

Most likely if you’ve followed these instructions here so far you will already be on Polygon Mainnet. As such, you will see options to buy USDC or Matic.

At the time of this writing we do not currently accept USDC as payment for memberships here. So with that in mind, and for the purposes of this guide, we are going to choose MATIC. So with this being said, go ahead and click on MATIC for your cryptocurrency to buy.

This should take you to the MATIC buy screen:

From here you will be asked to enter an amount of Matic to buy. As mentioned earlier, for other cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Ethereum we recommend buying an extra $5 on top of the membership price. However, because Matic is so cheap to send, you can instead purchase just $2 above the membership price. So as you’re following along with this, you can purchase just $2 above the membership price. So for example, for a one month membership that costs $20, simply purchase $22 worth of Matic:

So once you’ve entered the proper amount of Matic to buy ($12 for a One Week Membership, $22 for a One Month Membership or $62 for a Lifetime Membership) then click the blue “Done” button.

This will take you to the next screen which will basically be a set up for what you’re buying (Matic), the amount you’re buying ($22) and your payment method (Debit or Credit):

Once you’re on this screen and everything is set up correctly, click on the blue “Get quotes” button.

This will take you to the “Fetching quotes” screen:

This will land you on the “Select a Quote” screen:

Again, this might differ for you depending on your region. That is completely fine. For us, we’re given a quote from link by Stripe. Essentially this is saying we’ll get $20.69 worth of Matic for $22, making the fee $1.31. This is both normal and reasonable, so let’s proceed by clicking “Continue with Stripe.”

Note: If you get a message that says something along the lines of “New updated quote available” or something along the lines of telling you to “approve a new quote.” That is completely fine and normal. It’s just the nature of how buying crypto goes. Most likely the new quote is off by a very small amount, but you can double check the new quote before proceeding if you’d like.

Once you’ve hit the “Continue” button, you should see the next screen outlining what you are paying and receiving and the fee amount:

In this example everything looks good. The fee in this particular example actually seems to have gone down to $1.06 (most likely during the quote update we mentioned a moment ago) which is all good. In this example we’re essentially getting $20.94 of Matic, which at the time of this example is 18.4659 MATIC. Keep in mind, that when you do this, the Matic you receive might be completely different amount of Matic depending on the Matic price at the time you’re doing this. That is completely fine, you will still get the $20.94 worth of Matic, so it’s normal if you get an amount of Matic different from 12.1606 as shown here in this example. So let’s click the “Continue” button to go to the next screen:

So for us it’s asking us to Sign up or log in to link. For you it might be a different process depending on your region and payment processor. That is fine.

So for us we’ll enter an email and continue.

From here it might ask you to enter the 6 digit code to confirm your email:

Once that’s done it will ask you to confirm your wallet:

So MetaMask should already have your wallet address entered in. You really should be all set up with this. If you want you can go back and double check to make sure it is the correct wallet address, but there’s a very high probability this is automatically set up correctly for you.

So once you’re satisfied that is your wallet address, click the blue “Use this wallet” button.

This will take you to the “Add a payment method” screen:

From here you can add your payment method. In this case we added a debit card number. Once your payment method is added, click the blue “Review order” button.

This will take you to the final screen before placing your order:

So to review, you’ll see your email, where your Matic will be sent to, your payment method, the amount of Matic you are receiving, fees, total price. In this example everything looks good, so we’ll click the blue “Pay” button now:

If you get a message that says the price of MATIC updated, as mentioned before that is completely fine and normal, and it is likely off by a very small amount:

Regardless, even if the price signficantly changed (very unlikely in a short time frame), you’ll still only be paying the same amount, it will just be a matter of getting less Matic. In other words, it’s reasonable to proceed as this price update is normal, so you can go ahead and click the blue “Accept and pay button.”

From here, you will land on the “Your purchase is processing” screen:

They say it can take up to 10 minutes for the Matic to reach your wallet, although in our experience it will happen much faster. Either way is fine because there are a few steps to complete while we wait.

So let’s continue by clicking the blue “Return to MetaMask” button.

This will take you back to your wallet’s home screen:

If you see your MATIC balance at $0, and a “Processing your purchase of MATIC” message on the bottom of your screen. Don’t worry, your Matic is on the way.

Eventually, within a few minutes you’ll have the Matic you purchased in your account:

From here, you’ll be able to make your membership payment quickly and easily.

Start by logging into your Findom App account, and going to the “Membership” menu option to select your membership:

From here, select which ever membership you feel most comfortable with. In this example, we’re going to choose the “One Month Membership”:

From here, click “Select” to be taken to the “Membership Payment” screen:

From here, click the blue “Message Subs Now” button:

This will take you to the payment screen where you’ll choose your currency:

In this example, we’re going to choose “Polygon (MATIC)”:

From here, click the blue “Proceed to payment” button to be taken to the final payment screen:

From here, under where it says “Send Polygon to this address”, that extended series of numbers and letters is the Polygon address you’ll be sending your payment to. Click on the address once to copy it:

Now that the address is copied, go back to MetaMask:

From here, click the blue button with the white up and down arrows at the bottom/middle of your screen. This will open a menu of different options:

Select the “Send” option towards the bottom. This will take you to the “Send to” screen:

The “From” should be selected automatically as your account. In the “To:” field, paste in the address that you previously copied.

Once the address is pasted, click the blue “Next” button at the bottom of the screen. This should take you to the “Amount” screen:

From here, select the button that shows $0.00. This will make it easier to enter in the exact membership amount. Here is what it will look like after switching the amount from Matic to Fiat:

From here, simply enter the price of your membership. So in this example we’re using a “One Month Membership” so we’ll simply enter “20” for $20:

You’ll notice in this example the equivilant MATIC is 17.74623. You are very likely going to see a different MATIC amount even if you enter exactly $20. That is completely fine and normal. The important part is that you are sending $20.

From here click the blue “Next” button, which will take you to the “Confirm” screen:

Here you can review everything. If these instructions were followed everything should be set up correctly. Some things you can note are the account you are sending from and the MATIC balance. Your MATIC balance should be above the amount of MATIC you are sending, which in this case it is.

The account you are sending to should be the same address as the address given on the Findom App payment screen, which it is (you can check with the last few numbers, in this example: E400)

Then you can check the amount of MATIC you are sending. In this example it is 17.74623 MATIC which is equivolent to $20 which is good.

Then you’ll notice the estimated gas fee is 0.002038 in this example which is fantastic, less than a penny. You selected the best cryptocurrency to use for payment!

So at this point, let’s go ahead and click the blue “Send” button at the bottom. This will take you to back to your home screen, with “transaction submitted at the bottom:

Within seconds you should see the transaction complete screen on bottom:

Now lets go back to the Findom App payment screen:

Back at the Findom App payment screen, you will still see the QR Code and the screen as you left it. That is fine, it takes about 1-2 minutes for the payment to be recognized by our system. So in this case wait for about 1-2 minutes. After about 2 minutes, you’ll see the “Confirming on blockchain” screen:

This is great news! It means your payment was submitted correctly. The way our current payment gateway is set up requires 250 confirmations before upgrading your account. This doesn’t take as long as it sounds, it will be approximately 3-8 minutes, so just hang tight in the meantime, but again once you’ve reached the “Confirming on blockchain” page you’re essentially all set.

So for example purposes, let’s continue to wait for 250/250 Confirms:

You don’t necessarily have to keep this screen open and wait you can go do other things if you’d like, but you’re welcome to follow along as well. For this example, we’re going to leave the screen open and continue to wait for confirmation:

Once you’ve reached all of the confirms, you’ll see “Successful Payment” screen:

At this point, you’re completely finished with the payment process, and your membership will now be upgraded. So let’s click the green “Return to website” button to go to the “Membership Confirmation” page:

Here you will see your membership confirmation along with other details such as an Invoice # and expiration date if applicable. You’re welcome to print or screenshot for your records.

At this point, the payment process is complete, and your membership is upgraded and you’ll be able to start messaging subs right away!
