Adding your Algorand NFT Collection to NFT Factory: Updated

Adding your Algorand NFT Collection to NFT Factory: Updated

Adding your collection to NFT Factory has never been easier.  With a simple 2-step process you can upload all collection details along with each NFT and its info/image & metadata.  

First, you will want to visit and select secondary listing.

Here you will be prompted to upload collection information via JSON or CSV.

The first CSV upload will include your collection information.  Title, Profile Image, Banner, Description, & any websites you would like to link. (You can edit these once the collection is uploaded)

Here is an example CSV from our Algo Astros collection info:

You can download the first CSV template here.

Images can be uploaded to IPFS via ARC Minter, simply upload your image, and take the Hash from the console.  This can easily be converted to a link by adding "" to the beginning of the hash.

Once uploaded you will be prompted to download a second CSV template available here.

This template will allow you to fill out all the information about the NFTs in your collection.  Now, this may seem cumbersome at first, especially sourcing all of this information if it isn't immediately available.  Luckily, the Algorand ecosystem has fostered some incredible tools for creators in this ecosystem.  

Check out Evil Tools, created by Thurstober.  An incredibly powerful & useful tool for finding out collection data via creator address.

Evil Tools Interface

This will create a CSV of each asset created by a collection wallet, including IPFS links and metadata. It will look something like this.

It will then be easy to copy these over to the template for the NFT Factory upload. For now, we are omitting metadata to make this process smoother. Metadata can be added to the template, but it must be added correctly to not result in an error. More information coming soon regarding metadata and traits on NFT Factory.

NOTE: When adding information, the IPFS links will need to be corrected throughout the CSV if copying directly from Evil Tools.  This can be done very quickly with Google Sheets or Excel.

Use "Find and Replace" to replace "ipfs://" with "", Find all & replace, then copy to the NFT Factory template.

Sorting the table by assetID allows you to order them by mint order. CSVs with errors will cause the uploaded to attempt to mint the NFT, if this happens refresh the page, check for errors, & try again. A complete CSV will look like this.

Once added to the template properly you may now upload the collection's information to NFT Factory.

NFTs can then be searched for on NFT Factory; sorted by Collection Name, ASA, Creator, and Traits (coming soon).  Features like the shopping cart to buy up to 15 NFTs in one go, buy NFTs in HDL & ALGO, customize collection pages, profiles, and much more.

Now, Once a collection is added to NFT Factory, each NFT is viewed by the site as 'admin-owned' and can be claimed by the owner/holder by creating an account (Connecting a wallet), finding the NFT via Turbo Mode or searching & claiming via the dropdown menu on the asset page.

NFT Factory only sees NFTs added to NFT Factory via Turbo Mode, Collection Upload, and NFTs Minted on NFT Factory.  Algorand Addresses that have not connected to NFT Factory are not recognized by NFT Factory until a wallet is connected & NFTs are imported & recognized by NFT Factory.

We know this may feel a little foreign to the current Algorand NFT Landscape. NFT Factory is more comparable to scalable NFT marketplaces on other chains. Think Rarible, OpenSea, and MagicEden, all rolled into one, on Algorand.  With NFT Factory, we are building a marketplace that can scale with the masses and truly take Algorand NFTs to the next level.

NFT Sales on NFT Factory are recorded on NFT Explorer, and an active listings API is coming very soon.
