Bulk Mint

In order to mint in bulk, data is uploaded to a PaintSwap server, processed and then uploaded with IPFS.


Bulk mint is available for Factory Contracts, but not the PaintSwap Community contract.

Bulk minting requires uploading data in a structured format. This data is then processed by PaintSwap and uploaded with IPFS. This process can take some time, so be sure to:

  • Validate all data is according to the format requirements in this page

  • Have patience when uploading data

  • Test first with a single item to have faster back-and-forth testing if something is not working
