NFT trading has taken the world by storm, with digital art and collectibles selling for millions of dollars. This new form of ownership and value exchange is changing the way we view art and assets in the digital age.
There are now more NFT marketplaces than ever before, offering creators and collectors a plethora of options to buy, sell, and trade unique digital assets. But as each one is unique in its own right, not every platform is able to secure sustainable profits and ensure a safe and easy trading process.
Why use web3 escrow and marketplace for NFT trading?
Are you tired of the limitations and cons of popular NFT marketplaces like OpenSea and Rarible? While these platforms have their benefits, they also have their fair share of drawbacks. At OpenSea, you may struggle to stand out in the crowded marketplace without a substantial following on other social media platforms. And with Rarible, connecting your wallet and creating a wallet with the platform can be a complicated and frustrating process. Plus, both platforms charge fees on every successful NFT transaction, making it harder for you to earn what you deserve for your NFTs.
Luckily, Zenland offers a better solution for NFT trading. With Zenland’s web3 escrow and marketplace, you can enjoy zero fees, fast transactions, and full control over your sales. You don’t have to worry about standing out in a crowded marketplace, as Zenland’s unique escrow model ensures that buyers and sellers can trade confidently without competing for attention.

Zenland escrow contracts walkthrough [screenshots]
Now, as you know what the popular NFT marketplaces and their policies look like, it’s time to turn your attention to Zenland.
With its low fees for both primary and secondary sales (1.75%), smart contract escrow protection, and direct payouts to ETH wallets, Zenland can be the only NFT marketplace you need.
The selling/buying process is described below 🙂
Step 1. Morty logs in with a Metamask wallet address (anonymous web3 login)
Unlike some of the NFT marketplaces that require you to install their own wallets before trading NFTs, Zenland supports non-custodial wallet login. No registration or password is required.
Step 2. Morty adds an item to the profile and sends the link to Anonymous
On Zenland any NFT owner can set up a web3 store to trade items at no additional cost. Sellers add NFT collections as items and their clients can view them on store profiles (both with and without logging in).
Sharing through social media accounts and forums gives clients access to items on sale.
Step 3. Anonymous selects the item and approves the terms of the purchase
Once the seller sets the item as pre-approved (see the step on adding item), buyers can place orders to purchase it. They first must review and approve the terms described in the item contract (such as delivery time, quality of an item, buyer protection time, etc.
Step 4. Anonymous sends the contract to the blockchain and locks payment inside
To confirm the order placement for a specific NFT or other crypto collectibles, the buyer sends the payment inside the smart contract so that the seller can see the payment deposit.
Step 5. Morty sends the skin to Bono and confirms the completion
Seeing the payment inside, the seller transfers the NFT to the buyer’s Metamask wallet. If you store NFT in crypto wallets other than Metamask you should first transfer it to your connected Metamask address.
The order is confirmed through the blockchain and the buyer is notified via the platform’s notification system.
Step 6. Anonymous inspects and releases payment from the contract to Morty
The buyer has time, known as buyer protection time to verify that the order is delivered on time and according to the seller’s description. Also within this time frame the payment deposit is unlocked and sent to the seller’s web3 wallet address.
At any point before the release of payment, Morty and Anonymous can dispute their deal and negotiate anonymously via the Contract Chat.
Step 7. Morty and Anonymous rate and review each other
After the NFT trade both sides rate and review each other to help other users see if they want to buy or sell from a particular user.
