How will Whitelists and Blacklists help the store users? This feature will help in allowing early access benefits to the NFT enthusiasts, prevent users from gas wars and prevent spam from non-whitelisted addresses. Whitelisted users can enjoy the benefits of early minting as well. Presale minting access is only for pre-approved crypto addresses. Whitelisting is helpful to both projects and users as it helps mitigate fraud.

While the Blacklist feature is the exact opposite of the Whitelist feature. This feature allows users to restrict or block certain wallet addresses to take part in the Airdrops and other activities at the store.

The following steps will help you to add Whitelists and Blacklists to your store:

Creating A Whitelist:

To start with, go to your store's website. Click on the avatar-like icon at the top right of your screen, and a drop-down menu will appear. Click on ‘Store Settings’.



Here you will see some options horizontally at the top of your screen. Click on the last option ‘Lists’.



Now you will see some options vertically on the left side of your screen. Click on the ‘Whitelist’ option. Then click on the 'New Whitelist' option in order to create a new whitelist for your NFT Store.


If you are Creating a Whitelist and linking it to your Airdrop, it will only allow those wallet addresses that are in the Whitelist to claim the Airdrops.

Upon clicking on 'New Whitelist' button, you will be required to give a name to your Whitelist. Once you have named your Whitelist, click on the ‘Create Whitelist’ option.



Now your page will be refreshed and you will be able to see your newly created list under ‘My Whitelists’. You will now be able to see an icon in front of your list under the action, click on that. From there you can add users to your list, view your list, import users and delete your list.



Creating A Blacklist:

Click on the ‘Blacklist’ option on the left side of your screen to create a Blacklist. and then hit on the ‘New Blacklist' option.


A blacklist will help you to eliminate specific wallet addresses, that you have added to the list from your airdrops.

On the create new blacklist page, you will be required to give a name to your Blacklist. Once you have named your Blacklist, click on the ‘Create Blacklist’ option.



Once the blacklist has been created, you will be able to locate it on the 'My Blacklist' page. You will also be able to see an icon in front of your list under the action tab, click on the visible icon. From there you can add users to your list, view your list, import users and delete your list.



Importing User List to a Whitelist or a Blacklist:

Once you are done with Creating your Whitelist and Blacklist, you will see an ‘Import User’ option against the name of the respective list.


Here you can upload a complete file of users directly in case you have a long list of users and you want to avoid doing it manually.

After clicking on the ‘Import User’ option, you would be taken to the Import Users page, where you will be required to upload the user-wallet list in Excel format. First, choose the respective whitelist/blacklist from the drop-down to which you want to import the users to.



Once you have selected the list click on the ‘Upload Excel’ option. If you want the sample user Excel format, click on the ‘Download excel template here’ option at the right side of your screen.


Please note that each excel file can have up to 1000 entries.

After uploading the file, click on the ‘Import Now’ option.



On successful importing of data, your page will refresh and you will be taken back to the respect list page. Here, you will be able to check the status of your import list. If the data has been successfully imported, the status will be changed to 'Success'



Adding Users Manually:

If you want to add the users manually you will have an option for that also.

Go to that Whitelist or Blacklist. You will now be able to see an icon in front of your list under action, click on that. Now click on the ‘Add a user’ option.



A pop-up will appear. Here you have to add the name, email address, wallet address, and country of the user. Once you have mentioned all the necessary information, click on ‘Add User’ and your user will be added to the list.



This way you will be able to create a Whitelist and Blacklist for your store and at the same time, you will be able to add users to your created lists.
