Why are NFTs not visible in OpenSea Account?

Before going to troubleshooting, understand that OpenSea does not in any way store your NFTs. It is just a marketplace with a connection to your crypto wallet showing all the NFTs you have purchased.

However, once you have purchased an NFT through OpenSea, they will be visible on your OpenSea profile. If they are not, here could be the possible reasons: 

  • Your Metamask Crypto Wallet Connection is Incomplete or Inadequate 

Close your browser, clear your cache and reconnect with your wallet. If you have more than one crypto wallet on Metamask, make sure you are connecting to the right one. 

  • You just completed the NFT transaction and you may not see the NFT

This can happen when the network traffic on Ethereum is higher than usual. The processing time would then increase. If you still want to double-check, you can check your transaction on Etherscan – https://etherscan.io/

How Long Does it Take to Receive NFT on OpenSea?
