FAQs

Queue System

A queue might occur if checkout traffic exceeds a certain level. If you’re placed in a queue, do not refresh your browser; this will send you to the end of the line. Your screen will automatically update when it’s your turn.

Refreshing for the “Get it Now” Button

You may need to refresh the drop details page if you arrive before the sale starts to see the “Get it now” button.

Adding Credits to Your Candy Account

Credits can be added either by selling a collectible in the Candy marketplace or by depositing USDC, as outlined in this guide.

Collectible Reservation

Your collectible is not reserved until the checkout process is complete.

Edition numbers for the collectibles contained within the purchased packs will be assigned randomly. Packs will be issued in sequential edition numbers.

Buying Tips
