- In order to create a connection you will need a small amount of bitcoin in your wallet (check out our guide to your first deposit) to cover the connection fee
- You also need the Payment code you would like to connect to in either text or QR code. This always begins with 'PM8T'
Step 1 - Open payment code screen
From the main screen of the wallet press the blue '+' button located on the bottom right of the screen. Tap the purple Payment codes button.
Step 2 - New connection
Tap the New connection button and select if you want to scan the payment code from a QR code or paste from the clipboard.
Step 3 - Add details
If you are scanning a QR code:
If the scan was successful you will see a screen with the payment code auto-filled. You may add a label to help identify who this payment code belongs to.
If you are pasting from the clipboard:
Paste the payment code from the clipboard into the text field labeled 'payment code'. You may add a label to help identify who this payment code belongs to.
Step 4 - Confirm connection
Tap the check-mark icon on the right side of the toolbar to proceed to the next step.
Before the connection is made you will be asked to review the connection fee. Press Confirm to accept the fee and broadcast the connection to the bitcoin network.
If you do not have enough bitcoin in your wallet, simply deposit more bitcoin then return to the payment code screen. You will see the payment code added to your list. Tap on it to resume the connection process.
Step 5 - Wait for blockchain confirmation
You must wait for 1 confirmation on the bitcoin block chain before the connection is considered established. Once established you can easily send bitcoin to your new connection without asking for a bitcoin address.
