How to Create an NFT on Zora and forward proceeds to a Juicebox project

· 2 min read

In this guide, I’ll show you how to deploy an NFT drop to Ethereum with Zora’s creator tools, and forward the mint sale proceeds to a Juicebox Project.

As of 2022-08-01, Zora charges a 5% fee on primary sales. This may change in future.

Before you start, you should have:

  • At least one piece of artwork for your NFT (image, audio, video).
  • A Juicebox project you’d like to fund. This can be your project or someone else’s.

1. Navigate to Project tools

Go to the project you would like to pay on Click the Tools button at the top-right of the page.

2. Create payable address

Click Deploy project payer contract in the project tools.

3. Deploy your Project Payer

Click Deploy project payer contract. Leave the Advanced features set to their defaults. Verify that the transaction looks good in your wallet, then sign it.

Bonus: If you include text or an ipfs://Qm... link to an image in the memo field, every contribution to the project made via this Project Payer will have that text and/or image in the Juicebox project's activity feed.

4. Copy Project Payer address

When the transaction succeeds, a pop-up will display the new Project Payer’s address.

A new event called “Created ETH-ERC20 payment address” will also appear in the project’s activity feed with the same information. Copy the Project Payer address to your clipboard.

5. Create your NFT

Go to and select an NFT drop type. I’ll be selecting Editions. Fill out your NFT’s data and upload the NFT media. Paste the Project Payer address we copied earlier into the Funds Recipient input.

6. Forward ETH to the Juicebox Project

As your NFTs sell, ETH accumulates in the NFT contract. To move the funds to the Juicebox project, navigate to, select your NFT collection, then click Withdraw, and sign the transaction. The payment to the Juicebox project will appear in the Activity feed when the transaction succeeds.

That’s it! Try minting an NFT to see it in action! For support, visit
