Wait for a bit

Transaction processing times may take longer based on the demand of the Ethereum network. If your transaction isn’t going through, try checking Etherscan’s Gas Tracker to find out details about your transaction, including an estimate on when it’ll be confirmed. 

Check your transfer network

Another reason for your transaction not going through could be that you’re sending the transaction on the wrong network.

Keep in mind that if an NFT is listed on Ethereum, it can only be traded on the Ethereum blockchain. So check to see if you’ve got the network right before making the transaction again. 

Your wallet balance isn’t enough to pay the gas fees

All transactions on the Ethereum blockchain require a gas fee for miners to process that transaction. If your wallet doesn’t have enough balance to pay for whatever the gas fees are at the moment of your transfer, your transaction won’t go through.

Check the gas fees and ensure you’ve got enough in your wallet.

Wallet connection issues

If your wallet is experiencing connection issues, your transactions will not work properly. Keep in mind that Opensea is just a way to access the NFT assets stored in your wallet.

So, if the connection between your wallet and Opensea is hindered, you won’t be able to see the transactions on your Opensea account.

Clear your browser’s data

Check for updates

If the issue is in the browser itself, developers might release an update to fix the problem. Regardless, you should always ensure you’ve got the latest version of the browser installed to avoid running into issues that could otherwise be avoided. 

Head over to chrome://settings/help and make sure you’re on the latest update. If you’re not, update immediately and try again.

Now restart the browser and try visiting Opensea again. This should fix the Opensea transfer not working issue.

Your NFT was delisted

If the item or collection you got your NFT from violates Opensea’s Terms of Service, it’ll be delisted from being visible on the platform. It will still exist on the blockchain as Opensea doesn’t have jurisdiction over that, but you won’t see it on the platform.
