Official Website: https://zilpay.io/
Compatible Operating Systems: Windows, Mac OS, Linux, Android & IOS
Description: ZilPay is a browser extension which can used int following browsers: Chrome, Firefox, Opera, and Brave. ZilPay enables a connection to the Zillqa blockchain without running a full node. Because it offers a connection between the browser and blockchain, it is able to simplify Zilliqa usage and permit users to run Zilliqa apps from right within their browsers.
There is also an opportunity for developers to integrate smart contract calls which enables the wallet to work directly with dApps. This makes it a lot easier for developers to work with the Zilliqa blockchain.

Head over to the ZilPay website where you will be able to download the browser extension. This will give you access to wallet menu which will allow you to create a ZILPay wallet.
Step 2: Create Wallet
Once you have installed the browser extension, you will be presented with the screen below. Here you can create a wallet by clicking on the box that reads ‘CREATE’.
Step 3: Recovery Information
You will then be presented with the below screen. This is where your 12-word recovery phrase will be displayed. It is strongly advised to make a physical paper copy of these phrases which should be stored in a secure place. The phrases are order sensitive; this means they must be recorded in the order they are displayed.
Step 4: Homepage
This is the home page for the ZILPay wallet. It is a very simple layout which allows you to clearly see your current ZIL balance for the wallet and a recent transaction history.
Step 5: Sending and Receiving
At the bottom of the home page is where the options to send and receive ZIL can be found.
If you click the send option then the menu screen as shown below will appear.
The box with ‘Enter address’ is where you will enter the wallet address for wherever you are sending the ZIL to. An example of what this will look like is shown below.
Clicking proceed will take you to the next stage which is shown below. You can enter the amount of ZIL you wish to send.
Clicking on the ‘Receive’ tab at the bottom of the home page will display your ZIL wallet address as shown below.
We strongly recommend always copy and pasting your wallet address we you are providing it to people as typing it out can lead to errors. If you are looking to have ZIL sent to your wallet then you will need to provide this wallet address to whoever is sending it to you.
Step 6: Contacts
At the bottom of the page, you can also head over to the contacts page. This is where you can save wallet addresses for quick transactions as you will not have to type out their wallet address each time as it will be saved already.
Clicking the blue plus sign in the bottom right corner will allow you to add a new contact. You can then add the contact details such as their name and wallet address.
We recommend checking with the receiver before sending each time to make sure their wallet address has not changed as it could result in the loss of your ZIL.

ZILPay Wallet Overview
• Strip backed layout allows for easy use
• Contact’s feature allows for quick transactions
• Only supports ZIL and its network tokens
• Does not offer the same security as a cold wallet
• Not suitable for significant holdings
ZilPay is a great wallet to use if you are only interest in purchasing relatively small amounts of ZIL. It’s a great way to familiarise yourself with how cryptos are sent and received as the interface is very simple in its function and aesthetic.
If you are looking to hold a significant sum of ZIL then a cold wallet is the better option. This because the security features are a lot more substantial for a cold wallet compared to an online wallet.
