After that you will need to copy your Metamask wallet address and input it on Binance as a recipient when withdrawing Ethereum from the Binance account. After you send Ethereum from the Binance account to Metamask, you need to wait for the transaction to be validated (usually up to 15 minutes) and after that you will see Ethereum in your Metamask wallet.

After you made the purchase you can see your NFT in your wallet by returning to your profile and clicking on “In wallet” on the left side of the page. There can be a delay before the NFT is visible in your wallet due to transaction processing time.

Making an offer for NFT

You can also try to buy NFT by making an offer. You can do so by clicking on the “Make offer” button on the NFT page. 

In case the collection you are buying the NFT from is not safelisted, you will be asked to review collection details and confirm that it is the right collection.
Now you can choose a currency in which you would like to make an offer. If you prefer to make an option in Ethereum (ETH), you will see an option with the symbol WETH.
In case the item you are buying is a Polygon item, you will instead make an offer in Polygon ETH (you will recognize it by the purple Ethereum logo).
