How to swap on the Polygon network

Swapping with Uniswap v3 on Polygon is the same as swapping on the Ethereum Mainnet.

 

To swap on Polygon, follow these steps:

  1. Open Uniswap web app and connect your wallet. Next, select the network drop-down in the upper right hand of the screen.

  7. Enter the amount you would like to swap, receive, or select the “Max” option.

    The “Max” option automatically inputs the total amount of the token you have available in your wallet for swapping.

  8. Select “Swap”.



  9. Review the swap details, and then select “Confirm Swap”.

    Your trade will only use Uniswap V3 liquidity pools on Polygon -- it will not use a different network’s liquidity, even if a better price is available on a different network.

    You can view liquidity and volume on Polygon pairs at the Uniswap info site.

  11. In your wallet, allow the token to be used for swapping. This has network costs.

    If this is your first time swapping the token with the Uniswap protocol, then you’ll need to approve the token in order to trade it.

    For more information on token approvals see our article “What is a token approval?”

  12. In your wallet, confirm the swap.

    Once the swap is confirmed, the transaction is submitted to the blockchain (pending).
