Receiving XLM

Your Wallet allows you to transact with XLM. To receive XLM from a friend or third party, follow the steps below for help getting started.

1. Click on Request and choose Stellar from the Currency drop-down menu.
2. Click Copy to copy your XLM address to your clipboard and share it with the sender. Alternatively, the sender can scan the QR code shown below your address with their device. Please note: unlike with Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash, your wallet will only generate one Stellar address. Don’t worry; it can be reused an unlimited number of times.
3. Once finished, click Done or the X in the upper-right corner to close your Request window.
4. To monitor any incoming and outgoing XLM transactions, visit your Stellar tab in the left side navigation of your wallet.

Please note that you do not need to include a memo with your XLM transaction in order to receive funds to your Blockchain Wallet. If the platform you're sending from requires that you include a memo, simply type in any memo; it will not affect your ability to receive the funds to your Blockchain Wallet in any way.
