How to Add Custom Token to MetaMask and PancakeSwap

Adding custom tokens to metamask is fairly simple process. You just need to press button “add token” from the bottom and then choose either:

  • search token
  • Custom token
Add token

SRVC Contract address: 0x40566447e5662ec1e609ac5679ea3d070080a522

There are plenty of tokens that you can just add to your MetaMask using the search function. However, there are also loads of coins that you need to manually import using smart contract addresses.

In this example, we use bscscan as we will add a custom token to PancakeSwap also. If you want to add ERC-20 token the process is totally the same but instead you need to use etherscan.io.

SEARCH FOR THE TOKEN YOU WANT TO ADD

First, just type the token name you want to add to the blockchain explorer search bar.

BscScan Explorer

We will use Subscription RVC (SRVC) as an example.

All you need to do is just pick 3 things from overview and profile summary:

  1. Token contract address
  2. Token symbol
  3. Decimals of precision

Then just add them to MetaMask and that’s it! Make sure you have previously added and selected Binance Smart Chain in MetaMask – we describe how to do it in a separate article.

In some cases (like with this example) we don’t actually need even fill anything else than the smart contract address!

HOW TO ADD TOKENS TO PANCAKESWAP

Adding tokens to PancakeSwap is quite easy as well, this is not rocket science but you need to be careful and check that you are importing the right address as anyone can create bep-20 token..

All you have to do is go back to bscscan.com to get the contract address you want to add.

CLICK INFO AND THEN TOKEN

From side menu find info dropdown and from there click tokens.

SEARCH FOR THE CONTRACT ADDRESS

Just like with MetaMask, you have to copy-paste the smart contract address to the search bar.

Now your token should be visible from the search, just click it and you will see information like volume, pairs, liquidity, etc. about the token you want to import.

Click trade from the right side and you will be redirected to pancakeswap.finance again where you will see the following message:

Now you only have to click I understand and continue, after that, you have imported token for PancakeSwap and can start trading or providing liquidity. But as the message above say you need to be sure you have imported the right token. If you don’t understand just take your time as you don’t want to be careless because it might be costly.
