How do I set my fees?

Please note: The custom fee you choose is the maximum fee that you might pay. In many cases, the gas for your transaction will end up costing less than the fee chosen, and the extra ETH will be returned to your wallet.

What should I do if my transaction is stuck?

There is a chance that the cheaper fee rate was set too low so your transaction gets stuck and might take a long time for it to confirm.

Do not worry! Exodus has built-in a feature for you to ensure you can speed up your slow transaction.

All you need to do is open your Ethereum wallet on your desktop device, find the transaction that has been stuck Pending for too long, then click it to see more details and finally click Accelerate.

Please note: You will need some Ethereum available in your wallet to accelerate a transaction. If you send All your Ethereum then you will not be able to accelerate your transaction.

Mobile
  • Desktop: Exodus will automatically calculate a higher transaction fee and it will be deducted from your Ethereum balance as soon as you click Accelerate.
  • Mobile: you will see the network fee amount, and you must tap Confirm in order to accelerate the transaction.

Please note: In the mobile wallet, custom fees must be toggled on in order to see the Accelerate option.
