How do I set custom Ethereum network fees?

The custom fee you choose is the maximum fee that you might pay. In many cases, the gas for your transaction will cost less than the fee chosen, and any extra ETH will be returned to your wallet.

Web3 Wallet

1
In your Ethereum wallet, click Send.

2
a) Paste in the address you want to send the funds to, then enter the amount you wish to send. To set a custom fee, b) click on the arrow next to Estimated Network Fee.

3
a) Use the slider to set your custom fee, then b) click Confirm. Note that a lower transaction fee will take longer to confirm, and if the fee is too low your transaction could get stuck. A transaction with a higher fee will confirm faster.

After you have set your custom fee, you can send your transaction. For more information about how to send crypto, see: How do I send crypto on Web3 Wallet?

What should I do if my Ethereum transaction is stuck?

If you set your custom transaction fee too low, your transaction might take a long time to confirm or get stuck pending.

Don't worry! Exodus has a feature to accelerate stuck transactions.

Exodus Desktop and Mobile support accelerating ETH and ERC20 transactions. You will need some ETH in your wallet to pay the extra transaction fee. If you don't have any ETH, you will not be able to accelerate your transaction.

Web3 Wallet

If you have sent a transaction with a low transaction fee, it could take a long time for your transaction to confirm, and it could get stuck.

Currently, it is not possible to accelerate an ETH transaction directly from Exodus Web3 Wallet.

In the rare case that your ETH or ERC20 transaction gets stuck, you can sync your Web3 Wallet to Exodus Desktop or Mobile, and accelerate your transaction from there.


Desktop

1
Open your Ethereum or ERC20 wallet and find the transaction that has gotten stuck pending.
2
Click on it to see more details. Exodus will automatically calculate a higher transaction fee to successfully send your stuck transaction. This fee will be deducted from your Ethereum balance as soon as you click Accelerate. If you would like to proceed, click Accelerate.


Mobile

1
Open your Ethereum or ERC20 wallet and find the transaction that has gotten stuck pending.
2
Tap on it to see more details, then tap Accelerate.
3
You will see the amount needed to accelerate your transaction. To proceed, tap Confirm.

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