Jumper (previously Transferto.xyz) is your guide to the multi-chain ecosystem. Think of Jumper as your North Star, helping you seamlessly chart out the best routes from any token on one chain to your desired token on another. With Jumper, manually optimizing for the best routes is a thing of the past.
So what are you waiting for? Make the leap and begin your multi-chain adventures today!
Getting started with Jumper
Step 1: Jumper App
1.1: Go to jumper.exchange
Step 2: Connect your Wallet
2.1: Select the Connect Wallet button. After you do that, a list of wallets will appear. Choose your wallet.
2.2: After you have selected your wallet, you should see your wallet address appear in the top right-hand corner.
Step 3: Select the sending and destination chains
In order for Jumper to find you the best routes, we first need to know the token and chain you intend to swap from.
Sending chains and token
3.1: Click on the From section.
3.2. Select the chain you intend to swap from in Section A of the image below.
For selecting the token you intend to swap from, there are two options. You can either enter your token address or provide the token name in Section B or manually locate them by scrolling through the list in Section C.
Receiving chains and token
Next, we need to select the token and chain we intend to swap to.
3.3: Click on the To section.
3.4: Select the chain you intend to swap to and the tokens you want to receive.
Review selection and other settings
3.5: In the screenshot below, we have chosen to send USDC token on Polygon chain and hope to receive USDT token on Optimism chain. You next need to fill in the amount of tokens you want swap in Section A.
Optionally, if you want to change gain access to advance settings, you can select Section B. There, you would be able to configure slippage settings or preferred routing options (Recommended, Fast, Cheap, Safe).
Recommended - What Jumper’s algorithm recommends.
Fast - Route with the least time required for bridging.
Cheap - Route with the highest token value on the destination chain.
Safe - The most secure route.
In Section C, you can select to receive your funds in a different wallet address.
3.6: Upon inputting the number of tokens you want to swap, possible routes will appear for your selection. Each of these routes will indicate the expected amount of tokens you will receive on the destination chain as well as the bridges and dexes you will use along the way. In this case, we will select the Recommended route for bridging. You can click the icon to view more details of each route.
3.7: We will then review the swap, and if the details are correct, we can proceed by selecting Start swap.
3.8: Before Jumper allows you to proceed with a swap, we will check that you have sufficient gas on the destination chain should a swap be necessary. We would also alert you if your swap is expected to result in a high loss in value as a result of gas costs or unfavorable exchange rates.
4. Approving transactions
To proceed with the transaction, several steps need to be carried out.
4.1: Switching chains. If you are not connected to the sending chain, a popup will appear asking you to switch chains. For example, if we are connected to Optimism (destination chain) instead of Polygon (sending chain). Then, a switch to Polygon is necessary. Press Switch Network to continue.
4.2: Approving Jumper to use your tokens. We need to give Jumper access to use our tokens on the sending chain, which is USDC in this case. Press Confirm to continue.
4.3: Approving bridging transaction. We need to inform Jumper to proceed with the bridging transaction. Press Confirm to continue.
5. Transaction status
5.1: After completing approvals in the previous step, we need to wait for the transfer to complete. In Section A, you can see an estimate of how long the transaction is expected to take. In Section C, the status of the bridging transaction is shown.
In Section B, we can also see the bridging transaction that we previously approved. If you ever need help from our support team, please provide the bridging transaction to us. Do not provide the token allowance transaction (the one immediately above).
5.2: After waiting for a while, the transaction would complete.
6. Reviewing historical transactions
6.1: You can review transactions that have been made in the past by clicking this icon.
6.2: After doing that, your swap history will appear.
Getting help with your transactions
7.1 If you need help with your bridging transaction, click the icon in the top right-hand corner, followed by the Support button. Alternatively, when reviewing your transaction details, you can press the Contact Support button in Section D.
When talking to our support staff, please provide your bridging transaction hash (Section A) or Support ID (Section B). Do not provide the token allowance transaction hash (Section C).
That’s all for now! If you enjoyed your bridging experience, please share your experience with everyone on Twitter 🙂
