How to Set Up Your Stronghold Payment Pointer

What's a Payment Pointer?

Stronghold powers U.S. dollar payments on Coil, the blogging platform that allows audiences to contribute to content creators via real time payments.

Before you can cash out your earnings in U.S. dollars, you’ll need to create a Stronghold account and connect it to Coil so funds are directed to your Stronghold wallet.


Make U.S. Dollars Your Preferred Currency on Coil

First, log in to your Coil account and set up your creator profile. After choosing your username, choose the USD option under Preferred Currency.

Create a Stronghold Account

Sign up for Stronghold and complete the account verification process. Make sure to confirm your identity so your wallet can accept contributions and withdraw funds.

Set Up Your Payment Pointer

From the Stronghold Launchpad, click My USD Payment Pointer.

On the following page, find your unique Payment Pointer code and click “Copy."

Visit the Coil Creator Settings page and paste your unique Payment Pointer into the space provided.

That’s it; your incoming Coil payments will now be converted into U.S. dollars by default. To withdraw funds from your Stronghold wallet, follow the steps on this page.
