How to Change the ETH Gas Fee

Fees are required in order to submit a transaction on the Ethereum (ETH) Network. The fees are set by the app based on the recommended Gas price or higher, in order to prioritize the transaction. Learn more about it here: Cryptocurrency Network Fees.

Important:
Changing the fees can cause your transaction to get stuck or fail. All of the fees are paid to the miners regardless of wether the transaction gets confirmed or cancelled. Fees are not refundable.

Step 1. Create a Transaction

For this example, we are going to try and send some ETH. More complex transactions, like sending a token or doing swaps require higher fees. Put the Recipient Address and Amount. Tap on Continue. The next screen will show a summary of the transaction and the calculated fee.

Step 2. Access the Advanced Settings

Tap the Gear at the upper right hand of the screen to access the Advanced settings. Tap on the Gas Price (Gwei) field, in order to adjust the fees.

Step 3. Change the Fees

Important:
Changing the fees can cause your transaction to get stuck or fail.

Manually edit the Gas Price (Gwei) to the desired fee. This should be a numeric value. The app will give you a prompt about lowering the fees. Please be careful with this setting.

Step 4. Save your Settings

After putting in the desired fee, tap on Save to confirm the changes. You will notice that the fee has been reduced. Again, this might cause issues with your transaction. Proceed at your own risk.

Note:
This approach will be similar with other ETH transactions. Changing the fees is always done by tapping on the Gear icon before you hit the Send button.
