In this guide, we'll walk you through to the MetalPay Alpha sign up process, so that you'll be Popping in no time! This Alpha version of MetalPay runs on a test environment so all money used within the app is purely play money and has no real value.
Sign Up For Our MetalPay Alpha Testing Group
Head over to the MetalPay Alpha signup page if you haven't already. Enter your email address and click on the "Sign Up For Updates" button. We'll be sending out new invites daily, so do keep in mind that you may need to wait up to 24 hours to receive your invite mail. This invite mail will come from TestFlight, an online service for over-the-air installation and testing of mobile applications.
Step 1: Go to the Apple Store And Download And Install TestFlight
Go to the Apple Store and search for TestFlight in the search bar and install the app.
Step 2: Open The TestFlight Invite Mail
Open the email with your iPhone and click on the "View In TestFlight" button to add MetalPay alpha to TestFlight.
Step 3: Open TestFlight And Install MetalPay Alpha
Click on the "Install" button to download and install the MetalPay Alpha app.
Step 4: Sign up For MetalPay
The MetalPay Alpha app is now installed and an icon will appear on your phone. Open the MetalPay app and enjoy the gorgeous welcome splash page. Click on the "Sign up for MetalPay" button to start the signup process.
Step 5: Enter Your Phone Number
Enter your phone number and click on the "Next" button to proceed to the next step.
Step 6: Enter The 6 Digit Verification Code
You will receive a 6 digit verification code by SMS. Enter the 6 digit code and press on the "Next" button to proceed.
Step 7: Choose Your Password
Set a password that's at least 8 characters long. Repeat your chosen password in the repeat field and click on the "Create My Account" button to proceed.
Step 8: Link Your Bank Account
Click on the "Link Bank" button to start the banking identification process.
Step 9: Select Your Bank
Select a bank you want to link, in this example we choose Chase.
Step 10: Enter The Bank Credentials
Since this is a test environment, we have selected a user ID and password that will always work for everyone. So don't enter your own credentials but only use these credentials:
Step 11: Select The Account You Want To Link
Click on the checking or savings account and click on the "Continue" button to continue. The $100 shown is the balance of your linked bank account. You don't transfer the $100 from your checking account to the Cash account on MetalPay by linking your bank. So when signup is completed, your Cash account on MetalPay will be 0. This is normal.
Linking your bank account allows you to retrieve money from your bank account when you send Cash to other MetalPay users. There is a $200 daily limit imposed on test accounts.
Step 12: Verify Your Identity
Since this is a test environment, only Alberta Bobbeth will pass the identification process. So don't change anything and simply click on the "Looks Good" button to continue.
Step 13: Select Your Birth Date
You need to be 18 years old to use MetalPay. So choose a date accordingly, because an age below 18 won't be accepted, not in the Alpha test version and not in the release version.
Step 14: Select A Profile Picture
Click on the "Select From Photos" or take a selfie to choose a profile picture to finalize the signup process.
Step 14: Start Popping
The MetalPay Alpha is best enjoyed with friends, so invite them here and start collecting Pop! Collect up to 5% bonus on payments you send and receive. The bonus is paid to you in Metal, our cryptocurrency. This reward mechanism is what we call Pop.
You can expect weekly updates via TestFlight. Please make sure to uninstall the app and re-install it through TestFlight with each new update to ensure that you are on the most recent version.
