How do I transfer funds from a paper wallet/private key?

Jaxx enables you to transfer funds from a paper wallet or even a standard address through the Private Key, to your current Jaxx Wallet. This will empty the paper wallet address and add its balance to your Jaxx wallet.

There are two ways to transfer a paper wallet's funds.

QR code scan (mobile and tablet versions only)

  1. Select the Menu at the top right of the main Jaxx screen.
  2. Select Tools.
  3. Select Transfer Paper Wallet
  4. Scan the QR code of the paper wallet's PRIVATE KEY by selecting the camera icon at the top center of the main Jaxx screen.
  5. After you scan the code, select Next.
  6. You will be prompted with a confirmation screen that will display the exact amount being imported. Select Transfer to complete the process.

Manual entry

If you are using a Jaxx browser extension or desktop version, you will need to enter the wallet's private key manually. To do so:

  1. Select the Menu at the top right of the main Jaxx screen.
  2. Select Tools.
  3. Select Transfer Paper Wallet

  1. After the prompt, type or paste in the paper wallet's private key and select Next.
  2. You will be prompted with a confirmation screen that will display the exact amount being imported. Select Sweep to complete the process.

 

Notes:

- Currently released versions 1.3.x do not have the Paper Wallet option active. Please use the Desktop x86 versions for Windows and Linux 1.2.41 that have the option enabled: https://jaxx.io/support.html. Our devs are reviewing the codebase for the option in the new version and are looking at enabling it back very soon.

- Also note that encrypted Paper Wallets are not supported by Jaxx at the moment.
