How to bridge my Polygon tokens

Our step-by-step guide for bridging with Polygon.

Some networks require a bridge to transfer tokens from one network to another, and Polygon is one of them! All you need is the Polygon Bridge, to transfer ERC tokens to the Polygon side-chain using smart contracts. This may sound a little complicated, but it really isn’t!

You can learn how to use the Polygon Bridge in our simple step-by-step guide below:

  1. Visit the Polygon Bridge website and connect your wallet to the polygon PoS bridge platform.

  2. Click the “Deposit” option and choose the network you want to convert tokens from, the token, and the amount.

  3. Click on the “Transfer” button. Next, you’ll see a pop-up window with all gas fees related to this operation.

  4. Press “Continue” and confirm the transaction on your wallet.

  5. The transaction request will be sent to the network. This might take a few minutes.

You’ll then be able to see the tokens in your wallet!

Important note: The Proof of Stake (PoS) bridge is secured by validators and usually takes from 45 minutes to three hours when/if you want to move your funds back to Ethereum.
