Jaxx enables you to transfer funds from a paper crypto 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 through a standard funds transfer transaction (that also requires the miner fees to be paid).

There are two ways to transfer a paper wallet’s funds as we’ll be elaborating below.

By QR code scan (mobile and tablet versions)

1. Select the Menu at the top right of the main Jaxx screen.

2. Select Tools.

4. Read the message on the first screen and then tap/click on I UNDERSTAND.

5. Scan the QR code of the paper wallet’s PRIVATE KEY by selecting the camera icon next to the input field.

6. After you scan the Private Key, select Next from the bottom right corner.

7. A confirmation screen will tell you what the balance is for the wallet you are trying to swipe and will ask for your confirmation.

  2. Select Tools

    Here you can find some options to manage your account.
