How to receive and request payments with LOBSTR wallet?

Modified on Wed, 29 Nov 2023 at 01:52 PM

There are several 'receive' options that can be found on the 'Receive' page of the LOBSTR website and 'Deposit' > 'Receive' screen on the LOBSTR mobile apps.

You can receive funds by:

- sharing your federation address. The federation address is set by the user when creating a Stellar wallet and typically looks similar to ‘username*’;


- sharing your Stellar address. It's a 56-character string starting with “G”, which is generated automatically when creating a wallet; 

- sharing your 'Accept all' federation address (e.g. '*' or '+12025550149*');

Alternatively, the sender can scan the QR code shown above the 'Receive' options on each of the three tabs.

Please note that before receiving a Stellar asset, you need to add this asset on the 'Home' screen on mobile apps or the 'Assets' screen on the web. When adding each new asset (establishing a trustline), the reserved balance of your wallet increases by 0.5 XLM. 

Learn more about the reserved Stellar wallet balance here.

If 'Accept all' address is enabled, the trustline will be added automatically upon receiving a certain asset. 


Note: Memo is not required to receive funds in the LOBSTR wallet since LOBSTR provides unique addresses for all our users. If the service you use to send a transaction requires you to indicate the memo, you can safely enter just 'Lobstr' there.

Requesting payments with LOBSTR

You can also request a payment from another person. The request can be made using the following steps:

- Click the 'Request Money' button on the Receive page;

- In the opened pop-up, specify the recipient's email or Stellar address, requested amount, and message (if needed) and click on the 'Request' button;

Done! The recipient will get the email with the details of your request in seconds.
