If you want to get AVAX in your MetaMask wallet there are different ways to achieve that. You can buy AVAX on a decentralized exchange (DEX). However, this needs several extra steps that make this whole process more complicated.
A better alternative is to buy AVAX from Binance and send it to MetaMask. The fee to buy AVAX on Binance is 0.1% which is the lowest fee within the industry.
If you do not have a Binance account already you can set up one here.
Send AVAX from Binance to MetaMask
Step 1: Copy your AVAX address from MetaMask
This can easily be done by clicking on the duplicate symbol next to the wallet address. Make sure you are connected to the Avalanche Network on your MetaMask.
Step 2: Log in to your Binance account
Navigate to the login page of Binance and fill in your credentials. Then press 'Log In'.
Step 3: Navigate to your fiat and spot wallet
After you have logged in to your Binance account you will need to navigate to your fiat and spot wallet where your AVAX wallet is located.
Click on 'Wallet' to expand it. Then click on 'Fiat and Spot'.
Step 4: Click on 'Withdraw' next to 'AVAX'
After you have navigated to 'Fiat and Spot' you will see an overview of your fiat and spot balance. Under 'Crypto Balance' search for 'AVAX'. Here you will be able to buy, deposit, withdraw, trade, earn, or convert your AVAX. Click on 'Withdraw'.
Step 5: Send your AVAX to MetaMask
Now you are on the AVAX withdrawal page. Make sure that the selected coin is 'AVAX'.
Then paste your AVAX address from MetaMask (Step 1) in the 'Address' field.
Select the 'AVAX C-Chain' network from the 'Network' dropdown box.
Enter the amount of AVAX that you want to send to your MetaMask wallet.
Lastly, click on 'Withdraw' to send your AVAX from Binance to MetaMask.
