If you want to get MATIC in your MetaMask wallet there are different ways to achieve that. You can buy MATIC on a decentralized exchange (DEX). However, this needs several extra steps that make this whole process more complicated.
A better alternative is to buy MATIC from Binance and send it to MetaMask. The fee to buy MATIC 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 MATIC from Binance to MetaMask
Step 1: Copy your MATIC 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 Polygon 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 MATIC wallet is located.
Click on 'Wallet' to expand it. Then click on 'Fiat and Spot'.
Step 4: Click on 'Withdraw' next to 'MATIC'
After you have navigated to 'Fiat and Spot' you will see an overview of your fiat and spot balance. Under 'Crypto Balance' search for 'MATIC'. Here you will be able to buy, deposit, withdraw, trade, earn, or convert your MATIC. Click on 'Withdraw'.
Step 5: Send your MATIC to MetaMask
Now you are on the MATIC withdrawal page. Make sure that the selected coin is 'MATIC'.
Then paste your MATIC address from MetaMask (Step 1) in the 'Address' field.
Select the 'MATIC Polygon' network from the 'Network' dropdown box.
Enter the amount of MATIC that you want to send to your MetaMask wallet.
