To open an NBA Top Shot account, you must be at least 18 years old, and you must reside in a participating country.
There are two ways to start your NBA Top Shot account.
- Click the blue Sign Up button in the upper right corner of the NBA Top Shot homepage.
- Attempt a purchase in the Marketplace.
If you are signed in to your Google account, you will be asked to verify your Google login.
- If you are not signed in to a Google account, or you have multiple Google accounts active in your browser, you will be asked to select the Google account you would like to use.
- If you do not have a Google account, you will be prompted to create one. A Google account is required to open an NBA Top Shot account.
Next, select your country and date of birth and create a username if you'd like. If you are under 18 or we cannot offer NBA Top Shot in your country, you will not be able to create an account.
Once your eligibility is confirmed, based on your age and residence, you will be prompted to create a Dapper account by entering your name and email address and creating a password. The password must be at least eight characters. Dapper is the payment platform for NBA Top Shot purchases.
When you have successfully registered for NBA Top Shot and Dapper, you will be prompted to complete our identity check process. For more information about that process, please see the article Understanding the Identity Check
