RenVM Support Tutorial & Template
A guide to resolving RenVM support issues.
Most common issues are typically caused by user error (UE). EG: -User exiting the bridge before submitting the ETH or BSC transaction. -Closing web-browser and deleting history. -Not having ETH or BNB to pay for the TX.
While we created the RenVM UX Best Practices to mitigate most of the common pitfalls some users still have issues, so the Ren team wanted to provide a few simple steps for dealing with support issues as a 3rd party integrator.

Step #1 | Address Common UE

The way to solve these boil down to sending them back to the bridge UI to submit the ETH TX, and/or restarting their browser/computer to solve MetaMask not picking up the TX. Troubleshooting questions to help the user:
1) Have you been prompted by your MetaMask to sign an ETH or BSC TX? If not, try to restart your computer and then visit the UI with the wallet you originally used (MetaMask, etc). 2) Check your MetaMask activity to ensure no pending TX is there. 3) Make sure you added renBTC, etc into MetaMask (as a custom token). 4) Try hard-refreshing the webpage (F5).

Step #2 | Push the RenVM TX through manually

Since most user issue reports you will receive will likely be something at the UI level, it is typically incumbent on the Bridge owner to assist users with any issues (via the above steps) but if there is an issue, and step #1 does not solve the issue, one can manually triggering the TX:
To do so, follow the below directions:

2) Connect wallet that the order was placed on and input the RenVM TX hash

3) Submit the TX via wallet and use “Fast GAS” so there are no issues.
