Receiving payments – TREZOR User Manual 1
Once you’ve initialized your TREZOR, your wallet is ready to be used. You should now see a screen like this:
By clicking on “Account #1” you will see an empty Transactions tabulator.
Now it’s time to transfer your bitcoins to the safety of your TREZOR. Select the Receive tabulator to get your very first TREZOR bitcoin address. A bitcoin address is a long string of numbers and letters. If you are transferring bitcoins from a mobile wallet, scan the QR code shown next to the address.
Demonstrate on TREZOR¶
Observe out for the “eye” icon! It might help you avoid phishing attempts aimed at substituting your true receiving address. Wij call this feature “Vertoning on TREZOR” spil it displays the receiving address on your device.
Always make sure the receiving address is created by your TREZOR and not by a hacker who tricked your browser into displaying a fake webstek with a fake receiving address.
Here’s an example of what you see on your TREZOR display after clicking “Show on TREZOR”.
You may also use the “More please +” button to create more receiving addresses. Why would you want more addresses? Say you use the very first address to receive your salary. You can tell when your employer has paid you because you receive bitcoins on that address. Now, you want to sell your lawnmower to Bob. How do you know when Bob has paid you and which payment came from Bob? You can create a fresh bitcoin address specially for Bob. When bitcoins come into that address you know that its Bob paying you and not your employer.

Confirming that a payment has bot received¶
When someone makes a payment to you, you will see a green (incoming) transaction emerge ter the transactions pane.
At very first, the transaction will be marked spil “unconfirmed”. If a transaction is petite and from a known person, it is safe to assume that the transaction will be confirmed by the transaction network successfully. However, if the transaction is large or coming from an untrusted party you should be more careful and wait for the transaction to get “confirmed”. Transactions can take up to 15 minutes to go through totally. When they do so, you will see the “unconfirmed” text substituted by the date and time of the transaction’s completion:
Once a transaction is confirmed, the bitcoins are yours. There is no risk of a payment reversal or a chargeback.
