How to receive a payment on my Ledger Nano or HW.1? Where can I find my Bitcoin address?

If your Nano (or HW.1) is not initialized go to and follow instructions.

Once your device is initialized:
To find your Bitcoin address (required to receive a payment),
1/ Connect your Ledger device 
2/ Launch your Bitcoin Chrome application
3/ Enter your PIN code and wait until the end of synchronization
4/ When your wallet opens, click on "Receive", a popup opens
5/ Copy the "Bitcoin address" which is displayed

Please note that your Ledger wallet generates a new address each time you want to receive a payment, thanks to the Hierarchical Deterministic (HD) support. Each address generated by your wallet is yours forever, you can use them several times or just once at your convenience, it won't cause problems - even if it may be safer to use each address only once.

6/ Paste this address where you are required to (in the wallet where your coins are)

While receiving payments, your Ledger device can be disconnected as your transactions are tracked on the Blockchain. These transactions will be synchronized on your wallet when you open it.
