PancakeSwap is a decentralized exchange that works similar to Ethereum. It enables cryptocurrency exchanges without having to use an intermediary, such as an online exchange, to facilitate the transfer. The platform's goal is to make trading more efficient while protecting traders from scammers.
Unfortunately, you may experience issues finding a vendor when using PancakeSwap. Let's see why this problem occurs and what you can do about it.
What does "No supplier found" mean in PancakeSwap?
If you see the error "No provider was found" in PancakeSwap, it means that the platform has encountered a connection problem with your Trust Wallet. Trust Wallet is a platform that encrypts the keys to your cryptocurrency wallet, making your crypto transactions safer.
This login failure usually occurs when you try to use PancakeSwap on a browser other than the DApp browser provided by Trust Wallet. You will receive this error because Trust Wallet is not compatible with standard browsers, such as Microsoft Edge or Google Chrome. These browsers tend not to support decentralized apps, such as PancakeSwap and Trust Wallet.
Alternatively, the problem may be that you simply did not activate the DApps browser on Trust Wallet.
In any case, this error means that you will not be able to perform any cryptocurrency transactions until you repair the connection.
How to correct this error
There are two potential fixes for this error, one of which may allow you to continue using your regular browser while using the PancakeSwap platform. The fixes are as follows:
Use DApps to connect
Using DApps requires downloading Trust Wallet, setting up an account and activating the browser. Here are the steps:
- Head to Google Play or Apple's app store and download Trust Wallet.
- Install and open Trust Wallet and use it to create a new cryptocurrency wallet.
- Check your recovery phase and wait. After verification, your new wallet will be created.
With Trust Wallet installed on your mobile device, you can now focus on activating and installing the DApps browser:
- Open your standard web browser, such as Chrome or Safari, on your mobile device.
- Enter the following in the search bar of the browser – “trust://browser_enable”
- Press the "Open" button and the page should open in Trust Wallet.
- With the page open in Trust Wallet, your DApps browser should now be ready to use on the platform.
Now that you've enabled DApps, it's time to connect Trust Wallet to PancakeSwap using the new browser:
- Open Trust Wallet and locate the "Browser" icon at the bottom of the screen. It should look like four small squares grouped into a larger square.
- Tap the icon to open the DApps browser.
- Scroll down in the browser to locate the "Popular" header. You should see the PancakeSwap app under this header.
- Take the “PancakeSwap” option to open the platform in DApps.
- Locate the "Connect" button at the top of PancakeSwap. Note that you will only see this button if you have not connected your Trust Wallet to PancakeSwap.
- Tap "Connect" and a dialog with several options should appear. Scroll through them to locate the “TrustWallet” option and tap on it.
With this, you have connected TrustWallet to PancakeSwap using DApps Browser. You should find that the “No Providers Found” error is gone and you can now trade tokens using the PancakeApp exchange.
Use PancakeSwap as a browser
If you don't want to use DApps as your browser, you may be able to resolve the "No provider was found" issue by using PancakeSwap itself as your browser. You will still need to download and activate Trust Wallet before following these steps:
- Open the mobile browser you normally use.
- Head to the PancakeSwap website and locate the "Connect" button. It should be at the top right of the page.
- Press the button and the “Connect to Wallet” dialog box should appear. Scroll down the list of wallets to find the “WalletConnect” option.
- Tap “WalletConnect” and you should open another list of wallets you can connect to.
- Scroll down this list to find the "Trust" option and tap it.
- A pop-up window will appear asking you to open the webpage using Trust Wallet. Press the "Open" button to do so.
- You should see another "Connect" button on the Trust Wallet page. If you don't, force close the platform and then reopen it.
- Press the "Connect" button.
By following these steps, you connect your Trust Wallet to PancakeSwap. To confirm that it worked, open PancakeSwap and check the top right corner. You will see your Trust Wallet address. Attempt a transaction and you should find that the "No vendors were found" error has disappeared.
It's all in the browser
Attempting to transact via PancakeSwap using a normal web browser will not work. Unfortunately, most standard browsers are not compatible with decentralized locations, resulting in the "No provider was found" error. Fortunately, you can solve this problem by using the DApps browser or by turning PancakeSwap into a browser itself.
