I have seen now i can use zksync for lower fees

I see in the documentation of how to start using it and I have seen i have to pay a fee before startin to receive the payouts but where do i have to pay it?

Same question I had. My MetaMask wallet is connected but what now after configuring my StorageNode?

you have to enter on zkwallet and conect your wallet to the zksync wallet and then you have to pay a fee to be ablee to receive the payments but this last part i dont know how to do it

Hello @cmccallu,
Welcome to the forum!

@cmccallu @Gerarardit
You would need to add operator.wallet-features: ["zksync"] option to your config.yaml (see https://documentation.storj.io/resources/faq/where-can-i-find-a-config.yaml) and restart the storagenode.

When you receive your payout via zkSync, you can go to the https://wallet.zksync.io/ and connect your wallet. You will see a balance of STORJ there.
When you want to withdraw tokens to L1 (Ethereum), you will click the Withdraw button and specify amount of STORJ to transfer. By default it offer to use the same address on L1, as your address on L2, but you can change it to the deposit of the exchange for example and confirm withdraw.
There you will pay almost the same fee as if you transfer from one address to another on L1:

But you will pay it in STORJ tokens unlike L1 where you would pay in ETH.
If you never registered your address on zkSync, they will take 11000 gas in STORJ tokens for one time registration.
You also can try on testnet Rinkeby with testSTORJ tokens to make yourself familiar with the technology:

If you post your address, I’ll send you testSTORJ on Rinkeby via zkSync. The address for wallet on Rinkeby is https://rinkeby.zksync.io/account

Hello, I use MEW for my wallet. zkSync does not support this wallet. If I configure to use L2 payment with the existing eth address on MEW what will happen? I see an option to create a new wallet on metamask and sync it with zkSync, however it will give me a new eth address right. If I change my settings to use the new address, what will happen to the funds linked to the old address? Please let me know.

You can import your MEW wallet to the Metamask with the same secret phrase or private key and connect it to zkSync.

You can also create a new address in Metamask if you want and replace it in the node configuration: How do I change values like wallet address or storage capacity? - Node Operator

@Alexey thanks for the reply. I was going in loops and unable to find how to integrate MEW to zkSync. Do you have any pointer for it?

You can import your MEW wallet to the Metamask with the same secret phrase or private key. The Metamask can work with https://wallet.zksync.io/
The MEW cannot be connected https://wallet.zksync.io/, it is not compatible with Web3
