Hi everyone I am getting the error below when I try to write to a Uniswap function using web3 in python. I can call any function, but I cannot get python to write to uniswap except to add liquidity. Is there something I am doing wrong? Thanks in advance.

MESSAGE ERROR

insufficient input amount means the router contract didn't receive the expected amount of your inbound token (WETH)

do you have enough eth in your calling address to support the call?

  • Yes I have a sufficient amount of WETH. Is there anything I have to approve prior to calling the function? I notice that the Uniswap documentation has a three part process. Additionally, I can write to the Uniswap contract from Etherscan, but I notice it has one additional parameter. When I plug it into python, I get an error saying it is not the right amount.

This code should help you. It is a complete swap transaction from Uniswap.

from web3 import Web3
import json
import time

# Define the node URL and connection
node_url = "YOUR_NODE_URL"

web3 = Web3(Web3.HTTPProvider(node_url))

# verify the connection is successful
if web3.isConnected():
    print("Connection Successful")
else:
    print("Connection Failed")

# reconstruct contract in python
router_address = "0x7a250d5630B4cF539739dF2C5dAcb4c659F2488D"
uniswap_abi =
