Can a contract pay gas fee's

Hi All,

Can a contract be used for paying the gas fee's for specific things like minting NFT's?

I am in the middle of developing a smart contract and been asked about the minting fee's, I know I can lazy mint these nft's and have the buyer pay the gas fee's but what about the contract if it has enough funds? could this be possible at all?

Sort of! There is a project called OpenGSN - the gas station network. Originally an OZ initiative IIRC. You can create a "paymaster" contract to fund gas for transactions on your main contract. Then your dapp can use a library to route the transaction through the GSN. The user experience is that they send a signed transaction, but no funds are due.
