World’s largest Bitcoin provider BitPay adds support for Apple Pay
Support for Google Pay and Samsung Pay is planned for later this quarter.
BitPay has announced about providing its BitPay Prepaid Mastercard with Apple Pay. Cardholders of the BitPay Mastercard can now add their card to Apple Wallet and spend with Apple Pay. Support for Google Pay and Samsung Pay is yet to roll out; hopefully by the end of this quarter.
BitPay is the world’s largest provider of Bitcoin and cryptocurrency payment services. Users can now make purchases in stores, in apps, and online by just adding the physical or virtual version of the BitPay Prepaid Mastercard to Apple’s Wallet app. The Mastercard helps customers convert cryptocurrency into fiat currency and then load it to the card and make a purchase.
To use the service, you will need to update your BitPay app to version 12.1.0. Not to forget, the BitPay Prepaid Mastercard is issued to eligible US citizens only.
