Coinbase has announced to support Apple Pay and Google Pay with its Coinbase Card, starting this week.
Coinbase Card is a debit card so signing up won’t impact your credit score and the application fees are free. Using Coinbase Card with Apple Pay or Google Pay can earn you up to four percent back in “crypto rewards” while shopping.
If you are already on the Coinbase Card waitlist, then you will soon receive an email invitation to apply. After the card is approved, you can start making purchases using Apple Pay and Google Pay even without the physical card on hand. You can apply to be on the waitlist, if not already.
Here is how you can set up the Coinbase Card:
If you’re a Google Pay user, you can add your Coinbase Card from the Google Pay app. If you’re an Apple Pay user, you can add your card from the Apple Wallet app or from within the Coinbase app. On the iPhone, Apple Pay is easy to set up: simply open the Wallet app, tap +, and follow the steps to add your card.
Within the Coinbase app, you’ll have the option to add your card to Apple Pay as soon as you’re approved for your card. You can also add your card to Apple Pay within settings: from your card home, tap Manage then tap Add to Apple Wallet.
