BitPay announces support to add BitPay Card to Apple Pay
Stephen Pair, Co-founder, President and CEO at BitPay

Blockchain payment technology provider BitPay has announced enabling US cardholders of the BitPay Prepaid Mastercard with the provision to add their card to Apple Wallet and spend with Apple Pay.

BitPay cardholders with Apple Pay can now make secure purchases in stores, in apps, and online. Additionally, customers waiting to receive their plastic card can add their virtual card to Apple Wallet via the BitPay Wallet app and immediately start spending. 

“We have thousands of BitPay Wallet app customers using the BitPay Card who are always looking for new places and ways to spend their crypto. Adding Apple Pay and soon Google and Samsung Pay makes it easy and convenient to use the BitPay Card in more places from day-to-day items to luxury purchases,” said CEO Stephen Pair.

BitPay was founded in 2011, while Bitcoin was still in its infancy. The firm continues to innovate its global blockchain solutions to make paying with Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies faster, seamless and safer than ever before. Its wallet app is built to enable customers to manage and spend Bitcoin, and also turn it into dollars and spend with the BitPay Card. Recently, the firm announced WalletConnect integration into its Wallet app.

For power blockchain users, the Wallet app supports an array of options to buy and store crypto and make online payments. Users can instantly purchase gift cards from top retailers in-store and online. The BitPay Card enables customers to convert cryptocurrency into fiat currency instantly, which is then loaded onto the card and can be spent anywhere Mastercard debit is accepted. Customers can also use the cards online for purchases and to withdraw cash from ATMs.

BitPay builds powerful, enterprise-grade tools for crypto acceptance and spending. The FinTech is developing blockchain payment technology to transform how businesses and people send, receive, and store money worldwide. Its Wallet app supports Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ether and four dollar-pegged stablecoins, USDC, GUSD, PAX and BUSD. The firm has plans to add support for Google Pay and Samsung Pay later this quarter.
