BitPay, a cryptocurrency payment service provider, has announced that its prepaid card now supports Apple Pay for in-store, in-app, and online payments.
Users of the service can now add the BitPay Prepaid Mastercard to their Apple Pay wallets. The card allows users to convert cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin into spendable fiat currency, and then load it onto the prepaid card for payments.
The BitPay wallet app itself lets users buy, store, and pay various cryptocurrencies. It currently supports Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ether, and four stablecoins.
"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 BitPay CEO Stephen Pair.
To add a BitPay card to Apple Wallet, users will need to download the most recent version of the app from the App Store.
