Bitcoin payment service provider Bitpay has added support for Apple Pay. Bitpay prepaid Mastercard holders in the US can now add them to their Apple Pay app to make payments for goods and services. Bitpay says Google Pay and Samsung Pay will also be added in the near future.

Bitpay cardholders can now use Apple Pay

Bitpay announced its support for Apple Pay on Friday. US-based Bitpay debit card users can now add their Bitpay card to their Apple Pay app as a source of funding. This allows them to make online and in-store purchases using cryptocurrencies wherever Apple Pay is accepted. The announcement states:

US Bitpay Prepaid Mastercard cardholders can add their card to Apple Wallet and spend it at Apple Pay. With Apple Pay, Bitpay cardholders can make secure purchases in stores, apps and online.

The company said that while new Bitpay customers wait for their plastic card to arrive, they can add virtual cards to Apple Wallet through the Bitpay Wallet app to use Apple Pay right away.

In addition, Bitpay announced that “support for Google Pay and Samsung Pay is planned for the end of this quarter”. CEO Stephen Pair commented, “We have thousands of Bitpay wallet app customers who are using the Bitpay card and are always looking for new places and ways to spend their crypto.”

He explained:

With the addition of Apple Pay, and soon Google and Samsung Pay, it’s easy and convenient to use the Bitpay card in more places, from everyday items to luxury purchases.

The Bitpay card converts cryptocurrency into fiat currency, which can be used to pay for purchases. The wallet app supports financing with Bitcoin, Bitcoin cash and ether, as well as with four dollar stablecoins, USDC, GUSD, PAX and BUSD.
