Cryptocurrency payments platform BitPay announced on Friday its prepaid Mastercard now supports Apple Pay. BitPay reported the digital payment option is available from within the BitPay app to the millions of Apple Pay customers and billions of iPhone users.
“Users can add the BitPay Card to Apple Pay and make purchases wherever Apple Pay is accepted globally. In addition, customers without a plastic card can add a virtual card to Apple Wallet via the BitPay app and are able to start spending immediately without having to wait for the physical card to arrive. From buying music and online games to paying for a ride, a pizza delivery, or a new pair of sneakers, using the BitPay Card in the Apple Wallet is a quick, secure and safe way to pay for everyday and luxury purchases.”
BitPay also noted that support for Samsung Pay and Google Pay is planned for later this quarter.
Founded in 2011, BitPay claims to be a pioneer and leader in global blockchain payments and supports payments from Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, XRP and ETH, as well as four dollar-pegged stablecoins, USDC, GUSD, PAX, and BUSD.
