BitPay, the world’s largest provider of Bitcoin and cryptocurrency payment services, announced that it has enhanced its service to make it easier for Coinbase users to spend crypto including USD Coin, Bitcoin, Ethereum and other cryptocurrencies at BitPay enabled merchants directly from a Coinbase account.
BitPay’s enhancements allow consumers to make payments directly from the Coinbase account to BitPay merchants, eliminating the peer to peer movement of funds. The phased rollout starts with transactions under $1,000. Also, in one month, users will be able to pay BitPay merchants with their Coinbase account directly from within their BitPay Wallet App.
“Customers who have a Coinbase account are looking for a fast, secure and easy way to pay for goods and services with crypto globally now have additional options through BitPay enabled merchants,” said Sean Rolland, Director of Product at BitPay. “Integration between Coinbase and BitPay lets users pay directly from their Coinbase account, opening up new global businesses opportunities to accept and pay with crypto.”
