You Can Now Use Apple Pay To Buy Goods Against Cryptocurrency Thanks To Coinbase Card
Coinbase is now making it easier than ever to pay for things using cryptocurrency after it announced that its Coinbase Card is now good for Apple Pay transactions.
That means you’ll be able to buy things at stores and online, using crypto, as if it was just any other kind of currency.
The Coinbase Card works just like any other debit card, which means you can only spend what you have in your wallet. There is one catch though – you can’t just ask for a card and get one. There’s a waiting list that you’re going to have to deal with first.
You can now use your Coinbase Card with Apple Pay and Google Pay to make it even easier to spend crypto¹ at home and on the go. Starting this week, we’ll invite select customers off the waitlist to begin earning up to 4% back in crypto rewards². If you’re already on the waitlist for Coinbase Card, you’ll soon receive an invitation to apply. If you’re not on the waitlist, join here.
Setting up for Apple Pay is as simple as you’d expect and you’ll soon be using Bitcoin to pay for your lunch like it ain’t no big deal. So long as you get selected from that waitlist, of course.
You can learn all the ins and outs of how the Coinbase Card works in the announcement blog post, too.
