We’ve worked hard to make the BitPay and Copay wallets powerful tools for Bitcoin (BTC) users who want to use their Bitcoin in their purchases. With the recent launch of our Bitcoin Cash (BCH) payment processing, we’re bringing the same tools and integrations to Bitcoin Cash users.
Today we’re excited to share that you can turn your Bitcoin Cash into Amazon.com Gift Cards* and Mercado Livre gift cards in the BitPay wallet.
Use Bitcoin Cash to Purchase Amazon.com Gift Cards*
Since 2016, our wallet users have been able to turn their Bitcoin (BTC) into Amazon.com Gift Cards* in-app. This was an important step in our goal to make Bitcoin more usable for more people in more places.
Now, you can also turn Bitcoin Cash (BCH) into Amazon.com Gift Cards* just as easily.
