Crypto payment processor BitPay has announced a new promotion where residents of the United States can buy crypto seamlessly and securely with no credit or debit card fees from within the BitPay Wallet app.

In a press release, BitPay said that it teamed with Israeli payments firm Simplex to allow BitPay Wallet app users to quickly and easily buy crypto fee-free using a debit or credit card, the BitPay Debit Card or Apple Pay for a limited time.

“For US consumers who want to buy bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies for the first time, this new campaign is a fast, safe and secure way to get started,” said Stephen Pair, CEO with BitPay. “BitPay wants to accelerate adoption of crypto and enable more consumers to live life on crypto. Working with Simplex, we’ve made it simple to make purchases by using a familiar app experience and eliminating the need for users to navigate to a cryptocurrency exchange to fund the wallet.”

The BitPay Wallet App makes it easy to send and receive crypto, buy crypto from within the app, check the price of crypto and securely store funds. Users can instantly buy gift cards from hundreds of top retailers in store and online with Bitcoin (BTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Dogecoin (DOGE), Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), Shiba Inu (SHIB) Wrapped Bitcoin (WBTC), as well as five USD-pegged stable coins BUSD, DAI, GUSD, USDP, and USDC.

US residents interested in buying bitcoin or other cryptos or wanting to increase their crypto holdings can save on fees through this promotion. This unique solution gives consumers the power to purchase without limits and truly capitalize on market highs.

To buy crypto through this promo, first open the BitPay Wallet App or download it from the App Store (iOS) or Google Play Store (Android), Windows 10 and Linux. Click on Buy Crypto and enter the amount in US Dollars, select the crypto to purchase and use Simplex as the payment option. It is that quick and easy.

For experienced crypto users, the BitPay Wallet app is a secure, non-custodial open-source wallet app that includes a full featured non-bank financial services solution. Multi-factor security leverages private key encryption, PINs, and biometric authentication for enhanced security.
