How to pay your bills with crypto
Paying practically any bill with crypto is fast and simple, and you can get started by following a few simple steps.
Step 1: Get the BitPay app and set up your wallet
Download the free app for Android and iOS devices. The BitPay Wallet is self-custody, meaning that you, and only you, control your funds. Easily create a wallet to pay your bills or import wallets/keys created in other popular self-custody wallet applications like Metamask, Exodus Trust Wallet and Coinbase Wallet.
Alternatively, you can pay bills from your browser on the BitPay website. Log into your BitPay account and navigate to the Bill Pay tab from within the personal dashboard.
Step 2: Connect your accounts
In the BitPay app, tap the “Pay” tab and then “Bills”. If you are a new BitPay user, you’ll be prompted to provide basic KYC information. Your information is used to connect your billing accounts to your crypto wallet.
If using the BitPay website, follow instructions on the Bill Pay tab to add your bills.
Step 3: Pay your bills with your favorite cryptocurrency
Once your bills are connected, provider, due date, balance, and more bill details are displayed in the app. Select your bills, tap “Pay Bill” and enter the amount you’d like to pay. Then choose your preferred cryptocurrency and confirm the payment. It is that easy.
