Easily Purchase Crypto in the BitPay Wallet App Using a Bank Card Through Simplex
BitPay, the world’s largest provider of Bitcoin and cryptocurrency payment services, today announced a collaboration with on/offramp market leader, Simplex to enable European users to buy crypto seamlessly with no credit or debit card fees from within the BitPay Wallet app. The promotion allows users to quickly and easily buy crypto fee-free using their debit or credit cards for up to 45 days. Included in the promotion are top coins such as Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ether, as well as PAX and BUSD. For consumers looking to get in before it’s too late, now is the time to act.
“We want to encourage first-time buyers to purchase crypto and experience first hand how easy it is to purchase, store and spend crypto through the BitPay Wallet app integration with Simplex,” said Stephen Pair, CEO with BitPay. “BitPay wants to make it simple to adopt crypto, and by working with Simplex, we can eliminate the need for users to navigate to a cryptocurrency exchange to fund the wallet and start living a life on crypto.”
Typically, buying crypto involves fees to make a purchase with a debit or credit card, however for a limited time BitPay is waiving those fees for users. Europeans interested in buying bitcoin or other cryptos or wanting to increase their crypto holdings can save on this current fee promotion. From within the BitPay Wallet app, users can also open and fund an account with Simplex Banking, a method that enables seamless and fast local payment methods. This unique solution gives consumers the power to purchase without limits and truly capitalize on market highs.

We’re excited to work alongside our friends at BitPay to help anyone, anywhere enter into the crypto space,” said Nimrod Lehavi, Founder and CEO of Simplex. “Together, Simplex and BitPay are growing the ecosystem with a seamless on/off-ramping solution for every user.”
