Crypto exchange Coinbase announced on Thursday that users can now use Apple Pay to purchase crypto assets on its platform, with Google Pay integration to follow.
“Today we’re introducing new and seamless ways to enable crypto buys with linked debit cards to Apple Pay and Google Pay, and instant cashouts up to $100,000 per transaction available 24/7,” said a Coinbase blog post on Thursday.
“If you already have a Visa or Mastercard debit card linked in your Apple Wallet, Apple Pay will automatically appear as a payment method when you’re buying crypto with Coinbase on an Apple Pay-supported iOS device or Safari web browser,” the Coinbase blog post mentioned.
Coinbase expects to enable Google Pay functionality “later this fall.”
In the same post, Coinbase announced “instant cashouts via Real Time Payments (RTP), enabling customers in the U.S. with linked bank accounts to instantly and securely cash out up to $100,000 per transaction.”
Digital asset exchange Gemini made a similar move back in April, integrating Google Pay and Apple Pay cash transfer options on its platform.
