Bitcoin (BTC) Wallets
You can use any of the popular Payment Protocol-compatible wallets below to pay a BitPay bitcoin (BTC) invoice. If you don’t have one of these wallets yet, simply create a wallet (please use the most up to date version) and send some bitcoin to it.
You can use any Payment-Protocol-compatible BCH wallet with a BitPay merchant who accepts BCH. The following wallets are fully compatible. We are currently working to add more fully-compatible wallets.
You can use any Web3 wallet or wallet with a Dapp browser to pay a BitPay merchant who accepts ETH. The following wallets are tested and compatible. We are currently working to add more fully-compatible wallets. Please see our help article How do I pay an invoice from a DApp browser?
If your favorite wallet is not on this list, feel free to carefully use the invoice address to make a payment without Payment Protocol. Our goal isn’t to limit users’ wallet choices. We are working with other wallet providers in the Bitcoin ecosystem to advance adoption of the Bitcoin Payment Protocol. We created and released a simpler JSON interface for Payment Protocol which will make it easier for wallets to adopt these improvements.
Widespread adoption of Payment Protocol will immediately improve the bitcoin payment experience.
