Which wallets work for a BitPay payment

BitPay Payment Protocol (BIP-70), and their Users’ Bitcoin Payment Experience

BitPay donations only work with wallets that are updated to work with Payment Protocol (BIP-70)

Top benefits of using Payment Protocol (BIP-70):

  • Payment Protocol makes sure you send exactly the right amount of Bitcoin or Bitcoin Cash.
  • With Payment Protocol you don’t need to worry about failed payments, delayed orders, or refunds.
  • Payment Protocol adds new security to payments, protecting you from sending payments to imposters or attackers.
  • Payment Protocol makes sure you include a high enough miner fee for the Bitcoin or Bitcoin Cash network to confirm your transaction.
