BitPay Adds Buy Amazon Gift Cards Feature to its Bitcoin Wallet

Users of the Copay wallet can now buy Amazon gift cards with Bitcoin.

Good news for users of the Copay Bitcoin wallet – you now have a new way to access all the millions of products on Amazon and some of its affiliated websites. BitPay Inc, has announced a new feature on the latest version of the Copay wallet – using bitcoin to purchase Amazon Gift Cards directly within the app.

With the new feature Copay users can purchase Amazon gift cards for the exact USD value they need for a purchase, starting at $1 and increasing in penny increments all the way up to $500. The codes that represent the value are stored on the Copay app, but are not backed up with the bitcoin wallet backups – making them more suited for making an immediate purchase than for holding long term.

Back in June Worldcore, a Czech Republic-licensed payment institution, began accepting bitcoin payments thanks to a partnership with BitPay. The digital banking firm offers its over 7,000 customers the ability to use the digital currency to top up their accounts and prepaid debit cards.
