Get a wallet:

First you’ll need a bitcoin wallet – an app that lets you receive, hold, and spend bitcoin.

It is important that you use a true bitcoin wallet app that automatically calculates sufficient miner fees. These fees help to ensure timely confirmation for your transaction on the Bitcoin network.

We recommend the open source BitPay bitcoin wallet app. It’s a great option for paying BitPay invoices because it dynamically calculates sufficient miner fees. It also supports major advances in bitcoin security and ease of use.

Move bitcoin into your spending wallet

If you don’t yet have bitcoin in your bitcoin wallet yet, you’ll need to buy some.

Bitcoin exchanges are available all over the world, allowing users to convert any currency into and out of bitcoin. Every country and region is different, so you’ll want to do some research before choosing an exchange.

For individuals in the United States, the BitPay app provides a simple integration with Glidera, and Coinbase allowing users to buy bitcoin directly from the app.

Exchanges and accounts do not send your bitcoin payments immediately, so they are not good for paying BitPay merchants. To avoid payment problems, first withdraw your bitcoin from the exchange to your spending bitcoin wallet before attempting to spend it.

Make a payment

Making a bitcoin payment is fast, convenient, and extremely secure.

To make a payment, you won’t need to enter any sensitive card information. Instead, you’ll simply send the payment from your wallet app.

Remember to send your payment during the 15-minute payment window. BitPay only guarantees the fixed BTC price for this time period. Do not send payments to expired invoices.

There are several ways to pay a BitPay invoice from your bitcoin wallet.
