MetaMask now supporting crypto transactions with Apple Pay

Friday 1 April 2022 15:03 CET | News

Crypto wallet MetaMask has now added support for cryptocurrency purchases on iOS with Apple Pay.

Previously users would need to send Ethereum (ETH) or other cryptos to their MetaMask wallet that they purchased from a crypto exchange. In addition to debit card support, MetaMask Mobile now has Visa and MasterCard credit card (Apple Pay). 

There are still third-party payment processors involved – Wyre and Transak – which are crypto-friendly payment gateways. This does make it easier however for potential new retail investors to buy cryptocurrency safely on their smartphone.

Director of ConsenSys – who developed MetaMask – James Beck commented that the upgrade aims to expand the ways in which users can buy and convert crypto within the app itself without having to leave it.
