If you’re Google pay user with a coin base account deep into cryptocurrencies, Google has now made it possible to integrate a coinbase virtual card to a Google Pay account for wireless payments.
In an official blog post published by Coinbase in confirmation to the new development between the company and Google payment service over a week that its virtual and physical cards are now supported by Google and Apple Payment service.
How To Apply For Coinbase Card
However, the Visa debit card is yet to be made available to everyone though if you are a user with an existing active Coinbase account and trade regularly and intend getting the physical coinbase Visa card, you will have to join a waitlist of other users here in order to obtain the card.
After obtaining the card, you will be able to use your Coinbase Card with Apple and Google Payment service. In a lighter note, its further easier to spend in cryptocurrency on gateways that support such payments.
Beginning from this week, we’ll invite select US customers off the waitlist to start earning up to 4% back in crypto rewards. If you’ve been on the waitlist for Coinbase Card and from the US, you’ll soon receive an invitation to apply. however for users who are not can simply proceed to apply from here
Adding Card To Google Pay
After Approval for the Coinbase card users will then be able to link their cards to their Google Pay and Apple Pay account right before your physical card even arrives. Transactions will just appear on your account just as they would with a “normal credit or debit” card issued by a bank or credit union.
Unfortunally, this development is only open to users who reside in the US and dominating a Coinbase and Google or Apple Pay account, while selected customers will be getting a 4% cashback in crypto rewards for all eligible purchases, there is a 2.5% charge fee for each and every payment done with the Coinbase card.
Meanwhile, looking at the nature of cryptocurrencies, it might not be wise to actually integrate this and begin transacting in a specific digital currency so as to avoid it exploding in value. With that noted, users are still free to give it a trial by adding their Coinbase card to their Google or Apple Pay account.
