The paper wallet likely has a QR code which you can use to import it in your Copay or BitPay wallet, if it is compatible. Most paper wallets use the same simple format.
Both the BitPay and Copay wallets can sweep a paper wallet.
If you have already created a BTC or BCH wallet, please follow the steps below to import your paper wallet:
- Tap on the scan icon on the bottom right of the home page of the app
- Scan the private key QR code for your paper wallet with your device's camera
- Tap on the `Sweep paper wallet` option when the prompt
- Select and confirm which wallet to sweep the funds to and tap `Sweep`
If successful, “Sweep Completed” message will appear. If you are unable to sweep the wallet into your BitPay or Copay wallet, you should receive an "invalid QR code" or similar error message.
Note: We do not support testnet paper wallets within Copay or BitPay Wallet.
