Need help paying a BitPay invoice? Don't know how to pay to a payment URL? Check out our payment guide.
BitPay invoices only work with wallets that are updated to work with Payment Protocol. Payment Protocol makes sure the Bitcoin or Bitcoin Cash you send is exactly the right amount. It also makes sure you include a high enough miner fee for the Bitcoin or Bitcoin Cash network to confirm your transaction.
With Payment Protocol, you don’t need to worry about failed payments, delayed orders, or dealing with refunds. Payment Protocol also adds new security to payments, protecting you from sending payments to imposters or attackers. Learn more about why BitPay chose Payment Protocol wallets for payments.
