Hey man, great video. This was made over a year ago but I was wondering did you get a card as well or just the app?
Craig Robertson (9 days ago)
Bummer man :( Are there any options you know of that we can get here in Canada?

Scott G. Lloyd (5 months ago)
You skipped a very important part of this whole thing: connecting your Coinbase account with BitPay wallets. For example, I’ve set up the wallet, connected to Coinbase — the process is a royal pain in the butt — but I still can’t access my bit coins and transfer them to my personal wallet in BitPay. There also appears to be some fee that BitPay or Coinbase is charging when you want to make a purchase.

As of January 1st Coinbase WILL NOT load to a Bitpay Wallet. They have Downgraded service. Of course, this is only for withdrawals. They are recommending bank transfers instead which will take 7 to 10 days. Of course they have NO problem with INCOMING deposits. They are happy to take in your money but not to get it back to you with any speed or reliability. Totally shady! Get your assets off of Coinbase as the situation continues to deteriorate!

Hello, question & Help Please ... Do you know how I can send funds from my personal wallet on my desktop to read on my Bitpay card balance? Bitpay is showing a bad address when you try to add funds via online, so I followed the steps it gave to use a receive address from my desktop app, only it sent the funds to my personal wallet rather than to my Bitpay card balance?

I'm going to copy and paste this part in every fucking bit pay video I see. So we need to build a card. Allow that card to communicate with trezor.. offline... Or nano.. offline.. Swipe with a card through a swiper enter your pin off line. Load funds directly from your trezor to your card for what you need for the day. Don't use these cards. Only spend bitcoins when business start loosing to amazon who excepts it they will be forced to except it as well.use your job to pay for your everyday needs or trade Bitcoin to friends and have them buy you stuff. Goddamn..

Martin Blair - Books thank you, you were very helpful
From my understanding and research it is Not advisable to keep fiat or crypto currency on ANY exchange due to the possibility of that exchange being hacked. I personally do not keep any cash or bitcoin, etc. on any exchange for longer than 15 mins. I hope this helps. I am fairly new but have taken the steps to protect my investments. Don't be alarmed. Overall this is a safe space to invest in. You just need to take a few basic precautions to protect your wealth no matter how small or large. Cheers :)

Hello I am the owner of a Bitpay card I installed their iOS app wallet and successcully linked to my Bitpay account. After that, I could check my Bitpay account inside the iOS app wich was convenient. There is a feature in the iOS app allowing us to load our Bitpay card whic I used. I sent 0.25 Bitcoin to my Bitpay account. The transaction has been confirmed but never showed up in my Bitpay account. I wanted to send an email to the company but there were NO CONTACT INFORMATION on their web site. It means that they don't allow any of their customer to send them any email. (What a bad customer service isn't it ?) Anyway, I managed to find their damn email by doing some research. I sent them an email, many times, but they never replied. Here is the transaction that never went to my Bitpay account : https://insight.bitpay.com/tx/e795ffcb6aaef077a5a0bf45c79591f1e6b1e87da128c2c19916890f19cdeabb If you have any useful advice for me, that would be nice.

Hey Ben, can I get some more help from you please? When I press the "send" button, the next screen that opens up is a "start sending bitcoin" and I have two options .... to buy bitcoin or show bitcoin address ..... no place for recipient. What am I doing wrong? If I select the buy bitcoin option, it takes me to Coinbase, then when I select buy bitcoin it says there is no payment method available. If I try to sell bitcoin from Coinbase it says "insufficient funds" when in fact there are funds in my account. HELP. Thank you.

I'm having trouble with this. I was on a site went to checkout and they didn't except CC's anymore so I had to get bitcoins and all that. So I went back to the order and checked out. It sent me to the page that shows the scan code. Well I couldn't scan it. Their was a address right above it! So I copied it and hit pay with bitcoin! From their it took me to the app. I hit my btc wallet put the amount in and hit the plus sign in the lower comer pasted that address in added the money I might have that backwards but anyway I hit send and it went threw! Well I thought. I called the company to see if they got it and he said he could see that I tried but it didn't go threw! What do i do? I was buying from a seed company and it seems I'm gonna lose about 100$ any help would be great!

hello, I imported my wallet from a paper wallet to copay. I used the import wallet option and put in my recovery phrase and password for my private key.

Any response is much appreciated. Thank you.

Hello, with the look of things you shouldn't have to stress yourself or worry about, waves or other little hindrance when mining crypto currency. I'm a miner and I invest in a mining company that mines purely Bitcoin. the fact here is that i do it effortlessly by just investing and wait to cash out to my bitcoin wallet, I think you should do same so that you won't have a reason to worry about the fluctuation and possibilities of not profiting.You can as well contact me on [email protected], so i can put you through in becoming successful and profitable.

BTC Sessions (10 months ago)
That's a good question - since I'm in Canada I don't have access to the Bitpay Visa card. If you're going overseas though I would recommend checking out Wirex or Bitwala cards. They allow for you to change your BTC into British Pounds or Euros. As long as you're buying stuff in those currencies then there are no fees other than buying the card itself and the Bitcoin network fee when you send over your coins. Much cheaper than dealing with a bank. Search for my Wirex video from a couple months ago and it should give you a better idea of how it works!

BTC Sessions (1 year ago)
Fair enough. Do you know if the problem is on Bitpay's end or on Coinbase's end? Could be either one. Just a heads up, when you connect your Coinbase account to your Bitpay wallet, it doesn't mean that you have access to the funds, it just means that you can buy Bitcoin instantly from your Bitpay wallet and have them transferred there. Anything you bought separately on the Coinbase website will only be available on your Coinbase wallet. Luckily if you prefer to use just a single platform you can just download the Coinbase wallet to your phone. You can also send your Bitcoin from your Coinbase wallet to your Bitpay wallet if you choose to.

Where do I get a wallet with a QR Code? Do I go to blockchain? Or do I have to go to coinbase? Are there others that are good and are there some that I don't have to link my bank account to? I am in the U.S. if that matters. Sorry for all of the newbie questions lol.....but this is one of the first videos (along with your ATM one I just watched) that make any sense of this and intrigue me. Thanks to anyone who comments. And thank you for the videos.
BTC Sessions (1 year ago)
Hey Jack, welcome to Bitcoin! Don't worry about the newbie questions - we were ALL there once. As far as your question goes, any wallet app will automatically generate addresses/QR codes for you. Every time you receive money it generates a new address to keep your transactions more confidential. Not to worry though, your funds will still be in the same place. The videos I recommend you check out first to start getting a handle on how wallets work, and some of the possibilities with BTC are these: Bitcoin Basics https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p-DhP6gN-9o Top 5 Things To Know https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OXQGxhYGCbc I hope this helps get you started :)

Hello Nice video ! Can you use the Bitpay debit card to buy bitcoin on Coinbase through the app?
BTC Sessions (1 year ago)
If someone is depositing directly to your Bitpay Visa then I believe it is already Bitcoin and should be accessible via your account. I could be wrong though - I'm unsure how the Bitpay or Coinbase Visa cards work because we're not able to get them up in Canada. The one I'm using right now is called Wirex. I have Bitcoin in my Wirex BTC wallet on my phone, and when I want to spend some, I can hit a button to transfer it into USD or Euros or British pounds on any of my cards. I also have the option to just send the Bitcoin anywhere, like in a regular btc wallet.
Jonas Andreasson (1 year ago)
So say if the business i work for do a direct deposit to the debit card i can use the funds to buy amazon gift card and i should be able to buy bitcoin for the usd on the card? A bit confusing
BTC Sessions (1 year ago)
To tell you the truth I'm not sure - Technically that would mean you're buying Bitcoin with Bitcoin though, and probably getting hit with some fees in between.
JaHoney100 (1 year ago)
hello Ben, how do I add paper wallet to my app?????
BTC Sessions (1 year ago)
Hey hey, it is actually quite simple with this app. All you need to do is scan the PRIVATE key (which I believe will be the QR code on the right side) and select to sweep your funds. If you've created the paper wallet with a password, Bitpay will ask you to enter it at this time. That's it!
Bori (1 year ago)
Do you have to pay Coinbase fees? Cause I know they have pretty high fees, and they process transactions in the U.K., so some banks charge an extra international transaction fee.
Oneximo Sanchez (1 year ago)
is there any fees for receiving bitcoins from another wallet to bitpay wallet ? the same question for sending. Thanks
BTC Sessions (1 year ago)
Oneximo Sanchez you only ever pay a fee as a sender, and it is actually not charged by the wallet itself. This fee goes to the Bitcoin miners, which are the people who check transactions and maintain the network. Fees can vary based on how busy the network is. Right now they can sometimes be $0.50 or $1, but as the network is scaled over time we should see those fees drastically reduced.

I have a huge doubt ...Breadwallet or Bitpay which is more secure (for iOS)?
Marcelo Odir (1 year ago)
Thank you so much!
BTC Sessions (1 year ago)
I run an android phone so I only know what my personal preference is. I like Bitpay, but a lot of people swear by Breadwallet. Either one should be just fine as long as you backup your recovery seed and store it somewhere safe. I believe you can set pin codes for both wallets as well, so you can have some added security that way. If you're holding a lot of funds then I highly recommend looking into a hardware wallet. One of the cheaper options, the Ledger Nano is only around $40 and it works like a charm.
Andrew Townley (1 year ago)
Great videos! Just sent you a small tip-out with BitPay, just to try it out and because your videos have been helpful to me. Was about to get CoPay as my first wallet, but chose BitPay for whatever reason (bought my first-ever amount of BTC at a convenience store via the LibertyX app on Feb. 12th!). Coinbase AI verification is having trouble matching my old ID pic to my currently-bearded face (no help from Support), and I'm waiting on Glidera to get set up, so it's LibertyX til then. A couple things I'm still having issues with / wondering about: (1) how to do post a wallet receive address/QR code for tip-outs when everyone says addresses shouldn't be reused? (2) Best crypto-asset trading platform (maybe you have a video on this)?
BTC Sessions (1 year ago)
Thanks so much! I got it while I was out today :) I'll try to answer your questions the best I can: 1. It's ok to receive bitcoin at an address more than once. The changing addresses built into wallets is more for anonymity's sake, but if you're posting publicly then it will already be associated with a person anyways. 2. I don't do a lot of switching between crypto assets. The only thing I ever use is Shapeshift... either on their website, or with their integrations in Jaxx and Exodus wallets. I've heard that Poloniex is the place to be for an actual crypto trading platform though! Hope this helps!
kitaki2crows (1 year ago)
I have my Coinbase account funds linked to my bank account. Do you know if purchasing via Bitpay app / Coinbase option works with that payment method? Or do app purchases only work when linked to a credit card payment method? I ask because the Coinbase app itself doesn't allow me to purchase through it, as it only seems to support purchasing via credit card method. Thanks for the videos and information! Love your channel!
BTC Sessions (1 year ago)
That's a very good question. I'm actually unsure because Coinbase within Canada only currently allows credit card purchases ever since their banking relationships fell through. It's super unfortunate, as I find it to be a pretty easy-to-use service! If I had to guess, I would say that they only allow mobile purchases through CC right now, as online banking requires more steps, logging in, etc. Thanks for commenting and watching :)

Great info - can u do a video about importing/exporting private keys from a paper wallet to blockchain.info,they updated their website and im finding it difficult to do this
Earl Bishop (1 year ago)
Hi, I would like you to create a tutorial on how to transfer funds from blockchain.info account to another bitcoin wallet such as bitpay.com or copay. I would like to know the difference between bitpay and copay wallet. You mentioned that it is own by the same people. How do I send bitcoin from a wallet in a computer desktop such as blockchain wallet to a wallet on a smartphone?
Earl Bishop (1 year ago)
Thank you for the explanation. I must say here that I am beginning to understand the method of transfering bitcoins from one wallet to another wallet. It is quite interesting.

Hey Earl, thanks for the question! I'll give you an answer here, but I'll also try to cover this in a future video for more clarification. So the basics of sending and receiving from any wallet on your phone or computer are basically the same. You will need to copy your bitcoin address from wallet, and paste it into the "send" field of whatever wallet your sending from. For example: With the Bitpay wallet in this video, you can hit the receive button at the bottom. When your QR code pops up, you can tap on it to copy your address. After you've done this, you can open your blockchain.info wallet, hit the send button at the bottom, then tap & hold on the empty field where it says "To". This should allow you to paste in your address. At that point you just specify how much money you would like to send yourself. It's basically the same idea for any wallet. Copy your address, and paste it into the "to" field of another wallet. When you scan a QR code you are doing the exact same thing without having to go through the motions of copying and pasting. It's the same address, just visually represented with that square barcode you see.

Thanks for the awesome videos. I have a question for you, if I use a hardware wallet, ie. Nano S., does it matter which wallet I use beyond that? Or are they all considered very safe because of the HW wallet? Specifically, any safety difference from Ledger's provided wallet vs GreenAddress in conjunction with the Nano s?
J.B. Fraser (1 year ago)
This may be a really dumb question but with Green Address there's a bitcoin url and an address. Is the bitcoin url the public one I would use to receive? BTW I'm super new to this , I haven't even purchased any bitcoin yet(still kinda nervous of the process). Also, I'm in Calgary too bro
BTC Sessions (1 year ago)
With your Nano S it should not matter what wallet you use it in conjunction with. I use the Chrome extension, but I have also now paired it with Mycelium on my phone. At that point it is really just user preference. I haven't tried GreenAddress, but I've heard good things! If you try it, let me know what you think.

When bitcoin is transferred into bitpay, does the amount lock in or does it fluctuate with the market

Great work on this video, Ben! Thanks for making this great guide to getting started with the BitPay wallet app (and for making cool videos, in general).

BTC Sessions so when u buy BTC through the Bitpay app u don’t have to wait like a week for it to show up in your wallet, like how it takes a week to show up when you buy it through the exchange?

bitpay is trash
John E (1 year ago)
My decision to use Copay was made in large part due to not only the video itself but as well as the developer's response!

BitPay thanks so much! Glad to hear you guys enjoy my channel... It comes as a huge compliment!

How to become bitcoin trader? Exactly like Bitcoin, multiple digital currencies exist in the marketplace. So if you prefer to buy a few other currencies which aren`t available on Indian Exchange than you can utilize Bittrex. All you have to do is locate an exchange that you favor. Cryptocurrency exchanges have a massive potential to modify peoples minds and opinions concerning cryptocurrencies generally speaking and their application in actual life. So even in the event the exchange is attacked, its still true that you have your money. Furthermore, the exchanges prepare each and every industry for Bitcoin expansion. Existing stock exchanges will also compete to be able to fulfill the users configuration requirements. Sooner or later later on, the prices will grow more equal, meeting somewhere in the middleyour profit is equivalent to the quantity of convergence. No matter how far it is from Kijun, it is likely to return and test that level at some point. The amount of bitcoin is perpetually changing. In the US, it is 1000 USD. Whats even better, seek the services of a seasoned lawyer or at least ask for an in depth consultation. So youve read the newspaper about the meteoric growth of crypto currencies including Bitcoin or Ripple. Then coming up with 1000s of exchange rates simply to go out and get groceries is nearly impossible. Many cities around the world provide a bitcoin ATM where you are able to trade cash for bitcoin. The cryptocurrency world isn`t efficient.
