Founded in 2011, Bitpay is considered to be an old-timer in the crypto processing industry. It was Bitpay that found the way to accept highly volatile bitcoins as a payment method when the services or products are nominated in fiat currencies. This mechanism works as follows: Bitpay generates an invoice nominated in crypto taking into account the current exchange rate of the selected cryptocurrency, and a buyer is granted approximately 15-30 minutes to pay the invoice with a fixed exchange rate. Accepted crypto can be immediately converted to fiat and sent to a merchant's bank account.

This one of the most famous cryptocurrency payment gateways offers a wide range of services for individuals and businesses: from prepaid crypto cards to e-commerce plugins, payment or donation buttons, and invoices. Bitpay has a handy dashboard for business clients with all payment details such as a list of paid or unresolved invoices, fiat amount and currency that the invoice was priced in and amount paid in selected crypto.

Bitpay supports the 12 most popular crypto, including BTC, BCH, ETH, LTC, WBTC; 5 USD-pegged stablecoins (GUSD, USDC, USDP, DAI, and BUSD); and even two meme-coins - DOGE and SHIB.

BitPay's pricing plan for merchants is flat - just a 1% fee on each paid invoice. It's an average processing fee among cryptocurrency payment gateways.

BitPay is a U.S.-based company thus it works only with a limited list of territories and countries as it has to comply with all mandated federal and local US regulations and sanctions.
