Benefits of buying Apple products with crypto
When buying Apple products with crypto instead of a credit card, you’ll pay none of the fees credit card companies tend to tack on for using their services. This is especially true if you’re transacting outside the country. If you carry a credit card balance month to month instead of paying it off with crypto right away, you know those interest charges can stack up real quick.
Crypto payments are safe and secure. We always recommend only buying Apple products with crypto from businesses you know are legitimate. To be even safer, stick to shopping at retailers that use BitPay as their payments processor.
Crypto payments are also incredibly flexible, giving you the freedom to use practically any crypto wallet and pay with your favorite crypto out of dozens of options. Cross-border payments are also easier and cheaper with crypto than bank wires or paying by credit card. If you’re buying from a retailer outside the country, expect to pay between a 1-3% foreign transaction fee. Wire transfer fees can run from $15-$50 depending which direction the payment is going. None of these fees are a factor with crypto payments.
