Bistamp adds support for PayPal after Google Pay and Apple Pay

PayPal is the latest payment method on the exchange, and one of the key integrations given the payments service provider’s global reach that counts over 325 million accounts.

Apple Pay and Google Pay, which Bitstamp announced support for in late August this year, have more than 500 million and over 150 million users worldwide respectively.

Bitstamp on the other hand has over 4 million users across 100+ countries, meaning that the addition of PayPal, now means that millions more can buy Bitcoin with Apple Pay or any of the supported wallets by quickly funding their accounts. It also means that Bitstamp supports the leading wallet apps as well as bank transfer and credit card.
