Binance Pay; Pay and get Paid in Crypto.

Binance Pay is a contactless, borderless and secure cryptocurrency payment technology designed by Binance. Binance Pay allows you to pay and get paid in crypto from your friends and family worldwide. Let us understand how this new crypto payment technology closes up the circle for our different users within the Binance ecosystem. Live the crypto lifestyle you always desired.

Unregistered Binance users can receive crypto payments through Binance Pay, but they can only redeem them once they create an account, verify it and activate the Pay feature. More than fifty digital assets are currently supported, giving Binance users a broad selection of assets to use when paying or receiving payment.

You can view and check which merchants are currently supported on the Binance Pay service through the Binance Marketplace.

2. Instant payment

Unlike traditional money transfer systems that require some time to process and send, you can send crypto online instantly with Binance Pay. Typically, delayed money transfers are caused by bank holidays, multiple intermediaries, missing paperwork, and other factors. Binance Pay operates on a user-to-user basis to avoid these types of delays, therefore allowing speedier transfers for you to get your crypto across faster. You can even send crypto to someone on the spot by scanning their Binance Pay QR code with your Binance app, making it a good payment option to offer if you are a merchant looking to accept cryptocurrencies as payment.

Binance Pay facilitates user-to-user transfers, which means that there are no intermediaries or fees that come with them.

5. Send to non-Binance users instantly

You can also transfer crypto to non-Binance users as long as they have access to the internet and a smartphone with the Binance app. This allows you to invite others who are not using the Binance app to start doing so, allowing for a breezy crypto transfer between you and your friend in the future.
