Transaction fees Pay has one of the more attractive fees as they do not charge any transaction fees. They do however charge 0.5% in settlement fees and 1% in payout fees, which are not as clearly communicated. Finally, only selected merchants are currently able to receive payouts in fiat. Overall, the total fees are still competitive, including their more hidden fees.

Functionalities actually delivers two types of crypto payment methods.


  • The first being the option for users to complete their purchase using their app and balance.
  • The second option enables, after a merchant activates this, customers to pay with well known external wallet connection like Metamask and Walletnow.


The first option works very smooth, is competitive in fees and is safe. There is one obvious drawback, if the customer is not one of the 50 million users, he or she will not be able to pay.


This is likely the reason for Pay also providing the option for merchants to enable these external wallet connections. We do not recommend activating these external wallets as this can harm the safety of your own customers, as you can read in our safety blog.


Besides this, Pay delivers an invoicing system and volatility protection as every purchase will be automatically converted to a pre-defined currency, which can include fiat.
