Coin Telegraph covers Payza’s Bitcoin announcement and new Bitcoin features
The new Bitcoin services offered by Payza lets members hold their bitcoins directly in their e-wallets and they can now send and receive Bitcoin to and from other members instantly throughout the Payza network, just like they can do with USD, Euros or Pound Sterling. Firoz Patel, Payza’s Global Executive VP, states that “Today, we fulfill our promise to our members and are now able to treat Bitcoin like any other currency we deal with.”
According to Coin Telegraph, Payza’s move to offer new Bitcoin services “will take the digital currency a step closer in its disruption of the global remittance sector.” Payza’s focus on countries with high remittance rates, and the fact that it offers payment services already in countries such as China, India and Mexico, could “facilitate the spread of Bitcoin in some of these countries”.

Crowdfund Insider highlights Payza’s introduction of new Bitcoin options
In August 2014, Payza began offering Bitcoin services to its members, starting with the possibility to buy Bitcoin (Bitcoin Withdrawals): “one of the easiest ways to buy Bitcoin online.” In October that same year the possibility to sell Bitcoin (Bitcoin Deposits) was introduced: “an equally simple way to sell Bitcoin.” Now Payza has taken it one step further – on May 15th, Payza became “one of the first eWallet providers to treat Bitcoin like any fiat currency” by now letting its members hold their bitcoins directly in their Payza e-wallets. This means they no longer need a separate Bitcoin Wallet to “perform Bitcoin exchanges to or from fiat currencies.”
With Payza’s new Bitcoin services, members can instantly send and receive funds to and from other Payza members, for a small fee – 1.2% per transaction, which is lower than the standard Payza receiving fee of 2.9% + $0.30. This also means a change for merchants using Payza, since they can now choose to receive payments in Bitcoin and keep it in Bitcoin in their e-wallets, without the need to convert the funds right away. It is important to mention that “All purchases made by Bitcoin through Payza’s online payment platform – unlike traditional Bitcoin payments, which are irreversible – will remain protected by Payza’s Resolution Center, a section within Payza accounts dedicated to resolving transaction disputes between buyers and sellers.”
