Payza App Update Incorporates Bitcoin Services and More!

The Payza developers have once again improved the Payza experience for our members – our Payza app just got even better! If you already have the Payza app, make sure you download the latest update to take advantage of the new features.

Take Payza with you wherever you go with the Payza app. You get all of Payza’s features in the palm of your hand and the app lets you stay on top of your Payza account: send money, add or withdraw funds, and review your account’s transaction history.

We have now improved the Payza app with a couple of new features, with a focus on facilitating Bitcoin usage and enhancing the user interface. These new features make what is available on the Payza desktop also available on the app. This in turn makes the user experience of the app easier, faster and more convenient for our Payza members.

The Payza App’s New Features at a Glance

Add Funds by Bitcoin

The latest Payza App updates gives you an easy way to exchange Bitcoin from outside Bitcoin Wallets into fiat currency in your Payza account. With this update, when you Add Funds by Bitcoin in the app, they will automatically be converted into US Dollars. Future updates will also give you the option to keep those funds in your Payza Bitcoin balance.

Here’s how the new feature works:

  1. In your Payza app, click “Add/Withdraw Funds” in the menu in the upper left-hand corner, then select “Add Funds by Bitcoin”.
  2. For the destination balance only US Dollars is currently available.
  3. Enter the deposit amount (in Bitcoin).
  4. Review the details and confirm your transaction by typing your Transaction PIN.
  5. Payza will provide you with a unique Bitcoin address for you to send your bitcoins and a set of instructions for completing your transaction.

Note that your account must be verified in order to do conversions from Bitcoin.

If you want to add Bitcoin to your Bitcoin balance, you will still need to use the Payza desktop site for now. Our developers are hard at work on the next Payza app update and expect to have this new release ready before the end of the year.

Load Your Payza Card with Bitcoin

If you have Bitcoin in your Payza e-wallet, you can easily load your Payza Card from your Bitcoin balance in the app. Just follow these steps:

  1. In your Payza app, click “Wallet” in the menu in the upper left-hand corner, select “Prepaid Cards” and click “Load Prepaid Card”.
    Or use the new shortcut: In the menu, click “Add/Withdraw Funds” and select “Load Prepaid Card”.
  2. Select the card you want to add funds to.
  3. Select Bitcoin as the currency balance and enter the amount.
  4. Review the details and confirm your transaction by typing your Transaction PIN.

In most cases loading your Payza Card with Bitcoin will be instant, however there are some exceptions. All Payza withdrawals can potentially trigger a withdrawal review which can take up to 3 business days.

User Interface Enhancement

By adding the “Add/Withdraw Funds” options directly in the app menu we have created an easier way for Payza members to find the deposit and withdrawal options they have for their account through an easy access menu.

Simply select “Add/Withdraw Funds” in the menu in the upper left-hand corner of the app. The funding methods available specifically for you will appear. Depending on your account, you will have the option to add funds by Credit Card, Bitcoin and/or the Payza Card, and to withdraw funds to your Payza Card. If you do not have a Payza Card, there is currently no other withdrawal option available through the Payza app, but our developers are working to add other withdrawal options as well.

We are always working on updates for the Payza app, so stay tuned for more exciting features to be available in the future!

The Payza mobile app is free and is available for Apple iOS and for Android. Download it from iTunes or Google Play for use on your iPhone, iPad, or Android devices.
