  1. bitpay or more accurately bitscam, they will accept your payment in a fraction of a sec. but will take days or weeks to refund you, with lame excuses if lucky enough you are to get an answer. In case you are not complaining and give up, you will lose your money, don’t use this system of payment.

  2. Made a payment then was told something happened and Bitpay needed to refund me. So I click refund and find out I need to verify my identity before I can get my refund.
    Angrily I do that, then I’m told they cant verify my Identity. Now my money is gone. Thousands of dollars stolen by bitpay. STAY FAR AWAY
    Amount lost: $3,250

  3. I have not used my BitPay account for about months and was going to add some BTC so I could use my BitPay MC debit but when I log into my BitPay account on my computer my login and password work fine, but all of my account information, wallet balance and transactions are gone. I get asked if I want to crate an account after I log in. No Customer support is available for BitPay so I can’t even find out why my account information is gone. I can’t trust a company that just removes my account information with no explanation or any way to reach them.

  4. If any vendor use bitpay, just contact with the vendor to make payment directly, because bitpay is a trash. Their gateway is useless, unless it is not a scam. My last 3 payment was declined, it just crashed under the payment. They didn’t even refund my first payment, because i used a very old email in the vendor where i wanted to pay, and i couldsn’t even login to that mail service because it was already closed long ago, and it was much more complicated to change the mail in my vendor, than just keep that old email address as a user name. Obviously i could proof the payment (from where to where did i send), but they didn’t care. Now i am waiting for the 3rd refund, but obviously bitpay is the most disgusting crypto payment gateway!

  5. I was going to receive an payment from a GPT site, but unfortunately bitpay has some other verification even after completing KYC. You need a separate application for receiving payments. “Your application has been successfully submitted and is currently being reviewed. We’ll get back to you within 24 to 48 hours on the status of your verification. Please contact us if you have any questions.” It’s been around 58 hours by now.
