Users can now Transfer Crypto to Other Wallets on PayPal
Investors could buy, hold and sell crypto on PayPal. Now, the platform has added new features to allow users to transfer crypto to other wallets. Users can transfer their digital assets into PayPal wallets and other crypto wallets too.
Earlier, users could purchase cryptocurrencies from the PayPal platform. But now, users can transfer crypto to other wallets and to other PayPal wallets too. PayPal has added a new feature to allow users in the US to move crypto from its app to other crypto addresses within seconds.
Transfer of cryptocurrencies from PayPal to other wallets and exchanges is one of the most requested enhancements from users, says Jose Fernandez da Ponte, the Senior Vice President of PayPal. It will make online transactions easier, says Fernandez.
The platform has made a start by allowing customers holding prominent cryptos like Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, and Bitcoin Cash to transfer their digital assets to PayPal or other external wallets. They can also transfer crypto from external addresses. The new facility is available only to users in the US and only after completing the identity verification process.
No Fees for Transfer of Crypto on PayPal
PayPal crypto owners who transfer crypto to other PayPal users can make the transfer free of charge. But while transferring to external wallets, users have to pay a network fee. It is a long-awaited feature by users. The new feature will be available to users in the US, says the company.
“PayPal is excited to announce the transfer of cryptocurrencies between wallets and exchange”, announced the company on Twitter. There are millions of people across the world using PayPal. It is a payment platform that allows the transfer of money across the globe.
PayPal is the owner of the Venmo app too. PayPal SVP, Jose Fernandez da Ponte expects more business transactions to move to digital currencies. As crypto transfers play a major role in commercial and business purposes, the company is not charging an extra fee for transfer payments.
In 2020, PayPal allowed its customers to buy, hold and sell crypto. In 2021, PayPal added another feature to facilitate customers to conduct online businesses with crypto. Now, PayPal has added another feather to its cap by allowing users the ability to transfer crypto.
