Bittrex links with emerchantpay to expand digital currency transactions


Payment service provider, emerchantpay, has linked with cryptocurrency exchange platform, Bittrex Global, to enable customers to purchase digital assets efficiently via debit and credit cards. 

It expands a payment journey that has previously relied upon bank transfers, which can take up to three days to be approved. 

Chris Smart, SVP Global Gambling, Crypto and FX at emerchantpay, commented: “We are delighted to announce our long-term partnership with Bittrex Global. In today’s world, fast, frictionless payments have never been more important, and we are proud to be supporting one of the world’s most successful trading platforms to deliver exactly this to its global customer base.”

Founded in 2014, Bittrex Global has gone on to build one of the most established trading platforms, focusing on elevating efficiency within the payments journey. 

During the roll-out strategy planning phase, the overriding objective was to ensure the customer experience was safe and easy. As of today, a Bittrex Global customer in multiple countries worldwide can deposit in their local currency whilst still trading in mainstream fiat alternatives. 

Stephen Stonberg, CEO at Bittrex Global, added on the collaboration: “Bittrex Global is dedicated to delivering unmatched security and an unparalleled user experience. As our brand continues to gain momentum across the globe, emerchantpay is the right partner to ensure we can deliver strategic excellence for our customers and add value to our payments’ ecosystem.”
