AT&T customers can now use bitcoin to settle their bills online.
According to a press release from the Dallas-based mobile carrier, customers who want to use cryptocurrency to pay their bills can do so by selecting BitPay as a payment option on the myAT&T app or when they log in to their account. BitPay is a popular crypto payment service that helps businesses accept cryptocurrencies for payments online.
“It's exciting for BitPay to support AT&T as it moves to accept bitcoin as a payment option,” Sonny Singh, BitPays chief commercial officer, told Bitcoin Magazine. “Bitcoin lets customers pay from anywhere in the world quickly and easily.”
For AT&T’s part, adding BitPay as a payment option gives its customers more flexibility.
“We’re always looking for ways to improve and expand our services,” said Kevin McDorman, vice president of AT&T’s Communications Finance Business Operations, per the release. “We have customers who use cryptocurrency, and we are happy we can offer them a way to pay their bills with the method they prefer.”
