Two months ago, we started requiring Payment Protocol wallets for BitPay invoice payments. It only took a couple of weeks to achieve our goal of nearly eliminating underpayments, overpayments, and late payments for BitPay merchants and their customers.
In the meantime, we've been working to help more wallets in the bitcoin ecosystem become fully compatible with Payment Protocol. Our developers recently created a simplified JSON Payment Protocol interface to make it more straightforward for wallets to adopt Payment Protocol. We've also been able to welcome the Payment Protocol-compatible Bitcoin.com wallet to the list of compatible wallets for BitPay payments.
Now, we’re excited to announce that BRD Wallet is the newest wallet to become fully compatible for scanning Payment Protocol QR codes. BRD (Bread) is a wallet for Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, and Ethereum. BRD has long been one of our most highly recommended true bitcoin wallets, alongside the BitPay and Copay wallets.
With its own new, improved implementation of Payment Protocol, the BRD wallet is perfect for paying any BitPay merchant without risk of underpayments, overpayments, and refunds.
