Americans love Apple products, and the iconic Cupertino-based electronics giant wouldn’t be the world's most valuable company if that wasn’t the case. Whether you’re replacing a scuffed up MacBook, an iPhone with a cracked screen or if you caught a bad case of FOMO from Apple’s latest splashy product launch, these days you can pay for all kinds of Apple products with cryptocurrency.
How to buy Apple products with crypto
You’ll typically have three ways to pay for apple products with Bitcoin or another cryptocurrency:
- Shop directly from an Apple retailer that accepts crypto payments
- Use a crypto debit card like the BitPay Card
- Buy gift cards with crypto and then use the gift cards on your Apple goods of choice
Pay for Apple products straight from your crypto wallet
For now, the pool of merchants that allows shoppers to buy Apple products with cryptocurrency is small, and Apple itself does not accept direct crypto payments. But BitPay is forging new partnerships with retailers all the time, so the hope is to change that in the near future. Newegg is your best option for buying a MacBook Pro or iPhone with Bitcoin or other crypto. Simply complete the transaction as normal and select “BitPay” under payment options. Use your BitPay Wallet or another trusted crypto wallet to complete the transaction.
Use the BitPay Debit Card to shop at the Apple Store and other Apple retailers
The most flexible option for buying Apple products with crypto is the BitPay crypto debit card. Whether in person or online, the BitPay Card lets you spend Bitcoin or other cryptocurrency as easily as cash anywhere Mastercard is accepted. Use the card to buy an iPhone with crypto directly from the Apple Store, or any retailer of your choice that carries Apple products.
