BitPay Confirms SHIB, DOGE Acceptance In Uber Eats But Here’s The Catch

by

Good news for Shiba Inu SHIB and Dogecoin DOGE holders. Users can now pay for their food deliveries from Uber Eats and DoorDash using their cryptocurrencies enabled by payment service provider BitPay

Besides that BitPay also extended the service to include other cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin [BTC], Ethereum [ETH], Bitcoin Cash [BCH], Litecoin [LTC], XRP, Dai [DAI], Wrapped Bitcoin [WBTC], and stablecoins.

However, one has to purchase BitPay gift cards and BitPay cards as Uber Eats and DoorDash do not accept direct crypto payments yet.

Additionally, crypto holders can purchase gift cards through BitPay from a wide range of well-known takeout restaurants including quick service and sit-down favorites like Bonefish Grill, Chili’s, Carrabba’s Italian Grill, Steak ‘n Shake, and many more. 

According to the blog post, a second payment option for users is via BitPay partner Menufy which allows one to pay for takeout or delivery from local restaurants or national chains directly from a crypto wallet.

For Europeans, one can take advantage of the same service using Takeaway.com, the blog added.

BitPay Confirms SHIB, DOGE Acceptance In Uber Eats But Here’s The Catch 3

A month ago, another giant fast-food player- Chipotle, a Mexican restaurant chain, enabled Shiba Inu, Bitcoin, and other cryptocurrencies through the digital payments platform Flexa.

This means of payment was made available in more than 2,975 Chipotle restaurants across the United States.

Shiba Inu Payments Now Enabled in 179 Countries

BitPay began supporting the Shiba Inu coin in December 2021. In early June the payment firm collaborated with a noncustodial wallet Edge where customers can buy, sell, trade, and spend over 130 digital assets.

Through this integration, Shiba Inu payments were made accessible in 179 nations, which has further boosted the asset’s adoption.

And the good news is that the current market drawdown has hardly put a dent in the token’s growing popularity. In fact, SHIB was among the seven new coins that Coinbase Commerce added to its payment options, TronWeekly reported.

From numerous exchanges and supermarket chains to high-end retailers, all have jumped on the bandwagon to add the popular meme coin as a form of payment.

Luxury watchmakers like Tag Heuer, Hublot, and Breitling are some examples that have recently incorporated cryptocurrencies via payments processor BitPay.
