4 Crypto Payment Providers Giving Paypal's Venmo A Run For Its Money
Late last year Paypal had good news for crypto users with their new "Checkout with Crypto", which would allow any PayPal account holder to buy, and sell products across thousands of merchants using their digital currencies. This was announced to fanfare and had the positive effect of helping boost the price of the related cryptocurrencies.
This was especially good news for those eager to see cryptos move closer to a state of mass adoption. At that time PayPal had over 346 million active accounts. This did however come with some drawbacks. Merchants would receive their payments in fiat currency. For the users, they would not be able to buy cryptos on the platform and those users with third-party crypto wallets could not move their holdings from those wallets into their Paypal account.
That is where the market opened up for competitors of Paypal, who could not only offer transactional payments but could also offer users the ability to transfer from external wallets, to buy cryptos on their platforms, and to pay merchants directly in crypto and sometimes to give users more than they had bargained for.
Step up the leading payment provider solutions that have stepped into the fray:

CoinZoom allows users to not only buy, sell and spend bitcoin, it also allows them to get CoinZoom global debit cards to easily spend their fiat and crypto balances at over 53 million merchants.

Perhaps, the jewel in its crown though is the ZoomMe international peer-to-peer fiat or money transfer feature which is completely and utterly free. That should give Paypal a run for its money.
