Bitcoin is complex. Apple Pay is simple. 

Amber links the two; allowing you to buy Bitcoin with Apple Pay. Making your Bitcoin experience simple, fast and secure. 

Much like Bitcoin, Apple Pay has revolutionised an industry. There’s no longer a need to type in credit card numbers or expose any unnecessary personal details. 

Stacking sats has never been easier. Let’s help you get some.

Why Use Apple Pay?

As noted up above, Apple Pay’s security is one of the major reasons people use Apple Pay. However, there are also several others:

  • It’s so simple for iPhone users. Couple of clicks and the payment is done.
  • Remove the hassle of finding your wallet for your credit/debit card details.
  • It’s available on the majority of apps found on the App store.
  • A password or recognition from your face or fingerprint is all that’s needed to make purchases.
  • One of, if not, the fastest payment method.

Apple Pay users, via their IOS device, are now able to exchange their fiat currency to buy Bitcoin in under 90 seconds. Let’s see how, below.

Step 1: Download the Amber App

Simple. Fast. Secure. 

Search for Amber on your App Store. Download and start your journey down the Bitcoin rabbit hole. Amber is 100% free.

Depending on your internet speed, this process should be completed in 10 seconds.

Step 2: Set up an account

In less than 60 seconds you can set up your account. Enter the necessary information and get one step closer to purchasing your first Bitcoins. 

Amber takes your privacy seriously. Your personal details are all secured using the latest collaborative custody, authentication and encryption standards.

Step 2.5: Verify your account

This step is completely optional, prior to your first Bitcoin purchase. 

However, you will need to verify your account in order to withdraw USD, or to send Bitcoin to another Bitcoin wallet address. Either complete this process now, or save it for a later date.

We’ll skip this step on the timer, because we know how badly you want to buy Bitcoin.

Step 3: Select how much Bitcoin

Here at Amber, we recommend using Dollar Cost Averaging to reduce risk by investing smaller amounts regularly, rather than trying to time the market. The price of Bitcoin becomes less important when you decide to DCA.

Whether you want to smash buy, DCA in or Buy the Schiff; whatever it is, this is where you decide how much Bitcoin you would like to purchase.

No matter how you decide to buy Bitcoin, stacking any sats is the way to go! 

You can easily set up a DCA in less than 10 seconds.

Step 4: Select Apple Pay

Here’s where the magic happens. Deciding on your payment method.

Ignore credit/debit card, EFT and PayID. The Apple Pay option is arguably the quickest and easiest way to buy. 

Amber offers some of the most competitive rates in the Bitcoin space, even against top exchanges: 

  • Amber Basic members: 0.99% of Bitcoin purchases or sales.
  • Amber Black members: 0% of Bitcoin purchases or sales.

Apple pay works, so you’ll be done in 5 seconds. Select Apple pay. Confirm your payment. Done.

When you spend fiat to buy Bitcoin with Apple pay, straight from your iPhone, you feel like you are contributing to this peer to peer marketplace, that Bitcoin is. Bitcoin was built, with the thought in mind, that financial institutions shouldn’t have total control over your wealth. Your energy. Your hard work.

Step 5: View your Bitcoin

You have successfully purchased Bitcoin! There is zero wait time, to see your Bitcoin balance go up.

And you chose the simplest method: The Amber App + Apple Pay. 

Amber values your privacy and security, therefore, your Bitcoin are held in a non custodial Bitcoin wallet. You can make a Bitcoin transaction, to move your Bitcoin out of Amber into your own Bitcoin wallet – which we suggest you do.
