AT&T Now Accepts Crypto Payments
American multinational telecom conglomerate AT&T has partnered with Bitpay to allow users to pay their bills with cryptocurrencies. Customers can use the AT&T online platform when they log on to their accounts and select Bitpay as a payment option. This allows clients to access the Bitpay invoice portal, where they can select BCH or BTC in order to pay their bills. AT&T’s customer base is huge and the firm ranked #9 in the U.S. Fortune 500 rankings based on total revenue.
AT&T decided to partner with Bitpay and accept BCH and BTC because the firm wants to offer payment alternatives to better serve its customers. The vice president of AT&T’s communications finance business operations, Kevin Mcdorman, is thrilled to give clients more payment options. “We’re always looking for ways to improve and expand our services,” Mcdorman detailed during the announcement. The vice president also stated:
We have customers who use cryptocurrency, and we are happy we can offer them a way to pay their bills with the method they prefer.

At the moment the option is not available at AT&T stores and cryptos cannot be used to purchase mobile devices or products. The partnership with Bitpay only works with the telecom company’s bill pay services.
