USDC Stablecoin Issuer Circle Says Businesses Can Accept Apple Pay

Merchants who accept payments in Circle's USDC stablecoin can now interact with Apple Pay, Circle said in a blog post.

“NFT marketplaces, crypto gaming, crypto exchanges, crypto wallets and cross-border remittance providers can help their business grow by making checkout easy with Apple Pay and Circle,” the company said.

The addition will help crypto-native businesses by making it easier to take payments, while not excluding customers that don’t use crypto. In addition, “traditional businesses can also take advantage of this enhancement to shift more retail payments to digital currency,” Circle said.

In June, Circle added support for Polygon USDC on its payments and treasury platform in a move that would help developers automate flows from fiat into Polygon USDC, along with being able to swap it for native USDC across various blockchain networks.
