📣 Metal Pay iOS Update 1.6.0 – Referral Codes and QR Codes

A new version of Metal Pay is here!
Download Metal Pay version 1.6.0 for iOS today at m.tl/pay

Here’s what’s new:

🤘 Refreshed Home Page. We added some new items and brought some old things back. See for yourself!


Home Page Refresh

There’s quite a bit new here – so let’s break it down one item at a time.

🤘 Payment Buttons. Options for requesting (‘Request’) and sending (‘Send’) payments have returned.

🤘 Tab Bar. The new Tab Bar at the bottom puts your Payment History (‘Payments’), the Discover section (‘Discover’), and our new QR Code scanning feature (‘Scan’) one tap away.

🤘 ‘Scan’. Tapping the ‘Scan’ button at the bottom opens the following screen, which allows you to scan a friend’s QR Code or share your own with others. Scanning a QR code lets you request a payment, make a payment, or claim a referral.

Tap ‘Scan’ or ‘My Code’ at the top of this new page to toggle between your camera and your QR Code.


QR Code Scanning

🤘 Gift Button. The Gift Button is another new addition to the Home Page, and is in the top right corner. Tapping the Gift Button brings up a page where you can earn rewards from a friend’s referral code, or during special promotions.

Note that there are 3 ways to enter a referral code: (1) The Referral URL; (2) The 10-digit alphanumeric code at the end of the URL; and (3) By scanning a QR Code.


Gift Button Page

The bottom of the Gift Button page displays our current referral promotion as well as your personal Referral URL. Tapping the drawer icon at the bottom of this page provides two options for sharing your own referral code with others: (1) by QR Code; or by (2) URL Link.


Sharing Your Referral URL

🤘 Settings Page refresh. The Settings page has been updated to match our fresh new look. The QR Code icon near your profile picture provides a shortcut to the QR Code scanning and sharing page.


Settings Page Refresh

🤘 Updated the language for ‘Cash Out’ and ‘Add Cash’. We’ve updated the language on the Cash Card page (and provided some emoji graphics!) to make it clearer when you’re…
(1) Transferring money from Metal 💰 to your bank 🏦 (‘Cash Out’)
(2) Transferring money from your bank 🏦 to Metal 💰 (‘Add Cash’)


‘Cash Out’ and ‘Add Cash’

🤘 Improved Ticket Submissions We’ve updated the messaging for submitting a ticket. It’s something we hope you’ve never had, or have to do. But, alas, we’re not perfect. In case something isn’t working as expected, and you need help, simply shake your device while Metal Pay is open. Doing so will open the new and improved window below, allowing you to pick a category for your issue and then write a description of the problem you are having.


Improved Ticket Submissions

That’s all for now! We hope you enjoy version 1.6.0!

👀 Coming soon…

We anticipate that our next biweekly update will feature:

🤘 Buy/Sell Fee Reduction – Holding MTL. This is one of the first utilities for our native cryptocurrency Metal (MTL). Users will be granted a fee reduction for buying and selling cryptocurrency inside of Metal Pay, based on the following criteria:

  • The amount of MTL held in the account (rolling average over a certain amount of days).
  • The net difference of buys and sells for MTL in the account. (dollar value of ‘Buys’ minus dollar value of ‘Sells’).
