Metal Pay 2.1 is here!

Hey Metal fam, how’s December been treating you? If you’re like most people, you’re probably super busy knocking out last-minute shopping, finishing up work, and making plans with your favorite people. If you’re like us, then this December has been a whirlwind of improvements to the app, new features, and progress towards products you all have been waiting for.

Curious about what our little elves have been working on at our workshop? Keep reading to find out what’s new, what’s better, and what’s coming in Metal Pay.

Pedal to the Metal on Transactions

Users can now directly link their personal debit card to their Metal Pay account. Sending money is now lightning fast when you’re using your debit card – so say goodbye to waiting days for transfers to process. Just how fast are transactions now? We’re expecting times as quick as same day – a huge improvement.


Christmas Bonus: 0% Fees for Withdrawals

To celebrate our new feature of linked debit cards, we’re rolling out 0% fees for all withdrawals for a limited time only. You’ll want to act fast, this promotion will be gone faster than a plate of cookies when Santa is around.

(Please note: only VISA debit cards are available for withdrawal at this time, but support for more providers is on the way.)

Flexible Pairings

We know that sometimes you need to buy or sell cryptocurrencies using odd combinations; sell one coin to get a different coin, trade this coin to get that coin. Whatever pairing you need to make, we’re here for it. That’s why we’re enabling new pairing options for buying and selling cryptocurrencies within the app. Take a look at your holdings, check out that new ability in the app, and see if there are any exchanges you’re wanting to make.


Better Charts

Our users have loved the charts feature for our cryptocurrency Marketplace. Sometimes just knowing historical trends, minute-by-minute price directions, and more information is all that’s needed to finally give the greenlight on a crypto trade. That’s why we’re making the charts in our Marketplace faster, more responsive, and more reliable. Check them out for yourself and see if you can spot the difference.

There are more improvements, bug fixes, and other changes we’ve made in this update that we didn’t explain in this blog post, so make sure you update your app to see what’s new. As always, let us know if you have any questions or concerns by either shaking your device while the Metal Pay app is open, or by dropping us a line on social media: Twitter | Instagram | Facebook | Steemit

🤘 Your friends at Metal 🤘
