Apple Pay

Buying crypto with Apple Pay is convenient, fast, and thanks to Apple's built-in 2FA requirement, more secure than using a credit or debit card.

Have an iOS device? Download the Coinmama iOS wallet app here.

This payment method incurs a 4.99% momentum fee that is added to your purchase amount. For more information on our fees and charges, click here.

How does Apple Pay work?

  1. Choose the Apple Pay option (Will only be visible when using Safari browser) 


    Confirm the payment by completing the Apple authentication with Face ID, Touch ID, or a passcode. The status of your order will then change to In Process, which means that it's being handled by one of our card processors.

    This usually takes a few seconds. If it takes longer, it would be best to wait - Coinmama orders expire if they're not completed within 30 minutes, and you'll be able to see what the issue was once yours does. Click here for more insight on transaction statuses and what they mean.

  2. Confirm your wallet 

    If you don't have 2FA enabled, head over to your email inbox, read the message carefully, and click the link in the wallet confirmation email if the information is correct.

    Once you have confirmed your wallet, we usually send the coins within an hour, and you'll be able to see them as soon as the Blockchain has confirmed the transaction - this may take another 10 minutes or longer, depending on the amount of traffic on the Blockchain Network at the given time.

The coins are not sent until you confirm the wallet address for us (either via 2FA or email). Do not confirm your wallet address if this is incorrect as transactions are irreversible.
