Wyre now supports Polygon!
July 22, 2021 — We are excited to announce that Wyre, a fiat-to-crypto payment gateway, has now enabled a fiat to USDC onramp with Polygon to their payment API.
Wyre provides payment APIs for individuals, developers, and partners. Now, Wyre has added $USDC to their payment API meaning that users can pay with Polygon on the Dapps built by the developers. This service has been enabled across 43 US states to pay using $USDC through Wyre API.
How does this help Developers & Users?
With this addition to Wyre, Polygon developers building their Dapps can integrate the checkout & card-processing API from Wyre and receive $USDC payments. Polygon-based DApps can easily convert fiat to USDC tokens in less than 30 seconds.
With Polygon, users will benefit from a superior user experience, faster payments and lower gas fees. Additionally, users can access our polygon ecosystem that comprises blue-chip projects such as SushiSwap, Aave, Curve, Balancer and many more.
By enabling fiat to USDC onramp, Wyre has opened the doors for mass adoption among non-crypto users and will contribute to the growing DeFi ecosystem on Polygon.
