Advice and answers from the BitPay Team

Yes, you can use your BitPay Prepaid Visa® Card for credit transactions wherever Visa credit cards are accepted.

To do this, select the “credit” option as your payment method at checkout and sign instead of entering your PIN when using the card at any point-of-sale device. If you don't see a “credit” option on the point-of-sale device, you can always ask the cashier how to run the transaction as credit and they will assist you.

Note that you will receive Visa's zero liability protection for every credit transaction processed through Visa. See your Cardholder Agreement for details.
