New updates and improvements to MoonPay.
Sell in the app

Sell crypto with a few taps on the App 💸

We're thrilled to announce that our Sell feature is now seamlessly integrated into our MoonPay App. By bringing Sell to our official app, we're making it easier than ever for users to exchange crypto for fiat.

With this update, customers can now experience the complete range of transactional functionalities offered by MoonPay, namely buying, selling, and swapping cryptocurrencies – all conveniently available in the app.

New & Improved

  • Email gated Web3 experiences: This new feature empowers anyone to grant access to a minting experience based on a simple email allowlist. On top of that, the eligible people can claim the NFT without having a wallet or MoonPay Account. #NoWalletNoProblem

  • Cancel sell transaction: Customers are now able to cancel their sell order during the deposit stage, which is very useful in case they made a mistake or changed their mind. Previously the customer had to wait 7 days for the transaction to expire.

  • Balance of connected wallet: Upon connecting a wallet with MoonPay, customers will be able to view the balance of their connected wallet. This should simplify choosing how much to sell or swap.

  • MoonPay Checkout Polygon support: Our Checkout product now supports items priced in MATIC, you can try this out on OpenSea today.

  • FinProm UK Compliance: We're committed to meeting the UK's FinProm requirements, which involve tasks like filling out a risk waiver, adhering to the 24 hour cooling period, and completing the self-categorization and appropriateness test.

  • Delisted BNB in the UK: We no longer support buying, selling, and swapping BNB in the UK. Your safety and security are our top priorities. We regularly monitor the rules and regulations to ensure we're not just compliant, but also providing a secure and safe environment.

  • Improved UX during source of wealth verification: We let customers know exactly what documents they need to submit to succeed at the source of wealth verification and we provide clear explanations when there are any issues in the process.

Key features include:

Comprehensive business metrics: Access rich and up-to-date transactional metrics (e.g. volume, revenue, etc.) directly from your MoonPay dashboard.

Customer insights: Understand customer behavior and preferences to optimize user experience and drive engagement.

Cross-product analysis: Examine user-level data for all your MoonPay products, including Buy, Sell, and Swaps.

New & Improved

  • Simplified the Swaps integration via SDK: We streamlined URL signing, allowing you to add swaps to your product with just a one-line change, which contributes to a fast and effortless integration.

  • Increased session’s time to expire: Until now, we would automatically log our users out of Ramps after seven days of inactivity. For their convenience, we increased that to six months—although we doubt our users will resist buying or selling crypto for that long.

  • Added Wallet Connect support to Off-ramps: Until now our users had to manually send us the crypto they wanted to sell, and now they can simply connect to their favorite wallet and sell directly.

  • Disabled stablecoin transactions in Canada: Due to risk and compliance updates, stablecoin transactions are restricted in Canada. Canadian residents and users' with Canada IP addresses won't be able to see or transact with stablecoins.

A hackathon competition where the winner is the user 💜

The MoonPay team recently gathered for a five-day offsite in Lisbon, bringing together 100+ employees spanning over five departments and 20+ countries.

Our offsites often serve as the location for our quarterly hackathon, which has consistently fostered groundbreaking ideas.

Each hackathon has a specific theme, and this quarter’s was "Fix It". Rather than pursuing shiny new ideas, our focus was on enhancing the user experience of existing products. This also served as an opportunity for teams to clean up some product and tech debt before the start of the new year.

Eleven employees were elected to recruit and lead a team of approximately ten people each, with the goal of building production-ready solutions that would improve our core business. Almost a dozen teams managed to turn 25 ideas into production-ready solutions — all in less than a week! It was an awe-inspiring display of teamwork. 🤝

These ideas led to multiple improvements across our product offering, including:

  • Improved transaction tracking for purchases (On-ramps)

    • Manage user’s expectations by displaying an ETA based on weekly historical data

    • Let the user explore the transaction in the blockchain explorer for more details

    • Auto-refresh the transaction status in the Account page every minute

  • Revamped UI of send feature

    • Fix gas issues and improve error messages

    • Allow sending maximum and decimal amounts

    • Auto-complete with previously used wallets to avoid typing

  • Faster user refunds

    • Automate the majority of the process, reducing waiting times from weeks to days

    • User can now ask (and get) a refund without contacting customer support

  • Launched a new webpage for MoonPay Swaps

  • And much more!

MoonPay's progress depends on feedback from our users and partners. The features we introduce and the refinements we make are often responses to the input you provide us. Keep it coming and we'll continue to improve your experience the best we can!

Got 2 minutes? That’s all it takes with our improved SDK ⚡️

We're thrilled to introduce a game-changing upgrade to our MoonPay SDK collection, specifically tailored for React apps.

While our SDK did support React previously, it required building React-specific logic, which could be quite intricate. To put this into perspective, a custom React integration with our Web SDK would typically entail around 300 lines of code for an optimal developer experience.

With our new React package, this number has dramatically decreased to just around 10 lines - a remarkable reduction of approximately 96%.

The integration process is now incredibly straightforward. In just three lines of JSX, you can effectively incorporate the MoonPay React SDK. No need for intimidating hooks or worrying about loading MoonPay separately. Rest assured, the React SDK offers the same level of customization, seamless communication, and type-safety as our Web SDK.

Don't miss out on exploring this package on npm.

If you have any doubts you can always dive into our detailed documentation. Happy coding!

New & Improved

  • Improved NFT Checkout UI: We've modernized the design of our NFT Checkout. The Card Details component has also undergone a makeover, now consolidated into a single field from its previous three. This ensures a simplified experience while buying and tracking your NFT purchase.

  • Social login on MoonPay Account: Users can now seamlessly log in using Google and Apple sign in on the Web. No more verification codes! With login parity across Web, App, and Widget, we're dedicated to delivering a uniform experience for our users across all our consumer products.

  • Ability to close all sessions: We introduced a button on the MoonPay Account to log out the user of all active sessions. This enhanced control allowed us to extend the logged-in duration from 7 days to 180 days, offering our users greater convenience.

  • Added On-Ramp support for USDT_BSC: We introduced a new asset, USDT on Binance Smart Chain (BSC). Stay tuned for upcoming support for ETH_BASE and USDC_Base.

New & Improved

  • Replaced BUSD pairs with USDT on Binance: The Binance exchange has revealed plans to discontinue BUSD by February 2024. As such, we have proactively removed our dependency on BUSD pairs, and replaced them with USDT pairs to mitigate any intermittent issues related to the Binance announcement.

  • Arbitrum-native USDC support: We've implemented changes to support the native Arbitrum USDC across our products. This variant, issued by Circle and officially recognized by Arbitrum, holds the distinction of being directly redeemable for US dollars at a 1:1 ratio.

Registered provider? Aye! Compliant with Travel Rule? Aye! 🇬🇧

We are thrilled to announce a significant milestone in our journey towards regulatory compliance. MoonPay is now officially operating as a Registered Cryptoasset Provider in the United Kingdom. This achievement represents a crucial step in our commitment to providing a safe and reliable platform for our UK customers.

What does this mean for you? As part of our compliance efforts, we've introduced a new onboarding flow and requirements for all UK residents. This includes a localized questionnaire, updated Terms & Conditions, and new transaction limits.

Additionally, we are now screening UK customer wallets to determine if they are custodial or non-custodial at the order creation step, in strict accordance with the Financial Conduct Authority's (FCA) guidance. These changes are essential to comply with the Crypto Travel Rule.

For context, this is a mandate requiring Virtual Asset Service Providers (VASPs) and financial institutions involved in virtual asset transfers to collect and share personal data of transaction originators and beneficiaries. The goal is to combat money laundering and reinforce the integrity of virtual asset transactions.

These milestones are a testament to our dedication to maintaining the highest standards of security and regulatory compliance while providing you with a seamless crypto experience. You can learn more about it in our Newsroom post.

New & Improved

  • NFT Checkout Supports OpenSea Primary Drops on Arbitrum & Optimism: MoonPay’s NFT Checkout now supports Optimism & Arbitrum Primary drops on OpenSea, meaning you can purchase these NFTs with a card.

  • Sunset support for Malaysia: We had to discontinue our services for Malaysian customers due to the country's classification of crypto assets as securities. As much as it pains us to stop servicing Malaysians, we are committed to complying with local regulations. Terima kasih.

  • Stellar Off-ramp support: We now offer Stellar Off-ramp support, allowing you to smoothly and securely sell your XLM assets.

  • Miscellaneous fixes: We addressed various issues, including fixing the QR code for sell deposit details, making improvements to our SDKs (React Native and Web) and our BTC send feature.
