Binance Pay is a cryptocurrency payment system created by Binance that enables shopping with crypto and can also be sent to family and friends globally.
In November 2022, SHIB was added to the list of cryptocurrencies supported by Binance Pay, joining cryptocurrencies such as Cardano (ADA), Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH).
Last month, Binance Pay announced its partnership with payment acceptance solutions provider Ingenico, pushing crypto adoption in France. SHIB and other cryptocurrencies can now be accepted in retail stores thanks to the partnership's in-store crypto payment acceptance solution.
