Can I make purchases using Optimism?

  • Updated

Unfortunately, Optimism cannot be used as a payment method. However, you can swap your favorite Optimism tokens using Lifi (a decentralized exchange unrelated to Bitrefill) and top-up your Bitrefill USD or EUR balances, which can then be used to pay for your order. Your tokens will be swapped to USDC which then will be used to top up your USD or EUR balance.


To utilize the Swap and Top-up feature:

  1. Log in to your Bitrefill account, navigate to the "Account" section, and select the red "Top-up Balance" button (or use the link
  2. Choose "Other tokens" from the provided list and if you want to top up your account to “USD” or “Euro”.
  3. Click "Connect wallet". 
  4. Select OP chain/network, and pick the token you wish to use from your wallet.
  5. Enter the amount you want to swap and top-up.
  6. The estimated gas fee will be displayed.
  7. Click on “Review swap”.
  8. If you agree with the swap click on “swap and top-up” and sign the transaction on your wallet. 


⚠ Important:

  • Top-ups are swapped to USDC by Lifi, and then used to top up your USD or EUR balance.
  • Top-up addresses should be used only once. Do not reuse them, as your account will not be credited and we cannot recover your payment.
  • Confirm that the token you wish to swap is supported.
  • After connecting your wallet, the interface will display the number of tokens available.
  • The exchange fee will be shown under "Other tokens". Confirm you are fine with it!
  • At the end: The maximum allowed balance top-up is 2,000 USD.
