The head of the product at Coinbase Commerce, Justin OBrien, said in an interview that in the second quarter 2019 volumes began to rise and by now have achieved $50 mln.

The mobile app by Coinbase enables both merchants and buyers to use crypto easily. Besides, Coinbase Commerce was developed so it could be integrated with existing payment flows.

Presently, the app is used by such merchants as OpenCart, WooCommerce and a couple of others. Merchants that want to make use of Coinbase Commerce have to create an account and a custodial wallet, so they can receive crypto.

More coins to be added

The team of the app has made certain upgrades, so soon the the mobile platform will be able to take all ERC-20 tokens as payment.

After adding USDC, OBrien believes that the app will get more users, since stablecoins are not vulnerable to volatility jumps unlike decentralized coins, such as Bitcoin or Ethereum.
