PayPal Holdings Inc. will start letting its U.S. customers purchase items with cryptocurrencies in the latest embrace of digital assets by a traditional payments player.

Starting today, the "Checkout with Crypto" feature will be gradually rolling out for customers in the US. For the first time, PayPal will accept Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum, or Bitcoin Cash as a payment option for millions of businesses across the globe.

The feature works by converting the select cryptocurrency into US dollars—but with no additional transaction fee tacked on, according to PayPal. You'll just need agree to what conversation rate the company offers.

At the checkout, PayPal will check if the user has enough balance in cryptocurrency to pay for the items. If they do, it will present cryptocurrency as a payments option.
