BitPay vs Coinbase: What are the differences?

Developers describe BitPay as "Bitcoin payments, deposited to your bank account". Once received, BitPay converts the bitcoin to your preferred currency and adds the full amount of the payment – without fees – to your next BitPay account settlement. Funds are then deposited to your bank account or bitcoin address. On the other hand, Coinbase is detailed as "Integrate bitcoin payments into your website or application". Coinbase provides a simple and powerful REST API to integrate bitcoin payments into your business or application. We allow all major operations in bitcoin through one API.
