Instant Card Withdrawals

IInstant Card Withdrawals allow eligible Coinbase customers to instantly withdraw money from their fiat wallets directly to their Visa Fast Funds enabled credit and debit cards. 

Please note that US customers can only link Visa Fast Funds or MasterCard Send enabled debit cards (Visa Fast Funds and MasterCard Send are card functionalities that allow real-time transaction processing).

MasterCard withdrawals are not supported for the EU or UK at this time. 

Am I eligible? 

In order to be eligible for Instant Card Withdrawals, you must:

  • Live in the UK, EU, or US

  • Have a verified and linked credit/debit card on Coinbase.com that is Visa Fast Funds or MasterCard Send enabled by your card issuer 

  • Have a GBP, Euro, or USD wallet on Coinbase.com

How does it work? 

There are only a few steps to instantly withdraw from your GBP, Euro, or USD wallet.

  1. Ensure you have money in your GBP, Euro, or USD wallet (you may need to sell crypto)

  2. In your GBP, Euro, or USD wallet, select the withdraw button

  3. Choose your linked card from the menu as the withdrawal option

If you don't have any cards linked to your Coinbase account, see these help articles for UK customers, EU customers, and US customers.

How long do Instant Card Withdrawals take?

Do Instant Card Withdrawals work for all cards? 

No, not all card providers allow Instant Card Withdrawals on their platform. If you don't see your card listed as an option, this means your card does not allow this feature.
