Adding a payment method

Coinbase Exchange supports several different payment methods for customers in the US, UK, and EU. See the steps below for adding a payment method based on your location.

US customers

US customers residing in a state where Coinbase offers service can fund their Coinbase Exchange accounts with USD via wire or ACH transfers. Prior to transferring funds from your bank, you must verify your US bank account through the process below.

To verify your US bank account, follow these steps:

  1. Open the trading view at exchange.coinbase.com/trade
  2. On the left-hand column under Wallet Balance, select the Deposit option
  3. In the Currency Type field, select USD
  4. Select the Bank Account tab, then select From, then select Add Account

You will be redirected to Coinbase.com to complete the bank account verification process

UK Customers

UK customers have access to both a GBP and EUR wallet, but the wallets are funded using different payment methods. While we support Faster Payments for GBP and SEPA for EUR, we currently do not support CHAPS.

To link your UK bank account, follow these steps:

  1. Open the trading view at exchange.coinbase.com/trade
  2. On the left-hand column under Wallet Balance, select Deposit
  3. In the Currency Type field, select GBP  
  4. In the Deposit GBP menu, select the Bank Account tab, select From, then select the Add Account link

You'll be redirected to Coinbase.com to complete the bank account verification process.

To initiate an international SEPA deposit, follow these steps:

  1. Open the trading view at exchange.coinbase.com/trade
  2. On the left-hand column under Wallet Balance, select the Deposit option
  3. In the Currency Type field, select EUR
  4. In the Deposit EUR menu, select SEPA transfer. Use the information displayed to initiate a SEPA transfer in euros from your bank account
  5. It's important to include the Reference Number to ensure that your deposit is correctly associated with your Coinbase Exchange account. Please include this exactly as displayed—no other information can be included
  6. Your funds will appear in your account 1-3 business days after you send them

Please note, you will need to make an international SEPA transfer, otherwise the IBAN number will be invalid as incorrect in length. We only support the EUR currency for SEPA transfers at this time. If you send a different currency in your deposit (such as USD, GBP, etc.), the transfer will be rejected by our system and will automatically be returned to your bank account.

EU customers

EU customers have the option of either using an EU bank account or SEPA transfers.

To verify an EU bank account:

  1. Open the trading view at exchange.coinbase.com/trade
  2. On the left-hand column under Wallet Balance, select Deposit
  3. In the Currency Type field, select EUR  
  4. In the Deposit EUR menu, select the Bank Account tab, select From, then select the Add Account link

You will be redirected to Coinbase.com to complete the bank account verification process.

To deposit with SEPA:

  1. Open the trading view at exchange.coinbase.com/trade
  2. ​On the left-hand column under Wallet Balance, select the Deposit option
  3. In the Currency Type field, select EUR
  4. In the Deposit EUR menu, select SEPA transfer. Use the information displayed to initiate a SEPA transfer in euros from your bank account
  5. It is important to include the Reference Number to ensure that your deposit is correctly associated with your Coinbase Exchange account. Please include this exactly as displayed—no other information can be included
  6. Your funds will appear in your account 1-3 business days after you send them

Once you've successfully completed a SEPA deposit into your Exchange account, you'll be able to withdraw using the saved SEPA bank account.

Please note that we only support the EUR currency for SEPA transfers at this time. If you send a different currency in your deposit (such as USD, GBP, etc.), the transfer will be rejected by our system and will automatically be returned to your bank account.
