  • Coinbase is Amazing


    By KishaHeart
    Most of these bad reviewe are pathetic, i have been with coinbase for over a year and thw only issue I wver had was verification. Customer service toon a few days to respond but explained, i can use my prepaid debit card through Metabank but cannot use my Metabank account to withdraw funds. I have been paid, recieved my funds, within the given processing time. Maybethese users did not fully verify theor accounts or maybe they used VPNs and from non-permitted countries, but also the most recent reviewers, beed to understand last week was a holiday week and this week there is new years day so many businesses customer service will not be available and responses are delayed This included coinbase. Also maybe read their FAQs and agreements and see what is not allowed because buying crypto not approved by them, is in a sense, not okay and it even states it in their system. So do not blame them for uour stupity. I would rather use coinbase over Blockchain whuch is way harder to ise, transfer, exchange, and most of the wallets dont work
  • Terrible Customer Response / inaccurate gains in balances


    By Mfrielin
    There are many things I like about Coinbase. Easy and intuitive interface, easy of trading between currencies, etc. But as I got more savvy in my trading and started tracking gains, I’ve found discrepancies between increases in currency rates and my balance. In other words, I would track the time in which I had made trades and calculate the amount that my balance should reflect. I found almost always that it was off and not by a little, by a lot. This is alarming to me as I see that there is real potential for fraud within this platform. In addition, I’d sent a transfer of funds from MY Binance account to my Coinbase account and after a week, I have yet to see those funds deposit to my ETC wallet that I’d used for the transfer. I’ve sent multiple customer service requests since then regarding the transfer both to Binance and to Coinbase. Binance has gotten back to me sharing the blockchain record of my transfer to my ETC Coinbase account indicating that I would need to remedy account receipts with Coinbase. I reached out to Coinbase and then have yet to respond. This was not a small amount. It is not okay for them to have inaccurate gains reflecting in account balances and no response on transactions that should have cleared over a week ago now. I will be filing a complaint with SEC outlining these discrepancies and their failure to remedy them.

They will tell you that you will have to close an account that u don’t own and keep your money you invested this is a WARNING to anyone using this this was my experience I just felt compelled to tell everyone.
  • Decent but deceptive


    By Lizo664
    All very fast and professional, right up until you try to cut your losses. Bought bitcoin with the intention of selling it a few days later for a (tiny) profit as more of an experiment than anything. I sent in my license photos, linked my bank account, and got everything verified. Bought a couple hundred in btc. A few days later the price has gone up a few hundred and I try to sell- to find my funds placed on a ‘24 day hold’ to ‘prevent fraud’. What?? If this is common practice, they certainly went out of their way not to mention it, and if it isn’t, I can’t think of any reason why they would have flagged me or my transaction as suspicious. I have now sat and watched the btc price plummet over $1,000 in the past few weeks. By the time I’m able to access my money I will have lost much of it. I understand that btc prices are famously erratic and I accept that I would have lost a little bit, but with every day I lose more and more of MY money which is being held from me. Incredibly disappointed with the lack of clarity in this matter. If it were not for this ridiculous, month-long freeze on my transaction, I would be very happy with this app. The layout is nice and the verification was fast and professional. However, any app that forces me out of MY money without forewarning is NOT a winner in my books.
  • Horrible app


    By Pismo123
    There is absolutely zero customer support with coinbase. I’ve been trying for 2 days to reach an actual human about why my money is being held captive. I made a debit card purchase which is supposed to be instant. And it said there’s a 5 day hold on my funds. So after 2 days of trying to figure out why that is, I finally just gave up and sold the btc expecting to be able to withdraw my remaining cash balance. And I lost $10 in this process, over coinbase fees, and I didn’t even care. I just wanted my money back. But now there is a hold on my cash balance too! And I needed that money yesterday. I can’t afford to wait 5 days. But coinbase doesn’t care in the slightest. Because there is no way to reach anybody for customer support. You can email them, but you will just get a robotic response saying it will take 5-7+ days to fix your issue. So I’m pretty positive that nobody even actually reads the customer support emails. And now my only money is being held captive by this website that won’t even give me the time of day to tell me why. I’m extremely frustrated. This app is the worst btc app I’ve ever used, because this isn’t the first time I’ve had issues like this where “customer support” did absolutely nothing for me. Never coming back to coinbase after they finally stop holding my money captive.
  • Coinbase could be good but...


    By kamikaze0313
    I’ve tried Robinhood, Abra and Coinbase for Crypto buying. Simply put Coinbase has a good set up but they nickel and dime you to death. For example; to deposit money even with bank transfer you are charged a fee of 0.99 for up to $25, $1.49 for up to $50, $1.99 for up to &100 and so on. Robinhood and Abra does not charge you for bank transfers, only card deposits. Coinbase also charges you again to sell your crypto’s at basically the same fees as depositing. Robinhood and Abra do not. Coinbase basically hits your wallet all over when that’s money that could be invest in crypto’s. Now let’s get onto the refer a friend side of it. Coinbase will give you $10 worth of crypto after someone you invite joins and buys $100 worth of crypto. Abra gives you and friend joining each $25 worth of Bitcoin after friend deposits a minimum of $50. Robinhood gives you a free stock each. Overall Abra is by far the best Cryptocurrency app for buying and selling. Robinhood is okay for beginners but you can’t send crypto’s. Robinhood is good for buying and selling like you do stocks, also Robinhood let’s you buy stocks so you can use one app to be in two different markets at once (stocks and crypto’s). What I’m saying is do not waste your time and money on Coinbase. Abra is hands down better with hardly having any fees across the entire board.
  • Worst platform


    By Alex132alex
    This is the worst platform to trade on. They will charge you fees that you don’t even know about, and they will hold your money without any response to you. Their costumer service does not have a phone line and will respond to your emails or requests in only a few weeks after you submit a case. I have deposited funds and it’s been 3 weeks and I still can’t trade them, nor I can send them or withdraw like their policy says that you funds a re w available immediately or in few days depending on how you make your deposit. I opened a dozen cases and and only response I got it is it’s on hold for security reasons after 2 weeks of submitting my case. Complete scam ladies and gentle man, I suggest you get a paid platform and trade with confidence because here that is not possible. Even their fees are hidden. I bought a BTC partially, actual BTC price was $11,300... but when you already buy it buys it for $11,450 even though the price of BTC didn’t even go near $11,400 that day. I opened 3 cases about a month back and no one responded yet. Guys don’t waste your time and patience. Find a better platform that is paid but you will be taken care off. I will continue to post my reviews on every review page to ensure that more people know what they are dealing with. Don’t let them play you.
  • Poor Customer service glitchy app


    By user 11236
    I told you guys about an erroneous transaction immediately when it happened on February 1. Now you are kicking me off the system after you forced me to RE-verify all of my information leading me to believe I would be good. I could have been started to withdraw my money now I have to wait an additional 10 more days. When I told you guys about this erroneous transaction I was told in an email also on February 1 from you that “ If you do not have enough funds in your bank account to cover this purchase, then allow the transaction to reverse and reprocess with your bank. If we’re unable to successfully complete the transaction with your bank, we will attempt to recover the value of your funds held onsite.” I left the money there didn’t trade any additional stock with it waited for you guys. When I found out I couldn’t make any more transactions they gave me an option to give it back. This option was not told to me in the email. You can check. I immediately gave it back when I seen that option so why am I being penalized? I even took the money out of the stock in the event it dropped I didn’t want your money to be affected. To kick me off the site after dragging me along an entire 14 days with almost 2k tied up is pretty ridiculous.
  • I lost so much money because of this app


    By davidjpfeiffer
    I downloaded this app to start investing in bitcoin, and I spent a few days setting it up. I even made one test purchase, which was successful, just to make sure I would be ready to buy when the price was low. When that time came, I attempted to buy a much larger amount. I had plenty of funds in my bank account, but every time I attempted to make a purchase the app claimed that there were no funds. I contacted my bank and they said that no one had even attempted any transactions. It was clearly a bug on their end, and when I reported it, they disabled buying on my account completely. I was unable to buy any amount of bitcoin, despite having thousands of dollars ready to transfer from my bank account. I had to sit and watch as the price of bitcoin soared, unable to buy any with the app I had spent several days setting up. As I watched the price soar, the only response I could get from customer service (which is only available via email) was that I “needed to have enough funds in my bank account”. The app has tons of bugs. The fees are high. The customer service is trash. I missed out on a great investment opportunity because of software bugs in this app. Don’t make the same mistake as me, find a different way to invest in bitcoin.
  • Coinbase Support service is the absolute worst and a total waste of time


    By Needs to be on Xbox or ps3
    I’ve been dealing with Coinbase Support for 6 weeks now and my issue still has not been resolved. You can only contact via email which takes days for them to reply and most times its a automated response. Once you actually get a real response its often vague and instructions that are already listed on their website. If you’re having issues with staking certain crypto currencies then good luck on getting them fixed because I am still unable to stake. They claim my account is unverified but yet I have went through the verification process numerous times and even have level 3 (highest level) verification on my account. I have tried contacting on social media and have gotten nowhere. I have tried callihg but can’t even get to speak to a person because they only will deal with account compromises over the phone which is a total load of crap. I would not recommend coinbase solely because their support services are atrocious. you are likely to have an issue when encountering this platform and will need their help at some point. I have friends who have had similar experiences in the past with different issues and experienced the same level of aggravation for coinbase support.
