- Select ‘Add Payment Method’ near the top of the page.Choose 'Credit/Debit Card' on the payment method selector.
- Enter your card information (The address must match the billing address for the card).
- Coinbase will make 2 temporary authorizations to the card, which you will need to verify with your card issuer and enter to complete the setup of your card.
- Enter those amounts on the Coinbase verification screen.
- You should now see a window that says “Credit/Debit Card Added’ and a ‘Buy Digital Currency’ button.
- You can now buy digital currency using the Buy page anytime.
Coinbase no longer supports linking new credit cards and some card issuers are blocking digital currency purchases with existing credit cards. If you have a credit card linked already, your bank may charge additional fees for Coinbase credit card purchases. To avoid these fees, switch to debit card or bank account.
