Note: This article describes how to receive digital currency from other wallets or individuals. If you'd like to buy digital currency, please see this page to learn more.

You can use your Coinbase wallet to receive supported digital currencies* by publicly displaying a wallet address or by providing one of your wallet addresses to someone directly. If you are receiving from another Coinbase customer, you can have them send digital currency to the email address you used when creating your account. To find a wallet address, click 'Wallet Address' near the top right corner of the account page, or by navigating here (be sure to select the correct currency account). To find a QR code / address using the mobile app:
 

iOS

  1. Tap the QR icon in the upper right. 
  2. Tap 'My address' near the top of the screen.
  3. Allow the sender to scan your QR code or click 'Copy Address' and send your address to the other party.

Android

  1. Tap the QR icon in the upper right. 
  2. Tap 'My address' near the top of the screen.
  3. Allow the sender to scan your QR code or click 'Copy Address' and send your address to the other party.
