Payment Methods for Canadian Customers

May 01, 2017

Coinbase offers support for credit and debit cards as payment methods for Canadian customers. Funds purchased via a credit/debit card will be credited to your account instantly. 

To add a credit or debit card

  • Visit the payment methods page.

  • Select ‘Add Payment Method’ near the top of the page.

  • Choose 'Credit/Debit Card' on the payment method selector.
  • If you have not already done so, you will be required to complete a photo ID verification.

  • When ID verification is complete, you will be brought back to the card verification screen. Enter your card information.

  • Accept the prompt explaining the 2 pending charges we'll make to your card.

  • Log in to your cardholder's account and check for the two small charges made.

  • 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 make a purchase by selecting your card on the payment methods menu on the Buy page.
