Canadian customers can use a debit card to purchase digital currency. Funds purchased via a debit card will be credited to your account instantly. We do not support bank accounts as payment methods for Canadian customers.
Note: Coinbase no longer supports linking new credit cards and some card issuers are blocking digital currency purchases with existing credit cards. We encourage affected customers to switch to a debit card instead.
Note: 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.
Visit the payment methods page.
Select ‘Add Payment Method’ near the top of the page.
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 can now make a purchase by selecting your card on the payment methods menu on the Buy page.
