Coinbase supports multiple payment methods for Singapore customers to make a purchase, including bank transfers (via 3rd party) and credit/debit card. Each of these methods is detailed below.
You can verify your phone number using the code you receive via SMS on the following screen.
Once you have completed the phone verification step, you will be shown the deposit details for your newly created account, which will be used to purchase digital currency here at Coinbase.
Lastly, you will need to provide a scan of your government-verified Singapore ID. We provide a secure upload portal for you to use to send this document.
Once the ID verification step is complete and your 3rd party account is funded, you will be ready to start making purchases.

There is no fee to transfer funds to Coinbase. Deposits clear within a couple of minutes, at which time your funds are available for immediate use. Normal withdrawals take 2-3 business days to complete. Some partners offer expedited withdrawals for a fee of S$2.99. Expedited withdrawals process the same day.
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 or linked bank account 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 or bank account.
You can add and charge a credit/debit card (Visa/MasterCard) directly when making a purchase. Funds purchased via this option 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.
