How long does a purchase or deposit take to complete?

Nov 09, 2016

In General

Coinbase generally makes your funds available in your account as soon as we receive payment. Since Coinbase partners with various payment service providers in different geographic regions, the timing will vary according to your location and payment method used.

You can see the delivery time of your orders at any time by clicking on the specific order on your history page.

 

US Customers

Purchases made using a credit or debit card or the USD wallet are made available instantly. 

When using bank transfers, the ACH bank transfer system is used for payments with your bank account. The ACH bank transfer system typically takes 3-5 business days* to complete after initiating a purchase. 

You may see the funds immediately debited from your bank account when you initiate the transfer, but the funds will not be transferred to your wallet until your payment has finished moving between the banks and clears in our bank account.
 

After the banks have processed the transfer, the funds enter our system and you will see the money in your account sometime before the end of the estimated delivery day. This date is shown on the confirmation window when placing your order and can be located in the order confirmation email you received from us. End of the day would be considered 11:59 PM PST, as we are based in San Francisco.
 

European Customers

Since your local currency is stored within your Coinbase Fiat Wallet account, all standard purchases, as well as those made with a credit or debit card, occur instantly.

Deposits to your EUR Wallet using SEPA transfers can take up to 2-3 business days to complete.

 

Canadian Customers

For Canadian Customers, purchases made using credit or debit cards are available instantly.
 

Australian Customers

For Canadian Customers, purchases made using credit or debit cards are available instantly. 
 

Singapore Customers

For Singapore Customers, deposits via our payment provider only take a couple of minutes to complete.

 

*Business days are Monday to Friday. Holidays and weekends are not counted as business days. When you place an order in the evening the ACH transfer is not started until the following business day. Your transaction details will always show the expected completion date of your order taking all these factors into account.
