The Complete Guide to Coinbase Withdrawals 202210 min read

As a cryptocurrency investor, you are probably familiar with centralized exchanges such as Coinbase.

However, if you’re new to Coinbase, you might not know that it offers a way to withdraw your funds or exactly how to do it anyway.

In this article, I’ll walk you through how to withdraw with Coinbase and give some tips to make the process as easy as possible.

Can you withdraw from Coinbase with a debit card?

Yes! But only if you use a Visa debit card. As of August 2016, Coinbase payment processors created an updated policy.

The new policy says that if your account receives too many refunds or disputes, your ability to withdraw to a debit card may be limited or stopped altogether. This does not apply to Coinbase credit card processors.

If you use a non-Visa debit card, your ability to withdraw cash may be limited or interrupted.

There have been complaints of users being unable to withdraw funds from their Coinbase account with their debit card, but this appears to be an issue, especially for those using non-Visa debit cards.

If you’re using a Visa debit card and having trouble withdrawing money, try contacting Coinbase support for help.

Does Coinbase have withdrawal limits?

Coinbase Withdrawal Limit

The answer to this question is yes. Coinbase has withdrawal limits for individual and institutional investors. The withdrawal limit for individual users is $10,000 per day. In contrast, the withdrawal limit for institutional and organizational investors is $50,000 daily.

These withdrawal limits are put in place to protect Coinbase users from losing money if something happens to the exchange. It also ensures that Coinbase can handle large withdrawals if needed.

If you need to withdraw more than the daily limit, please contact Coinbase support to increase the limit. However, there are no assurances that your application will be accepted.

In the future, Coinbase hopes to launch a feature allowing unlimited withdrawals within 24 hours. There is a cap of $15,000 per month without going through a verification process.

How do I increase my Coinbase withdrawal limit?

There are different ways to increase your Coinbase withdrawal limit:

Verification methods

You’ve probably heard about how identity verification works for cryptocurrency exchanges. It’s quite simple: it usually requires verification if you want to withdraw more than $10,000 in 24 hours.

Increase your payment frequency

Coinbase allows you to increase your identity verification frequency, which will increase your withdrawal limit. The maximum you can do is once every six months, but it’s a good way to do it if you want to withdraw more money regularly.

Use a different email address.

It’s as simple as it sounds – if you use a different email address for Coinbase, you’ll get a higher withdrawal limit.

Use a credit card

If you add a credit card to your Coinbase account, the daily withdrawal limit will increase to $25,000.

While all of these methods are great for increasing your Coinbase withdrawal limit, it’s important to remember that these limits can change.

How long does it take to withdraw from Coinbase?

It usually takes between 1-2 business days for a Coinbase withdrawal to complete. Sometimes a little more, sometimes a little less.

When you find that more than a day or two has passed and your coins haven’t arrived yet, you may be wondering if something went wrong.

Fortunately, nothing went wrong; your transaction took a little longer. Coinbase withdrawals are made in two steps:

The first step is advanced network processing called blockchain confirmation. It can take up to an hour. Then, once the network confirms the transaction, proceed to the second step of transferring funds from Coinbase storage to your wallet outside the Coinbase system.

This part usually only takes a few minutes but can take up to a day, depending on how busy the Coinbase storage servers are and the mempool backup (the list of transactions awaiting confirmation from the network).

Where is the Coinbase accelerated withdrawal button?

The “Accelerate Withdrawal” button can be found in the “History” tab of your Coinbase account. Log in to Coinbase and click on the “History” tab at the top of the page to find it. Then find the transaction you want to accelerate and click on the “Actions” drop-down menu. Finally, select “accelerate withdrawal.”

Please note that you can only expedite withdrawals for transactions that the Coinbase network has confirmed. If the transaction is still pending, it will not be eligible for acceleration.

Why can’t I withdraw money from Coinbase?

The two most common reasons why you cannot withdraw money from Coinbase are:

  • Account not yet verified: To withdraw funds from Coinbase, you must first verify your account by completing the identity verification process. This process requires you to provide documents proving your identity.
  • Account has been blocked: Coinbase may block an account if it suspects that the account has been used for illegal activity or fraud. If your account is blocked, you will not be able to withdraw funds from it.

Why is Coinbase canceling my withdrawal?

There can be several reasons:

  • The withdrawal was attempted shortly after the last transaction: Coinbase has a policy prohibiting users from withdrawing within 24 hours of a previous transaction. This protects against fraud and ensures that all transactions are processed smoothly.
  • The withdrawal was not made accurately: You must enter a valid email address and phone number when making a withdrawal. If this data is not entered correctly, the withdrawal will be canceled.
  • There may be an issue with your account: If your account has been flagged for any reason, your withdrawals may be reversed. This could be due to a problem with your payment method or a violation of Coinbase’s terms and conditions.
  • The withdrawal amount is too high: Coinbase has a maximum amount limit to be withdrawn in a single transaction. If the withdrawal amount exceeds this limit, it will be canceled.

If your withdrawal is canceled, you can always try again later. Be sure to check all the information you enter to ensure no errors. And if you continue to have issues with your withdrawals, contact Coinbase support for assistance.

Can I withdraw from Coinbase Pro to a bank account?

Yes, you can withdraw funds from Coinbase Pro to a bank account, but you will need to wait for the restrictions on your existing Coinbase Pro account to expire before you can withdraw funds to your bank account.

Additionally, you will need to provide verification information before you can withdraw your funds. 

Can I withdraw from my Coinbase account during the weekend?

Coinbase does not accept withdrawals on weekends, as this is a time when most banks are closed. You cannot transfer your savings to your bank account during this period.

If the transaction takes place when Coinbase is unavailable or offline, you will have to wait until Monday for the withdrawal to take place.

However, if you have not scheduled the transaction before Friday evening, your payment will be delayed until Monday morning.

Can you withdraw money from Coinbase without verification?

You cannot withdraw your Coinbase funds at this time without verifying your account. This means that you will need to provide identification, such as a passport or a driver’s license.

One of the main reasons for this is that Coinbase wants to remain compliant with KYC (Know Your Customer) and AML (Anti-Money Laundering) laws. These laws are designed to prevent criminals from using cryptocurrency exchanges.

If you want to avoid these verification procedures, there is a way to do it. However, you will need two things for this method to work: an Android device and a desktop wallet.

What are the fees when withdrawing from Coinbase?

On Coinbase, withdrawal fees are charged to withdraw funds from your Coinbase account to another wallet. These fees vary depending on the currency withdrawn and the withdrawal method.

Users usually pay network fees and miner fees. Network fees are what the blockchain charges for processing the transaction. The miner’s commission is what is paid to the miner who verifies the transaction and adds it to the blockchain.

Coinbase tries to ensure that users pay the lowest network fees possible, but there is no way to guarantee this. In some cases, network fees may be higher than miner fees. If this happens, Coinbase will automatically use the higher rates.

The amount charged for withdrawing money from Coinbase also depends on the country you are withdrawing from. For example, US users pay a flat rate for all withdrawals to a US bank account. Many users have found that their first withdrawal is free, but subsequent withdrawals incur fees.

In some cases, network fees may be higher than miner fees. If this happens, Coinbase will automatically use the higher rates.

Can I instantly withdraw Bitcoins from Coinbase?

The answer is yes and no. Coinbase allows you to instantly withdraw Bitcoin from the platform, but certain conditions must be met for this to happen.

To get started, you must have a verified Coinbase account. Also, the daily withdrawal limit must be at least $500. Finally, the amount of Bitcoin you wish to withdraw must be less than your total account balance.

If you meet these conditions, you can instantly withdraw Bitcoin from Coinbase. However, if you do not meet one or more of these criteria, you will have to wait for your withdrawal to be processed. This can take between a few minutes to a few days, depending on the amount you withdraw and network congestion.


With Coinbase, withdrawals are usually processed within two days of the withdrawal request. If you have any questions about how withdrawals work with your account, please contact customer service. You can check out our other post on how to transfer from Coinbase to Coinbase pro.
