Coinbase accounts-Hawaii

Although we strive to provide continuous access to Coinbase services in all states in the US, Coinbase must indefinitely suspend its business in Hawaii.

The Hawaii Division of Financial Institutions (DFI) has communicated regulatory policies which we believe will render continued Coinbase operations there impractical.

In particular, we understand that the Hawaii DFI will require licensure of entities which offer certain virtual currency services to Hawaii residents. Although Coinbase has no objection to this policy decision, we understand the Hawaii DFI has further determined that licensees who hold virtual currency on behalf of customers must maintain redundant fiat currency reserves in an amount equal to the aggregate face value of all digital currency funds held on behalf of customers. Although Coinbase securely maintains 100% of all customer funds on behalf of our customers, it is impractical, costly, and inefficient for us to establish a redundant reserve of fiat currency over and above customer digital currency secured on our platform.

We ask Hawaii customers to please:
  1. Remove any digital currency balance from your Coinbase Account. Please note that you may remove digital currency from your Coinbase Account by sending your digital currency to an alternate digital currency wallet.
  2. Remove all of your US Dollar balance from your Coinbase account by transferring to your bank account.
  3. Lastly, visit this page to close your Account.

We understand this suspension will inconvenience our Hawaii customers and we apologize that we cannot currently project if or when our services may be restored.

You can buy cryptocurrency with a credit or debit card if your card supports "3D Secure". With this payment method, you will not have to pre-fund your account to buy cryptocurrency. You can purchase cryptocurrency instantly without waiting for a bank transfer to complete.

To find out if your card supports 3D Secure, contact your credit/debit card provider directly or simply try adding it to your Coinbase account. You will get an error message if your card does not support 3D Secure.

The following steps will get you started:
  1. When logged into your account, go to the Payment methods page
  2. Select Add a Credit/Debit Card at the top of the page
  3. Enter your card information (The address must match the billing address for the card)
  4. If needed, add a billing address for the card
  5. You should now see a window that says Credit Card Added and a Buy Digital Currency option
  6. You can now buy digital currency using the Buy/Sell Digital Currency page anytime

The following steps will walk you through the 3DS purchase process:
  1. Go to the Buy/Sell Digital Currency page
  2. Enter the desired amount
  3. Select the card on the payment methods drop down menu
  4. Confirm the order is correct and select Complete Buy
  5. You will be directed to your banks website (Process differs depending on bank)

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)


How do I verify my bank info?

Attention
Linking your bank account is only available in these regions at this time: US, (most of) EU, UK.

In some cases, you may need to contact your bank.

When you add a payment method, two small verification amounts will be sent to your payment method. You must enter these two amounts correctly in your payment methods from your Settings in order to finish verifying your payment method.

Bank verification amounts are sent to your bank and appear on your online statement and on your paper statement. For faster verification, youll need to access your online bank account and search for Coinbase.


Bank Account

For bank accounts, the two amounts will be sent as credits. If you dont see your credits, please try the following:
  1. Check your upcoming or pending transactions in your online bank account
  2. You may need to check your full bank statement, as these transactions may be omitted from some online banking apps and websites. A paper statement may be necessary
  3. If you dont see these transactions, speak with your bank to help track down any hidden or omitted details on your statement. Some banks will merge the verification credits, showing only the total amount
  4. If none of the previous options work, visit your payment methods page and remove and re-add the bank to have the credits sent again. Re-sending the verification credits will void the first pair sent, so you may end up with more than one pair of verification credits

If you are using an "online bank" or similar banking product offered by your bank, you may not receive the verification credits. In this case, the only option is to try another bank account.


Debit Card

For cards, these verification amounts will be sent as charges. Coinbase will make two test charges to the card of amounts between 1.01 and 1.99 in your local currency. These should appear in the recent activity section of your card issuers website as pending or processing charges.

Please note:
  • Charges for exactly 1.00 are not used for card verification and can be ignored. These are caused by the card processing network, and are separate from the Coinbase verification amounts
  • Neither the verification amounts nor the 1.00 charges will post to your card—they are temporary. They will display as pending for up to 10 business days, then disappear.

If you dont see the verification amounts in your card activity, please try the following:
  1. Wait 24 hours. Some card issuers may take longer to display the pending amounts
  2. If you dont see the test charges appear after 24 hours, contact your bank or card issuer to ask if they can provide the amounts of any pending Coinbase authorizations
  3. If your card issuer is unable to find the charges, or if the amounts have already been removed, return to the payment methods page and select verify next to your card. You will see an option to re-charge your card at the bottom
  4. Sometimes your card issuer may flag one or all of these verification amounts as fraudulent and block the charges. If that is the case, you will need to contact your card issuer to stop the blocking, and then restart the verification process


How to successfully verify a billing address

If you receive an "Address did not match" error when adding a Visa or MasterCard debit card, it means the information you entered may not be verifying correctly with your credit cards issuing bank.

To fix this error:
  1. Confirm that there are no missing characters or misspellings in the name and address you entered, and that the card number you are entering is correct.
  2. Make sure that the billing address you are entering is the same billing address that is on file with your card provider. If you have recently moved, for example, this information may be out of date.
  3. Enter only the street address on line 1. If your address contains an apartment number, do not add the apartment number in line 1.
  4. Contact your credit cards service number and verify the exact spelling of your name and address on file.
  5. If your address is on a numbered street, spell out the name of your street. For example, enter "123 10th St." as "123 Tenth St."
  6. If at this point you still receive an "address did not match" error please contact Coinbase support.

Also note that only Visa and MasterCard debit cards are supported at this time. Prepaid cards or cards without residential billing addresses, even those with the Visa or MasterCard logo, are not supported.


When will I receive my cryptocurrency from my card purchase?

Some payment methods such as credit and debit cards may require you to confirm all transactions with your bank. After starting a transaction, you may be sent to your banks website to authorize the transfer (Not applicable to US customers).

Funds will not be debited from your bank, or credited to your Coinbase account, until the authorization process on your banks site is complete (US customers will see the bank transfer complete immediately with no confirmation through your bank). This process usually only takes a few minutes. If you choose to not authorize the transfer, no funds will be transferred and the transaction will usually expire after about one hour.

Note: Only applicable to certain US, EU, AU, and CA customers.


What is the minimum amount of cryptocurrency that I can purchase?

You can purchase or sell as little as 2.00 of digital currency denominated in your local currency ($2 or €2 for example).
