It’s very important that you review monthly statements or bills from companies like Coinbase every month. This will help you catch hidden Coinbase fees the moment they hit your account so that you are not surprised later.
Hidden Coinbase Fees
Hidden fees in your Coinbase bill are based on the services you use.
Coinbase uses a wallet service which stores US Dollars and cryptocurrency. There is no service fee for transferring money from one wallet service to another. However, there are:
When you buy, sell, or convert cryptocurrencies with your coinbase account, you get charged a fee based on:
Before you submit it for any transaction this amount will show up on your screen. You have to click an accept button to confirm that you saw this hidden fee in your Coinbase bill.
This is a hidden Coinbase fee of 2% on any exchanges, meaning conversions or purchases from USD to cryptocurrencies or from one cryptocurrency to another.
If you borrow dollars from Coinbase, they have loan agreements that allow this but they charge you a flat fee of 2% of however much you borrow in a credit transaction.
Coinbase offers cards affiliated with your wallet service. when you spend money with your card online there is no fee. However, there is a hidden transaction fee on all ATM withdrawals of 2.49%.
Coinbase allows you to stake your assets in a third party if you use cryptocurrency. There can be rewards on this investment minus a hidden Coinbase fee of 25% commission.
In some situations, you might notice hidden fees that are actually from a transaction that took place during the previous billing cycle. Even with Coinbase there are statements that come out every month just the same as with a regular checking account. That means transactions with your card or credit transactions that took place at the end of one month might not get processed until the following month which can result in what looks like hidden fees on your next statement.
If Coinbase incorrectly charged you a fee, start by contacting Coinbase customer service to see if they will fix it for you. If they won’t, you still have two legal options you can pursue:
