So I was able to purchase 500.00 a week with my card at coinbase. Any time I've had to log out for whatever reason and or change devices I've reverfied, but the kicker is this...I got a new phone and got everything up and running and once again verifying to find my limit is now a whopping 15.00 a week card purchases. Im so fed up with coinbase its just unreal BUT....here's what I appreciate, the fact I can buy and send but also tie my paypal to the account and send instantly to it.

But i emailed them to explain hey I was at 500.00 a week ,I switched devices and now I'm 15 a week and the reply was like some piece of shit robot reply saying

"Our records indicate that you previously requested an increase to your Coinbase purchasing limits. After review, Coinbase has determined that your account is currently not eligible for a limit increase."

I replied to say no that was weeks ago, I was at 500 and now 15 after switching phones and verifying and they replied sorry this is a final decision. So what a bunch of fucking idiots , unreal

Is cash app the next best option to buy ? Or coinmama maybe ?

I really need to get a good btc setup because its absolutely ridiculous.

What other places can you buy with low send fees ?

Do you want to try Coinjar they pretty good, just google it and see if it suits you :)

I have been using them for a few years now and I think they dropped their fees as well.

I ditched coinbase years ago. Ive been using crypto.com app for several months no problems. They have had no fees for credit cards which is nice. But I think that promo ends this month unfortunately. Limits arent an issue either. My weekly is absurd like 25k.

Using crypto.com little bit as well, they also offer debit card where you can transfer funds from crypto or fiat wallet so if you sometimes wanna also use them they are quite handy. They support enough coins and have some perks like cashbacks from card payments etc....

Not keeping huge amounts there but like to have some in place where i can use them ie. for card purchases online etc... when some coins are quiet volatile, often change some to fiat -> card and use bit and buy again when cheaper etc... Haven't have any problems with them. Bank transfers there usually hit account latest next banking day and same if you wanna withdraw from there.

Regarding coinbase, I think if you're okay waiting ~4 business days you should be able to use an EFT transfer from a bank account, It's unlikely they would limit that unless you were doing tens of thousands. Otherwise their fees are pretty high, 5% or so for credit card. For EFT deposits there's no fee, you transfer your money to coinbase pro, just market buy and it's a .5% fee. If you do the exact same thing on the normal "coinbase" side it's like a 1.2% fee instead.

I haven't really looked into it that closely in a while but yeah cashapp could be worth a shot, their customer service also sucks though. Think it's like a 1.8%-2% fee, or that's what I'd heard before. Not sure if there are better options these days or not.

Coinbase I remember completing verification then being offered to buy Crypto but when I tried it said my account was 'limited' so I couldn't. I messaged them & they didn't have an answer as to why only that it was 'being looked at' I gave up messaging them as I was getting nowhere then weeks after that my account just started working on verification tier two. No explanation was ever given.

I use Wirex too. You can have a debit card with it but they charge you £1/mth for the card. Coinbase's debit card is free other than the initial £5 issuance charge.

I just dont get why the drop. I was making 500.00 a week work, but then lol 15? Are they serious?

Then to show the hilarity of it all, I go to coinmama and WHILE they were waiting to verify me my limit was 1500.00 to purchase. An hour later verified and my limit is 15,000.00 to purchase.

Same, Coinbase banned me as well. I got lazy a few times and would withdraw straight to CB or vice versa instead of using an intermediate wallet.
