Choose an upload method: Webcam or Mobile Camera. If you have a webcam, select Webcam. Note: Sometimes, due to the glare from the computer screen, this method may fail. If it fails, you can retake the photo. If it fails consistently, you will need to upload your Photo ID using your mobile phone see below.
Select the Mobile Phone option. A link will be sent to your mobile phone. Click the link that was sent to your mobile phone, and upload the photos to that address the photos you just took. This is usually the easiest way to upload the photos.
Repeat this step when requested to submit other forms of ID. For example, if they ask for a utility bill electric bill, gas bill, etc. The utility bill photo should include your name, address, and at least some identifying information about the utility company their name and logo on the bill, etc. Note: You need to verify your identity as explained in the previous step before you can add a payment method.
Select your payment method. You can choose to buy digital currency using a bank account, debit card, or credit card. Bank account: If you use a bank account, it may take 4 to 5 days, and possibly even longer, to verify your account. However, once it has been verified, a bank account will allow you a higher buying limit, meaning you can buy more cryptocurrencies than with a credit or debit card.
If you want to buy a cryptocurrency right away, you can add a bank account, and then while waiting for the bank account to be verified you can use a debit or credit card for your initial purchase. Debit or Credit Card: If you want to buy digital currencies immediately, you can use a debit or credit card. But if you only want to invest a small amount of money, adding a bank account is not necessary.
The next step is to buy cryptocurrency in your Coinbase account. Wallets are where your cryptocurrencies are stored. Figure 3 demonstrates the areas of the trading page for bitcoin BTC. Your available balance will be shown at the top left of the menus. Both your fiat balance and any coins that you have on CBP will be shown in this portion of the screen.
Your Coinbase wallet holdings do not display in your CBP account. The most recent trading price is displayed at top of the screen, and the order book will show those orders closest to the current trading price. Red is used to display open Sell orders in system while open Buy orders are shown indicated by green text.
In Fig. You can scroll this order list to see more open Buy or Sell orders. Placing a Market Buy order is straightforward. To purchase the selected currency, confirm that the green Buy option is highlighted, enter the desired dollar amount of currency you wish to buy. The estimated amount of cryptocurrency you will receive displays below your entry.
Be sure to enter amounts correctly, as the order will be filled nearly instantaneously. There is no cancel option once a Market order is placed. Check for extra zeros before placing the order. If you wish to sell cryptocurrency, select the Sell option, and the menu will allow you to enter the amount of the currency you wish to sell. The amount entered must be the number of coins you wish to sell, not a dollar amount. The estimated value of the trade will display below the order entry box.
Again, triple check your entry before Place Sell Order. When entering CBP orders on phones or tablets, the mobile interface may display tabbed menu options at the bottom of the page to switch between Trade, Book orders in system, Charts, Orders your orders and History recently executed trade list rather than displaying everything on one screen.
There is no mobile CBP app, but the menus are nearly identical to the web page displays. The interface is easy to use once you understand the options. Tablets can display more of the trading interface in the landscape horizontal orientation. Experiment with your devices to determine how pages are displayed. Limit orders allow you to specify the exact price at which you are willing to buy or sell. Limit orders give you complete control over your purchases. By placing Limit orders, you can turn crypto price volatility into an advantage rather than a drawback.
Always keep in mind that, while Limit orders can be used to boost your returns, your orders may never execute if the market price continues to move away from the specified price. Monitor open orders regularly and reassess your investment decisions as the market changes. Enter the number of coins you wish to purchase then enter the price you are willing to pay. Fig 6 demonstrates an order for 0. Be very careful to check your entries. It is easy to transpose these numbers which could lead to an expensive mistake.
You can cancel orders that have not yet executed in this section of the screen. Each time you place a Limit Buy order, the money necessary for execution of that order is placed on hold and deducted from your balance shown on the top left of the page. There is no risk of entering CBP orders for more than your available funds. Any attempt at doing so will result in an error message.
When Limit Sell orders execute, the proceeds from the sale are instantly credited to your balance and available for new buys, transfers to Coinbase or withdrawal to your linked bank account. When you cancel an open order, your available balance will update.
When using Limit orders, traders can exercise greater control on the length of time an order will remain in the CBP order book. These options are found in the Advanced drop down menu. You can also set a specific time period for which the order remains open. The other two options are a little less straightforward. The order will execute at the price you specify, or it will be canceled and removed from the system immediately.
If only a portion of the order can be filled when it is placed, this will result in a partial fill and the remainder will be canceled. This type of order is only useful when buying or selling at very close to market price, and typically is reserved for larger orders to increase the odds that the trader will get at least some portion of the order filled.
No partial fill can occur. This forces your trade to execute without Taker fees, which can be higher. Be sure to check your own CBP fee page in the top right drop down menu since each currency has different trading fees and there are variable fee rebates depending on account trading volumes and length of time account has been open. A Stop Sell order allows you to determine the lowest price at which you wish to sell an asset to prevent loss of value. You can think of Stop orders as a combination of the Limit and Market orders explained earlier.
You cannot enter a standard Limit Sell order below current price because it would execute immediately. This is where Stop orders come into play. As most readers know, cryptocurrency prices are often subject to fairly significant swings on a daily or weekly basis. Day traders, arbitragers, and short-term investors try to profit from those big moves by moving in and out of positions fairly quickly, often using Limit and Stop Limit orders to increase returns and decrease risks.
Long-term buyers and sellers can also take advantage of these price swings by entering Limit orders using a tiered pricing structure. In order to do this, divide the amount you wish to invest into smaller portions. If you are certain you want to enter the market soon, place the price limit near the current last trade.
