Pricing

Receiving bitcoin payments is completely free on Coinbase.

If you decide to cash out your bitcoins to a bank account we charge a 1% fee — but only after your first $1,000,000 in sales.

Volume discount pricing is available if you’re processing more than $1,000,000 per month.

Instant Exchange

You can also enable Instant Exchange to instantly convert all of your bitcoin sales to your local currency as soon as you receive them, with a daily transfer to your bank. This way you do not have to expose your business to any bitcoin price volatility.

Micro-Transactions

The smallest payment supported across most of the bitcoin network is about 0.001 BTC (currently about $0.34 USD). However, if the customer is paying with a Coinbase wallet, transactions as low as 1 satoshi (0.00000001 BTC) are possible. These make use of off blockchain transactions.

If your application requires micro-transactions below 0.001 BTC, the customer will need to pay using a Coinbase account.

Miner Fees

The bitcoin network requires a small fee (usually 0.0005 to 0.0001 BTC) to ensure payments arrive quickly. When a customer pays from a Coinbase wallet, we pay this fee on the customer’s behalf so they don’t need to include it. If the customer pays from a non-Coinbase wallet, they will need to include their own miner fee to ensure it arrives promptly.
