Coinbase Card

For the Coinbase card you will have to download the card app from your app store. Here you will set everything up. Just have in mind you need to have 5 euro worth of crypto in your wallet to pay for the card.

But from the app when all setup you can set what crypto the card should use when you pay with the card.

Have in mind it’s not every country this card can ordered from.

Its very simple to add payments. Click your image top right corner to open a menu. In that menu click on settings. Now under settings go to Payment methods. There click on Add a payment method.

Now a window will open up where you can pick to add a card, bank account or paypal.
