You can provide your documents in three different ways. The easiest way, if you don't have a digital photocopy of your document, is to click on "Mobile camera" and follow the instructions to take a picture of your document. If you have a digital copy of your document, click on "File Download" to provide your document from your computer.

Here, you just have to drag and drop your two documents each in its own area. The first area for the front of your document and the second for the back of your document.

Then click "To download".

Your document is being verified. This step should take about 2 to 3 minutes.

Once you have verified your identity, you will arrive on this page.

Last step of your registration, add your credit card.

Congratulations! Now you have a Coinbase account. Scroll down this page to find out how to deposit funds.

The next step is to deposit funds on the Coinbase platform.

There are two ways to deposit:

  • By credit card
  • By bank transfer

1. Deposit by bank transfer

First, click on your logo in the upper right corner and click on "Settings".

This will take you to your account's login page.

Then open the "Payment methods" tab.

Then click on the "Add a payment method" button.

Here you can select "Paypal" which is only a withdrawal option and not a deposit option, then "Euro bank account" which is the option we are interested in and also "Bank card" which is the deposit by bank card.

So select the "Euro bank account" option.

On this page, you must add the name of your bank in the "Name of the bank" field, then your IBAN in the "IBAN" field, then the BIC in the "BIC" field and then click on "Verify your account".

You will arrive on this page which explains that you will have to make a transfer of a small amount from your bank account (the one you just added) to Coinbase so that you can deposit and withdraw with your bank account.

Here you have the bank information of Coinbase.

Now you have to make a small transfer to Coinbase.

The processing time is 1 to 3 working days. You will receive an email when you can deposit or withdraw directly with your bank account.

2. Deposit by credit card

On the home page, click on the "Buy Sell" button on the top right.

On this new page, stay on the "To buy" tab. Select "One-time purchase" and click on "Custom".

Then write down the amount of your deposit.
