Trading Fees

Trading fees apply when you buy or sell a Cryptocurrency. There are two ways to trade on Coinbase Pro either by being a market maker (limit order) or a market taker (market order) which option you choose will affect the fees you pay.

Market Order

Market orders are the most straight forward to understand since you simply buy or sell at the current market rate, these trades have a fee of between 0.1-0.3%.

Limit Order

With a limit order you specify the price that you are willing to buy or sell at. By making an offer to the market to buy or sell at a certain level you are a market maker, which means that you are charged zero fees.

  1. Just a question, it says a bank transfer has zero fees, but I am in the UK and my UK bank account charges for overseas transfers, would a transfer of funds to Coinbase Pro be charged as an overseas transfer and therefore incur the charge?

    1. You would not be charged a fee by Coinbase. But yes if the target currency in your Coinbase Pro account is not the same as your native currency then you may be charged international banking fees by your bank. Check with the bank
