Why Did Coinbase Charge Me $100?

The most likely reason that Coinbase charged you $100 is because you made a purchase using a credit or debit card. When you use a credit or debit card to make a purchase, the card issuer generally charges a fee. This fee is typically around 3% of the transaction amount.

NOTE: WARNING: You should be aware that Coinbase may charge you a fee of up to $100 for certain transactions. This is usually done when a customer attempts to purchase an item that exceeds the amount available in their account, or if the transaction is considered a high-risk purchase. It is important to review the Coinbase user agreement for more information on fees and any other charges that may apply.

So, if you made a $100 purchase with your credit or debit card, the card issuer would charge a $3 fee. Coinbase likely passed this fee on to you, hence the $100 charge.

There are a few other reasons why Coinbase may have charged you $100, but the most likely reason is that you used a credit or debit card to make your purchase. If you have any questions about the charges on your account, we recommend reaching out to Coinbase directly for clarification.
