How to Open a Coinbase Business Account?

Today, Coinbase exchange is one of the best-known and reliable cryptocurrency exchanges. It is a very simple platform to buy and sell cryptocurrency. And 98 million verified users are the best proof of reliability. 

Unlike some other exchanges, Coinbase offers accounts for both individuals and companies. It is very comfortable for some businesses to own a personal commerce account on the exchange. If creating an account for yourself is quite simple, then starting one for a company turns out to be a bit more complicated.

Let’s find out how to open a Coinbase business account and have a quick look at its advantages, signup requirements, drawbacks, etc.

Coinbase Account vs Coinbase Business Account 

Honestly speaking, there are not so many differences between a Coinbase account and a Coinbase business account. It just depends on the user’s purposes and needs.

Coinbase business account differs from the ordinary just in one point: a Coinbase business account is registered under a company’s name and in the place of the use. In other words, it makes it possible to trade under a company name and enables funding with a number of bank accounts associated with the company. 

Coinbase business accounts users still have the opportunity to decide between the ordinary Coinbase and Coinbase Pro account types.

What other advantages does Coinbase business account have?

  • Security features.

Security has always been the main priority while investing in cryptocurrency. Moreover, each of the accounts have absolutely identical facilities.

  • Fees. 

Comparing Coinbase and Coinbase Pro, the second costs less. It also helps to make a sensible option in case the business has a huge amount of assets for trading. 

  • Institutional investing.

Institutional investing is one of the most popular uses of Coinbase business account type. It gives an ability to split up personal activities from the professional. 

  • Using Coinbase Commerce platform.

A Coinbase business account will be helpful if a trader uses the Coinbase Commerce platform. It would become much easier to accept cryptocurrency as payment for commodities or services and to track crypto payments as well. 

Coinbase Pro business account has more advanced trading options. However, studying the whole picture of Coinbase Pro from this point of view, might take a long time.

Coinbase Business Account: Pros and Cons

When we know the main facts of Coinbase accounts in general, let's have a closer look on Coinbase business account pros and cons. 

This type of account offers a few more advantages than the regular one. Here they are:

  • First, it is the segregation between personal and professional assets. 
  • Thanks to it, earnings and spending tracking becomes easier in addition to clearing some space when cryptocurrency business transactions happen.
  • Coinbase business accounts can restrict responsibility to prevent the unwanted mix between business and personal cryptocurrency assets. 
  • As for the drawbacks, some additional verification procedures are required during the registry. 
  • Approving a business account takes extra time.

Generally, all types of the Coinbase accounts have a lot in common. Yet, commerce accounts do have several cons:

  • Owning a Coinbase Pro account makes it possible to receive lower costs despite being a business or an individual trader. 
  • It may take less time for a commerce account user to strike the thresholds and get better price reductions. Yet, who knows whether individuals could gain absolutely the same luck or not?

Knowing all these facts, any trader can come up with their personal decision whether to get a Coinbase business account or not.

How to Open a Coinbase Business Account

When we know most of the pros and cons of the Coinbase accounts, it's high time to find out how to open a Coinbase business account. One more fact is that the business is supposed to be fully registered already and all the documents should be available on the hands to attach them in the application.

Creating a commerce account requires some more effort in comparison with creating a private account. The required fields of the registration include providing concrete information on the company:

  • Legal Entity Name;
  • Country and State of Incorporation;
  • Place of Operation;
  • Business Type;
  • Business Description;
  • Number of Employees Globally;
  • Fund Assets Under Management.

According to the Coinbase rules, the legal entity name should match the company that will use the Coinbase Business account. It also should match the name on the business bank account so as not to experience issues when funding the account.

Except for those necessary points, there are some optional ones too:

  • Doing Business As. This field is made in case the business is registered under one name, but operates using the other name. Providing other names is required.
  • Product of interest. A few options are available: Prime, Custody, Exchange, Analytics. While selecting the first two, it would be necessary to verify the possibility of meeting the minimum balance requirement.
  • Personalizing the account on which products and features to use.
  • Providing some private details: first and last name, extra email address, phone number, job title and additional contact details like LinkedIn URL or any other social media account.

In case a trader doesn't want to add this information, it is possible to omit it and simply tick a captcha and Submit. 

As the registration continues, it is necessary to verify the email address. The one supplied with the contact details.

Then traders have to provide proof of ownership status and some business registration documents. The list of the documents varies depending on the motherland country where the Coinbase commerce account is being registered and supposed to operate. On that stage Coinbase support comes to life and helps to finish the process. 

As it was mentioned before, time of verification varies.


Now it is all clear on how to open a Coinbase business account. And once it is done, don’t hesitate to start trading as the perfect time comes to try all the services and features selected while registration. It will help to continue the understanding of the peculiarity of the Coinbase business account.

To make the trading simpler and more comfortable, there’s a possibility to start using the Coinbase cryptocurrency wallet for withdrawing coins from the exchange.

However, it’s only up to you to decide whether to invest in Coinbase or find another exchange which would suit better.

The opinions and assessments expressed in the text are the views of the author of the article and may not represent the position of Cryptogeek. Do not forget that investing in cryptocurrencies and trading on the exchange is associated with risk. Before making decisions, be sure to do your own research on the market and the products you are interested in.

I actually know how it feels and how it hurts to lose money you have worked half of your life for to invest with the thoughts of getting returns when you are retired. Throughout my years in the history of binary trading this is the worst company I’ve encountered doing business with them. These people are so rude and unfriendly after they steal from you. I learnt the hard way and I made a promise never to deal with them anymore though I had to find a way of how I can get back my money from them. After doing a lot of research on how I can get all my money back, I was able to get a lasting solution from a recovery agent, Jeanson James Ancheta wizard. We got to have a conversation after I emailed him on ( or WhatsApp number: +447529524472., he explained to me what is needed and why it was needed. I decided to take my chances with him due to my desperations. After 5 days, he emailed back with great news. I was so relieved to be able to make this much (408,000USD out of 688,000USD) of a recovery after losing much more to the phonies. If you are out there and need to recover your funds from any type of online bitcoin fraud, I urge anyone out there to contact him once you notice that the people you are investing with start to give you excuses before it’s too late.

Reliable DeFi Versed Recovery Professionals!
Thoughts of crypto investing, I'm currently shunning from them. I happened to deal with this scrupulous crypto platform that I got invited to be a member and it resulted to losing quite a huge sum. I actually referred colleagues to also join the madness because of the returns, I mean, they were crazy good. We invested over 600,000usd cumulatively. The moment we made the withdrawal request was the beginning of our end. Why I say so, after a week or so a buddy had an emergency and needed some of their cash but we wouldn't be allowed to make withdrawals from the site. We quickly cooperated to find any reliable recovery professionals who maybe specialist in DeFi forensics related affairs. We came upon thecybergoat@) techie_ com team who we collaborated with and gave them all details concerning that trading platform. In just a week, I believe, thecybergoat team had us checking our phones and emails since our funds were ready for transfer back to our deposit wallets. These pros are mesmerizing! If swindled and need retrieval aid, I can offer a guarantee that thecybergoat@)techie_ com have your back!

Please keep in mind that it is important to be careful and take steps to protect yourself from future scams. One way to do this is to be very careful about the websites you visit and the links you click on, HI TECH recovery thought me to avoid giving out personal or financial information to unfamiliar websites. It is also important to use a secure Bitcoin wallet and to keep your private keys safe. You can do this by using a hardware wallet or by storing your private keys on a piece of paper that is kept in a safe place. If you have any questions or concerns about Bitcoin security and recovery of lost funds, please don't hesitate to ask HI TECH recovery because they are always happy to help.

I’m one of those few people who invested in the cryptocurrency market and was hoping to make enough profits after my retirement. Unfortunately, I had invested in a platform that was out to steal from me, I lost around $312,000 to this platform excluding the promised profits. I had lost every penny I invested into it including the money I had to borrow from friends. I thought it was all over until I came across a Cryptocurrency recovery expert, Spyweb Cyber Security, who helped me recover my money from these fake investors. It took Spyweb Cyber Security 48 hours to recover my money and I was able to track down these people. I’m truly grateful for their service and I highly recommend them to anyone with the problem.

I saw an opportunity to invest in cryptocurrency about two months ago and I took my chance. I contacted a broker who I saw videos on youtube and I invested a huge sum of money around £665,211 which was deposited using Bitcoin with hopes to gain massive returns on my investment. I kept tracking my portfolio and it was increasing daily on the website. It made me excited and confident. Fast forward to 30 Days after, which was supposed to be my payout date, I tried to make a withdrawal as I needed money to foot my bills and buy my new house, but the broker insisted that I continue to invest or will have to pay some fees to withdraw my funds. That was very disappointing to hear, because it was all going smoothly when I deposited the funds. Eventually, I paid the fees which was about £45,800. I was desperate now because according to my portfolio, I had made about £1,512,400. Now you see why I was willing to pay the fees. It turned out it was a scheme to keep asking me for more money for one thing or the other, like Taxes, miner fees and so many others. I declined, and instead I won’t pay more. They locked my account for several weeks. A month after, I saw a post on Quora about George Wizard Recovery Home which stated they were capable of getting my money recovered. With a little faith in me, I contacted them immediately, and discussed my situation, and sent all the information I had. In less than a week, I was able to recoup my BTC. I praise the universe for sending them my way. I wish to recommend them to everyone out there. they are capable of recover any crypto coins Bitcoin, Usdt ,Eth, Dogecoin, now i have my funds back with there guidelines and skills you can always contact them via EMAIL : Contact ( via WhtsAp : +1 (908) 768-4663

RecoveryBureauC @ gmail c0m offers five star mobile phone monitoring and assets recovery solution. The new AI technology has been the latest trick used by many fake cryptocurrency investment theft. I fell for this deceit just last week when I got a phone call from someone who impersonated my close friend and introduced me to this investment project. He describes just exactly like her and how she’s been benefiting from the profits of the investment so I decided to invest not knowing I would get tricked. I almost lost about 858,000 USDT of my inheritance funds and money borrowed from different loan agents on this Chinese investment platform. After few days of losing this huge funds I did thorough search for help and I found RecoveryBureauC @ gmail, c0m whom I reported my situation. I opened a case with this team and they assured me of a swift action immediately. To my surprise within few hours I reached out to them they were able to retrieve the first tranche of my stolen funds and the remaining subsequently. Their services were seamless and perfect without any hassle. I’m glad I got rescued and I’ll urge you to look this firm up for all asset recovery help. Other services are phone monitoring, catch a suspected cheating spouse, tax evasion, boost of credit scores, erasing of bad debts etc

( MorrisGray830 At gmail Dot Com, is the man for the job ) This man is dedicated to his work and you can trust him more than yourself. I contacted him a year and a half Ago and he didn’t succeed. when i got ripped of $491,000 worth of bitcoins by scammers, I tried several recovery programs with no success too. I kept on. And now after so much time Mr Morris Gray contacted me with a success, and the reward he took was small because obviously he is doing this because he wants to help idiots like me who fell for crypto scam, and love his job. Of course he could have taken all the coins and not tell me , I was not syncing this wallet for a year, but he didn’t. He is the MAN guys , He is! If you have been a victim of crypto scam before you can trust Morris Gray 10000000%. I thought there were no such good genuine guys anymore on earth, but Mr Morris Gray brought my trust to humanity again. GOD bless you sir…you can reach him via ( MORRIS GRAY 830 at Gmaill dot com ) or Whatsapp +1 (607)698-0239..

I was a victim approximately seven months ago. Through  a phishing scam, a grifter gained access to my account. They made off with 2.8 BTC. I was horrified. I attempted everything to get my money refunded by contacting support, but they can not even help me. However, a friend of mine told me about a recovery expert with the mail (jeffsilbert39 @ gmail • com). he assisted me in combating different investment fraudsters, but I can only thank God that I was able to reclaim my funds DM him on whatsapp +84 94 7671524.
