Exchange rate on Coinbase


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,


I know this is a silly question for you advanced investors, and you will probably roll your eyes.  I thought I understood how this all works but I am a bit confused now.  Can anyone just give me an idea of how the exchange rate works with Coinbase when you are from the UK?  I have looked at the Coinbase website for an explanation but it still doesn't seem to fit, so I am a bit unsure.  I have substantial funds to transfer but don't want to do so and find out later that I have lost a lot through unfavorable exchange rates. 


I transfer from my UK bank account in Euros to Coinbase EUR Wallet.  When I do this the UK bank website uses the exchange rate at the time (0.88 it has been recently).  However when i look at my bank account a couple of days later the exchange rate seems to be closer to 0.92. ...i.e. I transfer 1000 Euros but instead of 880 Pounds going from my account about 920 gone when I look a couple of days later. HOW? is this  a Coinbase charge - using higher exchange rates?


Also - if I transfer money back from Coinbase to my account should I use the EUR Wallet or the GBP Wallet to do so??


I have totally confused myself with this and could do with some simple guidance/explanation.
