Coinbase Pay Use Cases

Coinbase Pay delivers a seamless fiat to crypto onramp experience for users. Some of the use cases that developers can support with Coinbase Pay are listed below.


Users can:

  • Seamlessly add Coinbase funds to a self-custody wallet

    Crypto wallets can integrate Coinbase Pay into their mobile app and extension. Crypto wallet users can then trigger Coinbase Pay and seamlessly add funds to their self-custody wallet by either (1) purchasing crypto with their saved payment methods from their Coinbase account or (2) by transferring their existing crypto balance from their Coinbase account.

  • Add funds into a linked self-custody wallet without leaving the DeFi protocol

    DeFi protocols can integrate Coinbase Pay to allow their users to seamlessly fund and top-up their linked self-custody wallets. For example, users can link their self-custody wallet to a DeFi protocol but may not have enough funds in their wallet. Using Coinbase Pay, users can add funds into their linked self-custody wallet without leaving the DeFi protocol that they are interacting with.

  • Purchase/transfer ETH from a Coinbase account without leaving the NFT marketplace

    NFT marketplaces can integrate Coinbase Pay to allow their users to seamlessly fund and top-up their linked self-custody wallets. For example, users on NFT marketplaces may not have enough ETH in their linked self-custody wallet to complete a NFT purchase. Using Coinbase Pay, users can purchase or transfer ETH from their Coinbase account and complete the NFT purchase without leaving the NFT marketplace.
