The "transactions" page on Coinbase is very confusing.

The transaction date changes. While pending, it's the date I initiated it. Once completed, it changes to the date they withdrew / deposited money into my bank account. All transactions are sorted by date, which really means transactions are not in order. There should be two date fields -- initiated, and completed.

Also, no dollar amount is shown in the main table. I have to click on each transaction to see the dollar amount for that transaction. That's a lot of clicking for info they could have easily put in the table.


Even if you use Bitcoin through Tor, the way transactions are handled by the network makes anonymity difficult to achieve. Do not expect your transactions to be anonymous unless you really know what you're doing.

I had assumed that if I have money in my bank account, I can keep buying. Not so, apparently, because of delays between purchase and bank transfer.

Very confusing.

Thanks for the feedback! These are great suggestions for ways to improve the transactions page - I'll see what we can do.

Also, your first purchase must clear before you can make additional purchases. Once the first purchase is complete you are free to buy repeatedly, restrained only by your daily limit.

Hi Olaf,

Just to be clear, I really like Coinbase and use it a lot. I just wish some things in the user interface were clearer.

Another idea. Clearly state the total dollar amount that is pending withdrawal from each of my bank accounts. This way, I will know not to spend that money. Otherwise, it's hard to tell how much Coinbase is planning to withdraw from my bank.

Thanks.

You really need to have more detail on the transactions page.  After I sell bitcoin on Coinbase there is no way for me to go back and look at what the exchange rate was, or really anything about the transaction other than the amount of BTC sold and the total amount.  It should list the exchange rate as well as the fees etc.

You should also be able to filter transactions depending on whether they're USB or BTC and see which USD deposits are still pending.
