    Default Bit upset right now Coinbase

    Ok, so seedsman recommended coinbase. I get my funds from my bank account put into coinbase. They put a 15 day hold on. Now, if I had been warned in advance by seedsman, who again, recommend coinbase, this wouldn't be an issue.

    I am unable to use a debit card, which comes from the same bank account, but if I can get it authorized, I can use funds immediately.

    Back to coinbase. I called last Wednesday to see if they could give me an early release. They say that it shouldn't be an issue. I checked back this morning and apparently it was an issue, was declined immediately and they just weren't going to tell me unless I asked.

    So meanwhile I have lost another day, will have to reorder, try to get a payment method going and probably lose out on some of the special.

    I'm really unhappy with both Coinbase and Seedsman right now. I imagine that I won't ever do business with either of these again and will tell anyone who cares about the shade of it all.

    first time is always a pain in the ass but loads of people trade with bitcoins
    that's why you get a bonus 25% discount with em

    i still prefer sending cash by mail, i get 15% off and it's slower but easy as 1-2-3


    hope ya sort it

    For me, coin base worked the first time... and then just failed - refused my card payment FFS!

    I'm in the US. So if I can't get this sorted, I will have to rethink what to do. I may not buy anything from Seedsman is the way I'm leaning.

    Meanwhile I'm going to crawl back under my bridge until tomorrow. Thanks for sharing. I'll try again tomorrow to be witty and entertaining.

    Understandable! I have had issues with their payment system too. Even on this occasion the freebie option flipped back to Fems even though I had clicked the CBD Bundle. Anyway, they're free so let it go.

    Hope you get your bitcoins okay and you can make use of this offer!

    can't blame any seedbank for a 10 day verification period on payment, banks probably slowing things up as per normal the world over

    id also bet if u place the order via msg they'll hold ur order for 10 days until ur bitcoins are ready

    I can indeed blame when they are recommending and giving bonus discounts for a certain payment method, but not disclosing the amount of time it will take. After dealing with coinbase, this isn't an exception, but the rule.

    Honestly free seeds aren't enough for the stress this is generating. I pay my way and haven't been the poor person I grew up as in a very long time.

    As I said, I'll see how tomorrow goes. If I'm successful, I will take the product that is still available. If not, I'll take it as a lesson learned and move on with my life. I'm sure that both Coinbase and Seedsman will continue to thrive, as will I.

    Coinbase can be hard work! I have even heard a few stories of people having their account closed and coins kept as they thought they were using it to buy cannabis products (were just buying seeds). I will only use Coinbase to buy and then transfer it all to my BitPay and make any purchases using that platform.

    Sorry to relight an old thread but I'm keen on that offer from Seedsman but I just checked the reviews for Coinbase and I they have 1.5 out of 10 on trusted reviews. Whats worse is that Trusted reviews is actually manipulable by the company being reviewed so this is seems double bad.

    There is talk of linking bank accounts and uploading ID, none of while I feel overly comfortable with on a 1.5/10 site lol Anyone got any tips/advice/recommendations here - much appreciated!
