How to transfer funds between your Coinbase Pro and Coinbase accounts

Coinbase Pro is the natural next step for many experienced traders using the standard version. Here’s how to transfer your funds. Although your Coinbase and Coinbase Pro accounts are linked, they have their own separate wallets. Transfers from Coinbase to Coinbase Pro are free. 

Since its launch in 2012, the decentralized exchange Coinbase has grown to be one of the most popular in the world and the most popular in the US. But there isn’t just one way through which you can use Coinbase. Alongside its standard version, the exchange offers users the ability to open a professional account that comes with extra features. This is known as Coinbase Pro.

But can Coinbase Pro be beneficial for you, and how can you switch to it from your standard account? Deposits to Coinbase are available on the Pro mobile app by going to the Portfolios page and tapping Deposit in the top right-hand corner.

To transfer funds from your Coinbase wallet to your Pro wallet, follow these steps: 

  1. Go to the Coinbase Pro trading page.
  2. Select Deposit under Wallet Balance (a pop up window will appear).
  3. Select the currency type (i.e. BTC, ETC) that you’d like to add cash to Pro from Coinbase.
  4. Select Coinbase Account.
  5. Enter the amount you would like to add cash to Pro from Coinbase. Please note that you will only be able to add funds that are “Available to deposit” .
  6. Select Deposit at the bottom of the window.


To transfer funds from your Pro wallet to your Coinbase wallet, follow these steps: 

  1. Go to the Coinbase Pro trading page.
  2. Select Withdraw under Wallet Balance (a pop up window will appear).
  3. Select the currency type (i.e. BTC, ETC) that you’d like to cash out from Pro to Coinbase 
  4. Select Coinbase Account.
  5. Enter the amount you would like to cash out from Pro to Coinbase.
  6. Select Withdraw at the bottom of the window.

What Is Coinbase Pro?

The first thing you’ll notice when using a Coinbase Pro account is how its layout differs from a standard account. Below, you can see a comparison between the trading pages of both the standard and pro versions of Coinbase’s exchange.

In view, the Coinbase Pro trading page appears to be far more complicated than that of the standard account. In fact, even the “Advanced Trading” option on a standard Coinbase account is less complex than that you’d encounter using a Pro account. This is because Coinbase Pro is designed for professional traders, rather than those who trade casually or rarely do anything with their crypto holdings.

Most beginner or casual crypto traders only need a few basic exchange features, such as the ability to buy, sell, trade, convert, and stake their funds. Many crypto owners never wander beyond these core features, which is why a standard Coinbase account keeps it simple and sticks to the options that such users are more likely to both understand and use.

But there are thousands of individuals in the crypto industry that want to take their crypto holdings a step further. These experienced users are likely to use more advanced features to expand their portfolios, and such features are offered on a Coinbase Pro account.

How Are Coinbase and Coinbase Pro Similar?

One thing you can be assured of whether you’re using Coinbase or Coinbase Pro is that you’ll be able to buy, sell, or trade the same number of cryptocurrencies. Both account types offer over 120 different cryptocurrencies, from market leaders like Bitcoin and Ethereum (which is different from Ethereum Classic) to lesser-known tokens like SUKU and Kryll.

Coinbase and Coinbase Pro also offer many similar coin metrics, aside from some additional, more complex analytics that can only be accessed with a Pro account.

For the most part, Coinbase and Coinbase Pro also offer the same security features, including two-factor authentication, insurance for USD wallets up to $250,000, and cold storage of funds. The only feature only offered by Coinbase Pro, as mentioned above, is the wallet address whitelisting option.

So, if you’re not looking to trade crypto professionally on a very regular basis, you probably don’t need a Coinbase Pro account. The majority of the features offered by Coinbase as a whole can be accessed using a standard account, and you may find yourself diving in at the deep end if you use a Pro account if you’re not thoroughly experienced in crypto trading.

Why is your Coinbase funds on hold? 

If you’re seeing Funds on Hold, it means that these funds are subject to a Coinbase cashout hold and cannot be transferred to Coinbase Pro yet. Although you can use these funds to buy or sell on Coinbase.com (not on Coinbase Pro), transfers or cashouts are restricted until the hold period is done.
