Coinbase and PayPal join hands to offer crypto transactions in Europe

By Charles Thuo - min read
  • European users will now be able to purchase cryptocurrencies on Coinbase using PayPal.
  • So far Coinbase users from the US, Canada, UK and Europe can use PayPal to purchase crypto.
  • Coinbase recently got the green light from the National Futures Association to provide cryptocurrency futures to qualified US clients.

The world’s largest online payment company, PayPal, has teamed with Coinbase, a prominent cryptocurrency exchange. This collaboration seeks to make the procedure of purchasing cryptocurrencies for crypto aficionados in Germany and the UK as simple as possible.

According to Coinbase, purchasing cryptocurrencies should be as simple as making any other purchase. However, conventional banking techniques, such as wire transfers, can cause the process to lag. This partnership promises a smoother transactional experience for clients thanks to PayPal’s extensive knowledge and technology investments ensuring safety and transparency.

Purchasing crypto using PayPal on Coinbase

Coinbase is now accessible to those in Germany and the UK that have a PayPal account. The increased security is one of this integration’s most notable benefits. Users of Coinbase no longer have to trust the cryptocurrency exchange with their financial information because they can now rely on PayPal’s advanced security system.

Users who are making a purchase on Coinbase first choose their favourite cryptocurrency, then the payment method, and finally “Add a payment method.” When customers click this, they are redirected to PayPal where they can create an account, choose or add their bank account or debit card, and set up for future purchases. The combined best features of both platforms result in a smooth procedure.

Beyond simple usability, Coinbase offers modern security features including encryption and diligent fraud monitoring.

Coinbase will extend this feature to more European nations over the coming months. Currently, PayPal users in countries including the US, UK, Canada, and the EU can now deposit cash directly into their accounts.

The news adds to Coinbase’s August achievements that saw the crypto exchange get permission from the National Futures Association to provide cryptocurrency futures to qualified US clients.
