So Coinbase tells me (via webpage) my bank will not allow such to happen with my Visa debt card to open an account. But, not in so many words. A few hours later, the auto-anti-theft phone call comes from my bank asking me to verify suspicious activity with my card to the tune of $1.00 U$D X two withdrawal attempts. So I go the bank to verify and they assure me the bank will not allow such to happen with my Visa debt card to open an account in London. Guess it's time to turn over my bank account over to Coinbase instead. Got to love the regulations. I asked the bank head teller/asst. manager if what I wanted to do with my checking account would work? She gave me the "good luck with that" look.
Once I get pic of the back of my drivers license digitized and sent to Coinbase (The front seemed to work OK but I have to wait 'til I get home from work to use the wife's tablet to make the pic of the back) I'll see if the bank account attempt will work. I imagine the next thing I'll have to verify is the number of pimples I have on my left butt cheek.
Home from work and when I use my checking account to set things up, Coinbase webpage tells me they already have that account on file. So I click on buy/sell and they want me to verify the amounts they already deposited into my account. If I knew that when I was at the bank this afternoon, I would have gotten the answer then. I don't do online/phone app banking, so its a phone call or in person which is my preferred method.
Interesting my bank won't let me set up an account with Coinbase using their Visa but, Coinbase can deposit into my checking account associated with my bank's Visa. Thereby starting the process of establishing an account with them before I agreed to give them access. Perhaps I should have read the fine print.
