How do I get through the phone menu to a live person?

Consider using our free service that calls and talks to customer service for you, then sends you a report. Or use our free service that waits on hold and tells you when a human rep is on the line. But if those options don't appeal to you, our team has also documented the phone menu for Coinbase below.

Our AI powered phone can dial, navigate the phone menu, wait on hold, and even talk to customer service for you, for free. You don't even need to learn about the path through the various phone options.

That same, free GetHuman Phone can call and navigate the menus and wait on hold for you, but you can opt to do all the talking. We notify you when a rep is on the line and ready to talk, so no need to worry about changing menu options and weaving your way through the maze.
Of course, we completely understand if you prefer to do all the dialing, waiting, and talking yourself. All of these free tools are optional.

What are the hours and when should I call?

Coinbase operates the call center for this 888-908-7930 phone number 24 hours, 7 days. The short answer is that you should call on a Friday. This observation and the following section are based on analysis of a sample set of 2,233 calls made in the last 90 days using our free, web-based phone (see above).

Automatically call when they open

When you use our free AI-powered phone to call and talk, wait on hold, or navigate for you, it will automatically wait until the Coinbase call center opens before trying to call. It will ask your permission before it places the call, so you can also further delay that scheduled call until you are ready. But that means you can "set it and forget it" ahead of time.
An important note: busy times vs hold times vs best time to call
When we refer to busy or less busy times, we are talking about the volume of calls. The busiest times are when the most people are calling this Coinbase phone number (least busy times have fewer people calling). This high call volume does not necessarily mean that you will have a long hold time when you call. Companies like Coinbase staff their call centers differently based on the time of day and day of the week, so you may experience a shorter wait on hold at the busiest of times. When we refer to the best time to call, we are referring to the optimal combination of lower call volume and shorter wait times.

The least busy time to call

The least busy day to call Coinbase is Sunday. The most busy day to call is Wednesday, which averages 171% more phone calls by comparison. Again, this is based on a sample of 2,233 calls made with our AI-powered, web-based phone in the last 90 days.

The shortest wait on hold

We measured the shortest hold times to be on Wednesday. The longest wait in the queue on average occurs on Tuesday.
But if you use our free call and talk for me or wait on hold for me service, you don't really need to worry about average wait times.

The best time to call Coinbase

In summation, the best day to call Coinbase is Friday.

Calling this Coinbase Customer Number

Christian Allen is the editor / author responsible for this content.
Feb 12, 2024

When calling Coinbase for questions or concerns, existing customers are given a variety of options to reach a representative but new customers are hardly able to do so. As a newcomer to cryptocurrency and digital encryption payments, I called Coinbase for more information on how to get started.

An automated recording greets callers with several choices for accessing assistance including filing a complaint, gaining access to locked accounts or seeking help with a Coinbase card used for spending crypto. The automated message also suggested callers visit the Coinbase website for other questions or additional support. Even though I don’t currently have a Coinbase account or card, I selected the option for accessing card assistance to see where it led. 

Another automated message offered more selections for Coinbase card support ranging from reporting a lost or stolen card to activating new cards. The message also stated I could press 0 at any time to speak with a representative so I chose this option. After being transferred to another department, the automated system notified me that Coinbase agents could only help with card support issues and no other requests. Once again, I was directed to the website for further help or to set up an account. I decided to stay on the line to see how far I could get. 

However, I was prevented from proceeding once the system required my phone and account number. Without that verification, callers can't get very far within the system. However, I decided to enter in my phone number and see what other options may be offered. But was told the information provided didn't match the Coinbase records, therefore I couldn't be connected with a representative. The call returned to the original main menu and I followed the prompts again to reach a rep but my attempt failed. The automated system once again directed me to the website where I could read their list of frequently asked questions so I decided it was time to go online. 

Once there, I noticed the website offered a chat box, which led to their virtual assistant. Unfortunately, I was required to first sign in before any support or help could be given.  This all proved to be a frustrating endeavor, as I was on the phone for at least 15 minutes and unable to access help online without an account. The website offered some explanation on how to set up an account but it would be nice to chat with a rep before making the decision whether to pursue a crypto portfolio with Coinbase.

Christian has been writing about long hold times and customer service call center experiences since 2010. He's been featured in Bloomberg, the Wall Street Journal and the Boston Globe.

Why Customers Call Coinbase

If you have time to do a bit of reading before you call Coinbase, we recommend you read over some of our problem-specific articles.

What Do I Do If My Coinbase Account Is Disabled?

If you receive a "Sorry, account temporarily disabled" error message on Coinbase, your account may have been targeted by a hacker or there is a security issue. To remove the restriction, reset your password and contact Coinbase Support. Provide necessary information for account recovery and be prepared to verify your identity with ID and selfie. Use strong passwords and two-step verification for added security.

There are of course other ways to contact Coinbase customer service besides the phone. Below we list the best ones, by medium.

Online customer service support
As a last, sometimes only, resort- Coinbase customer service can be accessed through their website. This can entail digging through help articles before finding a form and "being allowed" to submit a problem to their team, and rarely leads to a real-time conversation, which is why GetHuman does not recommend this unless it's the only way.
