#Edit: Advanced Trading (with low fees) on Coinbase is in beta and not available currently for the Coinbase mobile app. If you’re using the mobile app to buy/sell all of this still applies. Please stop responding about lower fees for the mobile app on coinbase this isn’t true. I left op a comment and asked him to update his post.
Since people aren’t checking it for themselves
Cb __app__ has a significantly higher spread fee making you buy btc $600 above current price ~~+2%~~ +a higher fee for all purchases $200 or less.
Buying .00108424 btc
on CB $50
On CB Pro $47.53
A side effect from the Coinbase site going down is the Ad went viral and it’s attracting a lot of new attention to the company.
Coinbase is currently #2 of all free apps on the apple App Store. CB Pro isn’t even in the top 200 and is #97 of all Finance apps.
Why should you switch? __Despite the name Pro__ there are no additional costs or knowledge requirements to use CB Pro. In addition to the extra features like order book info CB Pro fees are significantly lower.
If you prefer the look of the Coinbase app, that’s ok. Buy on CB Pro and transfer your crypto for FREE to the Coinbase platform. When the time comes you can switch your crypto back to CB Pro for free to sell cheaper as well.
TLDR: If you didn’t know use CB Pro not CB to buy/sell crypto.
