I bought some bitcoins on 18th Dec from
Coinbase by connecting my bank account. The status is still pending and I don’t see any money debit from my account.
What’s up with that ?

      It's the bank not cb. Transfer money to cb and trading is instant.

      Nah ACH transfers don't take THAT long. Coinbase makes it take longer than it needs. Could be them or even their back end bank provider, most likely they hold for a few days so earn interest on. That's also how Robinhood makes money.

    Don't trust being that price locked. They may send you an email saying your bank cancelled the transactions and suddenly you have nothing. This happened to me even though I linked my bank account. Couple days later I deposited to Gdax and money transfered without an issue. It took full 5 business days though. No changes on my settings or accounts. Actually I'm glad they cancelled my direct transactions you don't want to wait for 8 days to have your BTC to be available in your account.

    They usually give you the arrival date if you log into web UI.

    It’s standard across the board, it depends on your bank more than the marketplace you choose to use. Transactions from your USD wallet in coinbase are instant

      Is it also instant to put money in your USD wallet?

    Coinbase must have (had) some sort of data persistence meltdown, someone from their support team is on reddit fixing people's pending transactions. I can't help but to think they had some sort of data loss and need to manually patch things up. It's too obvious that all these transactions pending for days and weeks get settled in minutes after human interaction.

    Coinbase can take up to 11 days to clear. Your buy price remains the same as the moment job bought it but it’s not available for until it’s fully cleared.
