They offer a way to buy and sell Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, a wallet to store cryptocurrencies, and a service called Coinbase Pro which is a cryptocurrency exchange allowing for cryptocurrency trading.
You can earn 50% of their fees for new customers. This is a pretty high commission rate. However, I don’t like that you can just earn commissions for the first 3 months of your referrals Coinbase activities.
This makes it a less interesting affiliate programs for those looking for long term recurring affiliate programs that can snowball your income over time.
Anyways, it is a pretty high commission rate and I do like that Coinbase has an affiliate program. Considering the high status of the brand many affiliates will probably want to promote them.
