If you've been using Coinbase for a while, you may come across a situation where you need to verify a past purchase. Luckily, Coinbase makes it easy to view your purchase history. You can visit the Coinbase website or use the mobile app to find this valuable information. Either way, finding your Coinbase transaction history will only take a few seconds.

However, if you want to take the guesswork out of finding your purchase history, you've come to the right place. In this article, we'll walk through the process of finding your Coinbase purchase history on different devices. Additionally, you will learn how to export your Coinbase transaction history to your device.



How to View Purchase History in Coinbase on an iPhone

Coinbase is an exchange platform used to buy, trade, and store various types of cryptocurrencies. While you can go to the Coinbase website to view your purchase history, you can also do so on the mobile app. However, there is a catch.

Whether you are using your computer or mobile device, you will only be able to view purchase history for a specific cryptocurrency or only your recent transactions. The only way to view your entire purchase history is to download the report to your device.

If you were to navigate to the “Wallet” tab of the Coinbase mobile app, you would be able to see your current balance, which is made up of all the assets you currently own. Basically, here you can see the overview of your total account value. However, your purchase history is not displayed in this section.

To view the purchase history of a specific cryptocurrency on the Coinbase mobile app, here is what you need to do:



  1. Open the Coinbase app on your iPhone.
  2. Log in to your Coinbase account if you haven't already.
  3. Under “Watchlist” on your dashboard, find the cryptocurrency you want to view. For example, choose the "Bitcoin" tab.
  4. Proceed to “BTC Wallet” on the next page.
  5. Scroll down to see the full transaction history for this cryptocurrency.

If you are interested in a particular Coinbase purchase, tap on the tab, which will take you to the details page for that purchase. Here you will be able to see the total amount you paid, price per piece, confirmations, fees, purchase date, status, etc.

As mentioned earlier, this method only allows you to view transaction history for a specific cryptocurrency. If you want to view your entire purchase history, you'll need to download it to your device. If you wonder how this is done, it will be explained later in the article.

How to View Purchase History in Coinbase on Android Device

Like iPhones, you can only use the Coinbase mobile app to view purchase history for a specific cryptocurrency, but not the full transaction history on Android devices. Follow the steps below to view the history of a particular cryptocurrency purchase:

That's all we can say about it. Unfortunately, you cannot view your purchase history on the Coinbase mobile app. However, there is a way to download your entire purchase history. Keep reading as we will cover it later in the article.


  1. Open the Coinbase mobile app on your Android device.
  2. Sign into your account.
  3. Tap the cryptocurrency tab under “Watchlist”.
  4. On the next page, go to the “Crypto Wallet” tab.
  5. Scroll down to view the purchase history of this cryptocurrency.

How to View Purchase History in Coinbase on PC

If you want to view your purchase history on your PC, the Coinbase dashboard is different. To be more specific, you will only be able to see your recent transactions. If you only want to see recently completed transactions, here's how:


  1. Go to the Coinbase website.
  2. Sign into your account.
  3. Click on the “Accounts” tab in the top menu.
  4. Select the account for a specific cryptocurrency from the left sidebar.

All recent transactions will be displayed on the right side of the screen. If you use Coinbase Pro, you can find your account history this way:

  1. Go to Coinbase on your browser.
  2. Sign into your account.
  3. Click on the "My Orders" tab in the upper right corner of your screen.
  4. Choose between "Open" and "Filled" orders.

You can also view your deposit and withdrawal history if you have Coinbase Pro. These reports can be found in the "Portfolio" tab in the upper right corner of your screen. Once you are there, you can choose between “Deposits”, “Withdrawals” and “Balances”.


How to view your full transaction history

As stated earlier, the only way to fully view your transaction history on Coinbase is to download the entire report to your device.

Note that your Coinbase transaction history must be downloaded to a computer since you will be using a web browser. Technically speaking, you can also download your purchase history to your phone, as long as you're using a web browser and not the Coinbase mobile app. Here's what you need to do to export your transaction history to Coinbase:

  1. Go to the Coinbase website.
  2. Log in to your Coinbase account.
  3. Click on your profile picture in the upper right corner of the browser.
  4. Go to "Reports" in the drop-down menu. This will take you to the “Transaction History” page.
  5. Next to "Transaction History (all times)", click on the "Generate Report" button in the upper right corner.
  6. Choose between "CSV report" and "PDF report".
  7. Select the "Generate Report" button again.
  8. Choose "Download".

It will take a few seconds to generate and download the transaction history to your device. Before generating your report, you can also choose what type of report it will be. You will be able to filter the information in the “All time”, “All assets” and “All transactions” boxes, which are set this way by default.


The “All the time” box allows you to choose whether you want a transaction history report for the last 30 days, the entire year, or your entire purchase history. In the “All assets” field, you will be able to choose between different types of cryptocurrencies. Finally, in the “All transactions” area, you can select “Buy”, “Sell”, “Convert” and more.

If you want to download your Coinbase transaction history to your phone, the steps are slightly different:

  1. Visit the Coinbase website on a web browser.
  2. Log in to your Coinbase account.
  3. Tap the three lines in the upper right corner of your screen.
  4. Find the "Reports" tab under "Settings".
  5. In the "Transaction History" section, press the "Generate Report" button.
  6. On the “Download Report” page, tap the “Generate Report” button in the lower right corner.
  7. Choose between "CSV report" and "PDF report".
  8. Press the "Download" button.

Now that you have successfully downloaded your purchase history, you can open it at any time.
