Reports claim Coinbase is cancelling their Visa Shift Card

According to community members that use Coinbase, they have received an email stating that Coinbase will be cancelling the Visa card service. 

While no major announcement has been made by Coinbase, and not a lot of people appear to know about the apparent announcement, several users who make use of the Shift Visa card have stated that they have received an email stating"We, unfortunately, will be retiring the program in April of this year. All Shift Cards will be officially deactivated on April 11, 2019..."

The news comes as a huge surprise to users as it appears the news has only been shared via an email. Also the news is a huge setback for users and crypto as a whole.

The community reacted with disapproval towards the announcement, which will mean everyone who paid the $20 fee for the card to use it will now need to find an alternative solution within the next two months.

Will Coinbase refund the money for closing the Visa card service of Shift Cards users? Coinbase is greedy to take care of their customers and will do it hardly

Coinbase is most likely unprofitable to maintain Shift Cards. But in any case this exchange will never pay compensation, it's so greedy for it

Do you think Coinbase could pay а compensation for Visa Shift cards holders? This is a very funny joke haha
21 Feb, 2019 - 11:07
coinbase really want to get more fees ASAP
17 Feb, 2019 - 06:51
very nice news from coinbase) i fell how 'happy' the users )
17 Feb, 2019 - 19:12
This is a sudden update. Visa Shift card holders will be at a loss. Coinbase can make unpleasant surprises
17 Feb, 2019 - 19:50
Users are very happy that finally this hell is over. I don’t understand why Coinbase has been torturing users for so long with terrible withdrawal delays?
20 Feb, 2019 - 09:19
today coinbase blocks visa cards and tomorrow it will block our accounts in general
17 Feb, 2019 - 21:09
I won't be surprised. There are such cases already
18 Feb, 2019 - 17:24
Probably we should think, is everything okay with finances at Coinbase
17 Feb, 2019 - 22:59
yes of course we should think that Coinbase is 'successful' lol. but in fact a more unreliable and not insecure exchange then this one you will not find
19 Feb, 2019 - 09:31
Yes, I am also interested in this question, what should do those who have previously used a visa card do? I would like to have more explanations from coinbase
18 Feb, 2019 - 21:00
sorry, coinbase doesn't answer......
I opened a ticket 3 days ago but support is silent :\
19 Feb, 2019 - 09:16
cruel realities of coinbase service)))
18 Feb, 2019 - 22:03
i'd say 'very huge surprise' for coinbase users ) after that news i'd leave the exchange forever
18 Feb, 2019 - 23:13
This is the most correct decision you could make. run away from here and away until you lost all your money thanks to Coinbase fraud
23 Feb, 2019 - 09:28
what will be the next? coinbase will cancel the trading function for the users or maybe withdrawing ?
18 Feb, 2019 - 23:58
it cancelled everything already. coinbase doesn't want us to withdraw our OWN funds!
20 Feb, 2019 - 09:39
Visa Shift card users have had terrible withdrawal delays and frequent technical problems. I don’t understand why Coinbase instead of solving these problems just closes support? Another proof that Coinbase doesn't care about its customers.
19 Feb, 2019 - 02:29
once again I am convinced of the complete indifference of Coinbase to its customers. he doesn't care about their well-being at all. I hate this fucking CB.
19 Feb, 2019 - 08:11
Visa Shift Card and Coinbase = was a terrible issue with a withdrawal. It couldn't exist more
19 Feb, 2019 - 20:01
Someone surprised? With such withdrawal delays, this should have happened. I am shocked that Coinbase did not fix the problems, but simply decided to stop supporting Visa Shift Cards. It's stupid
19 Feb, 2019 - 21:48
in this case coinbase can become an unsuccessful exchange.. hope it will happens ))
19 Feb, 2019 - 22:18
after than is logical for coinbase is to cancel the withdrawing ))))
19 Feb, 2019 - 23:16
and again the poor customers of the evil Coinbase are losing their money and convenience which in fact was not.
20 Feb, 2019 - 06:36
unfortunately coinbase users and card holders will not recover all the money regarding this matter
20 Feb, 2019 - 20:58
Visa Shift card users will not be able to return the time that was spent on waiting for withdrawals! Coinbase did not solve this issue and that is why stops a support
20 Feb, 2019 - 21:24
I wonder why Coinbase did not solve the problem with the withdrawal using Visa Shift Cards
21 Feb, 2019 - 10:31
considering the fact that coinbase usually blocks the users accounts and steals their i assume that visa holders will not get back any cent.
21 Feb, 2019 - 23:55
Visa Shift users suffered from extremely long withdrawals. Coinbase did not solve this problem and closed the cards support. Oh my god i hate such moves of coinbase
22 Feb, 2019 - 23:21
Visa Shift cards have a terrible long withdrawal. Worst support by Coinbase, it did not solve its issues and just end supporting. I've done
