In this tutorial, we are going to explain how to transfer funds to your Coinbase Pro account and how to set up your hopper.

Coinbase Pro is a great exchange for converting your fiat currencies to digital assets like Bitcoin, Ethereum and Litecoin. While it doesn't have a wide range of currencies, it is known to be a very solid exchange.

 
Go to Coinbase Pro

Naturally, the first step is to create an account.

So, let’s do that. Click create an account in the right top corner.

Fill in the required fields.

Kind in mind to sign up with a reliable password, as this account will store your funds.  

Next, you'll receive an email with an activation link. Follow the link to activate the account. 

Coinbase Pro is very strict with their verification rules. You'll need to verify yourself with your driver's license and passport, in their effort to prevent money laundering.

The Next Step

We'll have to create an API key for your Hopper. With this key, your Hopper can trade on your behalf.

In the top right corner, is the settings icon. Mouse over it and click "API" from the drop-down menu.

API Key Settings

Copy the permissions in the shown image for the highest level of security!

- We do not want the permission to transfer funds! We only want to be able to view, trade and manage.
- Choose a paraphrase.
- Click "Create API Key".
The public and private key are shown at the bottom of the page.
We'll have to copy these keys into the configuration of your Hopper.

Now you've created your keys, it's time to configure your Hopper. Go to your Hopper's dashboard and click the Config.

Unable to see your exchange balance?

 There are several things that prevents your hopper from synchronizing the funds of your exchange. In most cases, the browser that you use has ‘’auto-fill’’ enabled. This means that the browser fills in certain text fields themselves. There are three things you can do:

  • Disable autofill,
  • Use incognito mode of your browser
  • Use a browser that you don’t use often.

Another thing that could prevent your hopper from synchronizing are password managers, disable this for Cryptohopper.

 

That's it! Check our other tutorials/Academy and the community forum where users share their Hopper settings.
