There are two ways you can fetch your Coinbase transactions into ZenLedger- OAuth and API import. In this article, we will be looking at the traditional API generation option.

  1. Log in to your Coinbase and go to the following link (

  2. Click on '+ New API Key' on the right-hand side.

    You will get a 2FA code into your linked cell phone number, enter that.

  3. Under accounts, check all the boxes you would like to import transactions from (we recommend checking them all).

  4. Now on the same pop-up screen scroll a bit, to ‘Permissions’ and tick all checkboxes with ‘read’ permission.

  5. Now scroll again and click on the “Create” button. Copy the generated API Key and API secret and head back to your ZenLedger dashboard.

  6. Enter those respective credentials and click “Import Transactions".
