How do you calculate the minimum purchase amount?

Modified on Thu, 14 Sep 2023 at 08:32 PM

For Gemini and Kraken, we fetch the minimum crypto purchase amount dynamically from the exchange and multiply it by the current price. We will recalculate the minimum order amount if you select a different fiat currency to purchase with. The minimum purchase amount might fluctuate based on the price, but usually stays the same in crypto terms (however is subject to change at any time).

For Coinbase we fetch the minimum fiat purchase amount directly from their API (instead of calculating it).

The latest minimum crypto purchase amounts per exchange can be found here:

What happens if the amount I provide when creating a new repeat buy schedule falls below the minimum order amount (due to price fluctuations, etc.)?

Not a problem! You can edit the purchase amount of your repeat buy schedule at any time. You do that by clicking the three vertical dots to the right of the status badge on the schedule details page and then clicking Edit. Simply provide a new purchase amount and click Save and you're done!

If you don't do this before the next automated order, your schedule will simply be automatically paused and the buy will fail with a message about the order amount being too small. You can still edit the schedule purchase amount and resume the schedule after that.
