Why does Kraken charge deposit fees?
The payments partners that we work with charge us fees for deposits in fiat currencies we support, and those are the fees listed above.
Are there any other fees?
Your bank may charge you fees for sending the deposit to our payments partners.
Intermediary or correspondent banks (banks between your bank and our bank that processes the transaction in transit) may also charge fees or convert the transaction to a different currency en route (if sending Euros from outside of Europe, for example). These fees are on the account of the sender and the responsibility of the sending bank.
Minimum for Canadian Dollar Deposits:
The actual minimum is 100 CAD, but we recommend sending a minimum amount of 125 CAD in case any wire fees are applied to the deposit by intermediary banks. Any bank that handles CAD funds can apply fees at their discretion. Banking/wire fees of approximately $10 may apply.
