How to withdraw USD via normal domestic wire transfers

To withdraw USD from within the US (domestic):

  1. Check that your account fulfills the requirements.
  2. Navigate to the Funding > Withdraw > US Dollars (USD) page.
  3. Select the US domestic wire transfer option.
  4. Enter in the details of the checking account you wish to withdraw to.
  5. Once the account is added, follow the instructions closely to initiate a withdrawal.


To help your withdrawal go smoothly, check the following:

  • Account ownership: Make sure the name on the bank account matches the name on your Kraken account.
  • Compatible account: Make sure that you are entering a FedWire account and FedWire routing numbers and not an ACH account and ACH routing numbers.
  • Compatible bank: Make sure you are not withdrawing to a third-party payments processor.
  • Withdrawal limits: Make sure the withdrawal will not result in you exceeding your USD daily or monthly withdrawal limits.
  • Duplicate withdrawal amounts: Make sure you don't send multiple withdrawals with the same exact amount within 3 business days of each other. This may result in delays as our system will flag them as possible duplicates. Please use slightly different amounts for each withdrawal.
