Frequently Asked Questions

Why does Kraken charge withdrawal fees? 

The payments partners that we work with charge us fees for withdrawals in fiat currencies we support.

Are there any other fees?

Intermediary or correspondent banks (banks between our bank and your bank that processes the transaction in transit) may sometimes charge fees or convert the transaction to a different currency en route.
