Use "replace by fee" in your wallet and you can set the transaction fee to as low as you want, don't go too low though otherwise no one will bother confirming your transaction.

If there's more transactions going on, then the fees increase (I think). So, it BC is ona run, lots of people buy and sell and network fees increase.

I don't send from Coinbase... It's linked to all my personal data. I use a separate wallet. This is where you'll see a hike in fees (from a seperate anonymous wallet).

Cost me over $10 in fees last night to buy something which was $14, so almost doubled the total price I had to pay

Coinbase wallet. Was pretty strange considering that moments before I had done a $30 order and the fee was like $1.70

was trying to get an order in last night but the minimum fee to send any transaction was £7+ and i couldn't bring myself to pay it!
but then i started thinking what if this becomes the new norm, went to pay it and the fees had gone up to £9, so i had to buy more coin to cover the fees whilst paying fees over and over again to coinbase for buying small amounts to try and cover this network fee, this actually kept happening over the space of about 2 hours, in the end lost about £24 to fees just to order something for £96 and the £10 network fee you see at the bottom there, honestly can't even begin to explain how pissed off i am!

Had a 19p transaction I made today at 10am. Still pending. Can’t knock Coinbase on this one this is sending eth from Jaxx but either way to be out of funds and 12 hours pending now is fucking bollocks

Christ almighty...I wouldn't have minded I knew it was no relevance to the miners because of the low gas fee, but the fact I couldn't even increase the price manually is pretty shit so once paid up had no control..still a way to go until this is viable across the board. Possibly improvements with ETH 2.0 on the speeds but unless you can affect the reward to the miners you're caught really

I did set it at the lowest priority (issues with balance spending) to move it to another wallet....but a WEEK!

Been there mate ultimately crypto will never replace fiat with these issues. Greet investment especially with recent trends on btc and eth but still too jumpy for these quick transactions. I try and keep a fiver or so buffer and always send over a couple of quid on top but still wide open and will happen again. You could easily stick a tener on top of already inflated product prices which is another factor why buyers are getting fed up

This is happening to me and its driving me up the wall! How on earth are you supposed to enjoy the gains of BTC when youe wallet/blockchain wont let you spend all funds?? I usually have $10-15 stuck in my wallet and am only able to send it if i hit lowest lowest priority, then it takes a week to move to my other wallet. Not cool

This happened me with Blockchain. I made sure I had enough in my wallet to pay, but when trying to do the transactions it wouldn’t let me saying I needed more money - despite having enough for the payment + sending fees.

Topped up my balance a few quid, paid the transaction and when I checked my wallet after I had around £5 in the wallet. Really frustrating losing unnecessary money to fees!
