We put our guide at this link: Coinbase

Be sure to post any questions you may have using Coinbase. Comments are welcome. Coinbase certainly has its share of customer service woes as the crypto industry undergoes rapid expansion. But with the largest number of account holders in the crypto world, you can't escape problems completely.

It seems that Coinbase will need to greatly expand its customer service staffing to keep up with demand. No exchange is perfect though. Bittrex and Gemini have had a few recent glitches and downtimes, and Poloniex has had numerous withdraw issues for various coins over the last 6 months.

Coinbase remains the easiest place for beginners to start. GDAX is a great 2nd step after starting.
