The procedure has changed, and after the transfer Coinbase will block the funds received for 5 days. Users cannot transfer funds anywhere, even to their Coinbase Pro account.
"Your only choice is to convert directly to ETH or BTC from Coinbase and pay commissions, which are about 4%" – added TNGSystems.

On June 3, users accused Coinbase of secretly changing the conditions of a bank transfer. Coinbase will make you pay 4% commission, because you cannot even return to your bank account. Your money will remain in limbo for 5 days, and the only way to get out of this situation early is to pay 4% of the commission.
Recall that on May 21, Coinbase Commerce announced that any business using the company's services can now start accepting USD Coin, a stable coin, in exchange for goods and services.
