Coinbase python APIError: Failed to send money

0 votes

I am trying to integrate the new Coinbase python library. I want to make send_money work but I keep getting this error

transaction = account.send_money(address, bitcoins)
File "C:\Python27\lib\site-packages\coinbase\model.py", line 360, in send_money
'Failed to send money')
File "C:\Python27\lib\site-packages\coinbase\error.py", line 58, in build_api_error
raise error
APIError: Failed to send money

My python code:

bitcoins = 0.0001
# address = a bitcoin wallet address
client = Client(API_KEY, API_SECRET)
account = client.get_account()
transaction = account.send_money(address, str(bitcoins))

I can check my balance, so account is working. Also, all the permissions are granted in the API settings in Coinbase website. Can someone suggest what to do?

You might want to look at the response of the error to see why the call failed. This can happen for various reasons but the error message should tell you more.

from coinbase.error import CoinbaseError

try:
    transaction = account.send_money(address, bitcoins)
except CoinbaseError as e:
    print e.response.text
