Oh my gosh, when I first opened a coinbase account to do very small trading, it was a little overwhelming when you move to coinbase pro. But there are alot of youtube videos that can help and I need to use my account more. I haven't traded anything in a long time.If using Coinbase to deposit funds from your bank, use Coinbase Pro (same login details as Coinbase)
Coinbase pro will scare the life out of you at first glance, but deposit your funds there, then move them back to the regular Coinbase account. There are no fees to transfer between the two variants.
The rates are much better. Note: Credit/Debit cards cost you a lot more than a wire transfer from your bank.
I am in the EU, and send funds (SEPA Transfer) from my bank account (Not my card) to Coinbase pro and the funds are usually there within a couple of days max.
I'm now trying to get my head around using Coinbase Pro for all transactions as all of the rates are so much better.
Hope this helps, and for what it's worth I also spent months trying to figure out Bitcoin and Crypto, then one day the penny just dropped!!
