In the first two stages, customers can only transfer XLM tokens to Coinbase Pro accounts and post limit order which would not be matched immediately. In the third stage, the customers can now match orders but cannot submit market orders while the final stage will open all trading options available on the platform to XLM traders.

From other listings, the support could be announced on the retail platforms as soon a few days or a few weeks after Pro support. Also, the XLM trading will immediately be available in all Coinbase jurisdictions with the exception of New York.
