If you need buy, sell and spot prices you can use this..
-- spot price
get url https://api.coinbase.com/v2/prices/spot?currency=USD
-- buy price
get url https://api.coinbase.com/v2/prices/buy?currency=USD
-- sell price
get url https://api.coinbase.com/v2/prices/sell?currency=USD

Data is returned as json
