What fee was I charged?

Unlike other investing platforms, you’ll never be charged:

  • Commissions on any trades
  • Platform usage fees
  • For depositing or withdrawing from your connected bank

We believe your money should work harder for you, that’s why we eliminated fees that many other brokerages charge their customers

Regulatory fees 

Regulatory expenses are mandated fees passed on to the consumer. These occur when users sell a stock or ETF, and often cost only a few pennies. For example, if you sell ten shares of Apple stock at $150 per share, you would pay a total of 4 cents in regulatory expenses — 3 cents in SEC fees and 1 cent in TAF fees. These costs are calculated as follows: 


Fee formulas

  • SEC Fee = total price of transaction * $22.90 / 1,000,000 ¹
  • TAF = "$0.000145 per share for each sale of a covered equity security with a maximum of $7.27 per trade." ²

*Fees are rounded up to the nearest penny 

Please note when trading American Depository Receipts (ADR), fees may apply and are charged to you as the holder of the ADR.
