Which currencies do you offer accounts in?

All eToro trading accounts are in USD, therefore when depositing with a different currency, the deposited amount will be converted at the current market rate. Please note that this is subject to a conversion fee. Our fees can be found here.

Can I deposit from a Business Account?

Please be advised that using any corporate method of payment to deposit into a personal eToro trading account is against our terms and conditions; we can however offer you the option to open a corporate trading account.

Depending on whether your business is a sole proprietorship, a partnership or corporation, certain documentation will be requested in order to set up the Business trading account.
If your PayPal account is not linked to a real business and you wish to continue to use this for depositing, please downgrade your account to a premium or personal account through PayPal.

Can I make a 3rd Party Payment/Deposit?

A 3rd party payment is a deposit made from a payment method that is not in the same name as the owner of the eToro account. As stated in our Terms & Conditions the owner of the trading account should be the owner of the funds. Therefore you are unable to make a deposit using someone else’s payment method.

However, there are a few exceptions:

If you wish to use a method of payment belonging to your spouse, we can set up a Joint Account for you. This means that both parties will be allowed access the account to trade and deposit/withdraw funds. You will be asked to provide identification documents and a copy of your marriage certificate as well as completing our joint account form.

Alternatively if you are using a family member’s method of payment and you are able to prove your relationship with a birth certificate, affidavit or similar document then we can set up Power of Attorney on the trading account (POA). If you cannot prove your family relation or have no relation to the 3rd party payment holder we cannot offer the POA option. Setting up a POA means you can only deposit and withdraw using payment methods in the name of the POA. Along with the relationship proof, other identification documents will be requested as well as completing our POA account form.
