eToro is all about making investing accessible and easier. With low fees and minimum deposits, combined with our user-friendly platform, stock investing is something everyone can do.
You can also invest in fractional shares. A fractional share is a portion of an equity stock that is less than one full share. Fractional shares allow you to purchase stocks based on the dollar amount you want to invest.

What does “zero commission” actually mean?
Zero commission means that no additional broking / dealing fee has been charged when trading stocks. Most brokers add a dealing charge when you buy or sell stocks through them, generally called a “commission”. We do not charge commissions. However, general fees still apply, such as FX conversion fees on non-USD deposits and withdrawals, withdrawal fees, and (if applicable) inactivity fees.
A market spread also applies, although this is not a “fee” charged by eToro.
Many brokers also charge a quarterly management fee and/or administration fee. eToro never charges any management, administration or ticketing fees. eToro even absorbs Stamp Duty and Financial Transaction Tax for clients where applicable: an additional saving of 0.5% in the UK, 1% in Ireland, 0.3% in France, 0.2% in Spain and 0.1% in Italy.

Your gains go to you, not to your broker
When you invest with a traditional broker, you first pay commission which eats into any potential gains — meaning that you will lose a part of your profits before you have even begun trading. With eToro, you won’t pay any markup on the shares you buy, so that the commission stays in your pocket, instead of going to your broker.
The advantages of buying shares on eToro do not end with unbeatable pricing:
- No limit on trading volume
- Ability to buy fractional shares
- Receive notifications on volatility and market events
- Free access to TipRanks expert stock analysis

eToro’s goal has always been to open the financial markets for everyone in a simple and transparent way. We strongly believe that anyone, anywhere, can and should have access to the financial markets. Making our platform easy to use, and removing entry barriers such as commission on stock investments, serves this purpose. It also attracts more customers to eToro, enabling us to grow our user base, and reducing commission. eToro serves millions of clients in more than 140 countries. The larger our user base gets, the easier it will be to lower our fees further.
Alongside our stock selection, we also offer other financial assets and features, such as leveraged trading and short orders, which incur fees that help finance eToro’s operations and are clearly displayed on the platform. You can read more about the fees which eToro charges on this page.

When you open a non-leveraged BUY (long) position on a stock, you are investing in the underlying asset. The stock is purchased by eToro and recorded in our system under your name.
If you open a stock position on eToro, you are not issued a stock issuance certificate or allocated voting rights. Nonetheless, should the company issue dividends, your balance will be updated in accordance with your holdings.
The eToro trading platform is not an exchange or a market. This means that you can only buy and sell stocks within the eToro trading platform. Currently, eToro does not offer the option to move open positions to another broker via the Automated Customer Account Transfer Service (ACATS) or any other system.
When depositing and withdrawing in non-USD currencies, a conversion fee will be incurred. Diamond members are automatically exempt from FX conversion fees. Platinum and Platinum+ members receive a 50% discount. There is also a low fixed $5 fee for withdrawals and a $10 monthly inactivity fee after 12 months with no trading activity.
Although not a fee that is levied by eToro, each transaction is subject to a market spread upon opening and closing. This is determined by the market and is a characteristic that is consistent across all banks and brokers. FURTHER DETAILS IN RELATION TO OUR FEES MAY BE FOUND [HERE].
