Stake Pricing

Consistent. Transparent. Simple.

Three is the number. That’s your brokerage fee for all Stake trades up to $30,000.

U.S. Shares


Brokerage for all trades up to US$30,000

Or 0.01% for trades above US$30,000

Invest with clarity

Whether you’re trading stocks, ETFs or OTC securities, the same brokerage fee applies – and nothing else. You’ll know exactly what you’ll pay, every time, whatever the market.

No FX fees per trade

To invest on Stake Wall St, you'll need U.S. dollars in your account. Our FX fee of 1% applies when you convert NZD into USD and vice versa – not every time you trade.

Brokerage fees cover the costs/commissions associated with executing a trade on behalf of investors – a process that can include a number of entities, systems and partners besides the broker. As a standard practice across share markets, brokerage fees are often expressed as a percentage of the value of a trade, as a flat fee, or a combination of the two.

Our only fee per trade is our brokerage fee: $3 brokerage for trades up to $30,000, or 0.01% on trades above $30,000. There's no FX fee per trade, only for Stake Wall St deposits and withdrawals.

On Stake Wall St, U.S. shares transferred from another broker via ACATS (Automated Customer Account Transfer Service) also won't incur any fees from Stake. U.S. shares transferred in via DTC (Depository Trust Company) or DRS (Direct Registration System) will be charged US$35–55 per position, but this fee is 100% rebated by Stake for transfers over a minimum value. See details and exact charges here. Keep in mind your existing broker may charge fees to transfer shares out.

We do not charge any inactivity fees, holding fees or account management fees on your Stake account.

Here at Stake, transparency is key so we will always be completely open and clear on how the company makes money. Currently, we make money in these ways:

  • FX Fees
  • Brokerage fees on U.S. shares
  • Stake Black membership fees
  • Net Interest on cash
