Uphold is not a free platform. We charge EEA customers a spread for buying and selling crypto.
In the U.S., U.K., and Europe, our spread is typically 1.5% on BTC and ETH.
Our spread is typically 0.2% between major national currencies such as EUR, USD, and GBP.
Uphold is not a free platform. We charge a spread every time you trade.
Our pricing model is all-inclusive. The price you see before you trade is the price you pay when you trade. Unlike many platforms, our prices are locked in pre-trade*. Unlike some competitors, we don’t add hidden fees between Preview and Transact.
Please check the rate you’re getting on the Preview page. Only confirm your transaction if you’re happy with the rate and accept the trade.
Fees are agreed on a volume basis. Please discuss with our Business Development Team.

FREE between Uphold customers. All customer-to-customer transfers are completely FREE of all fees, costs or limitations regardless of the amounts transferred, currency or frequency.
We charge an exchange fee when a customer buy/converts between different currencies. This is based upon a percentage of the transaction value (see the full list of fees below). You may also notice a slight difference between the buy and sell price quote for the same currency pair at Uphold. This is because we include in the quote a Price Protection Fee.
This small difference (usually less than 0.75% above or below the market rate) allows us to give you an instant and guaranteed quote no matter the market conditions or other factors that may affect our ability to settle your trade.
