General notes icon

General notes

Our pricing model is all-inclusive. The price you see before your trade is the price you pay when you trade. Unlike many platforms, our prices are locked in pre-trade* and 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.

  • Like most trading venues, we display the current mid-market price on our charts; when you trade, you receive the current bid or ask price depending on whether you’re buying or selling. There is always a small difference between the mid-market and the bid/ask execution prices: it's how order books on exchanges work.
  • We charge 0% deposit fees, 0% withdrawal fees, 0% trading commissions, but we do charge the spreads above in every trade.
  • Network Fees - charged by the network when you withdraw to an external crypto wallet and passed on to the customer - will vary according to network congestion.

Please note:

  • Uphold does not charge UK customers a fee for peer-to-peer transactions on our app. A user can send Bitcoin, for example, to another KYC verified user free of charge. (NB: only certain country destinations are supported.) If a currency conversion is involved - i.e., you send GBP but you would like the beneficiary to receive Bitcoin, you'll only be charged for the currency conversion involved: 0.85% for buying BTC with GBP. A crypto-to-crypto exchange, such as BTC to DOT involves two transactions - sell BTC to GBP (1%) and buy GBP to DOT (0.95%). However, we only charge a net dealer spread of 1.20%.
  • During times of acute market volatility, the dealer spreads we charge may be wider than advertised to compensate for the increased price risk we have to absorb for holding the quoted price open for 18 seconds. During such periods, we will display a warning notice advising you of the higher transaction costs and advising you only to proceed if you are happy to pay the higher dealer spreads involved.

Service Fees: Business accounts

Fees are agreed on a volume basis. Please discuss with our Business Development Team.

* Deposits from bank accounts only available in the UK, Europe & US. The price for UK and Europe bank transfers is not locked in pre-trade. The price of the relevant Cryptoasset may change between the time you submit the order and the time the order is executed. You should be aware that execution is on a best-efforts basis and could result in significant price fluctuations as the Cryptoasset purchase order will be executed at the prevailing market price at the time of execution. As Cryptoassets experience frequent price volatility this poses you a high degree of risk.

You should be aware that the risk of loss in trading or holding cryptoassets can be very high. As with any asset, the value of cryptoassets can go up or down and there can be a substantial risk that you lose all your money buying, selling, holding or investing in cryptoassets. Our cryptoasset services are not within the scope of the UK Financial Ombudsman Service and your cryptoassets are not subject to protection under the UK Financial Services Compensation Scheme. You should carefully consider whether trading or holding cryptoassets is suitable for you in light of your financial condition.

Uphold Europe Limited (FRN: 900577) is registered under the Financial Conduct Authority’s Temporary Registration Regime for cryptoasset firms and complies with the Money Laundering, Terrorist Financing and Transfer for Funds (Information on the Payer) Regulations 2017 as amended. Uphold Europe Limited is also an EMD agent of Optimus Cards UK Limited which is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority to issue e-money (FRN: 902034) pursuant to the Electronic Money Regulations 2011.

The e-money services are regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. E-money is not a deposit or investment account which means that your e-money will not be protected by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme. User funds will be held in a designated safekeeping account with a regulated financial institution. E-money will not earn any interest.
