Free Trading in May

Have you read the latest news?

It seems that there are some who aren't pleased with the idea that you, the end user, should reap the rewards of low costs and have the savings passed on to you.

You see, most brokers do the opposite: they charge huge brokerage fees and reap the rewards for themselves. It's an amazement that despite the fact that we charge so little on the Dream Plan (5 free trades each month, Rs. 20 per order traded afterward), brokers continue to charge Rs. 50-100 per lot on options and upwards to 5 paisa brokerage on equities!

On an average, we charge 10% per order compared to the "popular" brokers in India. 

And that's why we will continue pushing the pedal and never slow down. In May, we are taking things to a whole new level...

Two is better than One: Double Promo!

We have run free trading promotions on the Dream Plan in the past. We have also run the famous Switch-over Plan (and continue to do so), whereby you get up to Rs. 2000 in brokerage credit by switching over from another broker.

And so we decided to take our two best performing promotions of the past, combine them, and provide them to you during the remainder of May.

The safer way to trade in options


Here's how it works!

  1. If you're a new customer on the Dream Plan, all Dream Plan trades are free for the month of May! If you're an existing customer, this is a great way to refer your friends to Upstox and start earning a massive, passive income through our referral program!
  2. If you switch-over from another broker to Upstox by providing a contract note, you get Rs. 2000 credited to your account at the end of the month.

We've run countless promotions, but we have never combined two of them into one! Now is your chance.

For new customers: Send us an email at sales@upstox.com or call us at 022-6130-9999
For existing customers Send us an email at support@upstox.com or call us at 022-6130-9999

After all, two is better than one.

P.S. Get ready for an incredible teaser site in a month that will showcase what we have been quietly working on for the past year and a half 😉

  1. Way to go Upstox!!

    I should say its very attractive offer.
    At the same time very aggressive and predatory marketing from Upstox, actively engaging clients and online partners to snatch from competitors. Its raining switchover and cashback offers, good for end users

    One question though, Is the switchover bonus is only for a Dream plan, or it applies to Pro and Ultimate plan also?

    1. Dear Pavana,

      Sorry for the delayed response!

      The Switchover applies to all plans! So if you’re trading with another broker and finding yourself paying unnecessary fees, switch over to Upstox and get Rs. 2000 in trading brokerage- no questions asked 🙂

      Best Regards,

    1. Hi p k,

      Do contact us, we’d love to hear from you!


      1. Request
        Ability to place buy and sl in same window [Not to confuse with bracket order]
        Or else something like Ninja Trader where you easily move entries on chart

  2. Pls help me understand the Dream plan brokerage structure. I understand that charges are Rs 20 per trade. Is Rs 20 per unit purchased or for each buy and sell. Suppose I buy 100 shares and the by the time the trade gets executed the shares are split into 40 and 60, then will I be charged Rs 20 and 20?
    Also will I be charges a monthly fees or an Annual Installment fees?

    1. Hi Amera,

      For each order placed, it will be the minimum of 1 paisa brokerage of Rs. 20. In the example you provided, you will only be charged Rs. 20 since it was one order split into two trades.

      There are no monthly fees for the Dream Plan and no AMC’s.

      Warm Regards,

  3. other discount brokers are charging rs 20 or .01% whichever is less.I dont find this in your scheme. can you clarify ?

    1. Hi Amera,

      We provide 5 free trades each month on the Dream Plan. Afterward, you use up your 5 trades, you will always be charged the minimum of 1 paisa brokerage or Rs. 20, whichever is lower.

      I hope that helped!
