What is the trading fee when I buy or sell digital currency?

Bitvavo charges trading fees if your order is executed. The amount of the trading fee is based on:

  1. The type of order you execute.
  2. The scale of trading volume you are in.

Order type

The fees of Bitvavo are categorized into:

  • Taker fees; these are applicable when your order is filled immediately with one of the available orders in the order book (this will often be the case with market orders).
  • Maker fees; these are applicable when your order is not filled immediately but add liquidity to the order book (this will often be the case with good till cancel limit orders).
Trading volume scale

There are a number of trading volume scales, each with different transaction costs. This means that executing orders becomes cheaper once you have completed more transactions in the past 30 days. In your transaction history you can easily find your transaction volume over the past 30 days and the corresponding scale.

Example tradingfee

Suppose you want to buy € 1,000 Bitcoin. We assume the maximum (taker) fee of 0.25%. € 1,000 * 0.25% = € 2.50 trade costs. This means that you have bought € 997.50 in Bitcoin. Trading costs are processed directly in the transaction.

Rounding

Because transaction fees might cause unrounded amounts, it could be necessary to round off the transaction fee. Bitvavo supports payments in Euro until 2 digits after the decimal point and for payments in digital currency until 6 digits after the decimal point. If you owe the transaction fee of a smaller amount, the fee will be rounded up.

For example, a transaction fee of  €0,073 will be rounded up to €0,08.
