Uphold pricing policy
Applies to mobile version (v 4.0 or above) & New Web Wallet
(Individual type accounts)
Uphold is not a free platform. We charge a spread every time you trade.
In the U.S. and Europe, our spread is typically 0.8 to 1.2% on BTC and ETH.
In other parts of the world, our spread on the majors is typically around 1.8%.
Spreads can be significantly higher for low-liquidity cryptos and tokens including XRP, ZIL, OXT, UPT, DOGE and others. Check rates at Preview before you trade.
Coordinated market activity such as Wall St Bets can distort markets. All the above spreads are likely to widen beyond those above during times of acute market stress.
Our spread is typically 0.2% between major national currencies such as EUR, USD, and GBP.
Our spread is typically 1.0%. For trading outside market hours, we add a small spread based on the stock's volatility. A clock icon will appear when the U.S. public market is closed. U.S. market hours are 9.30am to 4pm ET on business days.
Our spread is typically 3% on top of the bid-ask prices at our supplier.

Withdraw funds to bank accounts in 36 countries, or to private wallets on seven crypto networks - instantly and fee-free.
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. We don’t add hidden fees between Preview and Transact unlike some competitors. 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 prices: it's how order books on exchanges work.
We charge 0% deposit fees and 0% withdrawal fees.
Network Fees - charged when you withdraw to external crypto wallets - are passed on at cost and may vary depending on Network congestion.

What’s special about the Uphold Card
The Uphold Card allows you to spend crypto, national currencies and precious metals at more than 50 million merchants and virtually all ATMs worldwide. Anywhere that Mastercard is accepted.
A ‘true’ debit card rather than a pre-loadable card, it is far more widely accepted than many of its competitors.
The card brings a whole new level of utility to your Uphold account.
You can hook up your Uphold Card to bitcoin, for example, and withdraw local currency in more than 180 countries, benefiting from automatic deductions from your bitcoin balance without any manual conversion into USD.
Similarly, when you travel abroad you can use your Uphold Card and avoid the punitive FX rates charged by banks, which can be above 10%.
Last but not least: with the Uphold Card you’ll earn Crypto Reward on every transaction: 1% when you spend national currencies, and 2% for cryptocurrencies.
If you spend bitcoin, you get bitcoin back. What could be better? You spend what you want and get paid commission in the most (potentially) appreciative asset on the planet.
After you sign up you will be eligible for the UPHOLD card:
The Uphold Card is the first debit card allowing you to toggle between funding sources (crypto, fiat currencies, gold, etc.) and spend or withdraw funds at nearly 50 million merchants and ATMs worldwide.
