Fees when buying
Using CoinHQ is simple but behind the scenes many actions take place to make things easy.
These actions also incur fees in which we want to be as transparent as possible about.

CoinHQ's fee on all buy and sell transactions is 1% which consists of:

  • 0.5% trading fee

  • 0.5% foreign exchange (FX) fee

For debit/credit card payments, a payment processing fee of 2.7% + $0.30 is charged directly by Stripe to facilitate your payment to CoinHQ. Some card issuers may charge additional fees or treat the payment as a cash advance. Please check with your bank for more information.
