Charges for Using API -

HI Team

Wondering what is the brokerage fee going to be for using Upstox API - through third party software ?

I understand that API itself is free, however want to understand brokerage for orders placed using API.

Hi @UK_Mohit,

I would like to break your questions into 2 segments and answer

  1. Yes, creation of API is free of charge
  2. Brokerage of API is also free but with T&C

T&C are as follows

  1. If you are placing order via the app you create to access API i.e via API Key and Secret with app marked as API trading - the free brokerage will be free till 31st Aug, 2024. Even if these orders are from third-party where you are entering your API Key and Secret voluntarily.
  2. If you are placing the order from a third party software where the third-party is using UpLink Business i.e you are getting auto logged in on the third-party platform via Upstox login system, standard charges apply

Charges applicable - Brokerage Charges - STT Charges - Demat Charges - Upstox

Thanks for your reply

So my understanding is correct to assume that third algos like Algotest, Tradetron falls in 1st category.
