Trading Fee Calculation

There are two kinds of trades on WazirX:

  • Spot Trade: For fee distribution according to coin, please visit: 
  • P2P: No fee applicable.

The effective trading fees you pay will be determined by the amount of WRX held by you on WazirX. The more WRX you hold, the lower your trading fees will be. Based on your WRX holding at the time of the trade, your trading fee rate will be determined as follows:

WRX HoldingsTrading Fee Payable
0-10 WRX0.20%
10-200 WRX0.17%
200-1000 WRX0.15%
>1000 WRX0.10%

For example, let’s say that you’re holding 250 WRX on WazirX, and you buy 100 USDT worth of BTC in the USDT market. In this case, you will have to pay a trading fee of 0.15% on this order, i.e., 0.15 USDT.
