Fees and methods of deposit at FXTM
There are no deposit fees associated with FXTM. In this case, you won’t have to worry about the broker deducting fees from your deposits; you only have to think about the bank fees/third party fees you incur when you deposit money.
- Based on the different transfer methods, the average time is as follow;
- Wire transfer: it can take up to 2-3 business days
- Credit/ debit card or online wallets: it is an instant transaction or may take a few hours.
The only problem with depositing money in the FXTM broker account is that it isn’t as user friendly as other FX brokers. In other words, either the interface is difficult to use, or you have trouble figuring out what to do to make the transfer.
Trading accounts are created in a base currency, which means your money will be held in that currency. You can also have three or more trading accounts at some brokers. The major currencies supported by FXTM are
- ZAR, and more.
Online brokers don’t need to convert currency if you would have deposited in a major currency anyway. However, you must be aware that FXTM will convert your deposits and charge currency conversion fees if your minor currency isn’t supported.

How to make the minimum deposit?
Sending your minimum deposit to FXTM might require slightly different steps, but in general, here’s what you need to do:
Step 1: Open an account with the broker
At most brokers, you can open an online account. When opening an account, you are usually required to provide personal information such as your date of birth and employment status. A financial aptitude test is usually included as well.
Account opening includes verifying your identity and residency. You will be required to upload a picture of your ID card and a document proving your address, such as a bank statement, as part of this verification process.
Step 2: Make a deposit
Log into your open trading account first before making a deposit. Once you have chosen a deposit method and entered the desired amount, you are ready to deposit.
Among the methods of deposit are:
Bank wire transfer
If you want to deposit funds, you must provide your bank account number. First, you need a bank account. Your bank account should then be used to initiate the transfer. Once you receive a broker’s reference number, you’ll need to write a comment about the transaction. By doing so, your deposit can be identified.
When making an online purchase, the same card information needs to be entered. Your card must be used, however. As with IC Markets, your broker will also require that you scan and send your card for verification.
Online Wallets like PayPal, Skrill, and Neteller
It works similarly to any other online purchase. Your transaction will be completed once the wallet interface loads with your login credentials (username and password).
Step 3: Review your transaction
Depending on the method you use, FXTM can take up to two days to post your deposit to your brokerage account. A confirmation email is sent in such cases by FXTM brokers.
The FXTM minimum deposit can vary with the account type, and the least amount you have to pay is in the Cent account, i.e. $50. Moreover, with FXTM, you can access a wide range of deposit methods and currencies, making trading easier for clients. Also, no deposit fees can save the traders from paying hidden and unknown payments to the broker.
