Currency Preference

The broker allows only one base currency for its trading account, USD. The deposits made from anywhere in the world are converted and visible in your account in USD. 

The conversion rate from your local currency to your account’s base currency applies while depositing, so keeping an eye on the conversion rate might help you calculate how much local currency is required for a deposit in your eToro account’s base currency.

Account Types

The broker offers only one account type for its clients. However, the company divides its clients into two categories:[2]

  1. Retail Clients
  2. Professional Clients

The main difference between the two clients is that they are offered different leverages and levels of securities. Otherwise, all the features of the trading account are the same.

Payment Options

For its clients’ convenience, the broker provides a range of payment methods. Below is a list of the available methods:[3]
