Invest by Freetrade: the upgrade has begun


Team Invest upgrading your acccounts


Happy New Year to all Freetraders :wave:

Let’s kick things off with an update on Invest by Freetrade, our homegrown brokerage platform which we’ve been working on for well over a year now.

Invest by Freetrade will bring you:

  • Instant deposits with Apple Pay and Google Pay as soon as you’re upgraded. :zap:
  • A smoother and faster app experience , thanks to a reduced dependency on third-party platforms. :moneybag:
  • New features in the next few weeks, such as thousands of new stocks and fractional shares. :pizza:
  • Our premium account, which will be launched in the next few months. :a:

Now we’re finished beta testing the platform and it all looks a-okay, we’re starting to upgrade customer accounts to be on Invest by Freetrade in weekly batches.

Thanks again to all beta testers for their feedback so far. :pray:

When will I get upgraded?

You don’t need to do anything now, we’ll let you know when your account has been upgraded in the next few weeks.

If you have any other questions about your account upgrade, just drop us a line on the in-app chat.

Does anything else change on my app?

Nothing else changes, apart from the improvements we mentioned above — plus a surprise new feature we can’t say too much about but that we know you’ll love. :wink:

We can’t wait for everyone to be upgraded, so stay tuned!

Great to see. For upgrades can we get another decimal point added or the option to add a couple more decimal points as the small penny stocks fluctuate and getting a more specific price will help.

Thanks - Tarran

Also, a link to the company’s website you can click through straight on the app. Potentially a news flow page as well, where you can click through a look at news flow for each stock, similar to how the Blockfolio app in the crypto space have set up.

Cheers

Don’t they have their own proper desks for doing that kind of thing? :laughing:

Thanks. When we buy shares in other currency e.g please can the share price in also be shown rather than price in £. Many of us may also be recording our stock portfolio on app such as Yahoo finance.

For some reason dollar sign got taken out. Can we have share price in currency of the relevant share market.
