Could Freetrade implement a pass to access the features offered by plus membership for a day?
I’m a member who doesn’t do a lot of trading and only holds a general account so monthly Freetrade plus membership isn’t really for me. However if it was available for a day to access plus stock listings and trading features it would appeal to a wider audience. Even a per transaction basis maybe better for some members.
Whilst I appreciate your point, I do wish people would stop trying to get Plus for free/cheaper FT need X money to run and this is the model they have chosen. If they made it cheaper to dodge this revenue stream then they would need to increase costs elsewhere on the platform which would bring a new set of ideas to reduce that cost.
You could deposit whatever each month and then buy plus for 1 month and then cancel and redo in 3 months time.
Yes, but the choice would be yours to make.
There could be tiered Plus levels, maybe £3 for 1 week, then £9.99 for a month. Still makes sense to get the month, but some people might only want a few days. It has to make sense for FT to offer something different to the monthly sub.
I’d be interested to know if you get the Plus for £9.99 per month, are you tied into that for a set amount of time, or can you get 1 month and then cancel? What happens to shares only available to Plus members when you cancel?
I did suggest they should give 3 months plus free instead of or with the share to get people into the Plus universe as most won’t leave once they are in it. but your option of choice is another good idea.
You can sell any shares of stocks you own and get the dividends as mentioned.
You can’t buy more of the stocks that are available on the Plus only. There are plenty of stocks we can invest in without Plus, while a smaller amount of stocks are exclusively for Plus subscribers. You would be able to carry on adding up to the stocks available outside Plus even if you had invested in them while subscribed to Plus. It’s the ones that you can buy with a Plus subscription only that you wouldn’t be able to add up to. Makes sense?
Hargrieves Landsdown charge between £6-12 (Per Trade) FT saves thousands/year . Suck it up and pay up my interest each month covers the cost. About 33p a day. The time taken for you to moan costs more even on minimum wage. A single trade on HL @ £11.95 if less than 10 per month FT would have to charge at least £2 a day or charge £5 per trade. Just invest well and make 50p a day and you are sorted 17p after fee.
