**You can find the full trading fee schedule by clicking here. **

Our Kraken.com platform matches orders from users who want to buy cryptocurrencies with orders from users who want to sell cryptocurrencies (or vice versa).

We charge a fee when your order is *executed* (matched with another user's order). The fee ranges from 0% to 0.26% of the total cost (value) of your order and depends on the following:

- The currency pair that is being traded
- Your 30-day trading volume (in USD)
- Whether your order is maker or taker

Orders that are cancelled before being executed (also known as "untouched" orders) do **not** incur any fees.

### Margin fees

If you are trading using leverage (an optional, advanced feature), the following additional fees will be applied:

### Fee currency selection

The trade order form lets you set your *preference* for the currency in which your profit, loss, and non-margin fees are determined if the order is filled. But it won't necessarily give you your choice (for example, if you set it to a currency in which you have zero balance).

Also, fee currency selection does **not** apply to margin fees.

### Example 1

Let’s assume the following:

- You want to purchase 2 Bitcoin (XBT) at a price of $5,000
- Your 30-day trading volume is currently at $125,000
- Your order is executed with taker fees

In this example, the total costs of your order equals 2 * $5,000 = $10,000. According to the fee schedule for the XBT/USD market, at this volume you will either be charged the maker fee of 0.12% or the taker fee of 0.22%. Because your order is executed with taker fees, the total fee can be calculated as follows:

*($10,000 / 100) * 0.22 = $22*

Now, let’s assume that your 30-day trading volume was already at $1,000,000 and the above order gets executed with maker fees. According to the fee schedule for the XBT/USD market, at this volume you will either be charged the maker fee of 0.06% or the taker fee of 0.16%. Because your order is executed with maker fees, the total fee can now be calculated as follows:

*($10,000 / 100) * 0.06 = $6*

### Example 2

Let’s assume the following:

- You want to short sell 50 Ethereum (ETH) at a price of $400
- Your 30-day trading volume is currently at $0.00
- Your order is executed with taker fees

In this example, the total costs of your order equals 50 * $400 = $20,000. According to the fee schedule for the ETH/USD market, at this volume you will either be charged the maker fee of 0.16% or the taker fee of 0.26%. Because your order is executed with taker fees, the initial trade fee can be calculated as follows:

*($20,000 / 100) * 0.26 = $52*

As you are opening a position with this order, you are also charged the opening fee. According to the margin fees as listed for the ETH/USD market, this fee is set at 0.02% and can be calculated for this order as follows:

*($20,000 / 100) * 0.02 = $4*

If you add the initial trade costs and the costs for opening the position, the total fees for this order up until now can be calculated as: ($52 + $4) = $56

Additionally, while this position remains open, a rollover fee of 0.02% per 4 hours is charged. This means that if you leave the position open for 24 hours, the rollover fee will be charged (24 / 4) = 6 times and can be calculated as:

*($20,000 / 100) * 0.02 * 6 = $24*

Finally, if you close this position after 24 hours at a price of $200, the total costs of your closing order equals 50 * $200 = $10,000. The trade fees for the closing order can be calculated as:

*($10,000 / 100) * 0.26 = $26*

This means that the total fee amount for opening the position, maintaining the position for 24 hours and subsequently closing the position equal to ($52 + $4 + $24 +$26) = $106.
