What are Maker and Taker fees?

The maker and taker model is a way to differentiate fees between trade orders that provide liquidity ("maker orders") and take away liquidity ("taker orders"). Maker and taker trade orders are charged different fees. 

Taker Orders

A trade order gets the ​taker​ fee if the trade order is matched immediately against an order already on the order book, which removes liquidity​.

All market orders will execute immediately, and will be charged the taker fee. This includes conditional orders that convert to a market order, such as a stop loss order and a take profit order.

Taker fees start at 0.26% and can go as low as 0.10%.

Maker Orders

A trade order gets the ​maker​ fee if the trade order is not matched immediately against an order already on the order book, which adds liquidity​.

You can use the Post Limit Order option to ensure that your limit order will be charged the maker fee or be cancelled.

Maker fees start at 0.16% and can go as low as 0.00%.
