Whether you're new to crypto or just looking to re-evaluate which exchanges you trade on, this exhaustive crypto exchange fee comparison guide will help you determine which exchange is the right place for your trading activity.

What fees you can expect from exchanges

In the fast-moving world of crypto, no one exchange is exactly alike. This holds true for the fees that you can expect to see on different platforms. Across a variety of exchanges, you can expect to find fees like:

Deposit and Withdrawal fees - these are fees that are deducted from your account balance when you deposit or withdraw funds. Generally, these fees are are going to be limited to certain amounts, but you may see them be higher or lower based on which country you're in or which account you're withdrawing into.

Trading Fees - Trading fees are going to be the general main source of income for any exchange. Exchanges are, after all, a system for making trades. If you're an active trader, these fees are going to be the fees you'll want to pay the most attention to. Luckily, some exchanges have incredibly low, or even 0% trading fees as they've found other ways to turn a profit and keep their doors open.

Borrowing Fees - If you're looking for an exchange to trade on margin, then you're likely going to incur borrowing and interest fees on the amount that you leverage. Just like a loan, these fees will vary depending upon how much crypto you end up borrowing or leveraging, and will also vary by exchange.
