Don't open 5paisa trading account. Cheating investors/traders money without informations. Be careful.

Don't open trading account open in 5paise company. Cheating public money.

First time investors transferring funds for trading purposes, immediately block rs.450+ towards account closing / other charges. Worst services provided.

They say Margin trading upto 3.5 times is available but they didn't say that there was margin charges of 0.05% PER DAY....NOTE:per DAY.

Now, i have margin of suppose 1lakhs, now that makes charges of Rs500/day. Is that free?
This is pure making fool out of customers.
I prefer giving "0" stars but facility not there

5paisa claims that they charge the lowest brokerage is not true at all. They levy other hidden charges and most of the times, the charges, even if the customer has asked not to charge. They renew those charges, without the consent of the customers. The DP charges are high. When asked to close the account, they don't close the account. I have sent them request to close my account several times via mail, and sent my signed request on two occasions, but still my account is active with them. I WOULD NEVER SUGGEST TO OPEN A TRADING ACCOUNT WITH 5 PAISA. (Client ID 50850062)

5 paisa is worst brokerage i have ever used. They do not have concern to talk to customer in customer service. If you transferred money to their account. You need to send screenshot and message from from the bank to their support. They will never ad your funds. If you called they will say within 2 hours it will updated. After 2 hours call again and shout their answer will be "I will understand" they are not recruiting even people good in communication. Its not happened 1st time. Its happening for me 10th time. Every time i want to lose my temper and shout then only they will proceed. I am in abroad now how to call them freely. Even if you said this they will put your call on hold for more than 10 mins. First work to do when came back to India is closing this irritating 5 paisa account. Hate their service.

My name is Mahesh Gokhale and my 5paisa customer ID: 58121962.
I would soon be closing it after 31st March.

This is the worst brokerage firm I ever found. Such a stupid firm that does not provide any report on your Profit and Loss statement. They simply don't have such a report.

Highest DP charges. Their mobile application hangs when you need it the most. On a business day between 2:45 pm to 3:25 pm, most of the times, your orders wont make it to NSE. After that there is no use.

I wrote an email to grievance department as well as compliance department for providing proper Profit & Loss statements and other issue and they sent me links for the reports.

You know what, they don't know how to generate professional reports.
Their P&L reports are missing Total. They have very substandard reports for any of the segment.

I would advise you not to join if you are thinking of joining it for the sake of 10 rupees of brokerage.

Go to some professional brokerage firm instead.

I think you have not came across real 3rd class brockerage house till now. If 5paisa is 3rd class then there are no 1st class brocker in India. Sorry my friend I would recommend everyone 5paisa because they are much much better than others in every aspect.

The best discount brocker. I have another Demat account at Axis Securities. But since I opened my account at 5 paisa I started trading here and like to close my account at Axis direct shortly. 5 paisa charging only 10 rs flat brockerage. The advantage of flat brokerage is that as many as quantity purchased, the real costing value of a stock become cheaper even adding all the other applicable taxes like STT, GST, transanction charges, stamp duty etc. Where as Axis direct charging 0.5% for delivery and 0.05% for intraday trading. In a same trading I can get much more profit in 5paisa than Axis direct. Another point is that Axis direct is charging 0.06% not less than 50 rs for stock sell out from demat. Where 5paisa charge only 25 rs flat.
I was novis and fall in trap by the agent that I have opened account in Axis direct. Later I have searched in the net and found this and got lot of knowledge about brockerage houses and their charges, facilities. Thanks to for showing me path and helped me to choose the right brockerage house.
I wish and hope that every new invester before opening a Demat account, go through and find a brockerage house of there choice. But I would suggest everyone of my near and dear to go with 5paisa.
Pros about 5paisa
1. Discount brokerage. Only 10 rs flat for all segment.
2. Mobile app is good and user friendly. I like the Mobile app. Much better than Axis direct.
3. Contact note is pitty clear about charges and taxes deducted. No hidden charges.
4. Pay out is also hazard free. Just go to payout option and claim your payout. The money will be cradited in the linked bank account within 2 working days.
What more we want?
I pray for every new comer not to fall in trap by the agents and get some knowledge before opening an account and investing in stock market. Good save them.

Guy please, don't go for 5PAISA. It's totally insane, idiotic and pathetic service. Sometimes the app/desktop buy and sell shares it self. Lost week Ilost 4500 and today around 2000 due to this. Sometimes you cannot square off your orders. lost my hard earned money in 5Paisa only reason their pathetic service. Whatever complaint you raise through email, they simply reply please check your bill and if u call customer care they will give u two choices, please send us mail or speak with trade section. You know what is the charge for speaking with trade section ? 100 rupees per minute ! yes its true. They are pathetic brokers. No way you can earn money in 5PAISA.

There are many worst experiences with 5 Paisa.

1. Poor and non-responsive customer service. Lethargic responses for call and mail. No responses for mails mostly.
2. Frequent server issues
3. Technical issues - My account says I have open positions though i have squared off. Their system says there are no positions. Later, it is Vice Versa.
4. Details on account closing procedure were not provided though I have requested multiple times.
5. Sorry is the only word in their trade dictionary.
