I opened an account with Upstox a month ago and so far it has very good with brokerage services and reporting every day and the charges are applicable as said.No hidden charges are charged except in the delivery section you need pay 18.5+ GST which is DP charge not shown in Brokerage Calculator of Upstox. Overall It has been a good experience with the broker. A decent broker to be Honest.
Thank You.

I Sourendra Kumar Dey CL 144095 . Opened my new demat account just fifteen days ago and requested for link with my existing trading account with submitted necessary forms also requested to enable NSE , BSE cash segment trading facility . But 15 days over my account not enabled with NSE BSE cash segment . Repeatedly requested upstox team and send mail but no response from their side. I think very worst broker in the industry. I realy disapointed with this broker. Dont go with this broker as their sevice is worst . They are only hunting for new client not for old client.

I rate UPSTOX as WORST compared to others and specially they are cheaters. For greater leverage and priority, opted for priority account. But when we trade in banknifty options, an order of 400 Qty is split into small chunks of 40, 20,80 etc. and for each chunck the will be charging the brokerage separately. In my case, they charged around 300Rs brokerage for single transaction. Also, there is no facility to modify the entire order price in a shot for these small chunks.

The brokerage fees and charges are good and really competitive, their mobile app is also good. The problem is their web trading platform which is quite difficult for first timers, also though the customer service agents are polite you have to explain them everything twice. Other than that they are good.

In mobile app you can not sort the holding alphabetically to know the scripts quickly. I use mostly with Upstoxs Pro there are major following concerns (these are simple requirements for any stock investor): 1. To sign out you can not scroll-down. 2. In holding any corporate action like bonus shares issued, only quantity will be updated but the holding price remain as it is, which will show your holding in loss. (Raised my complaints but no response). It is simple arrangement to be made in upstox database but they don't have team to do it. 3. It will never updated the holding on time. 4. Before buying you need to check holdings quantity sorted either increasing or decreasing order which is not possible. It will show 1 first than 10, than 100, and next you will see 2, 20, 200. Ideally it shall display 1, 2, 20, 100 and than 200. 4, referral program is horrible, i refereed three friends one they diluted by not asking referral code, one account opening delayed more than 3 months, one account opening is still pending. Today i realized that i have made mistake by shifting my account with Upstox.

Guys, don't try to open account with upstox, they will take first account opening charges, then they will harass to open an account, afterthat you will leave Rs. 531/- amount.

Basically they are not earning with brokerage, they are earning with eat you account opening charges.

So be careful with this type of thief.

If any issue happen then pray to God, he will come and help but not Upstox customer care. They don't care that you are loosing trading for days and won't easily resolve your issue.

Specially stock trading and in API support.
No escalation route available so can't speed up the process and just be at their mercy.
