Payment information

  1. When do I get paid?

    We get previous month’s trading volume reports from brokers before the 15th day of the month. We proceed with the rebates calculation and add rebates to your profile before 25th day of the month.
    Traders get paid their rebates once per month on 25th day of month (rebates can be paid earlier before Christmas or Easter).

    Example:
    IB reports of September trading volume are received before 15th of October. Rebates are added to user profile before 25th of October and paid to users on 25th of October.

  2. How will I get paid?

    Rebates can be paid through:
    1. MoneyBookers (free);
    2. PayPal (free) + PayPal may charge you additional fee for receiving, Minimum $5;
    3. WebMoney Z Purse (free) + WebMoney transfer processing fee of 0.8% (not more than 50 WMZ);
    4. Wire transfer ($35 transfer fee).

  3. Is there minimum payout?

    We have set minimum $5 payout amount to PayPal. Other payment methods do not have payout minimum. But we recommend to select Wire payment only if your unpaid rebates exceeds $200, because wire transfer costs $35.

  4. Can you pay my rebates into my trading account?

    NO, common regulations prohibit brokers to accept payments into your account from a third party, because of anti-money laundering regulations. We are a third party to your account.

    But Dukascopy and Instaforex have implemented internal discount system, so you rebates are credited back to your account.

  5. I have not received my rebates. Why?

    You may have not received your payments due to these reasons:

    - you have selected to “Hold payment for the next month”, so the rebates payment will be postponed to next month basis payment day, next month’s 25th day;
    - you have not registered your trading account;
    - you have not registered your purchased product;

    If any of the reasons does not fit, please, contact us, we will check why it has happened.

  6. Can you pay my rebates in other currencies than USD?

    We receive IB commissions from brokers in USD, therefore we can not offer rebates to be paid in EUR, GBP, JPY or other currency.


Forex Rebate Service

  1. What if my trade loses, do I still get rebate?

    Yes, you will get rebate. There is no difference in this situation – if you win or loose, you get rebate on your traded volume.
    Note: Some brokers have policies regarding if traded position will be taken into account when calculating rebates. You should check it in the broker’s page in ForexTradingChoice.com.

  2. Why do I have to go register through you to receive rebates? Why cant I just sign up directly with wanted broker?

    If you go directly, you will not be able to get rebates. Therefore, you have to register with our introduced broker of your choice using the placed links or naming us as referring/introducing broker. Otherwise a Forex broker will not be able to find out that you have been referred by ForexTradingChoice.com.

  3. How do I sign up to get rebates?

    To join our Forex rebate service, you need to:
    1. register on Forextradingchoice.com;
    2. open an account with a participating broker of your choice using the links on our site;
    3. register your account.
    You can begin to trade then.

  4. Why clients do not pay more money when they go through an IB – ForexTradingChoice.com?

    ForexTradingChoice.com is an introducing broker (referring agent) to Forex brokers listed here. Main rule of partnership with Forex brokers – no increased spreads and no added commission fee. We are compensated by the broker (the company that holds the clients’ funds and execute the trades) we work with according to referred clients trading volume. This way we can offer traders a cash refund on every trade a trader executes
    We receive commission for every round turn trade our referred clients make. Then we give the majority of this commission back to them!

    We are just doing revenue sharing with referred Forex traders!

    Note: We DO NOT hold any funds! Clearing firm holds your funds.

    You will receive exactly the same spreads, execution, and other levels of service from your Forex broker that you would if you register directly to your selected Forex broker. The only difference – you will get monthly rebates.

  5. How can the clearing firm compensate the IB – ForexTradingChoice.com without making the client pay for it?

    The clearing firm pays referring/introducing agent a part of the spread for the referred trader. Trader get access to the same tight spreads that are available to all other clients of the clearing firm. This way of compensation is common and most of the clearing firms work with referring/introducing agents to get more clients.

    If you would not use our Forex rebate service, you will not get rebates according to your trading volume.

  6. What if the Broker that I want to trade through is not listed on ForexTradingChoice.com?

    Please contact us to let us know which Broker you would like to trade with. We are open for such suggestions.

    We have no authorization to access your account, because we partnership with Forex brokers as referring/introducing broker and not as money manager. Therefore, you will receive the same spreads, execution, and other levels of service from your selected Forex broker that you would if you would register directly at your selected Forex broker.

  8. I already have an account with one of the listed brokers. Can I still get rebates?

    It can be done. You will need to fill out a transfer form or fill out new account paperwork naming us as the Referring/Introducing Broker. This is an easy process that we expedite for you to ensure a timely transfer with little to no downtime in your trading.

    Yes, you can have unlimited number of accounts at each broker. Unless, broker has it’s own limitation on how many account trader can have.

It can be useful if you trade with several brokers and one broker accepts Moneybookers funding, so you can get rebates to your Moneybookers account and then fund your trading account. While other broker accepts PayPal funding, so you can get rebates from trading at this broker to your PayPal account and fund your trading account at that broker.

    But these multiple profiles can not be referrers for the same users other profiles. If such profiles are found, the profiles will have their referring party altered.
