Caught them scamming

With proof and evidence that this broker is out to scam and fool you. When you trade with their demo account on ctrader, the spread is usually 0.0-0.1 pips because they charge a commission of about 0.8pipe for every trade.. But when you compare the spread diffences between their demo (to hook you in) and a life account after you've funded it, there will be a huge difference. At the exact time when they charge 0.0 - 0.1 pips(spread) + 0.8 pips(commission) for their Demo, they charge 1.1-1.8 pips (spread) + 0.8 pips (commission) 1.9-2.7 pips and they "ENCOURAGE SCALPING"! ROFLMAO!! XD

Hi Terence,

Thank you for your feedback and apologies if the experience did not live up to expectations.

If the spread on your live account is wider than your demo it may mean that your live account is a Standard account but your demo is our Razor account. However, you should not be charged commissions on your Standard account - only the Razor one.

As such, could you forward your account details to support@pepperstone.com so we can look into the issue for you?

good broker

Good experience with this broker.
Have no issues.
I am concerned that some of there moves failed to spike through my tp when on other brokers it would have. I am uncertain if this is because pepperstone is less "spikey" than other brokers or another reason. Trades still closed in profit.

Funds being reversed back due to loss of bank card but still not getting proper reply as to where are they

Hello everyone
I'm Ntombi from South Africa. My case is on the case of withdrawing funds for from my account, bank card getting lost in the process of withdrawal and funds being reversed back to Pepperstone prior to to closing the card number. I really think the process of how such cases are handled by Pepperstone are slightly unfair.

I contacted Pepperstone on live chat and was told to contact the accounts team via email with this issue. After explaining the issue, I was told that it would take 60 days for me to get back the funds withdrawn in another method since the card was closed due to loss. I further appealed as adviced by one of their operators on call by sending proof that the account was blocked by my bank as the card got lost as well as a notification from the bank that the funds were returned back to Pepperstone on the 18 of September. The accounts team send back an email saying they still have not received the reversal of the amounts withdrawn on the 12 and 13 September

In the whole of last week I contacted them via phone call and the operators kept on saying that process could take up to 10 business working days. So I have been getting different feedback from accounts and operators on call.

What exactly Happens in the process of getting back funds to me...if it takes 60 days, I still have not received the actual date of my funds being returned prior to the reversal that took place on the 18th of September... Plead help. I do not want to believe that Pepperstone is a scam

Thank you for your your review.

Please note that there are withdrawal rules regarding card withdrawals and deposits in that if you deposit by card and if you withdraw within 60 days of that deposit you must first return those deposits back to you card

If the card has been deactivated then unfortunately you would need to wait 60 days from the date of your last card deposit to withdraw by another method

Regarding the status of your funds, would you be able to get confirmation from your bank that they sent the funds back and email that to support@pepperstone.com so we can investigate for you?

ePayments funding/withdrawal

Hi there. Order execution has been fine so far, but I wish there were more funding/withdrawal options like ePayments. This company is far better than Skrill/Neteller as regarded fees. And it's also FCA regulated. Can you please consider partnership with ePayments?

Hi David,

My apologies for the experience, you should not be waiting a month for a reply.

I am inclined to suggest reaching out to support@pepperstone.com so we can look into it further for you but that

I have checked our support cases marked as 'trade investigations' and from a David in your region and they all do appear to be resolved. Can you reply to this comment with any further details you would be willing to provide so I can look into it more personally for you?

Best Broker Should consider on Instant Withdrawal of Funds in Electronic Channel like Skrill and Paypal

I have been trading with pepperstone since last 3 years. they are the best in terms of industry lowest spread, good execution and wonderful supporting team.

Pepperstone would be the worlds best Company if they offer instant withdrawal of funds in electronic payments like Skrill, Paypal etc. as it is offered today by many broker Companies around the globe.

Yes! Many traders want instant withdrawal of fund!

Excellent brokerb

I very much recommend this broker for numerous reasons. I as an EU citizen use its UK branch, which is regulated by FCA. That of course is one great thing to have. I'm trading with Pepperstone for a few months and so far everything worked well. When I had technical difficulties, their support was very fast, responsive and helpful as well. I count to pleasant bonus great webinars and analytical service from BKForex (Kathy Lien and co), special tools like AutoCharter and many other goodies.
