Trading Fees

Trading Fees according to Payment method

At FIFO Bitcoin we keep Trading Fees low.  Our payment partners offer a range of payment methods, each with varying trading fee structures.


For Bitcoin & Ethereum purchases, you are charged a 5.9% commission on your purchase amount.


For BPAY, Newsagent (blueshyft), Australia Post and credit card payment methods an additional  gateway surcharge to the purchase amount after the commission is added.

Newsagent (in store cash) 3.9% 2%
Credit Card 3.9% 1.99%

( GST is applied to the commission and surcharge amount.)

Transaction fees

Unlike other exchanges who have user accounts and will charge you deposit, withdrawal and transaction fees, FIFO Bitcoin’s payment  partners do not charge any transaction fees.

Therefore, this benefits you because we don’t have the cost of holding any cryptocurrency funds for our customers within user accounts.

This simple approach allows you to provide your own Bitcoin or Ethereum wallet address when buying from us. Additionally this means you are always in control of your Bitcoin. Remember, IF ITS NOT YOUR BITCOIN WALLET, ITS NOT YOUR BITCOIN.

Please Note: fees shown above are for fees charged by our payment partners. Some  payment providers including banks may also have their own charges such as transfer fees.
