Luno strives to be an affordable place to buy, sell, trade, store and use cryptocurrency. We have a transparent fee structure, without hiding any costs from our customers. The following fees may apply when using our products.

Depositing money

When depositing money into your local currency wallet, we levy a fee only where we incur costs to receive your money. Full details here.

Withdrawing money

When you withdraw local currency from Luno to your bank account, a small fee may apply. This admin fee is levied by our financial partners. Full details here.

Sending and receiving cryptocurrency

When sending Bitcoin, the fee is dynamic, meaning we look at the traffic on the Blockchain and levy a fee to ensure your transaction is processed quickly. It's free to receive Bitcoin and Ethereum, however, any Bitcoin amount received lower than BTC 0.0001 will have an equivalent receive fee applied in order to combat dust attacks. Ethereum send transactions are also subject to a nominal fee.

Buy or sell cryptocurrency

When you buy or sell cryptocurrency, we will show you the full price that you will pay for the transaction and no extra fees will be levied. Example of buying 0.01 BTC on desktop or mobile - the total amount in local currency that will be deducted for the transaction shown.

Trading fees

The Luno Exchange uses a maker-taker model, with market makers (adding liquidity) paying no fees and market takers paying a nominal fee. Read more about trading fees here.
