You can withdraw money from your eToro account at any time up to the value of the balance of your account, minus the amount of margin used. You don't need to hold any money in your account, so it's possible to withdraw the full balance if you need to.

The important thing to remember is that any withdrawn funds will be sent directly to the account that you used to make the deposit. For example, if you made a deposit with a credit card then the money will be sent to your card.

Note that certain withdrawal methods take priority. If you are withdrawing your money onto a credit card, this will happen first, then PayPal and finally bank transfers. If your details have changed since you deposited the funds, then you will be asked by eToro to provide an alternative withdrawal method.

How long does it take to withdraw money from eToro?

It can take up to 1 business day for eToro to process your withdrawal request – assuming that all the details on your account are correct. Once the withdrawal is processed, the estimated time to receive payment depends entirely on your payment provider.

The typical timeframe for each payment method is:

  • Credit/Debit card – Up to 8 working days
  • PayPal – 1-2 business days
  • China Union Pay – 1-2 working days
  • Neteller – 1-2 working days
  • Skrill Limited UK – 1-2 working days
  • WebMoney – 1-2 working days
  • Bank Transfer/Wire Transfer – Up to 8 working days.

When it comes to bank transfers, if a large amount is being withdrawn then we suggest contacting your bank in advance. Large withdrawals may be put on security hold, causing further delays.

How much does eToro charge to withdraw?

  • eToro charges a flat $5 fee on all withdrawals
  • The minimum withdrawal amount is $30

If you're withdrawing funds in a different currency than USD, then you'll also be charged a conversion fee. This conversion fee will vary depending on your chosen currency.

You may also be charged a transfer fee by your own bank, credit card provider or PayPal once the transaction has taken place. You can keep up-to-date with the status of your withdrawal in the Portfolio tab. It's important to note that eToro fees are subject to change at any time, depending on market conditions.

Cancelling a withdrawal request

If you've changed your mind, don't worry. As long as your withdrawal status is Under Review, you can cancel your request by using the following steps:

  1. Log into your trading account and click on the tab that says Withdraw Funds
  2. This will open up a pop-up message. Use the Click Here link to view your withdrawal history
  3. Click the Reverse button on the withdrawal you want to cancel
  4. Confirm the cancellation

Your funds and any fees applied to the withdrawal will be immediately returned to your account. If the transaction is showing up as In Process, then it won't be possible to cancel the withdrawal. If this happens, you'll need to contact eToro directly for help.

Withdrawal issues and delays in payment

If the funds haven't appeared in your account, it's important to take into consideration processing and payment times. Depending on your chosen payment method, it can take up to 8 working days to process. Also, don't forget that it will also take eToro up to 1 business day to process your withdrawal request.

If you're still concerned, you can easily check the status of your withdrawal via your account:

  1. Click on the Portfolio tab
  2. Then click on the History tab
  3. Check to see which payment method your funds were sent

Alternatively, you can also check the email confirmation you would have received from eToro in relation to your withdrawal request. Public holidays can also cause a delay in payment, so check your calendar to make sure that your withdrawal request doesn't fall on or between one of these dates.
