The app interface is usually smooth and trading and investing is convenient. But today, I was unable to login to the app during market hours as it had some issues. They said they're trying to sort it out, but precious time was lost and I lost out on an important buy. This is unacceptable for a stock broker!

It's good for traders due to high margine, But it's brokerage is higher then zreodha. And in priority pack brokerage is 0.1% which is very high

pros: 1.) mobile application is easy to use. 2.)offers almost every feature like investing in digital gold, small case, MF's, foreign equities. cons: 1.) app is vulnerable with frequent login issues, lags etc., 2.) Backoffice is not integrated into the app. You need to make an extra effort to login using keystone(or)bo.upstox. 3.)Beware of investing in Mutual Funds because they offer Regular Plan instead of Direct plan. So you need pay little extra commission in expense ratio. 4.) Very bad stock price alert system. In zerodha, there is Sentinel(price alert system) which is way better. 5.)No basket order and GTT order availability. 6.) Also for investors with very low capital(less than 50k) there is an option to avail BSDA option which is not offered not by default by the broker. You need to take the offline route to avail this facility.(In zerodha you can avail this facility by default provided yours is first demat demat account).

I use upstox from 3 years, my investing experience is very nice with upstox. app's interface was very smooth and user friendly, it's never laged. But upstox website laged sometimes, that cause I use app only. Sometimes I feel they taking more hidden charges from me, it's higher than any discount broker & and their customer contact services are slow. But I am comfortable with upstox.

I am using Upstox since a year. It was very easy opening account here as compared to Zerodha. The trust was also build when Pranjal Sir said in one of his video that trading can be done in Upstox. So my overall experience is good with Upstox.

1).Funds Not Getting Added. Their GooglePay & Other UPI Options Dont Work 99% Of Times. 2). If You Check Your Account At Night Every thing Is Disappeared (Due To Maintenance) All Equities Trading Account Balance Everything 0.Which Is Painful If You Dont Know The Reason. 3). Placed Orders Cancels Disappears Due To Technical Glitches & Amount Blocked For That Doesnt Become Usable For Upto 2 Hours . 4).Market Depth For Securities Doesnt Get Displayed Many Times. 5).Apps Every Months Keeps On Prompting To Change Password (Without Reason Annoying) While Website Keeps On Working With Old Password. 6).Delays & Lags In Placing Orders. (Many Times It Keeps On Loading Only). 7).Watch list Names Format Cannot Be Set By User.

I have ade-mateand trading account with Upstox I am using it almost one and half year. The all over experience is very nice but some where in customer support it must be need to improvise and the second hand the user experience of the appand web is very very good as well as the improvisation in new segments is very appreciable like IPO Digital gold Global Investment and the coll aboration with Smallcase.

Upstox is a very good broker but the only thing that I found missing is GTT order placement feature. And also It would be good for the trader if equity intra day brokerage was 0.05 instead of 0.03%. And the best part is trader scan directly access the free version of trading view inside the trading platform of Upstox. Support team is good and every time a raised a ticket I got assistance within 48hours.Thats my experience with upstox. ThankYou
