To place a batch or instant order:

  1. Find the stock you’d like to buy on the Discover tab and tap on this!

  2. Scroll down the page to the Buy button.

  3. On the next page, type in the amount (GBP) you’d like to buy.

  4. At top of the screen under ‘Order type’, you'll see ‘Instant order’ when the market is open and ‘batch order’ when the market is closed.

  5. Tap ‘Review Order’.

  6. Review the order notes, tap ‘Confirm Buy’, and your order is then placed!

If placed during market hours, this will be an instant order and will execute immediately.

If placed when the market is closed, it will queue and process as a batch order. You can view your queued orders by scrolling down on the Portfolio tab.

EU batch orders begin processing at 9.15 AM, UK batch orders at 10 AM, and US batch orders at 3 PM when the market is next open.

The price you actually pay will always be the market price we achieve at the time your order is executed.
