Placing an order from Tickertape is super easy!
Pre-requisite: Please ensure that you've connected your broker account and have sufficient funds in your broker account ledger to place the order. For details, see this article
Alrighty, so assuming that everything's in place - your broker account is connected to Tickertape and you have funds in your broker account ledger. There are multiple places from which you can place orders on stocks & ETFs on Tickertape:
- Stock widget: click on any stock name anywhere in the product and a small widget comes up then click on Place Order.
- From stock/ETF page: Click on the "Place Order" button on the left side-pane on web / bottom menu options on mobile.
Entering order details: When you click on Place Order, the order details popup is shown to you to configure your order, as shown below:
In this popup, you can specify the type of order - Buy or Sell and the quantity that you'd like to transact. The amount field is auto-populated using the combination of quantity and Last Traded Price of the stock. Since orders placed through Tickertape will be market orders, this number is an approximation of the final buy/sell amount as the trade might be executed at a different price than what is displayed here.
You can then choose to either place this individual order for this particular stock by clicking on Buy (or Sell) Now or you can Add to Basket and transact in bulk later at one go.
Check out the basket article to see how to transact in bulk.
