Webtrader

The WebTrader is DEGIRO’s own platform for investing.

With DEGIRO, there is no additional software to download when you start investing. Once you have an account, you simply use your username and password to log in to your WebTrader. The WebTrader is available in your browser as well as a standalone app for Android and iOS.

Yes, this is possible. You can download the DEGIRO-app for both the Android as the iOS operating systems. Furthermore, you are always able to use the MobileTrader on your browser.
In the top right hand corner of the WebTrader you will find the search box titled Search for a product. This will allow you to find a specific stock or another financial instrument. You can search for a stock by inserting its name, Ticker symbol, or ISIN code in the search box.
Products can be found using the ticker code, as long as the ticker code contains more than three characters. In due course other ticker codes will be added to the platform.
ISIN stands for International Securities Identification Number and identifies tradable securities by their unique code. This is the safest way of searching for products, because it minimises the chances of buying the wrong product. Different listings of the same product will have the same ISIN.
