Price execution

Get the best price possible

Unlike most online brokers, we don’t participate in payment for order flow (PFOF)—which means we don’t sell your trades to market makers. Being PFOF-free removes conflict of interest from our business model and allows us to get you the best possible price execution for your trades.

Are there fees to buy or sell stocks on Public?

At Public, stock and ETF trades are commission-free, meaning $0 commission trading on self-directed individual cash brokerage accounts that trade U.S. listed securities placed online. Other fees, like regulatory fees, subscription fees, wire transfer fees, and paper statement fees may apply. Public does offer users an ability to voluntarily tip Public to support our mission of making available stock trades without commission or accepting any payment for order flow (PFOF).

Does Public sell my trades to market markets?

We don’t sell your trades to market makers or other third parties. Instead, we route all orders directly to the exchanges and other execution venues. This not only aligns us with our customer, but it enables us to execute every order with the best price possible, not just a slightly better one.
