Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, you can always trade an IPO through a discount broker. Buying & selling an IPO becomes very easy once the trading and the demat account are set up appropriately.
Following are the benefits in buying and selling an IPOs through a discount broker. Reduced Brokerage Fee: Discount brokers charge a flat brokerage which is missing in case of full service brokers. Full service brokers usually charge %age brokerage and this incurs a lot of cost to an investors. So if any full service broker charge a brokerage of let say 0.03% then on a purchase of shares of worth of Rs 200,000 you end up paying Rs 600+ Taxes. In our case we charge a flat brokerage of Rs 20 + Taxes. Discount brokers therefore saves a lot of money of investors. Better Trading Platform: Usually discounts brokers don’t provide a good trading platform and experience but there are few discounts brokers like Samco, who are now focussing on delivering a world class trading platform and top notch user experience. Therefore narrowing down the gap between discount brokers and full service brokers.
Technically Speaking, SEBI has made mandatory to buy an IPO through ASBA channel but there is no regulation on how any investor can sell an IPO allotted shares. Therefore, smart investors can always sell IPO allotted shares through a discount broker
