What are ThinkMarkets rebates?

Forex rebates reduce the spread or transaction cost paid by a trader on every trade, whether it’s a win or a loss. Rebate payment are offered in 3 forms including spread and commission reductions, daily trading account deposits, and monthly cash payments via bank wire, Paypal, Skrill and others.

How do ThinkMarkets rebates work?

When a trader links their new or existing forex trading account to us, the broker pays us a volume based commission for every trade that's placed. We then pay most of this back to our clients. Unlike a few of our competitors your spreads will never increase as a result of using our service. Instead, you'll pay lower transaction costs and increase your win ratio. Ultimately, you get a better deal working with us than working only with the broker.

Which ThinkMarkets rebate program is the best?

Our business model and theme is offering the highest rebate rates at every popular forex broker. We do this by adjusting our rates whenever we find a competitor offering more. Our clients can rest assured they are getting the highest rebates possible combined with the best possible customer support and consistent, timely and accurate rebates.

Will my ThinkMarkets spreads increase?

There may be a few scammy forex rebate providers out there that do this but we do not. It would be deceptive, unethical, and totally against our business model, not to mention customers would quickly catch on and write horrible reviews! The easiest way to alleviate such a concern is just ask customer support at ThinkMarkets.

How can it be better to work through a 'middle-man' than just working directly with ThinkMarkets?

ThinkMarkets rebates are similar in nature to a credit card rewards program. Let’s take a Visa credit card for example. When a consumer purchases something using a credit card the vendor incurs a fee of between 1.5% – 3% which they pay to Visa. Many consumers are enrolled in a credit card rewards program and receive approximately 1% cashback reward on any credit card purchase they make. Is it free money? Yes and no. It’s money the consumer would not have received if they were not signed up with the rewards program, however it’s paid for out of fees charged to the vendor who will naturally build such fees into the cost of their products.

A forex rebate provider typically has a contractual relationship with a number of different forex brokers and earns a commission for each trade placed by a trader they refer to the forex broker. The marketing benefits afforded to forex brokers by such a system are substantial, from actual referred clients to branding, added search engine visibility, etc. The rebate provider then pays the client a cash rebate from the commission they earn from the forex broker.

Are ThinkMarkets rebates worth the effort?

The biggest obstacle to any forex trader is the cost of the transaction. It may seem small, but in fact it’s the biggest factor that gives the trader less than a 50% chance of winning any particular trade. This seemingly small cost can be devastating when compounded, and in the long term if the trader relies on luck alone they are sure to continually lose on their investment. ThinkMarkets rebates reduce the cost of the transaction and increases a trader’s probability of winning. Still, a trader must rely on their trading skill to close the remainder of the gap.

Why don't you offer more forex rebate brokers?

We have chosen to focus on the more reliable, competitive and trustworthy brokers. If we were to add every forex broker that approached us we would have at least several hundred. Currently we have a relationship with all of the most popular broker’s across the globe. As a customer-focused company our paramount concern is that we send clients to broker’s where they will be able to withdraw their funds easily when the time comes; and experience fair trading conditions and good customer service.
