Here is a full guide on how to start using the IQ Option platform for our Indian traders. If you wonder what to begin with, read until the end to have a better understanding on how it all works!

Even before you deposit, you are welcome to use the Practice account balance. It has 10 000 USD of practice money that you can use to learn and train. This money cannot be withdrawn – it is only there for you to practice. This balance is renewable, which means that even if you spent it all, you can always refill it for free. To get to the Practice balance, just open the traderoom – you will see the Practice account balance in the orange colour.

How to deposit?

Once you decide to start using the Real balance, you are welcome to make a deposit to the platform. It can be done in several different ways:

  • Bank card (credit or debit) – Visa, Mastercard, 
  • UPI, Rupay, NetBanking,
  • E-wallets: Skrill, Perfect Money, Webmoney, Advcash
  • BTC deposit (will be converted to fiat money)

In order to make a deposit, simply go to the deposit page and choose one of the available options. Fill in the information about your card or e-wallet and choose the amount.

The currency of your account is set at the moment of the first deposit. This means that once you choose the currency – USD, EUR, GBP and make your first payment, it will not be possible to change the currency afterwards.

In case your bank card is in your national currency, the funds will be converted to the currency of your account automatically, at the moment of the deposit.

The minimum deposit is 10 EUR\USD\GBP. There are no fees for deposits and withdrawals on the platform. If you do not have an e-wallet and you need help in registering it, or if you have any questions regarding the payment methods in general, you are always welcome to contact the Support.

Is it legal in India?

How to withdraw?

Your withdrawal method will depend on the deposit method.
If you make a deposit from the card, you will be able to withdraw initial deposit amount back to the card, as it is processed as a refund. To be precise, you will be able to withdraw the sum of your deposits in last 90 days to your card. Everything that exceeds that amount (profit) should be withdrawn to an e wallet (Skrill, Neteller, Webmoney, Qiwi, Advcash).

In case you use an e-wallet to deposit, you will need to withdraw to the same e-wallet account only.
In order to withdraw funds, you should make a withdrawal request from the withdrawal page: https://iqoption.com/en/withdrawal
Withdrawals requests are processed from our side within 3 working days.
If you withdraw to the bank card, IQ Option immediately transfers the money to your bank. But it may take up to 21 days (3 weeks) to transfer money from the bank to your bank account.

The minimum withdrawal amount is 2 USD, so it is not possible to withdraw less than that. Note, that verification procedure is necessary for a withdrawal of funds.
