Unless you've been living under a rock for the past year, you've probably heard of Robinhood and how it's led to an explosion of everyday people learning how to buy and trade stocks online. The stock market is a pretty difficult thing to predict in terms of success, but one thing is for certain: building a stock market app or platform can be highly profitable for you or your business.
Financial app development is a bit different from developing apps for other sectors or industries. For one, there is more legwork and paperwork involved in the process of starting a financial company. Another thing to remember is you'll need to actively keep paperwork related to your business, its financing, tax details, and other important documents related to your business. With all these possible restrictions and red tape to get through, you might be curious if developing a stock app is worth it. Let's take a look at some stats and insights to help you make your decision.
It's no secret that if you're a stock trader, a day trader, or simply someone looking to make some long-term investments that Robinhood might be the best app for you. Not only does it have consistent market data and informs users about upcoming dividends from the stocks they buy, but Robinhood is designed with user simplicity in mind to make trading for beginners easy. Moreover, Robinhood allows these users to invest whatever amount they want, design their own portfolios, and set up their own personalized savings plans. Additionally, they can use the app to purchase cryptocurrency on top of traditional stocks.
One thing you might be wondering: if Robinhood lets its users trade for free, then how do they make any money? What is their revenue stream? There's a specific way Robinhood makes its money, as well as a few ways those who make Robinhood-like apps can generate income for themselves as well. For one, Robinhood Gold provides the company with the majority of its revenue. The upgrade allows for extended trading hours for users and fewer limits on how much they can purchase within a single market period. These plans are monthly subscriptions and typically range anywhere from $10 to $200, decided by the tier the user chooses to go with.
Additionally, stock trading apps typically utilize trading fees. Trading fees can be anything from 1 to 3% of the total amount of a buy purchase, and it can be a lucrative way for companies to generate revenue. For example, cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase has a 3% fee on all transactions; leading the company to become a leader in the crypto trading industry.
So to review, most stock trading apps get their income sources from either:
