Forex Introducing Broker (IB)

Anyone can make some kind of profit on Forex. And you don’t have to trade currencies and study analysis to do it. Forex Introducing Broker is precisely such an operating model allowing to arrange this.

What Is an Introducing Broker?

An Introducing Broker (IB) is usually a partner engaged in the Forex business, e.g., running a Forex-related site, forum, or an educational center. The introducing Forex broker may be an individual or a company that receives income from each transaction completed by a client on the platform.

IB attracts clients to the partner broker’s trading platform, motivates existing clients to conduct more active trading, takes part in advertising campaigns (both held by the partner broker and their own), represents exclusively on its own behalf interests of the partner broker in the Internet (forums, blogs, etc.) or any other domain.

The main objective of IB is to attract the maximum possible number of active traders.

Examples of Introducing Brokers

Any individual or legal entity can be an introducing broker. It is not essential that their activities be related to financial services. Independent financial consultants, successful traders, and all sorts of sales managers can also make good IBs. Of course, it is advisable that such an individual has a loyal client base. 

How do Introducing brokers make money?

All an IB Forex partner has to do is refer clients to a trading platform and get rewarded for it. Every time one of your referred clients makes a trade, you get an IB Forex commission. The program is absolutely free and available to all registered users. It’s perfect for your first step in building a broad-based affiliate network.

These are the standard FXOpen terms for IB:

  • From 15% to 50% commission for ECN accounts
  • From 2.4 to 3.3 pips for STP accounts
  • From 15% to 50% of FXOpen Standard commission on Crypto accounts

The commission is paid for all closed trades of your referral and is credited at the end of the trading day. All the information about your referrals and the commission credited to your account is stored in the MyFXOpen Partnership section.

Also, FXOpen sets the following commission limits for the maximum commission you can receive. 

  • Max order commission is USD 100. 
  • Max day commission is USD 1000. 
  • Max commission sum from a single client is USD 10000. 

The number of people allowed to be recruited is unlimited. The more clients, the higher the income from an IB Forex trading program. As a rule, those who have experience in marketing and/or advertising usually achieve consistently high revenues in a fairly short period of time.

Difference between Forex IB and Forex Affiliate

The difference between the affiliate program and the introducing broker program is that IBs typically have direct contact and a closer relationship with their clients, while affiliate activities reach a larger and more general audience online. Also, the Forex IB program implies receiving a progressive rebate, while Affiliates receive a commission for each verified active trader based on the CPA model after the trial period.

How to become a Forex Introducing Broker

To become an FXOpen IB, you need to fulfill three simple steps:

  • Sign up with FXOpen
  • Attract new traders using your agent (referral) links
  • Start earning commission!

You can place a referral link on your website, in a blog, or use it as your forum signature, etc. Once an Internet user clicks such a link, goes to FXOpen website, and opens an account, they will become your referral and you will be credited partner’s remuneration (commission) from their trades. You can get your referral link in the section Partnership → Text links or generate it yourself as follows: add the tag ?agent=12345 to a URL address of a page you want to refer, where 12345 is your trading account number (or eWallet).
