Once you’ve decided on the stock you’d like to buy, you can purchase it by following these steps:

  • Log into the Douugh app (or tap the ‘Home’ button if you are already logged in).

  • Tap 'Invest Jar’.

  • Tap ‘US Shares’.

Once you're in US Shares, to find the stock you're looking to buy you can:

  • Tap ‘Explore Shares’ to search for the US Shares or ETFs you want to buy.

  • Tap on ‘Watchlist’ then the stock you want to buy (if it is on your watchlist).

  • Tap on ‘Holdings’ then scroll down and tap on the stock you want to buy (if you already own some of the stock).

And once you are on the Investment Summary Screen for the stock you want to buy just tap ‘+ Buy’.

From here you can make a ‘Market Order’ or ‘Limit Order’ by tapping on the order drop down in the top right of the screen.

  • If you're making a Market Order you will just need to enter the amount you’d like to purchase (in USD), tap ‘Next’, ‘Confirm’ and ‘Submit’.

  • If you're making a Limit Order you will need to enter the amount per share you want to pay and the number of shares your looking to buy before tapping ‘Next’, ‘Confirm’ and ‘Submit’.

If you do not have enough funds in your US Wallet to fund the purchase you will need to fund your account and will be prompted to Top Up.

Once you have placed your order it will be executed at the next best price for market orders or when the stock reaches your desired price for limit orders.

Finally, if you want some more insight into Market or Limit orders then check out these guides:
