Does eToro pay dividends?

YES WE DO.

Your account may be either credited or debited if you are trading a stock, ETF or index that pays a dividend

By holding the position before market close on the day before the ex-dividend day, the dividend payment will reflect in your available balance, when announced.

Receiving a dividend payment is a taxable event in some cases and jurisdictions. The percentage of the dividend you will receive after the appropriate tax rate is applied is detailed below.

 

Stocks and ETFs

When a stock pays a dividend, its following morning opening price will be at a lower rate depending on the amount of the dividend.
