How it Works
How to Buy Shares
When you buy a share in a player you are making a bet on their future performance and career success. The better they perform, the more dividends they will earn and the higher their share price is likely to rise!
So, when you buy a share in a player, you are betting that you are going to make a profit from earning dividends when that player performs well. If you're right then the value of your shares are likely to rise too!
Tap the buy button next to the player you would like to buy shares in
Enter the number of shares you would like to buy & Enter the price you would like to buy them at
Tip: You can Buy a maximum of 100 Shares per order but place as many orders as you like.
You bought all of your shares at the price you wanted. You can now check your Sportfolio and see your shares.
Order Partially Matched
You bought some of your shares at the price you wanted and the remainder are sitting in the orderbook waiting for another user to sell at the same price and match you.
None of your shares are matched yet and your order is sitting in the orderbook waiting for another user to sell at the same price and match you.
Unmatched Buy Orders
You can decide to try and buy shares at any price you like!
Think of it like buying a house, you can either pay what the seller is asking and strike a deal straight away or try your luck by placing a bid below the price and see if you can get it cheaper!
When you place a Buy order lower than the current market price then your order is placed in the orderbook. This is known as placing a bid.
Your order will stay in the orderbook until it is matched unless you decide to cancel it. You can check the status of any bids you place in the ‘Open Orders’ tab.
Placing a bid might mean you are able to buy shares for a cheaper price but it might also mean you miss out and end up having to pay even more for the shares if the price rises in the meantime!
