As of April 2018, new developers are required to pay a one-time registration fee. Developers may be allowed to register for one of two programs: TradingApp® Store or Open Platform Developer. All participants are expected to promote TradeStation products through the TradingApp® Store. Both programs allow developers to submit products for compliance review, validation of platform compatibility and to establish code protection provided through our automated system operators.
Registration fee for new developers: $139 one-time fee
Monthly TradingApp Store Developer (TAS) Fee: $99/month
Monthly Open Platform Developer (OPD) Fee: $69/month
Developer Program Comparison
TradingApp Store Developers are permitted to upload the full range of AppStore products types: Free, Premium, and Exclusive access.
Free products do not have a price associated with them, and may be subscribed to by brokerage and subscription clients alike.
Premium products carry a price and allow for an optional trial period if specified by the developer.
Exclusive access products are hidden on the TradingApp Store website, and access to these products must be granted directly by the developer. Billing for these products is handled entirely outside of TradeStation.
Open Platform Developers may only upload Exclusive Access products. After achieving ten or more simultaneous subscriptions to one or more of their products, the developer can opt to be become a TradingApp Store developer.
