What are taker/maker fees?
A taker fee will be charged if your order was executed immediately against existing resting orders, as your order would remove (take) liquidity.
An order will be charged a maker fee if it was not executed immediately against existing liquidity, but was instead added to the order book before being matched with a taker (making liquidity).
Please note that market orders will always be considered taker orders and thus be charged taker fees. For limit orders, if you would like to ensure that your order is a maker order, please use the "Post Only" option when placing your order.
***Note that limit buys where the limit price is above the highest bid, and limit sells where the limit price is below the lowest ask, will take liquidity.
