Can I sell shares through CommSec as a One-Off Trade without opening a trading account?

We used to offer a One-Off Trade option, but unfortunately we have now stopped this service. If you want to sell a shareholding through CommSec, you'll need to open a CommSec Share Trading Account in the same name that the shares are registered under.

Here's how to find out what name your shares are registered under:

  • Look for your latest dividend or holding statement for each share holding you want to sell
  • Log onto the share registry website and view your details online (website details should be detailed on the statement)

Click here to open a CommSec Share Trading Account online.

Once your CommSec Share Trading Account is open, you'll need to transfer your shares from the share registry to your CommSec trading account before you can sell them.

If you already have a CommSec Share Trading Account in the same name as the shares, you can go ahead and transfer the shares to your CommSec account, then place an order to sell them.
