    If I bought Tesla shares, would the share certificates be sent to me?
    Also could I see details of costs and charges BEFORE purchasing?

      Hi Owen,

      Thanks for getting in touch with Finder. I hope all is well with you. 😃

      Generally, the trend is that companies are moving toward the electronic model. For this reason, you would see companies having electronic copies of your certificate rather giving you paper share certificates. If they do provide paper share certificate, you might need to pay an extra fee for that.

      As for Tesla, I can’t find specific information whether they provide paper share certificates. However, in forums, I read they do but you need to pay hundreds of dollars for it.

      You may directly get in touch with Tesla to confirm and get more information.

      Yes, you should know more about the details of the share you are about to purchase from Tesla. You can know more about this through your broker or from Tesla itself.

      I hope this helps. Should you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to reach us out again.

      Have a wonderful day!

      Hi Hasan,

      Thanks for getting in touch with finder. I hope all is well with you. :)

      1. You can buy shares using a broker by choosing a trading platform. You can check your options using our table above. You can compare based on price per trade, trader rate, and platform fees. You can then click on the “Go to site” green button of your chosen platform to be redirected to their official website.

      2. That would depend on which platform you choose. To learn more, you can check with your provider.

      3. If you are going with Tesla, at the time of this writing, they do not pay dividends on their shares.

      I hope this helps. Should you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to reach us out again.

      Have a wonderful day!
