How do I sell shares of alternative assets on Public?
Updated over a week ago
  1. Locate the asset you want to sell from your Portfolio screen on the mobile app and tap the asset to view that asset’s card. Please note: initially, buying and selling of alts will only be available in the mobile app.

  2. If you don’t see your shares of alts in your Portfolio screen, please be sure that you’ve enabled alternative assets in the app. To enable alternative assets, simply go to any alternative asset in the mobile app and click the “Enable Alts” button. Tip: if you’re having trouble finding an alternative asset in the app, several lists of popular alts will be featured on the “Explore” tab of the app.

  3. From the asset card of the asset you wish to sell, tap “Trade” then tap “Sell.”

  4. Enter your limit price (the minimum you’re willing to receive per share) as well as the number of shares you wish to sell. You may tap on the “i” in the price row to view the order book.

  5. View the estimated total for your order including fees and tap “Next.”

  6. Review your sell and tap “Submit.”

  7. Your order will be added to the order book and you will be notified when your order is executed.

  8. Once your order is executed, your shares will be removed from your Portfolio screen, and Buying Power will be added to your account.
