How to Sell Shares in Australia

Do you need to sell shares in Australia? The good news is that selling shares can be a relatively simple process.

To sell shares in Australia you will need to engage a broker or broking service who will sell your shares for you on the share market.

For shares you hold directly, this doesn’t mean that you already need to have a stockbroker or that you need to use an expensive full-service broking firm.

A popular option is to use an online broking service like Sell My Shares that will manage the transaction for you.
