On the terms of technology, Upstox or RKSV Securities offers you fast trading through Upstox Pro Web, Pro Mobile App, and NEST trading platforms. It has some other partner platforms which are available for advanced traders, such as Dartstock and Fox Trader.
However, Zerodha has a stronger focus on technology and investment which makes it a better trading platform with quality tools and customer support. It has 4 times more customer base compared to Upstox. Both have their own retail brokerage services which started almost at the same time in 2009-10.
On brokerage terms, Zerodha and Upstox charge Rs 0 brokerage for equity delivery trades. For intraday and F&O, Zerodha charges flat Rs. 20 or 0.03% (whichever is lower) per executed order while Upstox charges Rs 20 per order executed or 0.05% (whichever is lower) for both buy and sell orders.
Upstox and Zerodha, both are online discount stock brokers and provide excellent services. Zerodha ranks 1st and Upstox 2nd among the top discount brokers of India. There are a few similarities and differences in the offerings of both Upstox and Zerodha products. The major difference is the brokerage plans of both companies. While Upstox offers multiple plans for users according to their requirements, Zerodha offers a single plan.
Upstox VS Zerodha difference
Upstox and Zerodha, both are the topmost online discount brokers of India. Both the companies offer unique plans for traders like the free opening of trading accounts and maximum brokerage charges of Rs 20. The major difference is that Upstox also provides 3rd party trading software, Dartstock, NEST Trader, and Fox Trader. However, Zerodha only offers Zerodha Kite as a trading platform.
Similarly, Zerodha offers a few more services to traders compared to Upstox. Zerodha has only one simple plan for traders, while Upstox offers a priority plan of Rs 30 per trade which has up to 25x leverage on Intraday, Futures & Options. Zerodha also has a support portal, forum, charts and multiple education initiatives which lack in Upstox.
To answer this question, we can say that these are two service providers who offer 100% the same services, with the same plan.

The major difference we can say is Zerodha has invested more in learning. Zerodha Varsity, Zerodha support portal, Zerodha Q&A and Z-connect are a haven for new as well as experienced investors/traders. You can get an in-depth learning experience with Zerodha.
Where Upstox also started the same practice, but not able to match with the Zerodha Quality.
Second difference we have observed is Zerodha is trying to make the maximum thing in an automated way so investors/traders need not depend on call & trade service or support call. Zerodha takes each and every investor query very seriously and tries to resolve the same for all customers with the help of technology. With that, they are able to reduce workload for employees as well as give better service to Investor.
Zerodha offers the best online trading app – Kite, Web platform – Kite, Direct Mutual fund investment with Zerodha Coin. Online IPO investment via UPI, Apply in buyback online, Fund transfer (In and out) online request, UPI payment integration and online/paperless account opening process.
