Do fish love water? Yes! These are live, official stocks from publicly traded companies that have been purchased on the stock exchange.
Likewise, when you give someone the gift of stock, they become real shareholders! They're automatically entitled to all shareholder privileges and benefits, including dividends (if declared), annual reports, the right to attend shareholder meetings, and company voting rights!
A stock certificate is the official piece of paper that is evidence of ownership in one or more shares of a company.
These days, the stock certificates of publicly traded companies are tough to obtain (not to mention highly collectible), but we do all the work for you. And we make it easy and fun!
It's quite simple really!
During checkout, we'll ask for your billing information, and payment in the form of a credit card. Once you've completed your purchase, you'll receive an email receipt. Give it a once-over to make sure everything is spelled correctly! When you order has shipped, you'll receive a final email with a shipment tracking number!
Yes, OneShare.com is completely secure. Any personal information you furnish will be protected, and never disclosed to third parties. Our servers shield your personal information with the latest firewall and encryption techniques as you place your order.
In order to protect you to the fullest extent, we will never store your credit card information at any time.
To assist you in recognizing secure areas of the OneShare website, a small padlock icon will appear in the lower right corner of your web browser.
When this icon is present and in the locked position, you know that all information entered on that page is secure.
Additional online security to protect your personal information from unauthorized use is provided by using advanced SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) encryption.
Yes. However, we offer a free Paper Frame, crafted of thick matte material, for stocks priced below $44. It protects the certificate for those who don't need a wood or metal frame.
Wood and Metal Frames (with plaque): 17.5"w x 15"h
Wood and Metal Frames (without plaque): 17"w x 13.5"h
Paper Frame (with plaque): 16"w x 13.5"h
Paper Frame (free): 13"w x 8.5"h
It's a service fee that covers the cost of acquiring your stock. Your share is issued to your specifications, and we guarantee that your certificate arrives unfolded and in excellent condition. No account fees or minimum deposits are required!
You bet. There's no limit to the number of stock certificates you can purchase. The catch is, we can only sell one share per certificate, and a transfer fee is charged to each share.
If you plan on purchasing several shares at once (ten or more!), contact us for special volume discounts.
Yes! Stock is a wonderful gift for children. Instead of clothes they outgrow and trendy toys they forget about, stock is something kids can learn from and enjoy — forever!
When you place your order, specify that the gift is for a child. You'll need to provide the child's custodian's name as well (a parent or guardian). This person will be listed on the stock certificate with the child!
While we think that everyone should own stock, even babies in the womb, federal regulations require that stock only be issued to persons already born. Do come back once you've welcomed that new baby into the world!
Yes! We love people who share.
The fancy technical term for stock owned by two people is joint tenancy. Click "joint tenancy" when placing your order and provide the co-owners names. Both owners must be at least 18 years of age.
We offer about 130 of the nation's most popular companies. But if there's a stock you don't see here but you feel we should carry, give us a holler!
Yes! Click here.
Orders typically arrive in 3 to 6 weeks (processing time varies by company). If you need something to give this very instant, consider a Gift Announcement!
Absolutely! Just click here.

Ah, the OneShare Start-Up Kit. When you give OneShare as a gift, the Start-Up Kit is the best way to welcome your new shareholder to the big wide world of stock ownership. And the best part? It's free with your order!
The Kit includes a shiny red Congratulations Card (which includes a personalized greeting from you!); the Quick Reference Guide (a fun timeline that lets new shareholders know what to expect); and the Owner's Manual, a full-color, twenty page guide to the care and maintenance of their new stock.
The Start-Up Kit arrives first, in just a few days! Present it in person at the celebration, or have us ship it directly to the shareholder!
The OneShare Gift Announcement is the perfect way to give your gift right now! This beautifully designed announcement features a full-color image of the stock you're giving, plus a personalized message, crafted by you!
Print it yourself, or have us email it to the lucky new shareholder free of charge. We can also send it through the US Post, or overnight it via FedEx. (Additional fees will apply!)
We ship your stock using FedEx, and every order is insured while in transit. A shipment tracking number is dispatched to you via email when your item is enroute. More on shipping.
At OneShare, we want you to love what you order. We place the highest priority on customer satisfaction, and we stand behind the quality of our product.
If your stock was damaged during shipment, or if you notice blemishes that detract from the beauty of your gift, please contact us. We'll be in touch with you immediately to lend a hand.
If you've placed an order but would like to cancel it, please take a moment to review our order cancellation policy before contacting us.
That's easy! We're a gift company that sells stocks one at a time!
But we offer more than just stock. We offer ownership in America's favorite companies. We offer a new and personal way to connect with those companies, and a say in how they're run. We offer truly unique gifts that last a lifetime.
And did we mention fun? That comes standard with each purchase! Read more about how OneShare came to be.
