    As I understand it you get paid $1.95 per 100K for adding liquidity if the order is subsequently filled (so you don't pay 2.95 and get 1.95 back, you actually get the 1.95).

    Anyone using them ?

    This might even make it worthwhile to write a FIX application to act as a market maker in some of the wider spread pairs.
  2. Why don't they just lower the commission rate to $1.95?

    You are asking more general a question:

    "Why exchanges pay for adding liquidity?"

    Perhaps, it's business sense. Markets with larger size on bid and offer attract more clients, which means more commissions.
