Can someone please tell me the general commission rules when you have a order that is not filled all at the same time? For example say you place an order to buy 10 contracts and get 5 filled, then 2 then 3. Do you pay commission for 1 or 3 trades? (I hope this makes sense) Does it vary broker to broker?

Brokers charge on the number of contracts. Trade 10 contracts, pay for10 contracts.

You don't pay commission per order, you pay per filled contract, as someone pointed out. And no, this rule doesn't vary with broker, but the price per roundtrip certainly does.

Some exchanges charge order fees on top of execution fees. You will also pay for cancelled or modified orders, if you do not execute. Paid, executed trades usually will give you a credit, which will be deducted from the order fees. This system is applied by some of the options exchanges, ECNs for trading stocks.

For futures you mostly only pay for executions. But here is an example (Interactive Brokers, EUREX) that shows that there are exceptions and that you may have to pay cancellation or modification fees:

The question was not silly at all. Also you see that the answers given were not clear.

Usually you pay execution fees only, but sometimes there are also order fees!
