Are ETF commissions different in some way than for stocks? If not, just go to Preferences (F12) > Commissiones and select "IB Bundled". Then click the "Commission Settings" link below that and modify the settings if required.

Cone, thanks.
Yes i know how to setup generally commissions on WL.
But the question was if anybody know from his experience what to setup for IB ETFs.
Yes i can see the price list on IB-Portal, but what about additional "hidden" costs.

afaik, hidden costs are baked into ETF pricing, not in commissions. If you know otherwise, please post a link.
