You can buy, sell or trade Zcash on a number of online marketplaces called exchanges. Individual exchanges offer different options, like which assets you can buy or swap. For every transaction you make, the exchange will take a small fee — typically a fraction of a percent — in order to act as a broker for that transaction.
DISCLAIMER: For your safety, it is recommended that you do your own research before using an exchange. After acquiring Zcash, consider whether moving it to a wallet would be a safer option than keeping it on the exchange.
