Their rate is great. I like the fact that I can send money from the comfort of my home. In my opinion the app doesn't have privacy. They should give users the option of accessing the app only through a password. They do request a password when you want to complete a financial transaction but that is not enough. Anyone that clicks on your app can see all your transactions at first glance. That is not safe.

Very displeased. Will uninstall. My first transfer said more actions needed for an hour after I uploaded my driver's license as a photo ID, so I called customer service and was on hold nearly 45 minutes. They asked lots of questions about how I knew the recipient, and said they would not release the money unless I proved the story was true by providing photos of the stamps in my passport matching stamps in the recipient's passport. Unbelievable!

I had an issue with the sendwave app where it would not allow access beyond the login page. The app would not recognize the three digit security code on the back of my card. Multiple attempts to uninstall and re-install the app did not work either. The good news: I called customer service and they reset my card info which required a re-entry of my info. The app worked immediately after and all this took just a couple of minutes. Lesson learnt, if one solution doesn't work, explore alternatives! I feel like a dummy , I should have called customer service months ago. Thumbs up CS.
