Update: Ive been using shakepay for a couple months now and I have had no problems with using the app, the transfers are usually very fast and buying and selling btc has been simple as well as fast. I will continue using this app, rates are fairly low cost. Exchange costs can be expensive no fault of the app. It's been pleasant, easy enough to use, and fast. They suggested it may take up to an hour.... But it was already in my account when I checked back a couple minutes later.

Terrible. No customer service. I sent an e-transfer and still haven't been able to deposit it into my shakepay account. Nobody ever responds when you need assistance. I'm starting to think this is a scam. Stay away from this company....there are hundreds of other apps that work, avoid this one unless you enjoy the stress of wondering if you will ever get your money back. 0 stars Update I cancelled my e-transfer and deleted the app. Ended up using CoinSmart and it worked flawlessly.

Amazing customer support. Super quick reply times through e-mail Edit: had to recently move crypto around and had such a hard time figuring out how to use binance for it. So incredibly confusing and convoluted. Then I remembered I could simply change my crypto to BTC, transfer it over to shakepay to move it where I needed the money. So so simple. Thanks for this app. Takes no time to transfer and the fees are so low ❤️ feels good to know I'm encouraging a local company as well
