WAY better than anything else i have ever used. I haven't requested withdrawal through e-transfer yet, but I assume the best with a first class operation like these guys. Everything I have done so far has been flawless and low fees to boot.

This service is not reliable. They routinely have "outtages". They have minimal support on evenings and weekends and no phone support. They have acknowledged that their are technical difficulties preventing my transaction from being linked to my actual shakepay account. Despite 24 hrs and 40+ confirmations, my 2000$ deposit of Bitcoin is still unaccounted for. This is despite things being escalated and me being promised timely answers. Very unimpressed. You can't trust your money here.

It's too expensive to make any deal with this app. Not even they show higher price in buying and lower price when you sell, they deduct an extra fee in each transactions as well.

As with most centralized exchanges, be prepared for them to freeze your account for whatever reason, potentially costing you lots of money. They did it to me and wouldn't unfreeze my account for 24hrs despite contacting them and offering any information required. Lesson learned - I will be using shakepay less from now on.
