Forced me to use a non voip phone, can't login to my account basically since they changed their policies without telling me or giving me a plan B. locking me out of my account without any notice. Avoid

Absolute trash. E-transfer deposits were initially instant, then suddenly when I needed the cash right away the cash didn't appear in my account. It was sent the exact same way as I did numerous times before so I know for a fact it's not a bank issue. No email confirmation from shakepay, no explanation, no customer service, just darkness. If you want instant service and response time then Shakepay is NOT the place to go. Try a more reliable service that doesn't keep you in the dark.

I've been using Shakepay for the first time and while I appreciate its simplicity and ease of use for cryptocurrency transactions, I'm quite disappointed with their customer service response time. Recently, I encountered an issue and tried reaching out through their chat feature for assistance. However, it took an unreasonably long time for a representative to respond, leaving me frustrated. I hope they can improve their response time to better serve their users' needs.

Amazingly buggy. Be ready to be extremely frustrated while trying to set up this app. For example, when entering your birthday, which you must enter correctly because it will be verified anyway, when scrolling to the correct month, the day changes. When scrolling to the correct year, it keeps repeating other years (say 1970, 1969, 1968, 1970, 1969, 1968, ...). When recording video of your face for authentication, it looks like it's done recording, but it isn't... I'll just stop there.
