It was a good app before, quick and easy way to send money. But since September Trustly feature (sending money to the recepient's bank account) doesn't work. I tried three times and all transactions failed. The support team suggests to send money to the recepient's card but there is a commission for each transaction. I hope all the trouble with Trustly is not organized to force WU users to pay the commission. I am on the verge of deleting the app. Please fix Trustly feature!

The app is very helpfull and works really well, but if you check money rate differences you will notice that you are being scamed. WU takes like 20NOK for transaction, and on top of that they "steal" on exchange rate. Still going to use it because it's fastest way of sending money.
